Dell Simplifies Virtualization

ROUND ROCK, Texas -- Building on the momentum of its Virtualization Blockbuster” in May of this year, Dell today announced more new products, management tools and infrastructure consulting services designed to provide customers a smarter path to virtualization. With this announcement, Dell expands its leadership in offering its channel partners a broad line-up of industry-standard virtualization solutions that help customers simplify and lower the cost of managing their IT environments.

“The question isn’t will businesses virtualize, but when, and who can provide the platforms and services to make the rollout a success,” said Rick Becker, vice president of Software and Solutions, Dell Product Group. “While our competitors thrive on complexity to push proprietary hardware, management and services lock-ins, Dell’s virtualization strategy is grounded in choice and defined by industry standards. By offering our customers the latest, industry-proven, technologies, services and reference architectures, we are helping simplify their IT operations without limiting their options for future growth.”

In a separate release:

ROUND ROCK, Texas -- Dell today added to its EqualLogic product line a new, highly-scalable array - the PS5500E - and introduced advanced software features, including the EqualLogic Auto-Snapshot Manager/VMware edition to improve data protection for virtual server environments.

“We’re seeing tremendous response from customers worldwide for the all-inclusive, enterprise-class software features that the Dell EqualLogic PS Series delivers. It’s a clear choice for those seeking a full-featured, intelligent, easy-to-manage storage solution,” said Darren Thomas, vice president and general manager of Dell Enterprise Storage. “Last quarter, our EqualLogic product line was the fastest-growing part of our storage portfolio, and helped make Dell the number one iSCSI storage provider in the world."
