As organizations consolidate data centers, expand application services, and begin to implement cloud initiatives, large-scale server architectures are becoming a standard part of the data center. As a result, the network must be able to scale efficiently to handle additional connectivity and data traffic when new servers are deployed. Minimizing the network deployment steps and simplifying management can help organizations grow seamlessly while reducing operating costs. The Brocade® VA-40FC helps meet this challenge, providing the first Fibre Channel edge switch optimized for server connectivity in large core-to-edge Storage Area Networks (SANs). By leveraging Brocade Access Gateway technology, the Brocade VA-40FC enables zero-configuration deployment and reduces management of the network edge, increasing scalability and simplifying management for large-scale server architectures. Ease of use, a flexible hardware design, high performance, and maximum port density make the Brocade VA-40FC an efficient solution for meeting the requirements of next-generation virtual data centers.
