Solutions for data center networks
In this period of unprecedented rearchitecture, data center infrastructure is being transformed into a streamlined, efficient and policy-driven computing fabric that must be responsive to changing application and service demands. As the center of gravity for today’s distributed networking environments, the data center must meet demands for peak performance, feature-rich flexibility, scalability and resiliency, regardless of whether it’s for a small workgroup, large enterprise, Web 2.0 portals, high-performance computing environments or cloud and hosting networks.
- Complexity — In order to keep pace with rapidly changing needs, many organizations have seen their network becoming increasingly complex and inefficient. This only becomes compounded with virtualization and cloud-based applications that scale to all locations.
- Inefficiency — Due to the complexity introduced to the data centers, costs in terms of equipment procurement and ongoing maintenance has continued to rise. A major data center challenge is to arrest these cost overruns and maintain a cost-effective, efficient network while meeting stringent requirements for increasingly heavy cloud-based applications.
- Adaptability — Because business demands continue to change, it is essential that the data center remains agile and able to quickly adapt by augmenting rather than having to "rip and replace" large portions of the network in order to comply with new requirements.
Dell benefits for the data center:
Dell solutions are designed to orchestrate the underlying server, storage and network resources in an open fashion, agnostic of whether they are physical, virtual, local or remote. Our fabrics dynamically scale up, down and out to meet virtualization needs.
Our solutions provide enterprise performance and resiliency using virtualization and automation to simplify network deployments while helping to reduce overall total cost of ownership (TCO) and supporting open, standards-based systems and management solutions.
Dell solutions allow the creation of an efficient, shared infrastructure through the use of virtual switching, which is optimized for the customer’s unique needs. While today it is mobility, the next "killer app" is just over the horizon. Deploying a flexible infrastructure allows you to solve today’s business challenges while also deploying a platform that is ideal to solve future challenges.
