High Flexibility and Easy to Use
Flash-Ready Performance
Seamless Business Operations
Improve Efficiency

Designed for maximum flexibility, this entry-level switch offers pay-as-you-grow capability to easily and cost-effectively scale from 8 to 24 ports with Ports on Demand (PoD). With its PoD capability, the Brocade G610 provides excellent overall value and the agility needed to enable rapid deployments to meet user demands and support higher growth. In addition, the switch can be easily deployed in just three steps.

The switch meets the high-throughput, low-latency demands of critical applications with flash-ready performance and enables the seamless transition to next-generation NVMe flash arrays, without a disruptive rip and replace.

Brocade Gen 6 and Fabric Vision technology provide a breakthrough hardware and software solution that helps organizations simplify monitoring, maximize network availability, and gain insight into issues to speed resolution and meet critical service-level agreements (SLAs). Administrators can quickly identify abnormal VM behaviors to facilitate troubleshooting and fault isolation, helping to ensure maximum performance and operational stability.

By automating repetitive daily management task with Fabric Automation, IT organizations can significantly improve their efficiency and dramatically decrease the risk of operational mistakes.
