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™ 6730 Data Center Switch is a high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fixed port switch with LAN and native Fibre Channel 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. With a rich set of Layer 2 features, the Brocade VDX 6730 is an ideal platform for traditional Top-of-Rack (ToR) switch deployments. Brocade VCS™ Fabric technology enables organizations to build data center Ethernet fabrics—revolutionizing the design of Layer 2 networks and providing an intelligent foundation for cloud-optimized data centers.

The Brocade VDX 6730 can be easily deployed in VCS fabric mode with an add-on software license. The Brocade VDX 6730 connects to Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks (SANs) in addition to Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI, and NAS storage, providing unified Ethernet storage connectivity options. It is available in two models—the 2U Brocade VDX 6730-76 with 60 10 GbE LAN ports and 16 8 Gbps native Fibre Channel ports, and the 1U Brocade VDX 6730-32 with 24 10 GbE LAN ports and eight 8 Gbps native Fibre Channel ports.
