However, traditional data centers typically use inflexible, three-tier network designs that cannot efficiently manage east-west traffic or deliver the bandwidth needed to support virtualization and new services delivery. To meet these challenges, data center operators need high-performance networks that are easy to manage, can scale out on demand, and can adapt to future application requirements and network architecture approaches. Brocade® VCS® fabrics running on the Brocade VDX® 8770 Switch allow organizations to create data center networks that just work. Together, these technologies provide unmatched automation, efficiency, and elasticity in support of the most demanding workloads— including big data, rich media, and missioncritical applications—especially in highly dynamic cloud environments.

Ethernet Fabric Architecture Edge Aggregation Core Core Classic Hierarchical Ethernet Architecture Access Scalability Servers with 10 Gbps Connections Servers with 10 Gbps Connections Figure 1. Compared to classic Ethernet architectures, Ethernet fabrics—such as Brocade VCS fabrics— allow all paths to be active and provide greater scalability while reducing management complexity. SCALE-OUT PERFORMANCE The Brocade VDX 8770 Switch is designed to scale out Brocade VCS fabrics and support complex environments with dense virtualization and dynamic traffic patterns— where more automation is required for operational scalability. Available in four-slot and eight-slot versions, the Brocade VDX 8770 provides a highly scalable, low-latency 100/40/10/1 GbE modular switch. UNMATCHED SIMPLICITY AND AUTOMATION Brocade VCS Fabric technology helps streamline network operations and speed deployment with embedded features that enable automatic configuration and management. These features include: •Brocade VCS Logical Chassis: Brocade VCS Logical Chassis enables organizations to manage an entire VCS fabric as a single switch, upgrade software across the fabric with one command, and centralize monitoring and troubleshooting to enhance the overall availability and reliability of the network. Fabric-level REST APIs allow higher-level management frameworks to provide efficient orchestration of VCS fabrics within a cloud context. The single point of management eliminates the 2 need to manually configure and manage each switch, simplifying management, lowering operational costs, and reducing configuration errors with the ability to push software upgrades across the fabric with a single command, accelerating deployment. VCS Logical Chassis also provides a single view of the fabric for easy monitoring and troubleshooting, minimizing the time to repair network issues. For more information about VCS Logical Chassis, read the white paper An Overview of Brocade VCS Logical Chassis. •Self-forming and self-healing fabric: Configuration is simplified with selfforming fabrics. Configuration and device information is known by all switches, allowing switches to be added or removed, and physical or virtual servers to be relocated—without the fabric requiring manual reconfiguration. In addition, fabrics are self-healing, which increases network resilience. The fabric redirects traffic if a link fails, helping to ensure uninterrupted traffic flow and prevent data loss. •Zero-touch provisioning and zerotouch scale-out: Zero-touch provisioning enables simple, rapid deployment. Provided natively in Brocade VDX switches through VCS Fabric technology, this feature enables installation, automatic software download, and configuration without user intervention. Brocade VDX switches are preconfigured so that newly deployed switches require only power and a network connection to become part of the fabric. RBridge-ID, VCS-ID, and other VCS fabric parameters are automatically assigned. In addition, Inter-Switch Links (ISLs) automatically form between all new and existing switches in the fabric. By eliminating manual processes, this installation method greatly simplifies scale-out architecture. Zero-touch provisioning facilitates zero-touch scale-out. With automatic configuration of VCS fabric parameters, self-forming trunks, and logical chassis, network engineers can add, move, and remove network Brocade VDX switches without having to add or delete network configurations. This helps organizations contain costs while increasing reliability and speed when deploying clouds and data centers. •A reliable foundation for softwaredefined networks: The Brocade VDX 8770 is hardware-enabled with the flexibility to support emerging SDN protocols. VCS Logical Chassis technology and northbound APIs with fabric- and node-level orchestration capabilities provide operationally scalable management and integration with data center orchestration frameworks such as OpenStack. To learn more, read Brocade VCS Fabrics: The Foundation for Software-Defined Networks. MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY Brocade VCS Fabric technology provides the foundation for a flexible and responsive network infrastructure while delivering maximum efficiency. Traditional data centers use a rigid, three-tier tree topology in which traffic travels north to south. This compromises performance, increases latency, and creates bottlenecks. The shift to server virtualization and distributed applications has created a need for higher throughput and lower latency network designs. The Brocade VCS fabric flattens today’s networks into a flexible mesh topology optimized for eastwest traffic and greater efficiency. Deliver Multitenant Cloud Data Centers In addition, public and private cloud providers need to deploy and support distributed virtualized workloads quickly, securely, and in a scalable manner on a pertenant basis. Traditional VLANs can be used for this purpose up to a point, but limitations on VLAN ID scale and the complexity of configuring large numbers of VLANs restrict their usefulness in larger data centers. The VCS Virtual Fabric feature of Brocade VCS Fabric technology is designed to address the scalability restrictions of traditional VLANs used for multitenant segmentation. It provides native secure multitenant support for both physical and virtual application deployments within and across VCS fabrics. Managed centrally through Brocade VCS Logical Chassis, the VCS Virtual Fabric feature simplifies and accelerates application deployment, and ensures policy consistency for each tenant regardless of how application components are distributed across the data center. VXLAN and VRF Lite are other options for network segmentation. To learn more, read Multi-Tenancy Options in Brocade VCS Fabrics. Multiple Load-Balanced Paths at Layers 1–3 Brocade VCS Fabric technology enables highly elastic Layer 2 and Layer 3 domains with extremely efficient load balancing and multiple active Layer 3 gateways, in addition to Layer 2 Equal Cost Multi-Path (ECMP) and Brocade ISL Trunking. In the event of a failure, traffic is automatically routed to the closest path, providing higher resilience and greater application uptime. Multilayer multipathing helps improve network utilization, reduce latency, and increase overall network performance. Read the white paper Setting a New Standard for Network Efficiency with VCS Fabric Multilayer Multipathing Capabilities to learn more. Optimized for Virtualization Brocade VCS Fabric technology offers unique features to support virtualized server and storage environments, including: •Brocade VM-Aware Network Automation: Brocade VM-Aware Network Automation provides secure connectivity and full visibility to virtualized server resources through dynamic learning and activation of port profiles. By communicating directly with VMware vCenter, it eliminates manual configuration of port profiles and supports VM mobility across VCS fabrics within the data center. •Automatic Migration of Port Profiles: During a VM migration, network switch ports must be dynamically configured to ensure that the VM traffic experiences consistent policies and configurations. The Brocade Automatic Migration of Port Profiles (AMPP) feature enables a seamless migration, since the VCS fabric is aware of port profiles and automatically tracks them as they move. Implemented in a hypervisor-agnostic manner, port profiles and MAC address mapping are created on any switch in the fabric. This mapping provides the logical flow for traffic from the source port to the destination port. As a VM migrates, the destination port in the fabric learns of the MAC address move and automatically activates the port profile configuration within a single fabric or across separate fabrics. ELASTICITY, SCALABILITY, AND FLEXIBILITY FOR VCS FABRICS Brocade VCS fabrics provide considerable elasticity compared to both traditional Ethernet networks and competitive Ethernet fabric solutions. Organizations can start with small VCS fabrics and scale out the fabric as their needs dictate, adding or removing nodes easily and non-disruptively. Brocade VCS fabrics easily scale out to optimize the performance of virtualized and clustered applications of all types, including big data, rich media, and mission-critical enterprise applications. In addition, the VCS fabric architecture is designed for flexible policy and services management of physical and logical networks together.
