Dell Force10 S-Series S4810
The Dell Force10 S-Series S4810 is an ultra low-latency 10/40 GbE Top-of-Rack (ToR) switch purpose-built for applications in high-performance data center and computing environments. Leveraging a non-blocking, cut-through switching architecture, the S4810 delivers line-rate L2 and L3 forwarding capacity with ultra low-latency to maximize network performance. The compact S4810 design provides industry-leading density of 48 dual-speed 1/10 GbE (SFP+) ports as well as four 40 GbE QSFP+ uplinks to conserve valuable rack space and simplify the migration to 40 Gbps in the data center core (Each 40 GbE QSFP+ uplink can support four 10 GbE ports with a breakout cable). Powerful QoS features, coupled with Data Center Bridging (DCB) support via a future software enhancement, make the S4810 ideally suited for iSCSI storage environments. In addition, the S4810 incorporates multiple architectural features that optimize data center network flexibility, efficiency, and availability, including Force10’s VirtualScale stacking technology, reversible front-to-back or back-to-front airflow for hot/cold aisle environments, and redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fans.


The S4810 also supports Dell Force10’s Open Automation Framework, which provides advanced network automation and virtualization capabilities for virtual data center environments. The Open Automation Framework is comprised of a suite of inter-related network management tools that can be used together or independently to provide a network that is more flexible, available and manageable while reducing operational expenses.
