Recommendation for two switches
I have a new client moving into a new facility. I will need two layer 2 switches 24 or 48 port (preferably GB speeds on all ports) and require SFP ports and GBIC connectors for both switches as they will be connected via fiber. There are no servers at the location and all data is in the cloud so this is as of now only for all PCs to be connected to the internet....but that can change and I would like the switches to managed and capable of growing with the company. I prefer HP procurve as they are less expensive than Cisco, but I am open to suggestions. Thank you for your recommendations.

What is your budget?
Im not sure if ive seen a enterprise switch that supports SFP and GBICS. You can get fiber cables that allows you to connect different fiber connectors together. If you have worked on HP procurves and you are happy with them, I would stick with them.
