Brocade VCS Fabrics and NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP

Built on more than 20 years of innovation, NetApp’s clustered Data ONTAP combines the richest data management feature set with clustering for unlimited scale, operational efficiency, and non-disruptive operations. Combined with Brocade VCS Fabric technology, this joint solution reduces the management burden that comes with the scale-out of network-attached storage (NAS) environments. Together, we make it possible to grow your NAS as needed, seamlessly manage unpredictable data growth, and experience zero downtime while scaling.

MetroCluster Solution from NetApp and Brocade

In today's economic environment, IT managers want high-availability solutions that are both cost-effective and simple to manage. NetApp MetroCluster integrates with Brocade SAN switches to extend continuous data availability up to 100km, allowing customers to access their data if a failover occurs within a building, on a campus, or across a metropolitan area. The combined NetApp-Brocade MetroCluster solution offers continuous data availability at half the cost and complexity of traditional solutions.

NetApp for Microsoft Private Cloud with Brocade

This solution is comprised of Brocade and NetApp hardware supporting the Microsoft Hyper-V platform running on Intel reference hardware with two Brocade VDX™ 6720 switches for a fully converged network supporting both data and storage protocols.

Building a Dynamic Cloud Environment

Fujitsu, Brocade, and NetApp have built a dynamic cloud solution using best-in-class products. This dynamic cloud environment serves as the foundation for a highly mobile and dynamic hypervisor-agnostic, open computing infrastructure built on Fujitsu servers, NetApp storage®, and Brocade FCoE switches.

Deployment Blueprint for VDI

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) delivers dedicated desktop environments—in contrast to the traditional model where each user has a desktop machine with its own operating system and applications. Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 supports VDI deployments through an integrated Hyper-V hypervisor. To maximize VDI benefits, it is important to address special requirements around storage performance and efficiency, as well as manageability. NetApp unified storage offers compelling capabilities that can meet these challenges in a Hyper-V environment.

NetApp and Brocade’s Cloud-Optimized SAN Platforms

NetApp offers Brocade cloud-optimized SAN platforms, which include the DCX8510 Backbone family—both 8- and 4-slot models—and the Brocade 6510 Switch. With these solutions, enterprises can realize the full potential of private cloud storage.
