Dell’s Cloud Computing addresses web hosting needs
Dell announced the launch of the Dell Cloud ComputingTM Solution, developed by its newly created business unit, the Dell Data Center Solutions Division.
The announcement addresses the unique needs of businesses operating hyper-scale computing environments that require rack and data center optimized “design–to–order” technology and services.
Dell’s Cloud Computing Solution aims to provide data center optimization, increased energy efficiency, and lower deployment and overall management overhead for customers whose IT infrastructure, or compute cloud, is the “factory” for their business.
These customer types include major providers of goods and services over the Internet such as, financial services organisations, government agencies, university and laboratory environments and upstream petroleum producers.
Dell took its “build-to-order model” to the next step with a “design-to-order” custom hardware and service solution. Dell’s creation allows customers to optimize the performance of their IT infrastructure by using the environment as a virtual computing service, sometimes referred to as “cloud computing.” This customization eliminates the so-called “feature tax” often incurred by customers seeking to leverage general-purpose servers, storage, and networking equipment and services.
“Businesses requiring hyper-scale computing environments – where infrastructure deployments are measured by up to millions of servers, storage and networking equipment – are changing the way they approach IT to drive revenue growth and decrease operational expenses,” Brad Anderson, senior vice president of the Dell Product Group, said in a WebWire release. “Our unique customer interaction, global reach and speed to market position Dell to offer a total ‘design-to-order’ package, optimized for each customer’s needs.”
