Highly effective and highly scalable unified SAN/LAN infrastructure - The new Brocade VDX series

April 2, 2012

Fujitsu has commenced the sale of the Brocade VDX series of convergent switches. These enable unified Storage Area Network (SAN) and Local Area Network (LAN) infrastructures.
Brocade VDX series offers two models. Brocade VDX 6730 supports Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol and integrated SAN/LAN connectivity. Brocade VDX 6710 provides low-cost 1 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.

Brocade VDX 6730 supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and provides a network architecture with low-latency and wide-bandwidth. This maximizes application availability without bandwidth limits, even as data transfer growth is enabled with this model.
In addition, the Brocade VDX series supports multitudinous connectivity and enables bridging of existing networks such as FC-SAN.
