Designed to scale out Brocade VCS fabrics, the Brocade VDX 8770 Switch supports complex, highly dynamic environments with dense virtualization and extensive automation requirements. The Brocade VDX 8770 is a highly scalable, low-latency 1/10/40/100 GbE modular switch, available in both 8U four-slot and 15U eight-slot versions.

The Brocade VDX 8770 supports the most demanding data center networking needs. Highlights include:

  • Simplifies and automates network architectures to enable elastic cloud networking with Brocade VCS Fabric technology
  • Manages an entire multitenant Brocade VCS fabric as a single switch through Brocade VCS Logical Chassis, with REST APIs to allow higher-level management frameworks
  • Provides efficiently load-balanced multipathing at Layers 1, 2, and 3, and multiple active Layer 3 gateways
  • Delivers 1/10/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) wire-speed switching with auto-trunking Inter-Switch Links (ISLs) for non-disruptive scaling
  • Enables connectivity for over 1,000 server ports with scale-out fabrics, 10,000 ports with multifabrics, and 100,000 ports using multifabrics with overlays
  • Simplifies Virtual Machine (VM) mobility and management with automated, dynamic port profile configuration and migration
  • Is designed to support Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technologies within data, control, and management planes
