Brocade and Hyve Solutions Partner to Deliver Fully Integrated Big Data Solutions Using Industry-Leading Brocade VCS Fabric Network Technology

Pre-Tested Data Center Integrated Stack Helps Deliver Unmatched Scale, Performance and Automation for Big Data Applications in Hadoop and Lustre Environments

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- SUPERCOMPUTING 2012 - Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD), the industry leader in fabric networking, and Hyve Solutions -- a division of SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX) and a leader in purpose-built, data center server and storage solutions -- today announced a definitive agreement to build a family of fully integrated, pre-tested data center solutions to deliver unmatched scale, performance and automation for the Big Data market.

Hyve Solutions is building the integrated solutions based on its server platform and industry-leading Brocade® VCS® Fabric technology, along with offerings from an ecosystem of mutual partners. The first two integrated solutions in this family are being demonstrated this week at Brocade's booth (#1101) at Supercomputing 2012 in Salt Lake City, Utah, in addition to the IBM booth (#1018) and WARP Mechanics booth (#1111).

Big Data applications require a high-performance, fabric-based network infrastructure tightly integrated with purpose-built, high-density, flexible and efficient server and storage solutions. The Brocade VDX® 8770 Switch with VCS Fabric technology provides the low-latency, high-performance cut-through architecture to address the bursty and variable traffic patterns inherent in Big Data applications. The result is a flexible VCS fabric that is designed for both scalability and performance. As network needs grow, capacity can be added without manual configuration as new switches self-provision when connected to the fabric. Network capacity can be added five times faster than with competitive offerings. VCS fabrics also provide superior network efficiency and resiliency with load-balanced, multipathing innovations at Layers 1 through 3 of the network, enhancing Big Data application performance while maximizing available network bandwidth.

Coupled with Hyve Solutions server and storage offerings, this networking infrastructure creates a custom, turnkey, fully integrated, network, server and storage solution specifically designed for Big Data environments that require innovative server and storage designs. Hyve Solutions' server and storage solutions integrate density, efficiency, flexibility, quality and cost-effective designs, elements that are critical for an effective Big Data platform.

As part of the agreement announced today, Brocade and Hyve Solutions will qualify, test and deliver a comprehensive family of fully integrated, pre-tested solutions for the Big Data market, including:

  • The Hyve Solutions bigD series2 and series8 products are built on servers from Hyve Solutions in addition to Brocade VDX switches, Brocade ICX® 6610 switches, and the Brocade 1860 Fabric Adapter. Targeting customers that use the Apache™ Hadoop® open-source software framework, the Hyve Solutions bigD series2 and series8 solutions also integrate industry-leading hardware and software from IBM (BigInsights Hadoop), Zettaset and Fusion I/O to deliver unmatched performance and reliability for Hadoop environments.
  • A Scale Out File System product, based on the open-source Lustre file system, targets the high-performance computing (HPC) storage infrastructure market space and leverages the WARP Mechanics PetaPod Appliance, Hyve Solutions servers, Brocade VDX 8770 switches, Brocade ICX 6610 switches and the Brocade 1860 Fabric Adapter.

"This agreement with Hyve Solutions is a significant milestone for Brocade," said Jason Nolet, Vice President, Data Center Networking Group, Brocade. "Working hand-in-hand with Hyve Solutions, an industry leader in purpose-built data center server and storage solutions, Brocade can help deliver best-in-class Big Data solutions built on Brocade VCS fabrics and backed by a robust network of hardware and software partners."

"Hyve Solutions is pleased to partner with Brocade to provide customers with powerful and innovative solutions for their Big Data challenges," said Steve Ichinaga, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Hyve Solutions. "Brocade's expertise, innovation and industry-leading Ethernet switches provide the high-performance networking foundation Hyve Solutions requires to deliver these Big Data solutions."

Customers benefit from Hyve Solutions technical expertise, superior integration and testing, and its network of partnerships with leading hardware vendors such as Brocade. In addition, Hyve Solutions will be integrating Brocade technical support into its own support services by leveraging the Brocade SI Cooperative Support Program, which allows partners access to a complete Brocade knowledge base and expertise.

Quote Sheet:

Analyst:
"Big data use cases have the power to radically transform how organizations use information. IT needs to understand that big data is not simply big volume, and that big data projects may fail if they don't pay attention to variety, velocity and complexity, as well as volume. IT should expect significant infrastructure re-engineering and budget changes as priorities shift to big data processing and analysis."
Big Data Challenges for the IT Infrastructure Team, Sheila Childs, Merv Adrian, Gartner, Feb. 10, 2012
