VMware vSphere virtualization technologies are evolving the way we think about data centers. Applications are no longer tied to servers. Software is no longer tied to hardware. These technologies are the first steps to cloud computing and unlimited scalability, and to see the full benefit of virtualization you need the entire solution, from applications to storage. Brocade alongside VMware has developed the Brocade® VCS Gateway for NSX that enables enterprises to leverage both virtual and physical hardware architectures for a seamless transition to the Software-Defined Data Center. With Brocade and VMware virtualization technologies, we offer a top-shelf selection of features and products that will help you achieve the a fully virtualized data center.
Brocade high-performance networks supports server virtualization and its logical extension, utility computing, or private cloud computing. Brocade helps companies maximize the benefits of virtualization through centralized, VM-aware network and SAN management and network services. With the recent announcement of the Brocade® VCS Gateway for NSX, Brocade has further enhanced customer benefits with VMware utilizing this solution. Brocade networks provide scalability, which increases IT asset consolidation while improving return on investment. The combined strengths of Brocade and VMware deliver significant benefits for small, medium, and large enterprises across all industries and sectors.
Brocade and VMware Joint VCS Gateway for NSX (VXLAN)
Cloud architectures were initially enabled to provide server virtualization which provided various benefits including operational efficiency and business agility. However, customers deploying cloud architecture start facing roadblocks due to traditional network architectures. Through the Brocade VCS Gateway for NSX, Brocade enables enterprises to leverage both virtual and physical hardware architectures for a seamless transition to the Software-Defined Data Center.

Brocade and VMware Joint Validated VDI Solution
Organizations of all sizes can derive many benefits from deploying a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). The Brocade-VMware solution deploys VMware's innovative virtual end user computing on the Brocade VDX family of data center switches and Ethernet fabric, with converged network adapters (CNA) on the servers. VMware View enhances the reliability, availability, and security of the virtual desktops being deployed. The security server includes a PCoIP secure gateway to enhance desktop security. The high-performance Ethernet fabric is critical to delivering the required response times when virtual desktops are started in the ESX servers and when the applications process and save data onto the storage arrays. Brocade VDX switches use Brocade VCS Fabric technology to provide a flat, high-performance network that can scale horizontally and seamlessly on demand.
Brocade and VMware Joint Business Continuity Solution
Today's businesses heavily rely on the digital infrastructure to perform day-to-day activities. The 24x7 availability of the infrastructure is paramount to ensure successful functioning of any business. Brocade, EMC, and VMware collaborated to build a solution that offers the capability to dynamically migrate applications live across data centers separated by a latency of 10 ms RTT (~550 miles) without business interruption, and enhance the availability of the business applications within the data center. The solution of live application mobility relies on the industry proven VMware Metro vMotion and EMC VPLEX enabled by the Brocade end-to-end storage and IP networking infrastructure.
