BANGALORE, INDIA: Brocade unveiled Brocade data centre fabric manager (DCFM) 10.0. DCFM 10.0, a comprehensive storage network management application, helps customers manage and secure the flow of data within and across multiple fabrics to increase productivity, scalability, and operational efficiency.


Brocade DCFM will provide unified, end-to-end management of data centre fabrics - from storage ports on networked storage systems to Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) attached to physical or virtualised servers.

It can configure and manage the comprehensive portfolio of Brocade storage networking products, which includes Brocade DCX backbones, directors, extension devices, and switches. Brocade DCFM is designed for enhanced scalability to monitor upto 24 multiprotocol fabrics at a time, supporting up to 9000 fabric ports and 20,000 devices ports.

It is also able to perform real-time and historical performance monitoring to enable proactive problem diagnosis, maximize resource utilisation, and facilitate capacity planning.


Brocade DCFM is central to realising Brocade Data Center Fabric (DCF) architecture vision and incorporates the best features of existing Brocade management products. It is available in two configurations:

·Brocade DCFM Enterprise: Provides a non-disruptive path and functional continuity for organisations that are upgrading from Brocade Enterprise Fabric Connectivity Manager (EFCM) or Brocade Fabric Manager.

·Brocade DCFM Professional: Provides a subset of Brocade DCFM Enterprise features, making it ideal for organizations that require a less-extensive management solution for smaller SAN environments up to 1000 ports in a single fabric.
