Dell Networking S5000 10/40G Unified Storage Switch
Modular 1RU, top-of-rack 10/40 GbE and FC 2/4/8 Unified Storage Switch
Key features include:
Pay-as-you grow modularity, designed to scale – provides for greater deployment flexibility and IT budget allocation compared to fixed-port switches. The S5000 accommodates four modules allowing customers to populate a single module and add as necessary instead of buying all four modules at once.
High-density LAN/SAN convergence – saves on the number of switches and rack space required, the S5000 has up to 1.3 to 2.6 times the port density per rack unit compared to industry alternatives. The S5000 has a maximum of 64 x 10GbE ports, or 48 x Ethernet/FC ports with 16 x 10GbE ports.
Feature-rich storage networking – complete support for iSCSI, RoCE, NAS, FCoE and FC fabric services, all on the same platform.
Future-proof design for maximum investment protection – with the modularity and system design, the S5000 hardware is future-proofed to support newer features and options when released without needing to sacrifice existing infrastructure investment.
Easy integration, proven interoperability with leading adapter, switch and storage vendors including Broadcom, Brocade, Emulex, Intel and Qlogic.
