According to Brocade, Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) deliver performance and end-to-end customer networking capabilities, and empower customers considering server virtualization as part of their data centre strategy.
Together, the new products are expected to offer unmatched server-to-storage connectivity and capabilities, supporting features such as fabric quality of service, traffic management and other adaptive networking services that benefit evolving data centers.
Michael Vath, senior vice president and general manager for EMEA at Hitachi Data Systems, said: We have been working with Brocade for several years and realize the importance of these HBAs to enable us to offer more value to our customers to help manage their storage infrastructure. We both understand the need to improve performance of data centers using tools such as server and storage virtualization. These new solutions provide more of an end-to-end solution for our customers to give them greater choice and enhanced performance.
Earlier in October, Hitachi Data Systems has unveiled the next generation midrange storage systems.
