Brocade Collaborates with VMware, Inc. to Support the New IP and Advance Adoption of the Software Defined Data Center and Network Virtualization

Brocade announced the company is collaborating with VMware, Inc. to advance solutions that support the New IP by allowing enterprises to more easily transition to software-defined data centers (SDDCs) and adopt network virtualization. Brocade Ethernet and Fibre Channel fabrics will be interoperable with VMware vRealize(r) Operations(TM) 6.0 (formerly the VMware(r) vCenter(TM) Operations Management Suite(TM)) announced at VMworld(r) Europe 2014. This interoperability will help enterprises to realize higher performance, automation, reliability and application and data availability in their data centers. Brocade also announced VMware is participating in Brocade Network Subscription, which enables organizations to acquire both network infrastructure and VMware platform solutions on a subscription basis with pay-as-you-go flexibility. Brocade and VMware will now deliver intelligent and powerful analytics capabilities for both Fibre Channel SAN and IP networks.

QLogic Corp. and Brocade Collaborate to Advance Fibre Channel SAN Fabric Connectivity

QLogic Corp. and Brocade have joined forces to help data center managers extend the power of their Fibre Channel storage area networks (SANs) as part of a shared commitment to enhance end-to-end storage connectivity. The new QLogic suite of end-to-end features enables data center managers to reduce operating expenses and total cost of ownership by accelerating deployment, increasing performance and simplifying management of Gen 5 Fibre Channel SANs featuring Brocade Fabric Vision technology and QLogic 2600 Series adapters. QLogic's new end-to-end enhancements include Brocade ClearLink support, a key Brocade Fabric Vision technology that simplifies deployment and support for high performance fabrics. ClearLink allows storage administrators to run a battery of automated diagnostic tests to assess the health of links or identify issues prior to deployment. By proactively verifying the integrity of critical transceivers, organizations can save time and increase network availability by quickly addressing any physical layer issues without the need for special optical testers.
