Dell Networking Z9100-ON Fabric Switch


Networking for the future-ready data center

Networking for the future-ready data center

Dell Networking Z-Series of core/aggregation switches provide optimal flexibility, performance, density and power efficiency for your data center. Offering a range of fixed-form-factor switches, the Z-Series is designed to deliver high performance for today's demanding workloads while providing headroom for future data-center demands.
Ultimate flexibility — from density to deployment

Ultimate flexibility — from density to deployment

Dell Networking Z-Series switches not only simplify manageability, they give you the flexibility to stay ahead of data needs rather than react to them.
  • Optimized leaf/spine architecture with Z-Series switches supports data centers of virtually any size, with up to over 100,000 servers.
  • Exceptionally high density with the Z9100-ON and Z9264F-ON providing up to 128 x10/25GbE ports and the Z93332F-ON providing up to 128x100GbE ports in a single switch.

On-demand performance

For mid-sized to enterprise data centers, pay-as-you-grow licensing or multi-rate options can mean the difference between being leading edge or falling behind. Right out of the box, Z-Series switches give you scalable performance on demand.

  • Multi-rate options including 10, 25, 40, 50, or 100GbE Ethernet ports 
  • Up to 12.8Tbps throughput performance with the Z9264F-ON and up to 25.6Tbps with the Z9332F-ON
  • Exceptional low latency delivering sub microsec latency
  • User-configurable table adjustments for virtualized data-center deployments
