Welcome back to the second installment on Brocade 7840 IPEX. Today’s blog is all about improving performance of IP storage applications between data centers, a cornerstone of IPEX. There is A LOT to this pillar, so, I’ve devoted today’s entire blog to just to this subject. Here is a list of pertinent Brocade technologies implemented in IPEX that enhance native IP storage performance:

 

  • Purpose built hardware and software
  • Intolerant IP storage applications
  • WAN Optimized TCP
  • TCP Acceleration
  • End-to-End Flow Control
  • Data batching
  • Jumbo Frames
  • Adaptive Rate Limiting (ARL)
  • QoS (Enforcement and Marking)
  • Compression
  • Scalability
