Brocade Outlines Vision at Tech Day

NEW YORK -- Brocade (Nasdaq: BRCD) will affirm the strength and direction of its core technologies and chart its plans and strategies for helping customers migrate to next-generation data center technologies at an event it will hold today at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York in front of investors, financial and industry analysts, media and customers. The event will be webcast starting at 1:00 p.m. EDT at

The event is the backdrop for Brocade to discuss and detail the company’s current and future technology, product and service plans for its four primary businesses: Fibre Channel-based storage area network (SAN) connectivity, server connectivity, file-based data consolidation and management, and professional services and support.

Brocade will also present its vision and a pragmatic timeline of the evolution to the next-generation data center networks. Brocade will outline an application-centric vision of the data center infrastructure, with intelligent, purpose-built networks that rationally and non disruptively integrate new technologies such as Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE). This discussion will reiterate and extend the vision Brocade introduced with the Data Center Fabric (DCF) architecture and the DCX Backbone platform, and will highlight the advantages over alternative strategies.

“Brocade is an industry leader in developing technologies to drive tomorrow’s data centers and we realize that any migration of global, information-based systems needs to be carefully plotted, tested and evaluated before being put into production,” said Mike Klayko, CEO of Brocade. “We understand our customers’ concerns in this area which is why our Data Center Fabric (DCF) architecture and DCX Backbone platform are designed to enable customers to migrate to newer technologies on their own timetables while continuing to enjoy the benefits of the most innovative, high-performance data center fabric technologies available today.”
