Scalable 10Gb performance switch
Deliver efficient 10Gb wire-speed switching for virtualized, large campus and small data center environments with the PowerConnect™ 8024.
- High throughput: Supports wire-speed performance with up to 24 ports of 10GbE and four combo ports
- Scalable with high availability: Manages multiple wire-speed switches as a single unit, each with redundant power
- Energy conscious: Reduces power to ports in sleep mode or cuts power to inactive ports, while the 80 PLUS-certified power supply helps lower overall power and cooling costs
Performances 10GbEDéployez un débit et une disponibilité élevés pour votre système d'entrée de gamme « Top-of-Rack », l'agrégation et les déploiements de structure unifiée avec le commutateur PowerConnect 8024 10 GbE haute densité. Il offre une connectivité 10 GbE écoénergétique pour les environnements Ethernet convergés prenant en charge la virtualisation dense, l'agrégation de serveurs/stockage 10 Go et les armoires de câblage pour moyennes et grandes entreprises. Le commutateur 8024 est aussi doté de fonctionnalités de routage de couche 3, d'une redondance et d'un refroidissement de l'avant vers l'arrière dans un format 1U compact. Étendez votre réseau en toute simplicité en empilant jusqu'à six commutateurs (gérés comme une seule unité) pour des environnements hautement disponibles, tout en bénéficiant d'une sécurité et de fonctionnalités de gestion d'entreprise solides.
Storage-network readySatisfy converged network requirements for data center bridging (DCB) with such features as Priority-based Flow Control (802.1Qbb), iSCSI optimization with iSCSI TLV support, DCBx discovery and 10Gb wire-speed performance on all ports. iSCSI traffic can also be monitored at the fabric level, allowing you to track active iSCSI sessions.
PowerConnect™ 8000 Series switches support Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) connectivity with the FCoE Initialization Protocol (FIP) snooping feature. This allows converged Ethernet and FCoE data streams to pass seamlessly to the top of rack.
To simplify connectivity with Dell™ EqualLogic™ arrays, the iSCSI auto-configuration feature, available in all 8000 Series switches, automatically detects the arrays and configures the switch for optimal data transfers. This feature is enabled by default, streamlining the process to no more than simply connecting a cable. Similarly, connecting Dell™ Compellent™ arrays is accomplished with a single command configuration.
10Gb performance and flexibilityExperience the benefits of 10GbE in a compact and reliable switching platform, with the quality and great service of Dell PowerConnect 8024 and 10GbE provide a superb return on IT investment through:
- Investment protection: 10GbE is a network fabric of the future, with an ever-expanding ecosystem of solutions and the capabilities to help you grow.
- Energy efficiency: Reduce power requirements and heat loads by replacing multiple GbE components in your infrastructure with 10GbE.
- High performance: Enable 480Gb of throughput for wire-speed 10Gb switching.
Efficacité énergétiqueLa gamme PowerConnect 8024 ménage l'environnement autant que votre budget. Conçu pour réaliser des économies d'énergie de vos cordons d'alimentation à vos ports, le bloc d'alimentation redondant PowerConnect 8024 opère à une efficacité minimum de 80 % dans tous les modes. Les ventilateurs à vitesse variable règlent automatiquement leur vitesse en fonction des conditions environnementales, et les ports 10GBASE-T écoénergétiques réduisent la consommation énergétique pour les câbles plus courts.
High availabilityThe PowerConnect™ 8024 is designed to be highly available, with dual internal hot-swap power supplies and removable hot-swap fan modules. It also incorporates dual firmware images to enable image promotions or image redundancy in the network.
Flexible managementMonitor and manage the power-saving features, high-availability functions and other switch operations from your choice of management options, including:
- Industry-standard command-line interface (CLI)
- Remote management using the embedded Web server and browser-based graphical-user interface (GUI)
- Support for SNMP-based management applications, such as OpenManage Network Manager
Single IP stack management allows simple scalability without adding complexity.
