High-Performance Enterprise-Class Stackable Switches for the Network Edge

The Brocade FCX Series of switches provides new levels of performance, scalability, and flexibility required for today's enterprise campus and data center networks. With advanced capabilities, these switches deliver performance and intelligence to the network edge in a flexible 1U form factor that helps reduce infrastructure and administrative costs.

Abstract:

Brocade sets the industry standard for resiliency and high availability by enabling non-stop networking in data center and campus environments. This enables organizations to achieve a competitive advantage in their network infrastructures.

Abstract:

New high-performance 10 GbE ports can be used to connect both storage and servers into the existing iSCSI network. Existing servers with 1 GbE connections can access the newly deployed 10 GbE storage; and new servers with 10 GbE… connections can access excising 1 GbE storage. This allows you to utilize 10 GbE iSCSI storage for higher-performance server access to storage or to support more 1 GbE servers per storage array.
