With the World Cup in full swing, soccer fans around the world, as well as the media outlets and others who serve them, are generating, transmitting and consuming huge amounts of data, much of which is traversing to EMC storage via Brocade Fibre Channel SANs.
And just as the World Cup continues to unite soccer fans around the globe, Fibre Channel SANs are a key unifying element for the new storage systems launched by EMC today at their high-profile Redefine Possible event in London.
From a macro point-of-view, Brocade® Gen 5 Fibre Channel directors, switches, and management software provide a reliable, high-performance foundation for the new EMC® VMAX®3 and XtremIO™ storage solutions. With legions of fans all over the world, Brocade and EMC combine to form an unstoppable offensive (power, speed, and performance) and defensive (reliability, availability, and resilience) team that’s focused on winning.
Flash storage is another common element across all of the new EMC systems launched today. To support this EMC innovation, Brocade Gen 5 Fibre Channel switches are purpose built for flash-based storage arrays to maximize system performance, scalability and availability. No other networking technology comes close to ensuring that maximum bandwidth is always available between servers and storage.
