'Our goal for IRONPOINT is to provide enterprise-class IT infrastructure to small and medium business customers at a public cloud price point. Brocade's VDX is the heart of the Ethernet Fabric and is the holy grail of what we were aiming to achieve in terms of networking our virtual data center infrastructure. This is achieved at a very competitive price and has been backed by a level of engagement with Brocade that makes us very comfortable with our choice of strategic network technology.'
According to Brocade's regional director for the Australia and New Zealand region, Graham Schultz, '6YS is well known for successfully pioneering software as a service, which is really the forerunner of the cloud computing services we are starting to see today.' said Graham Schultz, Brocade's Regional Director for the Australia and New Zealand region.
