These are just a portion of the advantage you can experience by deploying the Dell Networking S5000 unified storage switch and/or the Dell Networking MXL switch with the Fibre Channel Flex I/O module. As shown in this calculator, immediate cost reductions are gained by cutting adapters and switches in half. Additional savings not shown include reduced cabling, power and cooling, and IT management time through a converged data center infrastructure. In fact, IDC has estimated that businesses that implement a fully converged, end-to-end network can save up to 34% annually.*
