Visibility, Monitoring, Alerting, Diagnostics... Real-time information about your production environment is king! It helps you meet service level objectives. Brocade 7840 IPEX gives you everything you need to monitor IP storage flows between data centers. The third in a series of three EMC World blogs.
Do you have a variety of IP based storage devices (Data Domain, Isilon, DLm, SRDF, RecoverPoint, ECS...) all of which have multiple links with traffic headed to a remote data center? Do the links outnumber the amount of WAN bandwidth (i.e., oversubscribed WAN)? The second in a series of three EMC World blogs discussing two more IPEX use cases: Link Aggregation and Bandwidth Pooling/Balance.
In a Brocade sponsored Guru Session, Moore will be joining EMC CTO John Roese to offer a unique perspective where business meets technology, in this age of disruption. Brocade CMO Christine Heckart will introduce the session.
Move over Godzilla. There is a new sheriff in town.
EMC unleashed “The Beast” this week at EMC World, which is their new aptly named software upgrade for XtremIO 3.X all-flash storage that more than doubles supported all-flash capacity to 40TB, with the ability to cluster eight of these monsters together with consistent and predictable sub-millisecond performance.
Saturday’s Fight of the Century in Las Vegas elevated Floyd Mayweather to global prominence as the world’s best welterweight boxer. 48-0; one shy of Rocky Marciano’s undefeated career record. Mayweather turned in a vintage performance as he outboxed Manny Pacquiao in a brilliant display to win a unanimous decision in one of the biggest fights in boxing history.
Like Saturday’s epic event, EMC made history today on the global Las Vegas stage at EMC World by bringing its heavyweight, high-end storage systems to the EMC VSPEX family, further strengthening its position as the undisputed, world champion of reference architectures sold exclusively through channel partners. Brocade is proud to be in the same corner as EMC for this new VSPEX solution, as the storage networking foundation, connecting EMC VMAX3 100K storage with high-performance servers.
Welcome back to the second installment on Brocade 7840 IPEX. Today’s blog is all about improving performance of IP storage applications between data centers, a cornerstone of IPEX. There is A LOT to this pillar, so, I’ve devoted today’s entire blog to just to this subject. Here is a list of pertinent Brocade technologies implemented in IPEX that enhance native IP storage performance:
Good morning EMC World 2015! Here we are again in Las Vegas pursuing the latest technological advancements for our storage and cloud environments.
This year EMC and Brocade are proud to present something entirely new: IPEX (IPEX = IP Extension) on the Brocade 7840 (EMC Connectrix MP-7840B). You say, Hummm… Why do I need extension for IP? I’m sure you’re thinking, can’t I just handoff my IP storage flows to the network? Of course, I hope the Network Admins meet their SLAs (Service Level Agreements) so I can meet mine! Who out there wants to have SLA responsibility that in turn relies on the network SLA, of which you have no control? Yep, that’s what I thought… No One!
