Brocade Delivers New Adaptive Networking Services
These network services are available as features on the new Brocade DCX(TM) Backbone, which was also introduced with the networking services.
Brocade has introduced new Brocade Adaptive Networking services, addressing evolving requirements to manage virtualisation in the data centre. These network services are available as features on the new Brocade DCX(TM) Backbone, which was also introduced with the networking services.
"As IT organisations deploy greater numbers of virtual servers with networked storage to consolidate resources and improve utilisation, they must be able to efficiently adapt to the dynamic management and provisioning needs of the 'virtualised' data centre," said Enterprise Strategy Group Analyst Bob Laliberte. "The replacement of static, dedicated connections between physical servers and storage with dynamic connections between virtual resources create new management requirements and greater potential for congestion. Brocade Adaptive Networking services combined with the Brocade DCX Backbone offer innovative solutions to help simplify and accelerate effective management of virtualised data centres."
Brocade highlighted four key Adaptive Networking services for the increasingly virtualised data centre which are, Adaptive Fabric Quality of Service (QoS); Adaptive Traffic Management services; Dynamic Fabric Profiling services; And Adaptive Policy Management services.
The two companies have released the first set of solutions and services.
