Summer is still lingering, school is starting and it’s that time of year we pack the Brocade booth (#412) with solution demos ready for VMworld. This year we’ll be taking you on a journey to the New IP by showing how to set direction with Software Defined Data Center, Hybrid Cloud, Converged Infrastructures and network management across virtual infrastructures on the path to agile, compatible and easy to use networks, enabling any application on any device, anywhere…

Come see why NSX runs best on the self-forming Brocade VCS fabric with HW/VTEP integration, enabling you to focus on deploying and operating the virtual network with NSX. Guarantee application performance with vRealize Operations Manager and Log Insight integration which pinpoint visibility into the network from VM through physical infrastructure. Meeting your needs to ensure no bottlenecks or misconfigurations are impacting the application across both application and storage networks regardless of protocol.

 

Agility is key for optimal utilization of resources and capabilities provided with Hybrid Cloud, we will show how to optimize end user application experience with Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager (vTM). From orchestrated deployment of vTM-as-a-Service in your private cloud to deployment in your public cloud directly from the marketplace in the VMware vCloud Air Catalog. The Brocade vTM can inspect traffic in real-time, control service levels to differentiate users and services while scaling with your business growth.

Have a chat with the experts in our Hyper-Converged zone about how infrastructure appliances deliver VM deployments in matter of minutes from power-on with integrated deployment, configuration and management. Learn how you can scale-up or out with hyper-converged and get experience with EVO solutions from our partners at EMC, HDS and Fujitsu, as well as Nutanix compute platform.

In our flash and SSD zone learn about how flash storage enable virtualization of the most demanding workloads increase VM density and meet application demands faster than ever before truly transforming the next generation data center architectures.

Personally, I find VMworld a great place for meeting with peers and sharing ideas on developing agile IT infrastructures to be ready for any new business requirement or application purpose. For the new world where we share and consume information from anywhere and on any device, we need new networks. We need the New IP and its ability for anywhere, any time and any device.

 

I’m ready for any. Are you?
