Revolutionizing the Way Data Center Networks Are Built
The Brocade VDX 6720 Switch is a high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fixed configuration switch that supports the most demanding business applications. It is specifically designed to improve network utilization, maximize application availability, increase scalability, and dramatically simplify network architecture in virtualized data centers.

Brocade VDX switches feature Brocade VCS Fabric technology, an innovative approach to networking that enables organizations to build high-performance, cloud-optimized data centers while preserving existing network designs and cabling, and gaining active-active server connections. For scale-out fabric architectures, Brocade VCS Fabric technology allows organizations to flatten network designs, provide Virtual Machine (VM) mobility without network reconfiguration, and manage the entire fabric more efficiently.

The Brocade VDX 6720 Switch offers:

  • High performance and low latency: Provides high performance with 10 GbE ports and ultra-low latency through wire-speed ports with 600 nanosecond port-to-port latency and automated hardware-based Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking
  • Simplified architecture: Simplifies network architectures and enables cloud computing with  Brocade VCS Fabric technology
  • Easy configuration: Enables organizations to manage an entire VCS fabric as a single switch with Brocade VCS Logical Chassis
  • Maximizes network utilization: Allows efficient, load-balanced multipathing at Layers 1, 2, and 3, with multiple Layer 3 gateways
  • Advanced storage connectivity: Provides Ethernet storage connectivity for FCoE, iSCSI, and NAS  
  • Optimizes virtualization: Offers the automation needed to support highly virtualized server and storage environments while enabling the transition to cloud computing
