Videocon D2h Selects Brocade Ethernet Fabrics To Turbocharge its Data Center Networks

Videocon's Direct-To-Home (DTH) satellite broadcaster has selected Brocade(r) Ethernet fabric solutions to revamp its data center networks. Videocon d2h, a unit of Videocon Industries, deployed innovative Brocade VCS(r) Fabric Technology running on Brocade VDX(r) switches within its new and existing data centers in order to support continued rapid business growth.

Australian Genome Research Facility Selects Brocade to Handle Big Data Growth

Driven by the unrelenting growth of genomic data sets, the Australian Genome Research Facility is deploying a high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) core network across its entire estate, with its Melbourne node the first to go live with new switching infrastructure from Brocade. The AGRF utilizes cutting-edge technology to provide contract genomics services to academic, applied research and commercial markets spanning biomedicine, plant and animal science, microbiology, evolutionary biology and biodiversity. One of the issues faced by AGRF and the genomic research community at large is coping with Big Data, with the latest generation of gene sequencing technology generating data files of over a terabyte every week off each of its five systems in operation. At the AGRF's Melbourne node the IT infrastructure has been upgraded to deliver the compute power, storage capacity and network performance to handle the growing data challenge. To replace its legacy network switches, Gismon said AGRF went to market for a solution that could deliver low-latency 10 GbE performance at wire-speed, with a simplified network architecture and streamlined network management. He said the focus was on a cost-effective single-vendor solution that could handle three years of projected network traffic growth, to be rolled out across all AGRF sites.

Avnet Technology Solutions Adopts Brocade Ethernet Fabric Across its Australian Data Centres

To capture cloud-based growth opportunities and support its reseller network, Avnet Technology Solutions has deployed Brocade Ethernet fabric at its two Australian data centers. The new network infrastructure, based on Brocade VDX(r) switches and VCS(r) Fabric technology, is a key building block in Avnet's plan to fully virtualize and automate the data centers to support self-provisioning of cloud computing resources by its Australian resellers. To provide a strong foundation for its cloud data center operations, Avnet chose to implement an Ethernet fabric that, as a single large Ethernet domain, would deliver the agility and performance required to support virtualized data centers. Requirements included 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) server access ports, operating at wire speed and with very low port-to-port latency; self-configuration and self-management capabilities; and support for both VXLAN and NVGRE, two emerging Software-Defined Networking (SDN) protocols for virtual machine mobility. To benefit from the latest Brocade virtualized data center network technology, Avnet became involved in the global pilot program for the Brocade VDX 6740 Switch, and then it became one of the earliest adopters of the new switch in the Asia Pacific region. The Brocade engineering group worked with the Avnet team in Sydney to ensure the new cloud-infrastructure was properly set up, and provided dedicated training on the new technology.
