SAN JOSE, Calif., 11 Nov. 2016. Brocade Communications Systems Inc. in San Jose, Calif., is introducing the Brocade SLX 9850 next-generation data center router for 10/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet data center applications.

The SLX 9850 router includes the embedded Brocade SLX Insight architecture that delivers pervasive network visibility, and uses Brocade Workflow Composer to provide server-based, DevOps-style network automation that integrates across IT domains.

The Brocade SLX Insight architecture includes an open kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) environment to run third-party and customer-specific monitoring, troubleshooting, and analytics applications.

It also provides a dedicated 10 Gigabit Ethernet analytics path between the packet processor on each SLX 9850 interface module and the KVM environment on the management modules.

This enables applications running in the KVM environment to extract data via an internal, isolated link, without disrupting forwarding or control plane traffic.

To deliver the captured data to analytics applications off the platform, the SLX Insight architecture provides flexible streaming options, including a dedicated 10 Gigabit Ethernet services port on each management module for out-of-band streaming as well as streaming via any interface module port.
