Hassan Hamadani, Marketing and Business Development Manager for Emerging Markets at Brocade
Brocade today announced that it is organizing an educational seminar entitled ‘Fabric 101: Essentials of Ethernet Fabric’. The event will take place in Dubai on the 22nd of November 2011, at the Address Hotel in Dubai Marina from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Speaking about the event, Hassan Hamadani, Marketing and Business Development Manager for Emerging Markets at Brocade says, “A truly virtualized data center is the foundation for cloud-based architectures and IT models. Virtualized data centers require agile service delivery vehicles, including the ability to add network capacity with appropriate services on demand, and new levels of operational simplicity in infrastructure deployment, administration, and monitoring. The design of current network architectures have often prevented organizations from meeting the performance, availability, security, and mobility requirements of cloud computing.”
“Ethernet fabrics on the other hand provide higher levels of performance, utilization, availability, and operational simplicity to meet the business needs of virtualized data centers today and into the future. As the global leader in data center fabric innovation and deployment, Brocade has the technical expertise and 15 years of experience and we wish to impart this knowledge to help CIOs, IT managers, networking managers and datacenter architects in the Middle East understand how Ethernet fabric solutions can help increase IT agility and deliver a fast ROI”, says Hamadani.
The seminar will aid attendees in making the most informed decision about deploying an Ethernet fabric-based infrastructure in their company’s data centre. Participants will gain a greater understanding of:
The market and technology factors driving the fabric evolution in the data centre
The inner workings and key components of an Ethernet fabric
The integration of Ethernet fabrics into the traditional Ethernet network
Standards, terminology, and technologies including TRILL, convergence and Spanning tree
