Brocade launches 'industry first' for IP storage portfolio.

Brocade has introduced what it claims is "the industry's first purpose-built IP storage connectivity portfolio for data centre and disaster recovery".

The solution set is particularly focused on IP storage SLAs,

overcome outages, and simplified infrastructure. Components include Fabric

Vision technology for the Brocade VDX 6740 switch, for network management,

monitoring, and alerting; advanced IP storage extension for the Brocade 7840

extension switch; and unified storage management for Brocade Fabric Vision.

"The growth of business-critical IP storage workloads is

accelerating while SLAs are becoming more stringent," said Yarob Sakhnini,

regional director, MEMA at Brocade. "Management costs and infrastructure

complexity are increasing.

"Traditional Ethernet networks were never designed to

address the needs of IP storage. Shared networks simply cannot handle the

growth of business-critical workloads on IP storage. The network today matters

more than ever for IP storage. Brocade has taken the lead in addressing these

issues by introducing dedicated network solutions optimised for IP storage."
