It’s probably not a surprise for many people when I say new Internet-ready devices, like smartphones, iPads and laptops, are being added to networks at rates we’ve never seen before. Since these newly added devices require unique Internet addresses to operate, we finally outpaced the remaining capacity of IPv4 addresses.

 

Today we launched the Brocade software release version 12.3 for the Brocade® ServerIron® ADX Series of application delivery switches; it creates a seamless gateway between existing IPv4 networks and new ones built on IPv6. This gateway functionality provides our customers with a pragmatic path to adopt IPv6 technology and support both IPv4 and IPv6 environments simultaneously, offering them a seamless and non-disruptive migration strategy. The new enhancement also delivers investment protection and unmatched simplicity, two of the key customer imperatives of the Brocade One strategy—enabling customers to instantly double the performance of their Brocade ServerIron ADX platforms through a simple software upgrade.

 

Now enough of the seriousness, let’s poke a little fun at ourselves. Check out this infomercial spoof we did dubbed “Load Balancing Bliss”!
