Brocade, Dell Collaborate to Unveil First 16 Gbps Fibre Channel End-to-End Solution
Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD) today demonstrated continued momentum in next-generation storage area networking (SAN) by announcing it is helping to offer the industry's first complete, end-to-end solution based on the 16 Gbps Fibre Channel (FC) protocol with Dell Compellent -- from servers, to switches and storage -- that doubles bandwidth for business critical applications within highly virtualized data center environments. The end-to-end 16 Gbps FC solution is achieved by new enhancements to Dell Compellent SC8000 storage arrays, including a next-generation 16 Gbps Fibre Channel IO module for the array, along with the new Dell Compellent Storage Center 6.3 software also announced today. In addition, Brocade announced availability of the Brocade M6505 16 Gbps FC embedded SAN I/O module by Dell, which enables Dell PowerEdge M1000e Blade Enclosures to directly connect to the higher bandwidth-capable Compellent storage arrays.
