Fibre Channel Storage Networking: Brocade

Close

Brocade Fabric Vision technology

Brocade Fabric Vision technology provides unprecedented insight and visibility across the storage networking with powerful built-in monitoring, management and diagnostic tools that enable organizations to simplify monitoring, increase availability, and dramatically reduce costs.  Brocade Fabric Vision is an extension of Gen 5 and Gen 6 Fibre Channel.

 

 

Simplify Monitoring

• Deploy more than 15 years of SAN best practices with one click to simplify the deployment of monitoring with pre-defined, threshold-based rules, actions, and policies

• Instantly identify latency and congestion issues in the fabric through increased instrumentation and granularity

• Provide comprehensive visibility into the network health and performance using browser accessible dashboards with deep drill-down capabilities

Increase Availability

• Avoid 50 percent of common network problems with proactive monitoring and advanced diagnostic tools that address problems before they impact operations

• Identify hot spots and automatically mitigate network problems before they impact application performance

• Minimize downtime and accelerate troubleshooting with live monitoring, integrated diagnostics, and point-in time playback

Dramatically Reduce Costs

• Eliminate nearly 50 percent of maintenance costs through automated testing and diagnostic tools that validate the health, reliability, and performance of the network prior to deployment

• Save up to millions of dollars on CapEx costs by eliminating the need for expensive third-party tools through built-in monitoring and diagnostics

• Leverage specialized tools for pretesting and validating IT infrastructure to accelerate deployment, simplify support, and reduce costs
