Adaptable Architecture

Address today’s data center virtualization and workload density demands with a flexible architecture that delivers cost-effective density, scale, and performance, and a programmable ASIC that can adapt to future protocol and technology innovations without a forklift upgrade.

Embedded Network Visibility

Gain insights that drive faster troubleshooting with the flexible, real-time monitoring of virtualized, dynamic workloads provided by Brocade SLX Insight Architecture and SLX Visibility Services, powered by the SLX-OS

DevOps Inspired Automation

The SLX 9240 and Brocade Workflow Composer™ enable cross-domain automation throughout the network management lifecycle. Our turnkey, customizable approach minimizes execution delays and assures easy integration with cross-domain workflows for efficiency and risk reduction.

Adaptable Architecture

  • Programmable ASIC enables adoption of new protocols and technologies without disrupting network operations
  • High density 100G server connectivity in a 1U fixed form factor switch with a 24MB dynamically shared packet buffer for high performance workloads
  • 3.2 Tbps/1.3Bpps switching capacity for high density and scale for growth
  • Payload timestamping to more accurately set and measure performance SLAs

Embedded Network Visibility

  • Scale services across the network for seamless support of highly distributed multi-tier application workloads
  • Rich network parameter filters (IP and MAC addresses, port numbers, VNIs) and workload matching identify workload-specific actions and mitigate risk
  • Automated application of rule-based actions (count, drop, mirror) to incoming network traffic, with further actions outside the switch including pushing context-rich data to Brocade SLX Insight Architecture or Brocade Workflow Composer and to third-party applications
  • Provides flexible, high-performance data streaming for additional off-device processing, reporting, and archiving, and features industry-leading 128GB of dedicated storage for analytics

Turnkey, Customizable Automation

  • Automation Suites enable out-of-the-box provisioning, validation, troubleshooting and remediation of complex network lifecycle automation
  • Enable event-driven network automation that can be integrated with existing tool chains and cross-domain workflows
  • Transition your data center network at your own pace using turnkey, customizable, or DIY automation tools
  • Leverage thriving community of like-minded peers for support, shared knowledge, and a source of innovation
  • Use of commonly-used languages (Python, Ruby, Mistral) and format eases transition and adoption
  • IP Fabric / BGP provision and validation workflow streamlines and simplifies deployment of L3 BGP deployments
  • Supports industry standard REST/NetConf based APIs with Yang models, OpenFlow, scripting languages and streaming APIs
