Dell EMC holds a substantial portion of the enterprise IT market. The combined entity has a commanding lead in enterprise storage as well as a top spot in server shipments. To bridge these two islands of technology, the company offers many connectivity options for the wide range of workloads where Dell EMC provides solutions. Dell EMC delivers its own branded high-speed Ethernet products as well as a range of fabric connectivity products including third-party Ethernet, fibre channel, InfiniBand, and OmniPath to connect compute to storage.
