ROUND ROCK, Texas -- Dell today celebrates the second anniversary of the creation of its Data Center Solutions (DCS) division. Established in March 2007, DCS has revolutionized the economics of hyper-scale computing with its optimized, design-to-order hardware and services.

The News:

In March 2007, Dell created a new division, DCS, to address the cloud computing business opportunity and to meet the unique needs of companies operating hyper-scale computing environments.

DCS customers are businesses who require a vast amount of computing horsepower to run data-intensive applications. These include major providers of Internet services, financial services organizations, national government agencies, institutional universities, laboratory environments and energy producers.

DCS works with these customers, at an engineer-to-engineer level, to develop a fully-optimized cloud computing solution that is tuned to their physical facility, operating processes and application workload.This unique, real-time design process enables DCS customers to quickly incorporate the latest technologies in their data centers. Cutting edge component selection, combined with Dells strength in mechanical and thermal design, allow customers to benefit fully from the improved efficiency and performance that a purpose-built system can deliver.

In computing clouds, software provides application availability across thousands of servers. This architecture and operating environment render unnecessary many of the system features required by mainstream IT. By designing to customer’s specific needs, DCS eliminates these unnecessary components, driving down costs and improving efficiency.

Dell’s customized, innovative approach helps large platform operators speed deployment, lower total operating costs and reduce the environmental impact of their data centers.
