Brocade G620 Switch

Scale fast, accelerate data access, achieve operational efficiency

Currently Viewing:

Take advantage of lightning-fast flash storage networking technology and adapt quickly to dynamic business demands with the Brocade G620 Switch. This powerful Gen 6 Fibre Channel switch shatters application performance barriers and simplifies scale-out network architectures—in an enviably small footprint. And with built-in instrumentation, you gain greater insight and control to reduce cost, management complexity, and risk.

Breakthrough performance: Get the performance you need to support critical business applications and the most from your investment in solid state storage technology.

Increased scalability: Reduce operating costs and management complexity by simplifying scale-out architectures—all in a 1U form factor.

Operational stability: Reduce risk with the industry’s first built-in metrics. Achieve greater control and operational insights to quickly identify issues and easily meet or crush SLAs.


Handle demanding applications easily

  • Seamlessly transition to next-generation NVMe flash arrays
  • Smash application performance barriers with up to 100 million IOPS and accommodate flash storage workloads
  • Reduce latency in high-transaction applications by up to 10X compared to other offerings


Simplify scalability and management

  • Deliver simplified scalability with the industry’s highest port density storage networking switch
  • Simplify end-to-end management of large scale environments by automating monitoring and diagnostics 
  • Increase VM density with greater device support and deep visibility into virtualized workloads
  • “Pay as you grow” scalability from 24 to 64 ports for on-demand flexibility


Achieve control and insight

  • Detect degraded storage performance with built-in device latency and IOPS monitoring
  • Understand storage I/O workloads and behaviors to ensure consistent and predictable performance
  • Increase resilience though automatic detection and recovery from network and device-level errors
  • Ensure predictable performance with pre-deployment validation and benchmarking
  • VM Insight enables Virtual Machine (VM) visibility in a storage fabric to monitor and optimize VM performance and identify VM anomalies
