- 22 October, 2015 03:15
Dell has announced new solutions and services, designed to help large-scale data centre customers achieve mission-critical business goals with less cost and downtime.
Unveiled at Dell World 2015 this week - and formerly announced in August - Dell data centre scalable solutions (DSS) is a new line of business within Dell’s Enterprise Solutions organisation designed to meet the specific needs of web tech, telecommunications service providers, hosting companies, oil and gas, and research organisations.
After engaging with over 200 customers in this growing market, the tech giant is now introducing its first DSS-branded products - including the DSS 7000, DSS 1500, DSS 1510 and DSS 2500.
“With today’s rapidly evolving technology landscape, Dell focuses on designing data centre solutions that offer market-leading performance,” says Marius Haas, COO and president, Dell Commercial Sales and Enterprise Solutions.
“They also have the agility and flexibility to keep pace with new workloads and demands, changing architectures and business growth.
“The new solutions and services announced today demonstrate the ability to scale simply and cost-effectively.
This allows large-scale customers to reap the benefits of intelligently designed solutions that reduce total cost of IT ownership and shift the prioritisation of resources from day-to-day IT management to higher-value services that help achieve business results and support growth.”
The proliferation of digital technologies is quickly driving IT organisations to transform their infrastructure and partner more closely with business counterparts to deliver greater insights and value necessary to help improve customer experiences.
“Dell has a good pulse on the needs of its customers and is investing in and developing the right set of 3rd Platform-based technologies and solutions,” adds Matt Eastwood, SVP, Enterprise Infrastructure and Data Centre, IDC.
“This will be critical to help meet the needs for increased utilisation rates and productivity requirements of the digital economy.”
Dell has also unveiled new storage, backup and recovery and data protection services, while also expanding its capability around endpoint protection by delivering the first release of Dell Data Protection - Endpoint Recovery, a new software solution designed to deliver continuous backup.
