Imdaad, an integrated facilities management (IFM) company, has recently introduced Brocade's Ethernet fabric network switching platform to its data centre.

The IFM provider opted to improve its internal infrastructure by introducing the Brocade ICX 7750 network switch, as well as the Brocade VDX 6740 switch.

Forming the Brocade VCS Ethenet Fabric, the platform is expected to deliver both increased bandwidth and faster turn-around time, as well as introducing a vendor-agnostic system boasting automated features and a chassis-like performance.

Commenting on Brocade's platform, Jamal Lootah, CEO, Imdaad, said: "We wanted to partner with a market leader who can help us take one step ahead to achieve our goals and objectives and are confident of Brocade's state-of-the-art and highly advanced multiple switch solution.

He added: "We are upbeat that the Brocade Ethernet fabric network switching solution will provide the required agility, scalability and automation to our data centre, enabling the management and our employees to increase efficiency and focus more on the company's strategic growth plans." 

The inclusion of Brocade VDX 6740 switches will aid the VCS network in enabling multiple switches to create a self-configuring and self-healing Ethernet fabric. This in turn will limit the need for additional switching layers in the data centre.

Carob Sanmina, regional director, Brocade Middle East, shared: "Imdaad has a strong vision for its company and was ready to upscale its network infrastructure. In its fifth generation, Brocade VCS Fabric technology is the leading fabric in enterprise data centres and a trusted solution for the company.

Software-defined networking (SDN)-enabled and with native automation, VCS Fabric technology provides an ideal foundation for not only Imdaad's future but also for the ‘New IP' approach of open, innovation-focused and software-enabled networking."
