Brocade acts on demand
Network specialist demonstrates innovations for On-demand Data Centre
Brocade, a leader in data centre networking, is demonstrating many of the recently announced innovations that go into creating the On-demand Data Centre at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK.
“A recent global survey we conducted indicates that current data centre networks are unable to handle cloud computing and virtualisation demands. This is of particular concern for businesses in the Middle East where cloud related IT investments are expected to increase substantially in the next few years. According to a recent IDC report, emerging markets, such as MENA, will witness the fastest growth in cloud spending anywhere in the world, collectively growing at 44.1% until 2016. However, many organisations risk long term failure unless they resolve the weaknesses inherent in their current network infrastructures,” says Sufian Dweik, Regional Director MEMA at Brocade Communications.
“At Gitex, we will educate show attendees about our recently unveiled On-Demand Data Center strategy which combines the best of physical and virtual networking elements to create a future-proof data center environment that helps organisations rapidly react to market changes and deploy new services and applications in the most efficient manner possible.”
According to Brocade, the On-Demand Data Centre strategy represents a logical step on the path towards adoption of solutions and approaches such as virtualisation and Software-defined Networking, which improve the efficiency, utilisation, resilience and manageability of data centre environments.
Company experts are on hand to demonstrate the Brocade HyperEdge Architecture; an evolutionary approach to campus network design, providing agile, application and services-centric campus networks that organizations need today.
HyperEdge Architecture delivers a campus environment that can quickly and easily scale and respond to the demands of increased user mobility, while delivering instant access to services and applications.
