Brocade has shared how data center and cloud-based services provider NxtGen has transformed its business with Brocade’s new IP networking infrastructure solutions.
The network infrastructure comprises of Brocade VROUTERS and VDX6740T switches. Brocade says these two solutions enable NxtGen to streamline enterprise cloud services fulfillment at its high-density data centers.
The Brocade VDX 6740T switches deployed within NxtGen’s data centers support Brocade VCS Fabric Technology.
This enables multiple switches to form a self-configuring, self-healing, and scalable Ethernet fabric that removes the need for additional network switching layers and delivers low-latency performance, making it ideal for cloud computing operations.
These VCS fabrics are virtual machine-aware and support Automated Migration of Port Profiles (AMPP) within the Hyper-V environment, providing integration with Microsoft’s server virtualization platform.
NxtGen is also leveraging Hyper-V hosts, running on the same industry-standard hardware it uses for customer service delivery, to support virtualized network functions.
Brocade vRouters leverage the Intel Data Plane Development Kit to achieve up to 10 Gpbs of throughput per processor core.
“Brocade’s open, programmable architecture, strong commitment to network functions virtualization, and excellent integration with Microsoft Hyper-V made its New IP networking solution a compelling value proposition for us,” said A.S. Rajgopal, MD and CEO of NxtGen.
According to a report from Cloud Spectator, NxtGen is identified for its strong price/performance credentials compared to major rivals.
NxtGen has raised multiple rounds of funding from Intel Capital, Axon Partners, and the International Finance Corporation (World Bank).
The company has utilized this funding to establish three data centers in India, with plans to open several more in 2016 as it identifies new opportunities in the world’s fastest-growing major economy.
NxtGen has already established offices in Abu Dhabi and Singapore to help drive adoption of its public, private, and hybrid cloud infrastructure solutions that are hosted within its own data centers or managed on premises.
The company recently made waves in the cloud services market with the launch of VCEverywhere, a pay-as-you-use video conferencing service aimed at businesses of all sizes.
