Dell has completed the acquisition of Force10 Networks*, a leader in high-performance data center networking. The Force 10 Networks portfolio delivers networking virtualization management and profile-based allocation of physical and virtual resources to workloads based on dynamically changing application needs. The solutions provide enterprise performance and resiliency while reducing overall total cost of ownership, simplifying network deployment, and supporting open, standards-based systems and management solutions.

Next generation data center networks (also known as “fabrics”) must enable automation of virtual machine movement across data centers. Over the past three years, Dell has expanded its enterprise presence into a complete solutions provider, including development of an integrated stack of server, storage, networking and services resources that help customers streamline operations. The addition of networking is a core complement to Dell’s server strength.

The acquisition enables Dell to be able to offer customers a comprehensive end-to-end infrastructure solution across storage, servers and networking.
