Brocade Extends Gen 6 Fibre Channel Portfolio With A No-Compromise Entry-Level Switch


Brocade announced the Brocade G610, a no-compromise storage switch for always-on connectivity to the all-flash data center. This breakthrough switch leverages the power of brocade gen 6 fibre channel technology, providing up to 32 Gbps performance, unmatched simplicity and enterprise-class functionality that helps organizations adapt to dynamic workloads and new demands for always-on business operations.

Brocade also announced expanded monitoring capabilities through brocade fabric vision technology with the availability of VM insight. VM insight delivers proactive visibility into the health and performance of individual virtual machines (VMS) to help administrators uncover issues before applications are affected.

"The Brocade G610 switch and VM Insight reinforce Brocade's continued commitment to fiber channel innovation to help customers derive more value from their applications and infrastructure," said Jack Rondoni, senior vice president of storage networking at Brocade. "Together with our partner ecosystem, Brocade is making it easy and affordable to deploy Fibre Channel solutions while extending monitoring capabilities in Fabric Vision technology so customers can have unparalleled visibility of VM-level application performance within the storage network."

"The use of all-flash arrays for consolidation of mission-critical primary storage workloads is increasing rapidly, and by 2020 IDC predicts that these types of systems will drive over 80 percent of all primary storage revenues," said Eric Burgener, research director, storage, IDC. "Flash's ability to support much denser workload consolidation is demanding higher-performance host connections, and Brocade's new Gen 6 Fibre Channel portfolio provides that bandwidth with a proven, trusted and highly secure protocol."

"Whole-brain imaging is critical to our research but advances in imaging and microscopy place new demands on our network and storage infrastructure every day," said Jake Carroll, senior information technology manager of research, The University of Queensland's Queensland Brain Institute. "Brocade Gen 6 Fibre Channel solutions massively boost data transfer speeds enabling scientists to maximize the benefits of increased image resolution and high data sampling rates."
