Brocade expands data centre networking solutions

Advancements in Data Centre Automation and Network Visibility Combined with New Brocade SLX Switches Enable Business Agility at Cloud Speed.
Brocade has announced an expanded Brocade SLX family with new innovative switches that feature unparalleled network visibility and the addition of Brocade Workflow Composer Automation Suites for turnkey automation.
This is the industry’s first data centre networking portfolio to deliver agility at all layers of the data centre stack, while being open to provide customers with choice. With Brocade, organisations can build networks that allow them to quickly adapt to technology transitions, deliver new services at cloud speed and accelerate digital transformation.
Building on the Brocade SLX 9850 routing solution that Brocade introduced in September, the new Brocade SLX 9140, SLX 9240 and SLX 9540 data centre switches deliver flexible leaf, spine and edge connectivity while leveraging the Brocade SLX Insight Architecture.
By embedding network visibility on every router and switch, organisations can achieve pervasive visibility throughout the network to quickly identify problems, accelerate mean-time-to-remediation and improve overall service levels. The Brocade SLX 9140 and 9240 extend these capabilities with a programmable ASIC that provides Visibility Services from the physical wire to virtual networks and workloads.
New automation suites, including Network Essentials, Data Centre Fabrics and Internet Exchange Points for the Brocade Workflow Composer platform, powered by StackStorm, provide automated network provisioning, validation, troubleshooting and remediation workflows.
These automation suites are ideal for customers who want to jumpstart their automation journey with pre-built workflows to accelerate time-to-value.  Introduced earlier this year, Brocade Workflow Composer is a server-based, DevOps-style network automation platform that integrates across IT domains for end-to-end workflow automation.
