Seeking better ways to build clouds and virtualized data centers, today’s IT organizations are turning to highperformance networking solutions that increase flexibility through leading-edge technologies. Brocade® VDX™ Data Center Switches are specifically designed to improve network utilization, maximize application availability, increase scalability, and dramatically simplify network architecture in virtualized data centers. Brocade VDX Data Center Switches with Brocade VCS™ fabric technology enable organizations to build data center Ethernet fabrics—revolutionizing the design of Layer 2 networks and providing an intelligent foundation for cloud computing.

Whether organizations want to enhance their classic hierarchical network architectures or deploy flatter scale-out fabrics for virtualized data centers, the Brocade VDX family delivers the innovative technology to enhance and simplify their networks. Without disrupting classic Ethernet architectures, Brocade VCS technology enables organizations to preserve existing network designs and cabling, and to gain active-active server connections without employing Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). For scale-out fabric architectures, Brocade VCS technology allows organizations to flatten network designs, provide Virtual Machine (VM) mobility without network reconfiguration, and manage the entire fabric more efficiently.


  • Simplifies network architectures and enables cloud computing by delivering Brocade VCS technology
  • Enables cost-effective 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connectivity with full switching capability
  • Maximizes performance through wire-speed ports with 600 nanosecond port-to-port latency and hardware-based Inter-Switch Link (ISL) Trunking
  • Provides multi-homed active-active server connections for Ethernet networks
  • Creates scale-out Ethernet fabrics for virtualized data centers
  • Simplifies management by maintaining network policies as Virtual Machines (VMs) move throughout the data center with Automatic Migration of Port Profiles (AMPP)
  • Provides dynamic configuration and secure communication to VMware vCenter via Brocade VM-aware network automation
