Nexus 5k Zoning Best Practices

I am working on configuring two nexus 5k's to replace our brocade fibre channel switches. I found the nexus 5k configuration document that has zoning commands but I am looking for best practices if Cisco has one.

Hi,
N5Ks are end of life. Please consider MDS switches if you are looking for FC connectivity. Look at 9132T / 9148T here: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/storage-networking/mds-9100-series-multilayer-fabric-switches/datasheet-listing.html
The newer generation of FC switches offer32G connectivity, with Analytics capability, secure boot, dynamic congestion control and few more critical improvements over N5k.
