An analytics offloading use case conducted by ACG Research compares the total cost of ownership of Brocade’s architecture with two PMO alternative architectures. The Brocade architecture has 23 percent to 33 percent lower TCO than the PMO alternatives. Brocade’s advantage is due to its use of virtual network functions hosted on virtual machines and the agility and elasticity achieved though Brocade’s orchestration system. A network monitoring and customer experience management use case compares the TCO of Brocade’s virtual architecture to an appliance-based architecture (PMO) and finds a 43 percent TCO savings for the Brocade architecture.
