Hear what EMC and Brocade executives have to say about the partnership and our innovative solutions that enable an open, agile, and flexible IT infrastructure.
Consolidate your most critical data center and departmental networks to a single integrated data center fabric, reducing server and storage operating cost up to 50 percent. Leverage the flexibility of multi-protocol support that includes FC, FCoE, and FCIP to match performance, scalability and cost with application requirements.
Create a consolidated, tiered storage architecture (Flash, FC, SATA) which balances performance, availability and cost based on application demands. Use Fully Automated Storage Tiering (FAST) to set policies based on real time and historical trends to automate tiering across leading applications.
Simplify provisioning across multiple servers, SAN and storage devices through one tool and one user interface. Automate end-to-end reporting, in real time, grouping by application or line of business to proactively tune network and storage resources for optimal performance and capacity planning.
Learn how to reduce your physical hardware, support costs, and improve efficiency by centralizing information infrastructure management control for all leading application environments.

Easily deploy VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V for server and application virtualization on Brocade and EMC solutions. Divide physical machines into virtual machines running on the same servers, enhancing your data center consolidation and increasing hardware utilization up to 80 percent. Enable multiple applications to share the same server resources, provisioning hardware quicker.
Enable your network for the virtual data center. Assign fabric bandwidth and resources with QoS priorities to ensure consistent performance regardless of network traffic. Identify points of congestion, while monitoring and reporting on physical resource utilization through VM-aware network management.
Enable your storage for the virtual data center. Simplify virtualized tiered storage provisioning with 80 percent fewer configuration steps. Fully automate data migration to the right storage tier or RAID type at the right time across virtual infrastructure. Proactively monitor and report physical resource utilization across virtual servers, networks and storage using integrated management views.
Leverage application-oriented virtualization technology to gain efficiencies and increase utilization of your networking, server, and storage assets. You'll seamlessly move information throughout the data center while applications remain online.
Encrypt data transparently from within the fabric with extremely high performance, while applications remain online and processing. Leverage RSA to centralize key management and perform online rekeying without application downtime. Deploy encryption as a fabric service with no additional agent or license requirements on servers or arrays.
Protect all of your data remotely, including databases and applications, using a single out of band replication architecture within the data center network. Recover databases and applications to any transaction specific point-in-time, while ensuring write-order consistency.
Enhance your remote data protection solutions with extended distance, asynchronous replication solutions to reduce network bandwidth requirements and with no host performance impact. Leverage up to 10:1 data compression to further reduce cost and improve replication efficiency.
Back up your business applications more quickly--with no disruption to application availability or performance. Learn how to leverage deduplication technology and archive less active data to lower cost, as well as speed recovery from backup devices.
