Dell Open Networking and VMware

To make such an ecosystem work requires a commitment to open networking—to a collection of networking tools built around standards. To that end, Dell is partnering with VMware and Cumulus Networks to redefine open networking for the software-defined data center by delivering VMware’s NSX™ network virtualization solution with Cumulus Linux™ OS on Dell networking switches.

Dell S6000 and VMware NSX

Dell and VMware have created a software-defined networking solution to meet todays east-to-west traffic challenges.

One example is the work Dell has done to support VMware’s NSX network virtualization platform for vCenter deployments. Dell’s new S6000 switch offers two-way integration with NSX (as well as supporting controller and programmatic deployments).

Software-Defined Networks

The move to SDN is being driven by the need of data center administrators to
capably respond to today’s demands, such as integrating bring-your-own-device
(BYOD) programs with existing systems. Until recently, networking solutions have
been proprietary, vertically integrated and hierarchical. This structure has
placed handcuffs on IT’s ability to innovate its own solutions, and leads to
vendor lock-in.
