Brocade has leveraged its 18-year heritage in data center fabrics to transform Ethernet networks in virtualized and cloud data centers. In December 2010, Brocade introduced its VCS Fabric technology, the first true Ethernet fabric solution in the industry, which is purpose-built to support highly virtualized and cloud-optimized data centers and to date, more than 1,400 customers have deployed these solutions.
Brocade VCS Fabric technology provides unmatched automation, enabling customers to deploy network capacity five times more quickly than with legacy network architectures and competitive fabric offerings. This agility is critical to helping IT organizations and cloud providers deploy new applications and services more quickly than ever before. Brocade VCS Fabric technology also delivers twice the network efficiency and utilization of legacy network architectures through its unique combination of multi-pathing and load balancing capabilities at all layers of the fabric.
