A Trusted Leader: You may already know that Brocade is the market leader in IP storage fabrics. What you may not have known is that Brocade provides four times the performance at the same price as our competitors. We recognize that your customers want to know their networks are trusted, tested and reliable. With Brocade network technologies, they have access to some of the leading and most frequently used solutions in the industry with greater performance and value than the competition.

 

An Innovation Engine: There’s a lot of talk in the marketplace about the need for innovation. At Brocade, we put our money where our mouth is: We’re investing 17 percent of our revenue towards research and development. We also recognize that true innovation doesn’t occur in siloes. We’re dedicated to open technologies that allow your customers to use Brocade technology while also working seamlessly with the best in the industry in other categories. As an innovation engine, Brocade both brings to market cutting-edge solutions, while also allowing you and your customers to easily work other vendors to suite their unique needs.

 

A Partner with Eyes Towards the Future: The marketplace is changing and your customer’s needs are evolving. By the year 2020, spending on the Internet of Things is expected to be well into the trillions while mobile growth and cloud spending simultaneously expand. There is no question that these technologies will continue to add traffic to your customers’ networks, requiring them to seek new solutions to address unpredictable and ever-expanding demands. Brocade’s New IP technology is helping meet this demand with our focus on open, software-driven platforms that leverage cloud, mobile, social and big data.
