Dell EMC Networking S3048-ON, S4048-ON, S4048T-ON, S6010-ON, S6100-on and Z9100-ON Open Networking switches offer an innovative disaggregated-hardware/software solution for data center networking. Based on our dependable, award-winning Z-Series and S-Series switch hardware and featuring a choice of third-party OS and software options, these solutions give you the power to transform your network and accelerate data-center innovation with simplified, high-capacity network fabrics.
Operating System 10 (OS10) from Dell Networking is an open, modular Network Operating System that leverages an unmodified, open source Linux platform running on Dell S-Series switches (that support ONIE) plus third-party applications. This supports operator programmability to tailor software for different use cases and operational models.
|Leading Verticals||Cloud Service Providers, Financials, Government & Education, Telecom Service Providers and Enterprise|
|In Customer Deployment||Yes|
|OCP Initiatives||Switch Abstraction Interface|
The OS 10 Base Module employs the Open Compute Project Switch Abstraction Interface (SAI) that enables a common, programmer-friendly language between vendor network operating systems and the particular silicon residing on the physical switch.
|Linux Foundation Initiatives||Unmodified Linux|
|Linux Foundation Details||
OS10’s unmodified Linux base provides distinct advantages as customers increasingly look to design applications and data centers across server, storage and networking – not just one silo.
|Performance and Scalability||
