The SLX 9140 is a fixed 25/100 GbE top-of-rack leaf switch with 24 MB of packet buffer and an overall throughput of 1.8 Tbps in and out/1.2 Bpps non-blocking switching capacity. It offers forty-eight 25 GbE SFP-28 ports and six 100 GbE QSFP-28 ports.
The SLX 9140 runs Extreme SLX-OS, a fully virtualized Linux-based operating system that delivers process-level resiliency and fault isolation. SLX-OS supports advanced switching features and is highly programmable enabling full lifecycle automation with Extreme Workflow Composer.
ExtremeSwitching SLX 9140 can run onboard applications alongside the switch OS – all without impacting performance. This can help provide network insight through on-board analytics applications and even enable new network applications without the need for a separate hardware device.
