MEDIA ALERT: Brocade Demonstrates Industry-Leading Big Data and SDN Solutions at Supercomputing 2012

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, Nov 12, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD) WHO: Brocade leads the industry with its pioneering solutions for software-defined networking (SDN) and flexible Ethernet fabrics.

Brocade(R) VDX(R) switches and Brocade VCS(R) Fabric technology are the foundation for building large-scale Ethernet fabrics that address the unprecedented challenges of Big Data and Web 2.0 applications. In addition, OpenFlow-enabled Brocade MLXe Core routers pave the way for the improved network analytics and optimization required for SDN.

WHAT: At Supercomputing 2012, Brocade will be conducting a variety of live demonstrations featuring products and solutions for the Big Data market and SDN protocols such as OpenFlow. Demonstrations, both in Brocade's booth and in partner booths, will include: -- In Brocade's booth (#1101), demonstrations include a pre-validated, highly scalable Big Data solution with an Apache(TM) Hadoop(R) cluster on Brocade VCS Fabric technology, delivering maximum "no touch" scalability and high resiliency. In addition, Brocade will be conducting live SDN demonstrations on OpenFlow and OpenStack, such as live 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) WAN traffic managed exclusively using OpenFlow on Brocade MLXe 100 GbE routers.

-- IBM (Booth #1018) is demonstrating a Hadoop cluster with IBM InfoSphere BigInsights and Brocade VDX switches, with a live 10 GbE connection to the Brocade booth.

-- NASA (Booth #831) is using Brocade MLXe routers to conduct real-time large file transfers over the local area to the SC12 booth for the Laboratory for Advanced Computing at the University of Chicago (LAC)/International Center for Advanced Internet Research at Northwestern University (iCAIR)/Open Cloud Consortium (OCC) (Booth #501), and wide area to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, across 100 Gbps local and wide area networks.

-- WARP Mechanics (Booth #1111) is running a Big Data solution using a Hyve WARP Storage Array and the Brocade VDX 8770 Switch, with a 40 GbE connection to the Brocade booth.

-- Guest speaking presentations at the booth of Internet2 (#1042): -- Tuesday, Nov. 13, 11:15 - 11:45 a.m. - David Meyer, CTO, Brocade Service Provider group: "How Brocade's partnership with Internet2 is leading to the development of their WAN solution over OpenFlow" -- Wednesday, Nov. 14, 12:45 - 1:15 p.m. - Casey Miles, Brocade senior marketing manager: "How Brocade gear enables Big Data Science Collaboration" -- Guest speaking presentations for InCNTRE in the Indiana University booth (#1343): -- Monday, Nov. 12, 7:15 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 13, 1:30 p.m., and Wednesday, Nov. 14, 1:30 p.m. - Jerry Lei, Brocade solutions architect: "Software-Defined Networking - Industry Involvement; New Frontiers for Software-Defined Networking: Hybrid Mode" WHERE: Brocade Booth #1101 at Supercomputing 2012 Salt Palace Convention Center Salt Lake City, UT WHEN: November 12 - 16, 2012 Follow the conversation at #SC12 and @BRCDcomm.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.

SDN can be the "GPS" Data Center Networks Need

Almost 30 years ago, I came to the USA to attend college, and in my early years as a student I spent every winter, spring and summer break traveling to different parts of this beautiful country.

How Fiber Mountain Future-Proofs Your Data Center

By now you most likely noticed that one of the topics I focus on continually is the problem data centers face today in meeting bandwidth needs. Until now, data centers were forced to purchase fire-breathing, million-dollar core switches to handle the growing volume of traffic, a solution that is both expensive and inefficient.
