The Brocade VDX switch family, running VCS Fabric technology, serves as the foundation for the new gateway. This solution can be deployed as a single switch or as a fabric of switches.

“Today’s introduction of the Brocade VCS Gateway for VMware NSX advances the capabilities of our VCS Fabric technology by unifying physical and virtualized resources within the data center,” said Jason Nolet, vice president, Data Center Networking, at Brocade.
