Direct-To-Home (DTH) satellite broadcaster Videocon d2h has selected Brocade Ethernet fabric solutions to revamp its data center networks.
Videocon d2h, a unit of Videocon Industries, deployed Brocade VCS Fabric Technology running on Brocade VDX switches within its new and existing data centers in order to support continued business growth.
Brocade VDX 6720 switches were initially deployed at Videocon D2h’s new data center, which was specifically designed to support virtualization, with the deployment at the company’s two other facilities following in a second phase.
Brocade VDX 6720 switches feature Brocade VCS Fabric technology, which enables Videocon to ‘flatten’ its data center networks by providing Virtual Machine (VM) mobility without network reconfiguration, and manage the entire fabric more efficiently.
Samir Dhaga, vice president, Videocon d2h, said,“With the 1 Gbps network quickly running out of steam, we had to rapidly embrace newer technologies. We therefore embarked on a program to expand capacity by building a third data center and upgrading our existing infrastructure with an emphasis on high-speed internal networks that would support virtualization, availability, and manageability.”
