Dell is excited to return to Las Vegas for Interop 2015, the leading independent technology conference and expo series designed to inspire and inform the world's IT community. Interop 2015 will held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, April 27-May 1. The Dell Networking presence at Interop 2015 will be stronger than ever, with events including:
This year at Interop, Dell will introduce new Future-Ready Solutions for the Next Generation Open Networking Data Center. Dell’s Open Networking (wiki) is a paradigm shift that provides open and innovative networking choices by leveraging standardized, innovative and best-or-breed solutions which serve customers unique needs. Dell’s open networking switches empower customers to integrate best of breed networking operating systems and a comprehensive suite of design, deployment and management services. Open networking builds the foundation for a truly future-ready data center that is software-defined, hardware- accelerated and standards-driven.
Z9100-ON Ethernet Fabric Switch
At Interop we will be showing the Z9100-ON’s high speed 100GbE capabilities and its flexibility to support multi-rate port speeds within a single, high density, 1RU switch. Connected to servers that show each of the 10/25/40/50 and 100GbE port speeds, Dell will show how the Z9100-ON is an effective switch for aggregation and access layer deployments, supporting high performance and big data workloads.
S3048-ON Open Networking Switch
Accelerate applications in high performance environments with a low-latency, top-of-rack (ToR) switch that features 48 x 1GbE and 4 x 10GbE ports, a dense 1U design and up to 260Gbps performance. The S3048-ON also supports Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) for zero-touch installation of alternate network operating systems.
4048-ON Open Networking Switch
Optimize your network for virtualization with a high-density, ultra-low latency ToR switch that features 48 x 10GbE SFP+ and 6 x 40GbE ports (or 72 x 10GbE ports in breakout mode) and up to 720 Gbps performance. The S4048-ON also supports Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) for zero-touch installation of alternate network operating systems.
X-Series Smart Managed Switches
Recently, Dell also announced an enhanced networking portfolio designed specifically to meet the needs of small to medium-sized businesses, including the all new X-series family of smart managed switches. Cut through the complexity of network management with Dell Networking X-Series smart web-managed 1GbE and 10GbE switches. From initial setup to monitoring and troubleshooting, every task is streamlined with features that are inspired by the way IT professionals think and work.
Imagine sizing your data center resources incrementally, as needed, and then easily changing them, rapidly addressing new workload demands. That's exactly what the Dell PowerEdge FX converged infrastructure is designed to do. Its modular architecture is scalable, block by block, to optimally fit any computing environment and support legacy or modern workloads on a single platform. Some of the available modular building blocks that will be showcased at Interop include:
Dell SonicWall SuperMassive next-generation firewalls. Meet the needs of growing and distributed enterprise networks, with massive scalability.
Wireless Network Security. High-speed 802.11ac wireless combined with industry-leading next-generation firewall technology.
Secure Mobile Access / Secure Remote Access . Ensure only trusted users, devices and authorized mobile apps gain VPN access to company resources.
The Dell Expo Booth will feature a several product demonstrations and a mini-theater where you can learn the latest on our products and solutions directly from Dell product development engineers and strategists.
Included in these presentations will be discussions led by Greg Ferro and Ethan Banks of PacketPushers, one of the most influential blogs and podcasts focused on the Networking and IT industry.
Our expo booth will also showcase our series of Virtual Racks for Servers, Storage and Networking. These web-based demo tools provide an interactive view into our complete ESG portfolio with product videos, presentations and detailed specifications for every offering.
We look forward to seeing you at Interop Las Vegas 2015. Admission to the expo is free, and Dell is offering a $500 discount to the full conference when using promo code XYILVE198.
