Brocade VDX 6720 Switch Tops The List Of Most Important Enterprise IT Products For 2010
Brocade (NASDAQ:BRCD) was awarded the “Most Important Enterprise IT Product for 2010” for the Brocade® VDX™ 6720 Data Center Switches by CTO Edge, a publication of IT Business Edge. The Brocade VDX 6720 is the industry’s first true Ethernet fabric switch that is purpose-built for highly virtualized and cloud-optimized data centers.
“From an enterprise IT perspective, the honor of having the most important enterprise IT product of 2010 goes to Brocade for its Brocade VDX 6720 Data Center Switches. While the Brocade VDX 6720 may not be the most famous product of 2010, the Brocade One architecture signals a new era in data center management,” said Mike Vizard, Contributing Editor at CTO Edge, in his online remarks. “Rather than requiring customers to standardize a particular set of servers, storage and networking gear from one vendor to lower operating costs, the Brocade VDX 6720 signals the embedding of management intelligence at Layer 2 of the network. And while most IT organizations have yet to appreciate the impact of this fundamental change to networking in the data center, this offering heralds a change in the way we think about managing data centers for years to come.”
“This recognition is a tremendous honor and validation that the Brocade VDX 6720 switches with Brocade VCS™ technology are a game-changing innovation in the delivery of true cloud-optimized networking,” said John McHugh, Chief Marketing Officer at Brocade. “As Mr. Vizard notes, the Brocade VDX 6720 Data Center Switches are a new family of 10 Gigabit Ethernet offerings that revolutionize Layer 2 Ethernet networking to provide virtual machines with a greater sphere of mobility, increase network utilization, create more resilient networks and most importantly, simplify the management of data center networks.”
Whether organizations want to enhance their classic hierarchical network architectures, deploy flatter scale-out fabrics for virtualized data centers, or converge networks, the Brocade VDX 6720 delivers the innovative technology to enhance and simplify their networks.
