New Dell solutions 'changes the game' in networking

25 Apr 2014

Dell has unveiled new networking solutions, designed to help customers deliver faster results, maximise efficiency and transform operations in scale-out and cloud-based environments.

New products introduced include the Dell Networking Z9500, an energy-efficient, highest density per rack unit, and only pay-as-you-grow 10/40 GbE data centre core switch available today.

The tech giant is also helping customers upgrade data centre network architectures to meet new demands imposed by virtualisation, changing traffic patterns, and the nature of today’s workload needs including cloud-based and “as-a-service” offerings.

By using standards-based technologies, Dell delivers architectures that help advance legacy systems, prevent vendor lock-in penalties, and future proof infrastructure for an easier transition to software-defined networking (SDN), cloud-based services and emerging technology approaches such as NFV.

“Dell is committed to changing the game in networking,” says Tom Burns, vice president and general manager, Dell Networking.

“As a follow on to our recent Open Networking announcement, I’m excited about demonstrating more innovation in bringing new and open solutions to our customers regardless of size.

“We’re extending our leadership in SDN, NFV, and advanced new architectures that maximise customer choice and provide superior economics to the way networking has always been done.”

New Dell networking solutions include:

• New Dell Networking Z9500 Ethernet fabric switch – densest, highest performing fixed-form factor switch for scale-out data center and cloud workload designs.

• New Dell Active Fabric Controller - purpose-built software for zero-touch provisioning and orchestration of virtualized networking functions and services.

• New Dell NFV efforts – takes leadership role in industry consortium and joins with industry partners to accelerate NFV adoption.

"Scale-out and cloud data centers are leading the transition to a more programmable, software-driven network infrastructure,” adds John Fruehe, analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.

“Dell's experience in these areas, along with its strong emphasis on a standards-based approach, can be seen in these new networking products.

“This brings the agile benefits of these next-generation workloads to the mainstream, so businesses can drive down their network and management costs."
