Brocade VDX 6740 / VDX 6740T - Converged switch for virtualized data center environment

High Performance, law latency converged switch Brocade VDX 6740/VDX 6740T

April 8, 2014

Data centers continue to evolve, creating a need for an infrastructure that can support growth in Virtual Machines (VMs), distributed applications, and data, as well as the transition to cloud-based computing-without compromising performance.

To support the new direction of IT service delivery, data center operators need networks that are high performance, operationally efficient, automated, and elastic. The ideal network will be easy to manage and scale to meet demand as well as adapt to future requirements.

Fujitsu has released the newest converged switch Brocade VDX 6740 enabling the integration between SAN and LAN.

Brocade VDX 6740 / VDX 6740T Features

The Brocade VDX 6740 and 6740T are Ethernet fabric Top of Rack (ToR) switches featuring 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports with 40 GbE uplinks. Together with Brocade VCS Fabric technology, these switches deliver the high performance and low latency needed to support demanding virtualized data center environments.

Each product has different 1/10GbE interface - Brocade VDX 6740 has SFP + port, Brocade VDX 6740T has 10GBASE-T port. Users can select from the two models depending on their own connectivity.

Customers can purchase the number of ports that they currently need and seamlessly scale up later by simply applying a software license.

Customers also can manage an entire Brocade VCS fabric as a virtual single switch with Brocade VCS Logical Chassis.

Brocade VDX 6740 and 6740T Switches provide the advanced feature set that data centers require and deliver the high performance and low latency virtualized environments demand. Together with Brocade VCS Fabric technology, these switches can simplify network design and operations for a more automated and efficient network, offer the flexibility needed to easily scale networks, deliver the intelligence to more effectively manage Virtual Machine (VM) mobility and rack density, as well as provide a cloud-ready infrastructure.
