Brocade Releases Gen 5 Fibre Channel Storage Area Network

Brocade announced the company's Gen 5 Fibre Channel storage area network (SAN) technologies play an essential role in delivering reliability and predictable performance for the new EMC(r) VSPEX(r) with VMAX3(TM) 100K converged infrastructure solution that was unveiled at EMC World. The new solution is based on the EMC VSPEX reference architecture and is designed for virtualized cloud-based delivery and management of IT resources. VSPEX with VMAX3 100K is purpose built to deliver and manage predictable service levels at scale for hybrid clouds. This is designed to provide customers with the ability to seamlessly bridge their VMware private cloud deployment with public clouds, paving the way forward to hyperconsolidate and connect on- and off-premise workloads into a hybrid cloud environment. Brocade Gen 5 Fibre Channel SAN switches and management software provide a solid foundation between the VMAX3 100K storage arrays and servers. All elements of this reference architecture have been tested and certified as a solution by EMC. The SAN for VSPEX with VMAX3 100K is built on Brocade Gen 5 Fibre Channel SAN switching and Fabric Vision(TM) monitoring and network diagnostic technologies. Branded and sold through the EMC Connectrix(r) family, the Brocade SAN helps ensure predictable performance, unmatched resiliency and ultra-fast access to data stored on the EMC VMAX3 100K arrays, each of which are necessary for ensuring predictable service levels, at scale, for hybrid clouds.
