A Brocade-based network infrastructure has been distributed by Avnet Technology Solutions, inside its datacentres in its mission to provide self-service Cloud computing resources to Australian resellers.

The infrastructure is being constructed on Brocade s VDX switches and VCS Fabric technology, backed up by an Ethernet fabric which, as a single large domain, would offer 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) server access ports operating at wire speed with low port-to-port latency; self-configuration and self-management capabilities; support for the VXLAN and NVGRE software-defined networking (SDN) protocols.

The fully automating the two datacentres would permit resellers to generate revenue streams based on virtualised technology by self-provisioning virtual machine capabilities.

Hence, Avnet partners would be able to lower the cost of offering Cloud solutions, and accordingly lead to greater return on networking investment.

Adams added, Brocade has really come through for us both in terms of technology and support.Its SDN roadmap is very strong, which gives us a great deal of confidence about supporting both VMware and Microsoft virtualisation stacks across the same infrastructure, and being able to leverage SDN service-chaining for network security.
