These solution areas, driven by advanced virtualization, are causing data center architects to rethink the current, traditional three-tier network design and consider a migration to a flatter network design. According to a recent IDC report, traditional hierarchical networking approaches simply can't address the bandwidth, latency, and scalability requirements demanded by the advanced virtualization capabilities inherent in the paradigm of the new data center.
Brocade VCS Fabric technology is explicitly designed to meet these challenges, allowing users to greatly decrease the operational costs of networking by providing a highly reliable, simple, scalable networking infrastructure. The Brocade VDX Data Center switches deliver VCS Fabric technology and are revolutionizing the way data center networks are architected. Brocade VCS Fabrics deliver:
New levels of automation that streamline network capacity deployment
Dramatic improvements in efficiency and resource utilization compared to legacy network topologies and protocols
Higher performance and scalability for massive network capacity growth
Greater agility to deploy network services in both virtual and physical form factors
And you can Build Your Own Ethernet Fabric in about 10 minutes. Our own Josh Oelrich shows how during the December 2012 Gartner Data Center Conference:
Josh will be at PEX, too -- stop by Brocade's booth #208 to build one for yourself.
Brocade VCS Fabric technology is ideal for partners who look to deliver scalable EUC solutions, robust and reliable cloud deployments, and SDDC enabling data center networks. Enjoy Partner Exchange 2013!
