Unapređenja u automatizaciji data centra i vidljivosti mreže s novim Brocade SLX svičevima

Brocade proširuje ponudu rešenja za data centar


Kompanija Brocade upravo je predstavila novu porodicu SLX® svičeva koja donosi do sada nedostignutu vidljivost mreže uz dodatak programa za automatizaciju pod nazivom Brocade Workflow Composer™. Radi se o jedinstvenoj gami rešenja za umrežavanje u data centru koja donose agilnost na svim slojevima data centra, uz otvorenost koja ostavlja korisniku mogućnost izbora. Sa Brocade-om, organizacije mogu da grade mreže koje im omogućuju da se brzo prilagode tehnološkim promenama, nastave da isporučuju nove servise brzinom clouda i ubrzaju digitalnu transformaciju.

 

Gradeći se na rešenju za rutiranje pod oznakom Brocade SLX 9850 koje je Brocade predstavio u septembru, novi data centar svičevi Brocade SLX 9140, SLX 9240 i SLX 9540 donose fleksibilno povezivanje u leaf, spine i edge formaciji primenjujući istovremeno Brocade SLX Insight arhitekturu™. Ugrađivanjem mrežne vidljivosti na svakom ruteru i sviču, organizacije mogu da postignu potpunu vidljivost u celoj mreži radi brze identifikacije i reševanja problema, i ukupnog unapređivanja nivoa servisa. Brocade SLX 9140 i 9240 proširuju te mogućnosti sa programabilnim ASIC čipovima koji omogućavaju Servise Vidljivosti od fizičke žice do virtuelnih mreža i paketa.

 

New automation suites, including Network Essentials, Data Center 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.

 

According to IDC1, two-thirds of CEOs at Global 2000 companies will place digital transformation at the center of their corporate strategies by the end of 2017. CEOs recognize they must become a digital organization to accelerate the pace of innovation and drive competitive advantage or risk being displaced by more nimble competitors. Fast innovation can only happen with an agile IT foundation where automation works seamlessly with network visibility while digitally connecting all IT domains and functions together to eliminate silos and deliver end-to-end automation.

 

"Organizations that are going through digital transformation need networks that are extremely agile, extensively automated and highly visible," said Jason Nolet, senior vice president, Switching, Routing and Analytics Products Group, Brocade. "Brocade is delivering the breadth and depth of flexibility and agility that sets us apart from other network providers. We do so vertically across the data center stack, and horizontally across domains within the data center -- while being open at every layer."

 

Brocade SLX Family Advancements

  • The new Brocade SLX 9140 leaf switch provides native 48x25 GbE server-facing ports and 6x100 GbE ports in a 1U fixed form factor. It also features flexible 1/10/25/40/100 GbE configuration options.
  • The new Brocade SLX 9240 spine switch delivers high density 32x100 GbE ports in a 1U fixed form factor.
  • Both the Brocade SLX 9140 and SLX 9240 switches feature the first programmable ASIC in their class of switch enabling Brocade to rapidly deliver new capabilities via software. This eliminates expensive forklift upgrades for customers when new technologies and protocols are introduced into the environment. The ASIC builds on the Brocade SLX Insight Architecture, an open kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) environment to run third-party and customer-specific monitoring, troubleshooting and analytics applications, by adding Visibility Services to provide insight into virtual networks and workloads. Actions can be taken within the switch or through applications and tools outside of the switch, such as Splunk or Brocade Workflow Composer.
  • The Brocade SLX 9540 switch delivers carrier-class features in a cost-effective 1 RU fixed form factor optimized for data center interconnect, WAN edge and Internet exchange point deployments. It offers 48x10 GbE ports and 6x100 GbE ports.

 

Brocade Workflow Composer Automation Suites
Designed to run with the Brocade Workflow Composer platform, Brocade automation suites are ideal for IT organizations seeking to embrace automation but have limited automation development skills and resources. The suites provide out-of-box network lifecycle automation for commonly performed tasks and are packaged to address major use cases. Each automation suite includes documentation and a collection of turnkey, yet customizable workflows, services, sensors, actions, and rules. Customers can use Brocade automation suites as is or as starter kits for building or customizing workflows specific to their data center requirements to reduce time-to-value.
