At VMWorld 2011 today, Brocade unveiled Brocade Network Subscription. Brocade Network Subscription is a new acquisition model that allows for exciting increases in flexibility, as well as resource allocation and management. Put simply, it allows businesses, such as managed service providers and cloud hosting providers, to control their network infrastructure on a month-to-month basis without requiring any upfront capital investment.
The features of the Brocade Network Subscription model mean that service providers can match their network capacity and offerings to their revenues with significantly more ease than is possible through other acquisition models. It is perfect for service providers looking to build out their cloud services infrastructure. Brocade's fully supported, "pay-as-you-go" model gives an unprecedented amount of control to service providers when it comes to their network capacity. They can increase or decrease capacity and refresh parts of their network at their discretion in a manner that provides the best possible benefit to them at that very moment. There is no longer a need to go over-capacity and hope that future revenues will make up for the costs.
Brocade Network Subscription takes the "cloud service delivery model" and applies that to businesses' financial side. The cloud is starting to move beyond the hype, and its effects are far-reaching. Check out the Brocade Network Subscription page for more information!
