Network specialist Brocade today announced the launch of a collaborative programme with solid-state storage vendors that have adopted the fibre channel protocol.

The Solid State Ready programme provides solid state storage system testing in an attempt to optimise interoperability and performance across multiple fabrics, servers and host bus adapters in Brocade SAN fabric environments.

Brocade said it expects solid state storage system vendors that are currently shipping systems with fibre-channel connectivity, to sign up for the programme. Such vendors include Dell, EMC, HDS, HP, IBM, NetApp, Nimbus Data, Pure Storage, Tegile Systems and Violin Memory.

"Brocade dominates the storage area networking market in the Middle East and these latest innovations from our company will no doubt drive the future of fibre channel and lead to greater regional adoption," said Yarob Sakhnini, regional director, Middle East, Mediterranean and Africa (MEMA) at Brocade.
