Dell and Cisco team up to explore blade servers

Dell has enhanced its blade server offerings with the introduction of the Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3030 for the Dell PowerEdge Blade Server Enclosure.

The Catalyst Blade Switch 3030 is a connectivity offering that, says Cisco, will help ensure consistency of advanced network services deployment such as security and resiliency, and simplify datacentre management.

Cisco says customers will benefit from advanced features designed to reduce total cost of ownership. The combined Dell and Cisco product integrates switching into the blade environment and can reduce cabling by up to 90%. Cisco also says that it can reduce the datacentre real estate requirements by optimising rack space.

Dell will offer the Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3030 in the coming weeks exclusively for Dell PowerEdge Blade Server Enclosure environments at a starting price of £2,699.
