To meet dynamic and growing business demands, data centers are evolving into highly virtualized environments and cloudbased architectures. This approach enables organizations to consolidate and simplify their IT resources, resulting in increased business agility and lower capital and operating expenses. However, enterprise data centers must keep pace with the changes driven by increasingly virtualized workloads and storage resources. Selecting the right network is therefore key to realizing the full benefits of these cloud-based architectures. By treating the network as a strategic part of a highly virtualized environment, organizations can increase optimization and efficiency even as they rapidly scale their environments.
The Brocade 6520 switch meets the demands of growing, dynamic workloads and private cloud storage environments by delivering market-leading Gen 5 Fiber Channel technology and capabilities. The Brocade 6520 is a high-density, purposebuilt, foundational building block for large and growing Storage Area Network (SAN) infrastructures. It provides industry-leading scalability, reliability, and 16 Gbps performance in a flexible, easy-to-deploy enterprise-class switch, enabling greater data center consolidation, operational efficiency, and business continuity. In addition to increased throughput, it helps improve bandwidth utilization, security, and network visibility and management through in-flight data compression and encryption and advanced diagnostics. It's an ideal switch for bandwidth-intensive workloads, evolving virtualized data centers, and private cloud architectures.
