High performance plus low latency

Support virtualized data centers, reduce network congestion, and meet today’s demanding application performance requirements. The Brocade VDX 6740 offers wire speed and non-blocking packet forwarding to meet the capacity requirements of 1/10/40GbE servers and storage.

Simplicity and automation

Streamline configuration and management, maximize efficiency and improve automation in highly virtualized data centers. We build in data center fabric innovations like scalable multitenancy, unification of virtual and physical environments, support for layer 3 gateways, automated storage traffic prioritization, and support for open cloud orchestration.

Efficiency and resiliency

Create a more efficient, resilient and flexible network that adapts to changing business conditions and traffic patterns. Brocade data center fabric technology helps your organization maximize network bandwidth and allows for immediate discovery and recovery across all networking nodes.

Architectural Flexibility

  • Select your architecture of choice to address your network needs and protect your investments
  • Save time and resources with elastic, self-forming, and self-healing fabrics
  • Deliver optimal low-latency support for east-west traffic with per-packet load balancing at Layers 1, 2, and 3
  • Deliver advanced storage networking with improved performance, management, security, span of control and connectivity for FCoE, iSCSI and NAS

High-capacity ports and buffers

  • 1000BASE-T, 10G BASE-T ports, 40 GbE uplink ports, and 24 MB deep buffers
  • Leverage existing wiring infrastructure while moving to a higher bandwidth, from 1000BASE-T to 10GBASE-T
  • Aggregate high bandwidth traffic
  • Industry-leading buffering and  load balanced multipathing handles traffic increases with distribution across ports

Cloud-Optimized Automation

  • Scale out the fabric without adding complexity
  • Support open SDN architectures
  • Use common industry automation tools such as Puppet, Ansible, VMware vRealize plug-ins, and YANG model-based REST and Netconf APIs 
  • Orchestrate and control your cloud through OpenStack and OpenDaylight-based  SDN Controller support
