Brocade VDX 6710 Data Center Switch

The Brocade VDX 6710 Switch is a high-performance 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fixed configuration switch that provides a reliable, scalable, and flexible foundation for supporting the most demanding business applications. It offers a cost-effective solution for connecting 1 GbE servers to an Ethernet fabric using Brocade VCS Fabric technology.

Revolutionizing the Way Data Center Networks Are Built
The Brocade VDX 6710 Switch is specifically designed to improve network utilization, maximize application availability, increase scalability, and dramatically simplify network architecture in virtualized data centers. Brocade VDX switches feature Brocade VCS Fabric technology, an innovative approach to networking that enables organizations to build high-performance, cloud-optimized data centers while preserving existing network designs and cabling, and gaining active-active server connections. For scale-out fabric architectures, Brocade VCS Fabric technology allows organizations to flatten network designs, provide Virtual Machine (VM) mobility without network reconfiguration, and manage the entire fabric more efficiently.

Additional Brocade VDX 6710 highlights include:

  • Performance and low latency: Maximizes performance with 1 GbE ports and ultra-low latency through wire-speed ports with 600 nanosecond port-to-port latency and automated hardware-based Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking
  • Simplified architecture: Simplifies network architectures and enables cloud computing with Brocade VCS Fabric technology
  • Easy configuration: Enables organizations to manage an entire VCS fabric as a single switch with Brocade VCS Logical Chassis
  • Maximizes network utilization: Allows efficient, load-balanced multipathing at Layers 1, 2, and 3, with multiple Layer 3 gateways
  • Optimizes virtualization: Offers the automation needed to support highly virtualized server and storage environments while enabling the transition to cloud computing

Compared to classic Ethernet architectures, Brocade VCS Fabric technology allows all paths to be active and provides greater scalability — while reducing management complexity.
