“Brocade is prepping the launch of a single management platform that combines the company’s IronView Network Manager (INM) and Brocade Data Center Fabric Manager (DCFM) applications into a unified management tool for SAN and IP networks,” according an article posted on Enterprise Storage Forum.
The unified management platform, dubbed Brocade Network Advisor (BNA), will be available in November and will encompass management of Brocade’s Fibre Channel SANs, IP networks, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), wireless and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks.
Management functionality will include configuration, monitoring, and reporting from a single GUI, including role-based access controls, network monitoring, traffic analysis, fault isolation, change management and policy-driven remedial actions.
BNA is part of the Brocade One architecture, announced earlier this year, which integrates all of the company’s operating systems and management tools.
