Brocade SMB switch

Device for smaller organisations released

Brocade has announced the DCX-4S Backbone, a smaller, modular version of its multipurpose core network switching platform.

Compared to the 384-port 8Gbit/s DCX, the new Brocade DCX-4S Backbone offers up to 192 ports at up to 8 Gbit/s through four modular blade slots using the same basic technology as the larger model.

The DCX-4S comes with Brocade Fabric OS version 6.2, which includes new "Virtual Fabrics" that allow logical partitioning of a physical SAN into logical fabrics. Fabric OS 6.2 also features security updates such as encryption for backup tapes.

The DCX-4S is aimed at mid-size organisations looking to deploy it as a lower-cost core backbone.
