Ready Architectures for VDI for appliances enable flexibility in networking selections. VDI validations have been successfully performed with the following hardware, although several other choices are available.
See Dell EMC PowerSwitch S Series 10GbE Switches and Dell EMC PowerSwitch S Series 25/40/50/100 GbE Switches for more information about these switches.
NOTE: Ensure that you follow the deployment and best practices provided in the Dell EMC XC Series Networking Deployment and Best Practices Guide.
Designed for true linear scaling, XC Family devices use a leaf-spine network architecture, which consists of two network tiers: an L2 Leaf and an L3 Spine that is based on 40 GbE and non-blocking switches. This architecture maintains consistent performance without any throughput reduction.
