Well, word is getting out about the VDX 6720 family of data center switches in the analyst community. CTO Edge said the Brocade VDX 6720 switch tops the list of most important enterprise IT products for 2010..
In the write up on this top 10 list, Mike Vizard wrote this about why the VDX 6720 with VCS technology deserved to be at the top of the list:
"But as significant as tablets may be, from an enterprise IT perspective, the honor of having the most important enterprise IT product of 2010 goes to Brocade for its VDX 6720 Data Center Switches.While the VDX 6720 may not be the most famous product of 2010, the Brocade Onearchitecture signals a new era in data center management. Rather than requiring customers to standardize a particular set of servers, storage and networking gear from one vendor to lower operating costs, the VDX 6720 signals the embedding of management intelligence at Layer 2 of the network.
This is a great endorsement of the value of VCS Technology for enterprises who need to simplify their LAN infrastructure, extend virtualization without fighting network issues and prepare the way for converged networking.
