Expanded OEM Relationship With EMC Delivers Dedicated Storage Networks That Improve Performance, Resiliency and Agility for New IP Workloads
SAN JOSE, CA – Feb 12, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Brocade® (NASDAQ: BRCD), the leader in storage fabric networking solutions, today expanded its longstanding OEM relationship with EMC Corporation by adding Brocade VCS™ Ethernet fabric solutions to EMC’s Connectrix® family of network switches, creating the industry’s first network switch designed for IP storage. Available now, the Connectrix VDX-6740B IP storage switch establishes a resilient, agile and easily-deployed foundation for EMC storage, cloud, deduplication and backup and recovery systems.
“Legacy IP network designs were never intended for today’s New IP applications, such as cloud, mobile, social and big data,” said Jason Nolet, senior vice president, data center switching, routing and analytics products group, Brocade. “Through our extended partnership with EMC, customers can now realize the improved performance, resiliency and agility of a dedicated IP storage network for the growing mission critical nature of their IP storage-based applications.”
EMC customers will deploy the new switch to separate IP storage traffic from other data traffic, a more reliable and efficient approach compared to legacy deployments where storage traffic and all other network traffic share the same network infrastructure.
“Today’s IP storage workloads can benefit from a dedicated IP storage network which establishes the same performance, predictability, availability and operational simplicity that we have been delivering to our Fibre Channel customers for the past 15+ years,” said Jonathan Siegal, vice president, marketing, Core Technologies Division, EMC Corporation.
Enterprises are demanding more flexible, open network architectures that help fulfill the promise of IDC’s Third Platform compute model. “IP storage capacity is doubling nearly every two years, and transitioning to higher-performance, more mission-critical applications,” said Ashish Nadkarni, research director, Storage Systems and Software, at IDC. “To meet these new requirements, organizations should consider dedicated networks for IP-based storage as a better approach to align their networking infrastructures with business needs.”
Fabrics Optimized for IP Storage Now Enabled with EMC Connectrix
“The VDX 6740 will allow us to better guarantee application performance and availability for our VNX environment, particularly for our databases,” said Joshua Olstad, director of IT, Oyster River Cooperative School. “The network infrastructure will be quick to deploy and management will be easier than our legacy network, including the ability to move live virtual machines between servers for load balancing.”
Connectrix VDX solutions are integrated with Connectrix Manager Converged Network Edition (CMCNE), which provides unified management, monitoring and diagnostics for both IP and fibre channel storage networks. Integration with EMC Storage Analytics software delivers actionable performance analysis and enables customers to quickly identify and resolve performance and capacity issues.
