Products of the Year 2011: Hardware for virtualization

We typically think of server virtualization as a technology that helps IT out in the hardware department. It helps with server consolidation, workload mobility and offers several other related benefits. But hardware can also benefit your server virtualization projects. This category recognizes hardware specifically designed to improve virtual server infrastructures.

Brocade VCS

Brocade’s product stands out because it knows where each virtual machine (VM) is and what exactly is attached to the fabric in a virtual infrastructure. These capabilities come in handy when trying to secure a fabric to support only VMs, for example. Another benefit of the product is that it works with VMware vCenter, so it can tell automatically what’s connected, instead of having to learn it over time.
