Brocade Showcases Support for OpenStack at Red Hat Summit 2013

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) - Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD) today announced that it is an official member of the Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network and that it will be exhibiting at this week's Red Hat Summit 2013, the premier open source technology event to showcase the latest in cloud computing, platform, virtualization, middleware, storage and systems management technologies.

At the summit, Brocade will showcase its recently announced Brocade® VCS® fabric plugin that delivers powerful on-demand fabric provisioning and SDN capabilities in OpenStack-based cloud environments. Additionally, Brocade will discuss its leadership on the OpenStack Fibre Channel storage area networking (FC-SAN) initiative and provide demonstrations of its OpenStack solutions, including:

  • Demo: Orchestration of Brocade VCS fabrics using OpenStack
  • Demo: Load balancing as a service with Brocade ADX® solutions using OpenStack

The On-Demand Data Center™ strategy from Brocade represents an evolutionary shift as networks become increasingly virtualized. With an infrastructure that combines both physical and virtual networking elements, orchestration is a key component that enables customers to provision the capacity -- compute, network, storage and services -- required to deliver high-value applications faster and easier compared to legacy data center networks.

Red Hat Summit is June 11 - 14, 2013.
