A Foundation for Server Virtualization, Flash Storage, and Cloud Architectures
Networks need to evolve in order to support the growing demands of highly virtualized environments, new flash-based storage, and private cloud architectures. Fibre Channel, the de facto standard for storage networking, is evolving with the data center. Gen 5 Fibre Channel is the purpose-built, data center-proven network infrastructure for storage, delivering unmatched reliability, simplicity, and 16 Gbps performance. Brocade DCX 8510 Backbones with Gen 5 Fibre Channel delivers a new level of scalability and advanced capabilities to this robust, reliable, and high-performance technology. This enables organizations to continue leveraging their existing IT investments as they grow their businesses. In addition, they can consolidate their Storage Area Network (SAN) infrastructures to simplify management and reduce operating costs.

Additional highlights include:

  • Unleashes the full potential of private cloud storage with unmatched scalability, performance, and reliability
  • Leverages Brocade UltraScale chassis connectivity for simpler, flatter, low-latency fabrics that reduce network complexity, management, and costs
  • Optimizes data center connectivity over distance with integrated high-performance metro and global connectivity
  • Simplifies and centralizes end-to-end Storage Area Network (SAN) management with comprehensive diagnostics, monitoring, and automation through Brocade Fabric Vision technology
  • Maximizes performance for I/O- and bandwidth-intensive applications
  • Protects investments in existing SAN fabrics and automation tools while reducing operational costs and minimizing business disruption
