Brocade Boosts JetBlue

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Brocade Communications Systems, Inc. (Brocade) (Nasdaq: BRCD - News), the world-leading provider of Storage Area Network (SAN) solutions, today announced that JetBlue Airways is using Brocade SilkWorm® directors to accelerate access to the key applications that manage its up to 500 flights per day. The Brocade directors' added performance extends to virtually every data system involving passenger services, including reservation, navigation, crew, and maintenance platforms.

The scalable directors also deliver the bandwidth to support the self- styled carrier's next decade of growth. For disaster recovery, additional directors and Brocade multiprotocol routing technology complete the fully redundant architecture between data centers, providing a fault-tolerant infrastructure that supports the company's award-winning operations.

"The Brocade SAN's improved throughput is having a rippling effect that is streamlining our entire operations, from flight scheduling and equipment maintenance to managing our flight crews," said Glen Gambal, JetBlue's Manager of Data Center Operations. "As a result, JetBlue's systems are more efficient and we can better ensure flight security and on-time departures."
