Dell also announced its latest XC series of Web-scale Converged Appliances that integrate compute, storage and hypervisor resources into a single offering. The highest density XC Series appliance to date, the Dell XC6320, has four compute nodes supporting more than 44 terabytes of storage in a 2U form factor. On the other hand, the densest XC series all-flash appliances are the XC630-10F and XC6320-6F all-flash nodes.
Dell likewise launched its new campus network architecture designed for simplified deployment, manageability and investment protection. It is powered by the Dell Networking C9010 Network Director and C1048P Rapid Access Nodes.
The Dell Networking C9010 Network Director can scale up to 4,000 virtual ports and currently supports 10 and 40 gigabit Ethernet, and tool-free upgrade up to 100GbE in the future to address the growing bandwidth requirements of a diverse campus of endusers and endpoints. For initial deployments, the C9010 can be deployed as a traditional campus switching platform without the Dell Networking C1048P Rapid Access Node serving to aggregate legacy switching platforms in wiring closets. The C1048P, on the other hand, can be deployed either stand-alone or in a stacked configuration. It can extend capabilities of C9010 Network Director by providing enhanced power over Ethernet as well as user access and connectivity back to the C9010.
