Brocade Collaborates with Intel to Deliver.Brocade Collaborates with Intel to Deliver Fibre Channel over Ethernet SolutionsBrocade FCoE technology to utilize high-performance Intel hardware as foundation for new FCoE capabilities Brocade[R] (Nasdaq: BRCD), the leader in data center networking solutions that help enterprises connect and manage their information, announced today that it will be working with Intel Corporation (company) Intel Corporation - A US microelectronics manufacturer. They produced the Intel 4004, Intel 8080, Intel 8086, Intel 80186, Intel 80286, Intel 80386, Intel 486 and Pentium microprocessor families as well as many other integrated circuits and personal computer networking to deliver next-generation server adapters for evolving data center networks.

Today's announcement further advances the Brocade Data Center Fabric (DCF DCF
See: Discounted Cash Flows ) architecture for high performance, multiprotocol data center networks. The Brocade approach will provide customers with a new server connectivity option to seamlessly protect and extend their current investments in Storage Area Networks (SANs). The evolving FCoE standard is currently being worked on and supported by more than 15 Fibre Channel Industry Association (FCIA FCIA
See: Foreign Credit Insurance Association ) members, including Brocade. FCoE offers a new choice for consolidated server A multiprocessor computer system consisting of several rack-mounted or modularized CPU boards that use fault tolerant components and share disk storage. SMP versions share a common memory pool. I/O (Input/Output) The transfer of data between the CPU and a peripheral device. Every transfer is an output from one device and an input to another. See PC input/output.
I/O - Input/Output connectivity in the data center, which will result in a greater quantity of servers having access to the well-understood benefits of storage networks. Customer benefits of this technology will include:* Seamless extension and protection of existing storage investments * Lower, long-term operating costs operating costs npl → gastos mpl operacionales via consolidated connectivity and management * A management model consistent with that used in today's SANs * A unified data center fabric that meets the reliability, latency, and performance requirements for storage and broader data center connectivity * Additional server connectivity options for more cost-effective data center networking * A reduction in multiple server I/O and parallel network infrastructure commonly used in data centers The FCoE standard is currently being worked on in the INCITS INCITS INternational Committee for Information Technology Standards Fibre Channel (T11) Technical Committee and is expected to be completed in the second half of 2008. Additional information on FCoE is available on the T11 Web site at www.t11.org. "Our collaboration with Intel brings together Brocade's expertise in Fibre Channel with Intel's strength in Ethernet adapters to enable the consolidation of server I/O into a unified data center fabric," said Madhu Matta, Vice President of the Brocade Server Connectivity Division. "The solution will give our customers a choice to enable greater consolidation of server connectivity while preserving the benefits of their current storage networking and data center infrastructure." "Intel believes that unified fabric over Ethernet will further simplify the virtualized data center," said Tom Swinford, General Manager of Intel's LAN (Local Area Network) A communications network that serves users within a confined geographical area. The "clients" are the user's workstations typically running Windows, although Mac and Linux clients are also used. Access Division. "The enhanced Ethernet features in Intel's 10 Gigabit Ethernet An Ethernet standard that transmits at 1 Gbps. Used mostly to connect high-end workstations and servers as well as for network backbones, Gigabit Ethernet transmits full duplex from point to point using switches and half duplex in a shared environment (CSMA/CD) using a hub. adapters will help enable Brocade's solution to provide the reliable, high-performance server connectivity that our LAN and SAN customers are seeking." The products and technology resulting from this collaboration will be available in early 2009.
