Dell continues to entrench further in the enterprise sector with its new Open Networking solution with OS10. This next-generation networking software is designed to introduce new levels of software flexibility and programmability in large-scale data center environments. The new software environment advances the functionality of modern data centers by disaggregating network software, so customers have more choice in how software is used throughout IT operations.

“Modern, software-defined, data centers require a fresh approach to operations – not just for the network, but across compute and storage elements as well,” said William Tan, head of Enterprise Solutions, Dell Malaysia. “We’re excited about these new products. “OS10 gives customers a future-ready springboard to innovate their networks and data center infrastructure more quickly and consistently, affording customers greater efficiency and capability at scale.”

“OS10 represents an interesting new direction for Dell as it continues to extend and enhance its networking portfolio with innovations in software and hardware,” said Brad Casemore, Research Director, Datacenter Networks, IDC. “It’s worth noting that Dell also is looking beyond networking as an operational silo or a discrete domain, anticipating fast-evolving requirements for consumption models, IT operations, and the breaking down of traditional IT silos.”

Disaggregating the Network OS Stack
The OS10 platform is designed around new benchmarks for open software modularity so users can create the most efficient and flexible paths across networked systems. OS10 is comprised of a base module and various optional application modules. Now, what had formerly been bundled into tightly-integrated, vendor-specific stacks, has been separated to enhance customer choice, control and programmability.

 

OS10 from Dell Networking provides the unique flexibility and programmability necessary for a modern cloud provider to innovate and succeed in a fast-changing environment. We’re already seeing significant operational benefits from having server-like manageability combined with our server-centric automation tools.” – Jason Long, ‎Director, Network Architecture & Operations, Joyent

Availability
In March, Dell expects OS10 base module will begin shipping and Dell-developed application modules will enter beta testing for release later in the year.
