Brocade VDX 6940-36Q and 6940-144S

    

 

The ever changing data center is driving requirements for infrastructure that must support robust growth of Virtual Machines (VMs), distributed applications, and Big Data, as well as the transition to cloud-based computing—without compromising performance. The Brocade VDX 69XX switches and the Brocade VDX family deliver the performance, flexibility, hyper-scale, and efficiency essential to data centers, including hybrid clouds and mission critical environments.

 

As data centers virtualize more of their  servers and VM density per server increases, organizations will require  higher bandwidth connectivity to support the explosion of data and application processing.  With 1/10 GbE and 40 GbE options, Brocade VDX 6940 Switches deliver the high-performance computing eeded to keep up with the demands of a virtualized data center, allowing organizations to reduce network congestion, improve application performance, and meet the capacity required by 10 GbE servers.

 

The 40 GbE and 100 GbE uplinks can easily aggregate high-bandwidth traffic and reduce bottlenecks that occur when aggregating multiple 10 GbE or 40 GbE connections, keeping data center networks working at peak performance. In a Brocade VCS fabric, Brocade VDX 6940 Switches also help maximize network utilization with hardware-based Brocade ISL Trunking. Organizations can create a 120 GbE Brocade ISL trunk by utilizing three 40 GbE ports or 12 10 GbE ports between Brocade VDX 6940 Switches. The Brocade ISL trunk is automatically formed between two Brocade VDX switches when they are linked together, allowing traffic to be equally distributed among all ports. This increases link efficiency and limits traffic disruptions, especially during high-traffic times. Also, 40 GbE and 10 GbE trunking is supported between Brocade VDX 6940, 6740, and 8770 Switches.   

 

Brocade VDX 6940 Switches offer a  unique balance between two conflicting attributes—buffer and latency. Niche products with very high buffer often suffer from high latency, and products with ultra-low latency are not a good fit for data centers with bursty traffic. Brocade VDX 6940 Switches, with a purpose-built data center chip, excel in optimizing buffer and latency to deliver better application performance. These switches deliver 800 ns any-port-to-any-port latency. In addition, they offer an industry-leading 24 MB deep buffer. This provides the buffering capacity to handle increases in traffic, especially during peak times when ports are congested, allowing traffic to be distributed across the ports.
