    Hi, does Aruba CX spine and leaf switch (8325, 8320) supports FCOE? 

    Thank you.

    Hi! Aruba 8320 and 8325 Switch Series don't support FCoE. AFAIK no other Aruba 8xxx Series supports it. Specifically about FCoE I think is valid what was written here some time ago.

    If you need FCoE currently you should start to explore some of the current HPE FlexFabric switch series such as (examples):

    HPE FlexFabric 12900E Switch Series
    HPE FlexFabric 5945 Switch Series
    HPE FlexFabric 5940 Switch Series
    HPE FlexFabric 5900 Switch Series (and the HPE FlexFabric 5900CP Switch Series)
    HPE FlexFabric 5710 Switch Series
    HPE FlexFabric 5700 Switch Series

    So that is not possible to have Aruba switches from campus to DC already.

    Well...it's possible to cover both areas...but FCoE is currently out-of-scope (AFAIK) when you speak of ArubaOS-CX OS based Switch Series (or ArubaOS-Switch OS based Switch Series)...I tend to think that - still - deployment of lossless FC SANs still makes a lot of sense in certain DC scenarios.
