Brocade announces new scale-out solutions and SDN support

FY Teng | Nov. 5, 2014
The Brocade ICX 7750-based distributed chassis solution and Brocade ICX 7450 switch and OpenFlow 1.3 support for emerging campus SDN applications further expand the company's 'Effortless Network' vision.

Networking solutions provider Brocade Communications Systems, Inc. announced today (Wednesday, November 5, 2014) what it refers to as "advancements" to 'The Effortless Network' vision, as enabled by its Brocade HyperEdge Architecture. These include scale-out networking capabilities with the Brocade ICX 7750-based distributed chassis solutions, the launch of the new Brocade ICX  7450 enterprise campus stackable switch, and the availability of OpenFlow 1.3 support for emerging campus Software-Defined Networking (SDN) applications.

"These new enhancements allow customers to transform their edge networks to support mobility, social, and cloud data traffic as they transition to the New IP," said Brocade representatives. (The New IP refers to the next-generation virtualised IP network.)

On hand to comment at the announcement was Brocade Director of Data Center Fabric and Virtualization for Asia Pacific, CK Lam, who said that these announcements were not just part of 'The Effortless Network' strategy but completely in line with what the market needs. "Campus customers require a high-performance network infrastructure that is future-proof, that is simple to provision and manage, and that can scale at the speed of business," he said. "The latest innovations in the Brocade ICX portfolio significantly advance these capabilities and ensure that customers are prepared for the New IP."
