Higher Levels of Scale, Agility and Operational Efficiency through Network Transformation
Lifecycle Automation
Extreme Management Center
High Performance and low Latency

As the foundation for several data center architectures, VDX switches support Extreme IP fabrics, Extreme VCS®fabrics, as well as network virtualization. For organizations seeking automated provisioning capabilities to improve IT agilit y, VDX switches, together with Extreme VCS Fabric technology, accelerate time to value through automated provisioning of network devices and network virtualization.

The Workflow Composer platform automates the entire infrastructure lifecycle—from provisioning and validation to troubleshooting and remediation. It also integrates across IT domains for end-to-end event-driven workflow automation.

The switch can be managed by Extreme Management Center (XMC) for insights, visibility, and control. XMC includes a suite of applications, empowering administrators to deliver a superior quality experience to end users through a single pane of glass and a common set of tools to provision, manage and troubleshoot the network.

With 1/ 10 GbE connections, VDX 6740 switch delivers the high-performance computing needed to keep up with the demands of a virtualized data center, allowing organizations to reduce network congestion and improve application performance. The 40 GbE uplinks can easily aggregate high-bandwidth traffic and reduce bottlenecks that occur when aggregating multiple 10 GbE connections, keeping data center networks working at peak performance.
