OpenStack Summit

I am very excited to share with you the happenings at Brocade during the OpenStack Summit in Barcelona from October 25-28th.  The perception of Brocade as only a FC-SAN company is quickly fading; while we are leaders in that space, we are also showing some great strides in our developments with OpenStack, including SDN, NFV, Automation and Integration.  At the OpenStack Summit you will see demonstrations of solutions that are available in the market as well as have the opportunity to talk to experts who are driving innovations to manage and orchestrate cloud environments. 


In the realm of SDN and NFV, we’ll showcase the Brocade SDN Controller.   This product is based Open Daylight and is fully tested, documented, and quality assured. The SDN Apps that Brocade delivers today are Brocade Flow Optimizer, Brocade VNF Manager, Brocade Flow Manager, and Brocade Topology Manager. These SDN Apps provide a conduit to the customers from Brocade SDN Controller in order to enable network visibility of the datacenter, thereby ensuring elimination of potential network congestion.  The team that brought you these innovative products is also participating in the OpenStack Design Summit. 


Earlier this year, Brocade acquired a company called StackStorm; this acquisition complements our leadership position within the OpenStack community and enables us to offer both community supported and enterprise version of the StackStorm automation and integration solution.  Read more about what StackStorm is doing at OpenStack Summit and learn about a joint Mirantis and StackStorm solution.
