Global services and support

Dell™ Services can help reduce IT complexity, lower costs and eliminate inefficiencies by making IT and business solutions work harder for you. The Dell Services team takes a holistic view of your needs and designs solutions for your environment and business objectives while using established delivery methods, local talent and in-depth domain knowledge to help lower your total cost of ownership.

Flexibility refedined

Only Dell M-Series provides complete, snap-in FlexIO scalability down to the switch interconnects. FlexIO technology is the foundation of the M1000e I/O subsystem that has the flexibility you need to design today’s solution and the scalability you require to add or change data center options to meet future demands.


Ethernet

Ethernet


The M-Series enclosure supports a broad set of modular gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 10GbE and Enhanced Ethernet blade switches.

Dell's fully modular PowerConnect™ and Dell Force10™ switches provide great flexibility, with choices of 1Gb to 10Gb speeds, flexible modular uplinks of varying media types, and many other valuable features. The PowerConnect and Dell Force10 portfolio offers a selection of switches that can meet even the most extreme networking demands.

For Cisco Catalyst customers, Dell provides models that span from simple, no frills GbE to more capable models with stacking or even 10GbE uplinks. The more advanced switches feature Cisco's Virtual Blade Switch functionality, enabling you to interconnect up to nine switches to create a single logical switch, thereby simplifying data center management.


Fibre Channel


Brocade 8Gb Fibre Channel Switches provide powerful connectivity to Fibre Channel SANs, such as those offered by Dell/EMC. The M5424 includes 12-port and 24-port configurations as well as a performance pack for enhanced features and management.

For heterogeneous integration into any Fibre Channel network, the Brocade M5424 Fibre Channel switch can even be enabled in Access Gateway mode. Based on N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) functionality, Access Gateway mode delivers the cable aggregation benefits and cost savings offered by Dell’s M-Series blade solutions without separate management or configuration requirements.

Fibre Channel

InfiniBand

InfiniBand


For high-performance computing (HPC) or other environments requiring the highest bandwidth and lowest latency available, the M-Series offers InfiniBand™ switches and adapter cards. Dell offers chassis-integrated quad data rate (QDR) and fourteen data rate (FDR) InfiniBand switches from Mellanox, with speeds of up to 56Gbps. Each switch features 16 internal ports and 8 external ports to ensure the availability and redundancy needed for the most demanding applications.
