As hyperconverged clusters scale, the network fabric becomes the critical piece of a successful deployment. Dell EMC fabrics deliver:
Dell EMC Fabric solutions provide a proven, fully-integrated and adaptable infrastructure. Our solutions leverage components of a hyperconverged architecture
and purpose-built networking infrastructure elements, created solely to address the requirements of hyper-convergence and efficient data consumption.
Dell EMC Networking and VxRail are driving products and solutions by offering a well-engineered solution for the software defined enterprise that can deliver both operational and infrastructure efficiencies that were previously unavailable. Dell EMC is the only vendor with a complete set of hardware and software products capable of providing the necessary tools for the digital transformation. With the introduction of VxRail 4.7 and Dell EMC Networking OS10 Enterprise Edition SmartFabric Services, the conversation around automated dynamic infrastructure deployment can finally take place. Dell EMC, with VxRail and SmartFabric, is the first and only solution to deliver fully automated network awareness and configuration during set up, cluster expansion, and during day-to-day management to help create IT certainty.
Figure 13. SmartFabric Services
SmartFabric Services is a “one-of-a-kind” feature, part of the Dell EMC OS10 Enterprise Edition flagship networking operating system. Its introduction creates a fully integrated solution between the fabric and a hyperconverged cluster infrastructure such as VxRail.
With SmartFabric Services, customers can quickly and easily deploy and automate datacenter networking fabrics. This enables faster time to production for hyperconverged and private cloud environments at any scale while being fully interoperable with existing datacenter infrastructure.
