Brocade is also working with the OpenStack Foundation to develop open-source software that will simplify management of Fibre Channel fabrics in cloud architectures. Next month, Brocade and its OEM partners will be proposing the Fibre Channel SAN Zone Manager blueprint at the OpenStack Summit. Brocade was also involved in the Fibre Channel Volume Manager blueprint proposal that will be included in the new OpenStack Grizzly software, also scheduled for release next month.
"According to ESG's 2013 IT Spending Survey, increasing use of server virtualization technology continues to be a top priority. These highly virtualized and dynamic environments require greater levels of reliability and performance due to the increased impact that system failures can have on both revenue and productivity," said Bob Laliberte, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group.
"However, leveraging the integrated, advanced diagnostic and monitoring capabilities of Brocade Fabric Vision technology will enable organizations to retain control, simplify SAN management and improve availability for these mission-critical environments."
Brocade will be showcasing its fabric vision, its network routers and switches, as well as its strategy for the "On-Demand Data Center" at the Interop Las Vegas IT Expo and Conference, May 6-10.
