Propel software-defined network innovation with Open Networking
Over the past few years, there has been much discussion about disaggregating networks in order to give organizations more choice in building the foundations needed for future-ready infrastructures. Traditional networks are struggling to support increases in traffic, devices and security risks. Upgrading networks to meet these challenges is difficult because traditional networks operate as technology silos that require proprietary hardware and software as well as rigid processes and specialized skill sets for systems administrators In order to meet today’s rapidly evolving business challenges, organizations need more choice and control over their network infrastructure.
The age of network innovation through disaggregation has arrived. This disaggregated networking model allows organizations to choose among various industry-standard networking switches, network applications and network operating systems to meet their specific business needs. The disaggregated networking model provides consistent computing and networking with a common deployment and operation model. Through this open networking approach, customers can realize lower operation and capital expenditures while simultaneously breaking free from vendor lock-in.
By disaggregating the network customers can benefit from a more flexible platform that IT professionals control at every level. Organizations that want to implement a future-ready infrastructure should look closely at Dell, a leader in open systems. IT departments can now run Linux on Dell switches and servers. Customers can also adopt software-defined networking (SDN) solutions with Dell technologies, And regardless of the requirements and the size of an organization, Dell provides innovative solutions and support services. Dell offers the largest set of Open Networking solutions available today with application specific integrated circuits (ASICs).
