With our announcement of new and upcoming VCS releases on 9/18, we talked quite a bit about multitenancy and general fabric manageability and orchestration. One interesting new feature that didn't get a lot of attention at the time is AutoQoS for NAS. VCS fabrics have a strong following among storage administrators who like the familiar Brocade resilience, losslessness and automation for their storage networks--just as important for IP storage as for FC storage.


I invited my colleague Dave Phillips, Director of Product Management, to give you some further context on how and why VCS fabrics are used in IP storage environments, and why we introduced the AutoQoS feature.
