The Brocade VDX6720-40 SAN Switch is a high-performance, ultra-low latency wire-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fixed configuration switch. The Brocade VDX 6720 with Brocade VCS Fabric technology is an ideal platform for a variety of Top-of-Rack (ToR) fabric deployments.
Revolutionizing the Way Data Center Networks Are Built
The Brocade VDX 6720 Switch is a high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fixed configuration switch with LAN ports that supports the most demanding business applications. It is specifically designed to improve network utilization, maximize application availability, increase scalability, and dramatically simplify network architecture in virtualized data centers.
The Brocade VDX 6720 is available in two models—the 2U Brocade VDX 6720-60 with 60 10 GbE LAN ports, and the 1U Brocade VDX 6720-24 with 24 10 GbE LAN ports. Both models provide Ethernet storage connectivity for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI, and NAS.
Brocade VDX switches deliver Brocade VCS Fabric technology, an innovative approach to networking that enables organizations to build high-performance, cloud-optimized data centers while preserving existing network designs and cabling, and gaining active-active server connections. For scale-out fabric architectures, Brocade VCS Fabric technology allows organizations to flatten network designs, provide Virtual Machine (VM) mobility without network reconfiguration, and manage the entire fabric more efficiently.
Additional highlights include:
- Offers high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) data center LAN ports in a fixed configuration switch
- Provides industry-leading performance and ultra-low latency through wire-speed ports with 600 nanosecond port-to-port latency and automated hardware-based Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking
- Provides efficiently load-balanced multipathing at Layers 1, 2, and 3, with multiple Layer 3 gateways
- Provides Ethernet storage connectivity for FCoE, iSCSI, and NAS
- Simplifies virtualization server management by providing Virtual Machine (VM) mobility with dynamic server profile configuration
The Brocade VDX 6720 with VCS Fabric technology provides the following unique features for building access-layer fabrics optimized for the needs of modern workloads:
Elastic, Self-Healing Fabrics
Brocade VCS fabrics are self-forming and self-healing, providing a highly resilient, operationally scalable foundation for very large or dynamic cloud deployments. Multi-node fabrics can be managed as a single logical element, and fabrics can be deployed and easily re-deployed in a variety of configurations optimized to the needs of particular workloads.
Efficient multipathing across Layers 1-3
Brocade VCS Fabric technology delivers efficiently load-balanced multipathing at Layers 1-3, with multiple Layer 3 gateways. The result is very elastic Layer 2 and Layer 3 domains with more effective link utilization and, ultimately, a more flexible, agile network that helps organizations rapidly adapt to changing business conditions.
Lowest Power Consumption
The Brocade VDX 6720 features superior size and the industry’s lowest power consumption—imperative in today’s data centers.
Scale-Out Solution for Virtualized Data Centers
VCS fabrics enable dynamic, large-scale server virtualization deployments in private and public clouds with proven zero-touch VM discovery, network configuration, and VM mobility.
The Brocade VDX 6720 delivers high performance for intra-rack traffic in virtualized environments, providing ultra-low latency of 600 nanoseconds for the same ASIC on the switch. This helps organizations design a network with no oversubscription for deterministic network performance and improved application response times, making the Brocade VDX 6720 ideal for performance-demanding environments.
Server Virtualization Automation Support
Brocade VCS Fabric technology offers unique features to support virtualized server environments. Brocade VM-aware network automation provides secure connectivity and full visibility to virtualized server resources with dynamic learning and activation of port profiles. By communicating directly with VMware vCenter, it eliminates manual configuration of port profiles and supports VM mobility across VCS fabrics within a data center.
During a VM migration, network switch ports must be dynamically configured to ensure that the VM traffic experiences consistent policies and configurations. The Brocade Automatic Migration of Port Profiles (AMPP) feature enables a seamless migration. Port profiles and MAC address mapping are created on any switch in the fabric. This mapping provides the logical flow for traffic from the source port to the destination port. As a VM migrates, the destination port in the fabric learns of the MAC move and automatically activates the port profile configuration.
In addition to providing protection against VM MAC spoofing, AMPP and VM-aware network automation enable organizations to fully align virtual server and network infrastructure resources, and realize the full benefits of server virtualization.
Brocade Fabric Watch is an innovative switch health monitoring feature available on the Brocade VDX 6720. Fabric Watch monitors the health of certain switch components and, based on the threshold set, declares each component as marginal or down.
ETHERNET STORAGE CONNECTIVITY
The Brocade VDX 6720 connects to FCoE, iSCSI, and NAS storage. The FCoE feature can be turned on with an add-on software license.
