The move of NxtGen to embrace software networking that leverages new IP technology enabled the company to reduce both CapEx and OpEx while providing differentiated new services.

NxtGen Data Centre & Cloud Services has leveraged Brocade's new IP networking infrastructure solutions to increase its business growth and innovation.

The move enabled the company to reduce both its capital expenditure and operational expenditure while providing differentiated new services.   

According to A.S. Rajgopal- MD & CEO of NxtGen Data Center & Cloud Services: "Demand for cloud services in South Asia is growing rapidly, but to succeed in this market and stay ahead of the competition, it is essential to keep costs low so end-to-end data center automation is critical." 

"Brocade's open, programmable architecture, strong commitment to network functions virtualisation, and excellent integration with Microsoft Hyper-V made its New IP networking solution a compelling value proposition for us," he continued.

The new network infrastructure comprises of Brocade vRouters and VDX 6740T switches, which will enable NxtGen to streamline enterprise cloud services fulfillment at its high-density data centres.

In line, the VDX 6740T switches support Brocade VCS Fabric technology, enabling multiple switches to form a self-configuring, self-healing and scalable Ethernet fabric, thus removing the need for additional network switching layers and delivers low-latency performance.

Additionally, the VCS fabrics are virtual machine-aware and support Automated Migration of Port Profiles (AMPP) in the Hyper-V environment providing seamless integration with Microsoft's server virtualisation platform.

NxtGen is also leveraging Hyper-V hosts-- which is running on the same industry-standard hardware it uses for customer service delivery --to support virtualised network functions. The Brocade vRouters leverage the Intel Data Plane Development Kit to attain up to 10 Gpbs of throughput per processor core thus helping ensure fast performance on a virtualised platform.
