SAN Switch Reference Architectures

As part of Dell's continuing effort to provide the best technical guidance available, Dell's SIS team runs a test and validation program focused on Ethernet switches used in EqualLogic SANs. Each switch that is tested is then added to the EqualLogic Compatibility matrix list. In addition, we publish the reference architecture SAN design documents at the link below as part of each switch test program.

Thanks to the Dell PG Storage Infrastructure and Solutions Team for putting these together!
