Scale-Out Performance
The Brocade VDX 8770 Switch is designed to scale out Brocade VCS fabrics and support complex environments with dense virtualization and dynamic traffic patterns—where more automation is required for operational scalability. Available in four-slot and eight-slot versions, the Brocade VDX 8770 provides a highly scalable, low-latency 100/40/10/1 GbE modular switch.
Flexibility with Multiple Line Card Options
The Brocade VDX 8770 supports a variety of wire-speed line cards to offer maximum flexibility in terms of port bandwidth as well as cable and connector technology:
  • 1 GbE: 48×1 GbE line card provides up to 48 SFP/SFP-copper ports
  • 10 GbE: 48×10 GbE line card provides up to 48 SFP+ ports
  • 10 GbE-T: 48×10 GbE line card provides up to 48 RJ45 ports
  • 40 GbE: 12×40 GbE line card provides up to 12 40 GbE QSFP ports
  • 40 GbE: 27×40 GbE line card provides up to 27 40 GbE QSFP ports
  • 100 GbE: 6×100 GbE line card provides up to 6 100 GbE CFP2 ports
Unmatched Simplicity and Automation
VCS Logical Chassis, self-forming and self-healing fabrics, and AutoFabric Provisioning simplify operations and streamlines configuration. Fabric-level REST APIs allow higher-level management frameworks to provide efficient orchestration of VCS fabrics within a cloud context. The single point of management eliminates the need to manually configure and manage each switch, simplifying management, lowering operational costs, and reducing configuration errors with the ability to push software upgrades across the fabric with a single command, accelerating deployment.
Maximum Efficiency and Resiliency
Optimized east-west traffic and multipathing across Layers 1–3 create a flexible network that adapts to changing business conditions and traffic patterns.
Optimized for Virtualization
A variety of features supports VM mobility and eliminates the need to manually configure port profiles.
Support Cloud Computing
Brocade VCS Gateway for NSX unifies virtual and physical architectures while the VCS Virtual Fabric feature provides secure multitenant support.
THE BROCADE VDX 8770 SWITCH AND BROCADE VYATTA CONTROLLER INTEROPERABILITY
The Brocade VDX 8770 Switch operates seamlessly under the Brocade Vyatta Controller. This controller is a quality-assured edition of the OpenDaylight controller code supported by an established networking provider and its leaders within the OpenDaylight community.
