Abstract:

This paper provides a comprehensive set of best practices to guide data center SAN architecture and design.

Abstract:

Brocade® Advanced Performance Monitoring—based on Brocade Frame Filtering technology and a unique performance counter engine—is a comprehensive tool for monitoring the performance of networked storage resources. This ASIC-based monitoring tool helps reduce the total cost of ownership and over-provisioning while enabling Storage Area Network (SAN) performance tuning, reporting of Service Level Agreements (SLAs), and greater administrator productivity.

Abstract:

Using the intelligent PoE/PoE+ capabilities of the Brocade FastIron family can ensure last-minute power to critical devices while saving operating costs.

Abstract:

Describes procedures for replacing a Brocade Mi10K Director at the core of a Brocade M-EOS fabric with a Brocade DCX Backbone in Interopmode 2 or 3.

Abstract:

Leading cloud services provider meets growing demand for increased network performance and capacity with Brocade Ethernet fabrics.

Abstract:

Discusses the integration of the Brocade DCX Backbone into existing Brocade Fabric OS SAN infrastructures.

Abstract:

This Solution Brief describes and illustrates scenarios that demonstrate how Brocade fabrics can be connected to remote data centers through Ciena optical networking systems.

Abstract:

Describes procedures for replacing a Brocade Mi10K Director at the core of a Brocade M-Enterprise (M-EOS) fabric with a Brocade DCX of DCX-4S in Interopmode 2 or 3 and moving the Brocade Mi10K to the edge.

Abstract:

Details the Brocade NetApp key management solution for encrypting data-at-rest using the NetApp LKM Appliance with Brocade encryption devices

Abstract:

Many services, such as mobile Internet and mobile TV, require high bandwidth, and current backhaul infrastructures are not optimized to handle this traffic. Advanced routers and switches from Brocade enable highly scalable designs for the eventual convergence of voice and data infrastructure that can deliver new multimedia services.

Abstract:

Describes and illustrates scenarios that demonstrate how the Brocade DCX Backbone platform can be added non-disruptively into the core of existing SANs and new data center fabrics.

Abstract:

Addendum to the Brocade FastIron SuperX Family Data Sheet: additional RFC Support

Abstract:

This paper explores the architectural advantages of the Brocade 48000 and ways that IT organizations can leverage its performance capabilities, modular flexibility, and “five-nines” reliability.

Abstract:

This paper delves into the experiences of 30 IT managers who relocated their data centers, analyzing the primary drivers, issues, strategies, and lessons learned.

Abstract:

This paper describes the basics of Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and how Brocade FCoE solutions provide greater choice in modern data centers.

Abstract:

This paper explains the concept of Buffer-to-Buffer credits and provides an easy method to calculate the optimal number of credits required for maximum FICON performance.

Abstract:

In order to truly align the enterprise infrastructure strategy with business requirements, organizations must be free to choose the solutions that best meet their unique needs and based upon open standards, not proprietary, closed systems.

Abstract:

The Brocade DCX Backbone provides industry-leading performance, scalability, and investment protection, unleashing the full capabilities of IBM System z, especially IBM zEnterprise 196 (z196) solutions

Abstract:

This paper examines how FICON channel architecture greatly expands the distance, throughput, and scale of implementation for IBM mainframe environments.

Abstract:

Today, Brocade is designing highly efficient data infrastructure solutions and participating in key industry initiatives such as The Green Grid consortium and the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Green Storage initiative.

Abstract:

This paper describes how Brocade Adaptive Networking Services help simplify fabric management by dynamically adjusting bandwidth and fabric resources to meet application service levels.

Abstract:

Highlights the value of highly available and scalable application switching and details the specialized capabilities required in the application switches for deployment in a SIP service infrastructure for maximum benefit.

Abstract:

New features in Brocade Fabric OS 7.0 help increase SAN security in enterprise environments to better protect sensitive data.

Abstract:

The ability to transport Ethernet over different transport technologies raises the exciting proposition of Ethernet services not only in campus or metro networks but also at a global level.

Abstract:

This paper explores both the technical and business reasons for implementing a switched FICON architecture instead of a direct-attached storage FICON architecture.
