Brocade Technology & Architecture

Brocade VCS Technology

Innovative Brocade VCS™ technology helps organizations flatten their networks to reduce both complexity and cost. This unique technology brings the first Ethernet fabric architectures to the data center, enabling cloud-optimized networking and a wide range of business advantages.

SAN Fabric Technology

The Fibre Channel protocol and Brocade have been intimately connected since the development of the first Brocade Fibre Channel platforms over 15 years ago. Today, organizations worldwide rely on Brocade Gen 5 Fibre Channel (16 Gbps) Storage Area Network (SAN) solutions in their mission-critical data centers to deliver unmatched reliability, simplicity, and performance.

Ethernet Fabric

Compared to classic hierarchical Ethernet architectures, Ethernet fabrics provide higher levels of performance, utilization, availability, and operational simplicity to meet the business needs of virtualized data centers today and into the future.


Brocade develops and enhances Ethernet networking technologies that address today's business requirements and provide a future-proof foundation for continued growth.


With more than a decade of research and development in IPv6 networking, Brocade has developed a non-disruptive set of solutions to completely transition or simultaneously support both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols. To address the needs for security and manageability, often overlooked by many networking vendors, Brocade supports extended security features for IPv6, as well as embedded sFlow technology.

Standards Leadership

By investing in new technologies and interoperability labs, Brocade leads the way in standards development and facilitates end-to-end interoperability in heterogeneous environments.


Brocade offers the highest level of fabric switching and device compatibility, helping organizations maximize the value of their network infrastructure investments.

Software-Defined Networking

Traditional networks and data centers are being stretched to their limits. They were never designed for today's astronomical growth in bandwidth-intensive applications–and the growing demand for speed, scalability, and resilience. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a powerful new network paradigm designed to address these issues. Brocade leads the way in SDN technologies to help unleash the power, intelligence, and analytics of networks with a flexible, end-to-end cloud-based solution.


It’s easy to see why enterprises are moving toward cloud infrastructures. Transitioning to a cloud computing environment promises many benefits, including greater economies of scale and greater flexibility to adopt new application workloads. OpenStack is an open-source software that delivers a massively scalable cloud operating system designed to enable end-to-end data center orchestration.
