Industry-leading Brocade switches are the foundation for high-performance connectivity in storage, IP, and converged network environments. These highly reliable, scalable, and available switches are designed for a wide range of environments—enabling a low TCO and fast ROI.
The Brocade 8470 Switch Module for IBM BladeCenter is a highly integrated solution that supports connectivity to IP LANs and Fibre Channel SANs. It includes Dynamic Ports on Demand (DPoD) capabilities to enable scalability from 16 to 30 ports. This feature also supports the 16-port entry module in IP LAN, Fibre Channel SAN, or mixed environments. The Brocade 8470 is the only BladeCenter converged solution with native 8 Gbps Fibre Channel connectivity, and it supports native connectivity to third-party SANs.
The Brocade 8000 is a top-of-rack link layer (Layer 2) DCB/FCoE switch with 24 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports for LAN connections and eight Fibre Channel ports (with up to 8 Gbps speed) for Fibre Channel SAN connections. This reliable, high-performance switch provides advanced Fibre Channel services, supports Ethernet and DCB capabilities, and is managed by Brocade DCFM.
The Brocade VDX® 6720 Data Center Switch is a high-performance, ultra-low latency wire-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fixed port switch. It supports several connectivity options, including classic ToR server deployments, Ethernet fabrics, and Ethernet storage connectivity.
The Brocade VDX® 6730 Data Center Switch is a 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fixed port switch with LAN and native Fibre Channel ports. It supports multiple connectivity options, including classic ToR server deployments, Ethernet fabrics, and Ethernet storage connectivity for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI, NAS, and bridging Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks (SANs) and Ethernet fabrics.
The Brocade Converged 10GbE Switch Module and Brocade 2-Port 10Gb Converged Network Adapter are part of a leading Converged Ethernet solution for IBM BladeCenter that offers Fibre Channel investment protection, maximum bandwidth and performance, and simplicity in a converged environment. The Brocade Converged 10GbE Switch Module also features Dynamic Ports on Demand capability through the Port Upgrade Key. This capability allows you to enable any combination of Fibre Channel and Ethernet ports based on your infrastructure requirements, and to experience Converged Ethernet benefits without significant investment.
