IBM Expands Relationship With Brocade

IBM today confirmed reports that it will be expanding its relationship with network equipment vendor Brocade Systems (BRCD). The move is widely seen as a response to the decision by IBM partner Cisco Systems to enter the blade server market, where IBM is a major player. Whatever the dynamics between IBM and Cisco, the announcement is major news for Brocade, validating its decision to buy ethernet switch maker Foundry Networks. In this video, Brocade’s CEO Mike Klayko comments on the significance of the expanded OEM agreement with IBM, which will rebrand and sell Brocade products. This video runs about 2 minutes, 45 seconds.
