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. 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 with Brocade VCS® Fabric technology is an ideal platform for a variety of Top-of-Rack (ToR) fabric deployments.

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 deliver high performance for intra-rack traffic in virtualized environments, provide ultra-low latency of 600 nanoseconds for the same ASIC on the switch, and offer low power consumption, making the Brocade VDX 6720 ideal for demanding data center environments. This helps organizations design a network with no oversubscription for deterministic network performance and improved application response times. In addition, the Brocade VDX 6720 provides storage connectivity for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI, and NAS.


  • Simplifies and automates network architectures and enables elastic cloud networking with Brocade VCS Fabric technology
  • Manages an entire VCS fabric as a single switch with Brocade VCS Logical Chassis
  • Delivers high 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, and multiple Layer 3 gateways
  • Simplifies virtualized server management by providing Virtual Machine (VM) mobility with dynamic server profile configuration and migration
  • Provides storage connectivity for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI, and NAS
