Brocade continues to revolutionize the data center by developing innovative architectures and platforms, striving for the highest level of interoperability, and furthering standards development. Through industry-leading Brocade technologies, organizations can build next-generation data centers that are designed to provide maximum value today and well into the future.
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.
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 has made significant investments in developing and enhancing the technologies that address the needs and requirements of today and tomorrow's Ethernet network infrastructures.
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.
Brocade incorporates intelligence directly into its storage networking solutions to create highly available, scalable, and secure environments for storage applications.
Through investments in new technologies and interoperability labs, Brocade continues to further standards development and facilitate 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 data center infrastructure investments.
Since its inception, Brocade has been a driving force behind open industry standards for data center networking technologies.
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.
