Brocade Communications Systems has launched its Fabric Vision Technology, a solution that combines hardware and software that the company claims will help enterprises gain better visibility into their Storage Area Networks (SANs) and simplify deployment and management.
Brocade has appointed Johnson Chiu as channel director for Asia Pacific, a role that would see him spearheading partner enablement strategies and programs designed to grow Brocade IP (Internet Protocol) networking revenues.
Recent research from Brocade indicates that many channel organizations are being impeded in their efforts to move toward cloud-based professional services due to a lack of flexibility and capability by their vendors.
Brocade has named Lily Foo as head for South-East Asia, responsible for charting the company’s overall growth across the region. She will be based in Singapore and report directly to Brocade vice president for Asia Pacific, Charlie Foo.
Brocade has announced support for Microsoft Corp’s recently-released Windows Server 2012 server operating system across all product lines, including its Fiber Channel storage area network (SAN) and Ethernet fabric solutions.
Brocade, so long hidden in the backrooms of the Information Technology (IT) world, is intent on taking advantage of the continuing role virtualization is playing in cloud computing, as well as an ambitious plan by the Malaysian Government to position the country as a regional data center hub.
Brocade has appointed Charlie Foo to the role of vice-president for Asia Pacific effective immediately; he will be responsible for charting the company’s overall growth strategy across the region.
