Brocade offers subscription-based pricing for network infrastructure

Brocade announced the availability of subscription-based
acquisition option for network infrastructure that allows organizations to
align network capacity with fluctuating business demands.

Brocade Network Subscription is optimized to address the
unique requirements of cloud-based IT environments and represents a viable new
procurement alternative that offers customers the most flexible, open-ended
network acquisition option available today.

Brocade Network Subscription revolutionizes network
acquisition by giving customers the flexibility to scale up and down according
to actual network utilization with minimal risk and no capital outlay.

With Brocade Network Subscription, customers pay
for their network infrastructure on a monthly basis, allowing them to align
network capacity with actual usage and thereby reducing costs and mitigating
capital risk.

Additionally, the open-ended structure of Brocade Network
Subscription affords organizations a new level of flexibility in managing their
technology assets, such as the ability to refresh network technology outside of
traditional purchase cycles.

This unprecedented level of risk mitigation and
flexibility makes Brocade Network Subscription an attractive option for
enterprises, service providers and government entities that are faced with
budget constraints or are looking for more predictable expense management.

Rackspace Hosting is using Brocade Network Subscription
to quickly bring new services to market and to calibrate its network
infrastructure costs with revenues.

Coupling the new acquisition model with the advanced IPv6
capabilities of Brocade application delivery products, Rackspace recognizes the
inherent value of working with Brocade to build out its portfolio of
value-added services.

CSC, a global leader in providing technology-enabled
business solutions and services, determined that the innovative new approach of
Brocade Network Subscription is in perfect alignment with their own business

The pay-as-you-grow aspect of Brocade Network
Subscription is particularly well-suited for the migration to cloud IT
architectures, as it is the most agile option among acquisition models, such as
capital purchases and leasing.

While organizations of all sizes look to the cloud for
different reasons from improving business processes and application
availability to introducing new, value-added services they all view the ability
to quickly address changing internal and external customer needs as a
fundamental business requirement.

At the center of this transition is the network, which
now must be cloud-optimized at all points to fully support cloud-based
applications and services.

With the introduction of Brocade Network Subscription,
Brocade is advancing cloud adoption by providing customers with a flexible
acquisition option that helps them adapt to the demands of the cloud.
