Brocade Unveils DCX Backbone

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Brocade(R) (Nasdaq: BRCD), the leading provider of data center networking solutions that help enterprises connect and manage their information, today introduced new Brocade Adaptive Networking services, addressing evolving requirements to dynamically manage virtualization in the data center. These innovative network services are available as features on the new Brocade DCX(TM) Backbone, which was also introduced today.

"As IT organizations deploy greater numbers of virtual servers with networked storage to consolidate resources and improve utilization, they must be able to efficiently adapt to the dynamic management and provisioning needs of the 'virtualized' data center," said Enterprise Strategy Group Analyst Bob Laliberte. "The replacement of static, dedicated connections between physical servers and storage with dynamic connections between virtual resources creates new management requirements and greater potential for congestion. Brocade Adaptive Networking services combined with the Brocade DCX Backbone offer innovative solutions to help simplify and accelerate effective management of virtualized data centers."
