E-mail Print PDF

Brocade presents the G610-- an entry-level hardwired storage switch designed for 24/7 connectivity to all-flash datacentres running on Brocade Gen 6 Fibre Channel connectivity.

Brocade G610As an entry-level switch the G610 is ideal for a number of environments, including small shared storage fabrics and network-edge datacentre deployments. It scales from 8 to up to 24 ports per switch, and Brocade promises installation is easy thanks to a simplified point-and-click user interface.

“For all its benefits, flash storage is now one of the foundations for enterprise digital transformation initiatives," the company says. "With the new G610 switch, we have lowered the entry point to our reputed Brocade Gen 6 Fibre Channel technology without any technical compromises, enabling customers to optimise their storage performance."

Also announced by the company is VM Insight-- a means for enterprises to obtain greater visibility into VM-level application performance. Found in all Brocade Gen 6 products with Fabric Vision, the technology uses integrated sensors to monitor VM statistics and quickly identify abnormal VM behaviours.

The Brocade G610 switch is shipping now. The Dell EMC Connectrix Fibre Channel SAN solution pairs with the G610, as do the Emulex Gen 6 Fibre Channel HBAs. Other companies giving their seal of approval to the G610 include  Pure Storage, Nimble, Fujitsu, Broadcom, ADVA Optical Networking, Cavium QLogic, H3C,  Hitachi, Huawei, Lenovo Data Center Group, Kaminario, INFINIDAT, NetApp, Tegile, Vexata and VMware.
