Dell expands networking portfolio

Vendor says new solutions aim to ease migration into virtualised and cloud datacentres

Dell has expanded its networking portfolio with the launch of the new Active Fabric solutions and the Networking S5000 modular LAN/SAN switching platform.

The vendor says Active Fabric meets modern datacentres' need for new networking architectures, providing a flat any-to-any multipath network architecture. It supports NVOs using hypervisors from Microsoft, VMware, and OpenStack and it also supports Open Flow-based controllers from vendors including Big Switch Networks.

The Fabric Manager is a software tool that automates the tasks associated with planning, designing, building and monitoring fabrics. According to the vendor, it can reduce deployment time up to 86 percent, compared to a fully manual process.

The Networking S5000 switching platform is Dell's first 1U 10/40GbE top-of-rack LAN/SAN switch, equipped with native FC and FCoE capabilities. It features pay-as-you-grow modularity, and is designed to scale according to Dell. It also includes complete support for feature-rich storage networking, including iSCSI, RoCE, NAS, FCoE and FC fabric services, all on the same platform.

The Dell 10G and 40G Active Fabric solutions are available now, while the Active Fabric Manager v1.5 will be available in late May and the Networking S5000 platform will be available globally from July.
