Dell Intros Data Center

ROUND ROCK, Texas -- Dell today announced the availability of the Dell Cloud ComputingTM Solution, the first offering developed by its new business unit the Dell Data Center Solutions Division.

The move is designed to address a new business opportunity for Dell, 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 is designed 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 data-intensive customers include major providers of goods and services over the Internet, financial services organizations, national government agencies, institutional university and laboratory environments and upstream petroleum producers.

Dell Cloud Computing combines Dell’s global presence, operational excellence, superior supply chain and engineering capabilities with custom hardware and services based on customers’ unique current and future growth needs.

By taking Dell’s “build-to-order model” to the next step with a “design-to-order” custom hardware and service solution, Dell engineering enables customers to optimize the performance of their IT infrastructure for their specific applications. Those applications use this infrastructure or 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.
