Higher Levels of Scale, Agility and Operational Efficiency through Network Transformation
Lifecycle Automation
Flexibility regarding Data Center Design
High Performance and low Latency

VDX switches enable organizations to evolve their data center networks at their own pace, with full investment protection. As the foundation for several data center architectures, VDX switches support Extreme Networks IP fabrics, Extreme VCS® fabrics, as well as network virtualization, including controller-based network virtualization architectures, such as VMware NSX, and standards-based (BGP-EVPN) controller-less architectures with Extreme BGP-EVPN Network Virtualization for architectural flexibility.

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.

VDX 6940 switches are designed to connect data centers in multiple ways to meet individual design requirements. This flexible design provides investment protection, giving organizations a single switch that can support varying data center requirements.

With 1/10 GbE and 40 GbE options, VDX 6940 switches deliver the high-performance computing needed to keep up with the demands of a virtualized data center, allowing organizations to reduce network congestion, improve application performance, and meet the capacity required by 10 GbE servers. The 40 GbE and 100 GbE uplinks can easily aggregate high-bandwidth traffic and reduce bottlenecks that occur when aggregating multiple 10 GbE or 40 GbE connections, keeping data center networks working at peak performance.
