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 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.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.

There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
