Brocade Communications Brocade DCX Backbone
Mfg Part #: BR-DCX-2164
Brocade DCX Backbones are highly robust network switching platforms that combine breakthrough performance, scalability, and energy efficiency with long-term investment protection. Supporting open systems and System z environments, Brocade DCX Backbones are designed to address the data growth and application demands of evolving enterprise data centers; enable server, SAN, and data center consolidation; and reduce infrastructure and administrative costs.
Industry-leading performance, scalability, and energy efficiency
Brocade DCX Backbones are also ten times more energy efficient than competitive offerings. In addition to helping organizations reduce energy costs and achieve "green" initiatives, Brocade DCX Backbones free up limited power and cooling resources in the data center for more servers and storage arrays.
Fabric-based data encryption and protection
Brocade DCX Backbones deliver high-speed, highly secure fabric-based encryption of data on disk or tape with integrated support for leading key management solutions. This enables organizations to further prevent exposure of sensitive information, fulfill compliance requirements, and reduce administrative overhead and complexity. Through integration with third-party applications, Brocade DCX Backbones also help enterprises to continuously protect data without impacting server resources, recover instantly to any point in time, and scale third-party applications across heterogeneous environments.
Advanced capabilities to optimize and extend ROI
Brocade DCX Backbones offer advanced capabilities to help maximize investment return today and tomorrow. Native B- and M-series connectivity enables organizations to leverage current Brocade investments without risk, disruption, or management complexity. Adaptive networking helps optimize fabric behavior and ensure ample bandwidth for critical apps. Virtual Fabrics capabilities allow the logical partitioning of a physical SAN into logical fabrics and isolation by application, group, customer, or traffic type.
Brocade optical transceiver modules
Brocade DCX Backbones require Brocade optical transceiver modules, which are available in multiple models to satisfy a wide range of speed and distance requirements. These Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) modules are optimized for Brocade products to maximize performance, reduce power consumption, and help ensure the highest availability of mission-critical applications.
