The Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager 10.3 (Brocade vTM) offers a new bare-metal deployment option for customers wishing to install on their own Intel x86 servers. This is in addition to the usual options of software, virtual appliance or cloud: this new Appliance platform brings the same comprehensive virtual ADC capability for enterprises wishing to deploy a high performance stand-alone appliance in the data center or DMZ.
This new version of Brocade vTM will also be made available on the Google Cloud Platform, available for customers needing advanced application management capability which complements the load-balancing features already available on the Google Cloud Platform.
Highlights in this release include:
Bare-Metal Appliance Image - Brocade vTM is now available as a bare-metal appliance image which can be installed on certified bare-metal server platforms. The Brocade vTM appliance image, available as either an ISO image or for PXE installation, is the ideal solution for enterprises looking to deploy ADC and load balancer services on high-performance Intel x86 servers. For more information on qualified server configurations, see the article Brocade vTM Hardware Compatibility List.
