VDX 6720
Simplies and automates network
architectures and enables elastic
cloud networking with Brocade VCS
Fabric technology
Manages an entire VCS fabric as a single
switch with Brocade VCS Logical Chassis
Delivers high performance and ultra-low
latency through wire-speed ports with
600-nanosecond port-to-port latency and
automated hardware-based Inter-Switch
Link (ISL) trunking
Provides efciently load-balanced
multipathing at Layers 1, 2, and 3,
and multiple Layer 3 gateways
Simplies virtualized server management
by providing Virtual Machine (VM) mobility
with dynamic server prole conguration
and migration
Provides storage connectivity for Fibre
Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI,
and NAS
Revolutionizing the Way Data
Center Networks Are Built
Seeking better ways to build clouds and
virtualized data centers, today’s IT
organizations are turning to high-
performance networking solutions that
increase exibility through leading-edge
technologies. The Brocade
Switch is a high-performance 10 Gigabit
Ethernet (GbE) xed conguration switch
with LAN ports that supports the most
demanding business applications. It is
specically designed to improve network
utilization, maximize application availability,
increase scalability, and dramatically
simplify network architecture in virtualized
data centers. The Brocade VDX 6720 with
Brocade VCS
Fabric technology is an ideal
platform for a variety of Top-of-Rack (ToR)
fabric deployments (see Figure 1).
The Brocade VDX 6720 is available in two
models—the 2U Brocade VDX 6720-60 with
60 10 GbE LAN ports, and the 1U Brocade
VDX 6720-24 with 24 10 GbE LAN ports.
Both models deliver high performance for
intra-rack trafc in virtualized environments,
provide ultra-low latency of 600
nanoseconds for the same ASIC on the
switch, and offer low power consumption,
making the Brocade VDX 6720 ideal for
demanding data center environments. This
helps organizations design a network with
no oversubscription for deterministic
network performance and improved
application response times. In addition,
the Brocade VDX 6720 provides storage
connectivity for Fibre Channel over Ethernet
(FCoE), iSCSI, and NAS.
Brocade VCS Fabric technology is an
innovative technology that enables
organizations to build high-performance,
cloud-optimized data centers while
preserving existing network designs and
cabling, and gaining active-active server
connections. For scale-out fabric
architectures, Brocade VCS Fabric
