This Ethernet fabric solution was selected primarily for its reliability, flexibility and virtualisation capabilities. Two years ago Brocade launched its Ethernet fabric switching solutions, which are purpose built to support highly virtualised and cloud optimised data centres. Now, with more than 1,100 customer installations—including more than 150 in the last quarter alone—Brocade and its customers have achieved a major milestone in the adoption of this proven technology designed to meet the unique challenges of the modern data centre.
SunGard Public Sector is now able to use a multi-vendor network that includes Brocade VDX switches running Brocade VCS fabric technology along with a Brocade DCX backbone in its data centre. This data centre provides services to city and county governments, public safety and justice agencies, and non-profit organisations.
