Abstract:

Brocade and VMware's unified network provides seamless transition between the physical and virtual architecture.

Abstract:

Ethernet fabric architectures built on Brocade VCS Fabric technology simplifies network architecture and management and features for supporting future “software-defined” networks, as well as a cost-effective point of entry that enables the transition to mission-critical networks in cloud data centers.

Abstract:

SDN introduces new opportunities to centralize network services more rapidly, but also new forms of complexity. Brocade VCS Fabric technology provides unique automation capabilities and resilience in the physical fabric, as well as integration and hardware support for leading SDN solutions.

Abstract:

This paper provides an overview of SDN, its expected role in cloud-optimized networks, and how Brocade is implementing SDN vertically and across its portfolio to provide users with a truly open cloud-optimized network, built on a resilient, automated fabric foundation.

Abstract:

As cloud environments become the norm, network segmentation is a critical consideration. Brocade VCS Fabric technology provides a variety of means for supporting multitenancy in cloud environments, including hypervisor-based Layer 3 approaches and an innovative native Layer 2 solution.
