Brocade Advances Fibre Channel Innovation with New Fabric Vision Technology

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. March 27, 2013 – Brocade announced Brocade® Fabric Vision™ technology - SAN (storage area network) hardware and software which is based on Gen 5 Fibre Channel and delivers up to 16 Gbps performance. It also launched a new SAN switch; the Brocade 6520 Switch.

Brocade has started commitment to developer solutions based on Gen 6 Fibre Channel industry standard and working closely with OpenStack industry open standard.



Pricing and Availability

The new Brocade 6520 Switch and new Brocade Network Advisor 12.0 are available now through Brocade OEM partners Fujitsu, HP and NetApp, as well as through Brocade channel partners. These new products will be offered later this year by other OEM partners, including Dell, EMC and HDS. For pricing information, please contact these Brocade partners.

Brocade Fabric Vision technology includes capabilities that are available now through Brocade OEM and channel partners. It also includes future enhancements and new capabilities that will be available through Brocade OEM and channel partners later in 2013 and beyond.

FYI..

SAN (Storage Area Network) is a technology which caters for high-speed network storage.

A SAN switch will connect server to storage devices directly via fibre. The communication protocol is SCSI.

SAN works like DAS (Direct Attached Storage), both operate as block level data storage. SAN can be regarded an extension of DAS for the network.

If a SAN switch and Ethernet switch are connected to form a network, then there will be a mapping layer to cater for communication using various protocol standards such as HyperSCSI, mapping of SCSI over Ethernet

NAS (Network Attached Storage) operates as file level data storage via the network.

SAN and NAS are different in terms of protocol. SAN operates faster than NAS because it operates at a lower level.
