Software-Defined Networking (SDN)

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 ever-increasing 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.

Abstract:

Brocade introduces a portfolio of products ready for OpenStack cloud orchestration, with the benefits of open and interoperable cloud architectures. With OpenStack, customers can now more easily implement a reliable and flexible public, private, or hybrid cloud solution.

Abstract:

Brocade supports Network Functions Virtualization with a comprehensive portfolio of software-based networking solutions that enable service providers to support diverse deployment models and network services at scale.

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:

Software-based networking is the most effective way to deploy critical networking tasks while meeting the fundamental business requirements of a cloud.

Abstract:

Brocade networking solutions offer unmatched automation and are built to support scale-out infrastructure, making them ideal for cloud infrastructures that must scale outward rather than upward. Brocade, along with OpenStack, delivers the benefits of open and interoperable cloud architectures.

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:

Software-based networking solutions that are optimized for virtual environments promise sophisticated, multitiered networks within and between virtual environments. This white paper examines the use of network segmentation in highly virtualized environments.

Abstract:

Dynamic orchestration and provisioning of campus network resources using Software-Defined Networking (SDN).

Abstract:

Brocade software-based networking and security solutions enable programmable networking without changes to network or security configurations, ensuring a smooth transition to the flexible, agile SDN networks of the future, so that enterprises can build toward an SDN environment today.

Abstract:

In the rush to implement virtualization, many IT managers are leaving their network vulnerable to attack, needlessly complicating their disaster recovery plan, and double-spending on network infrastructure.
