Dell and Big Switch Networks (BSN) offer:
Exploding data center network traffic and the spread of virtualization technologies require a backbone infrastructure that will stay ahead of these demands. IT departments need software-defined solutions that go beyond today’s monolithic legacy networking platforms to address dynamically changing business needs and simplify deployment and operations while reducing costs. Together Dell and Cumulus are transforming the network with an innovative solution that combines the industry’s first, full-featured Linux OS with market-leading and field tested Dell Ethernet switching platforms. Dell with Cumulus can help you realize the full potential of a software-defined data center.
Together Dell and IP Infusion are helping organizations gain greater flexibility to build, run and manage multiprotocol label switching (MPLS-) based virtual networks, independent of the physical network and provision services more quickly. This joint solution provides a competitive edge through maximum operational efficiency, agility and security.
Network virtualization overlays using Midokura’s Enterprise MidoNet platform over robust network underlays with Dell switches give you the power to do more, at cloud scale across a global environment. Dell and the Midokura Enterprise MidoNet team deliver an end-to-end solution with the flexibility to unify pools of virtualized and non-virtualized IT assets. Network virtualization with Midokura Enterprise MidoNet and the Dell data center S6000 switches provide the programmability, automation and cloud scalability to meet today’s complex network requirements.
To address the needs of a business world that is rapidly transforming to become digital-centric, Pluribus has developed its Open Netvisor® Linux (ONVL) switch operating system to run on Dell Open Networking (ON) switches. Without the need for an external controller, the Dell ON Ethernet Switches powered by Pluribus ONVL federate into a single Virtualization-Centric Fabric (VCF™), offering unprecedented insight, agility and security. Pluribus ONVL and Dell ON switches work together to enhance the deployment of networking infrastructure well beyond what is possible with traditional network approaches or simpler operating systems, while maintaining complete compatibility with all of the existing networking components already in place. Together, Pluribus and Dell provide a proven approach to connecting systems, enabling deep insight into the usage of all resources, and rapidly responding to changing business needs.
