DUBAI, UAE: Brocade, the leader in fabric-based data center architectures, announced significant advancements to the Brocade CloudPlex architecture with new Brocade Virtual Compute Blocks.
These bundled solutions consist of integrated, tested and validated multivendor server, virtualization, networking and storage resources. Demonstrating substantial partner traction, the new solutions are available today, delivered and supported in collaboration with a wide range of alliance partners, including Dell, EMC, Fujitsu, Hitachi Data Systems and VMware.
This open approach is an underlying tenet of the Brocade CloudPlex architecture announced in May, 2011. The open, extensible framework is designed to help customers build the next generation of distributed and virtualized data centers in a simple, evolutionary way that preserves their ability to dictate all aspects of the migration. It is the foundation for integrated compute blocks and it supports existing multivendor infrastructure to unify customers’ assets into a single compute and storage domain.
