Dell expands portfolio of VMware cloud and edge solutions

Dell is announcing additional capabilities to its portfolio of VMware solutions, spanning from the edge to the core to the cloud. 

These new solutions and enhanced integrations are designed to help customers achieve IT transformation goals with a unified, seamless experience across PC and mobile devices, software-defined data centres, hyper-converged infrastructures and multi-cloud platforms.

According to ESG’s 2018 IT Transformation Maturity Study commissioned by Dell EMC and Intel, 88% of IT leaders said their companies are under pressure to deliver products and services faster. This requires having a more agile approach to IT. 

At many companies, the time it takes for a product or service to go from concept to general availability depends on where a company is on its IT transformation journey. 

A more responsive IT department allows the business to respond more quickly to evolving external customer demands.   

 Dell Technologies vice chairman Jeff Clarke says, “From the moment an employee first boots up their device, they’re generating information that can – and should – be used across the enterprise to make smarter, data-driven decisions.

“When technology infrastructure exists in silos, businesses can’t outpace competitors, can’t grow and can’t scale.”

“Working together across the entire spectrum of IT infrastructure, Dell and VMware empower customers to clear unnecessary administrative tasks off IT to-do lists while making users happier and more productive.” 

Some of the enhancements to Dell’s portfolio of VMware-based solutions include:

  • A ready-to-work experience enabling employees to boot up, log in, and be productive in minutes. Preconfigured apps and settings reduce time and resources associated with manual device imaging, repackaging and shipment. The Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE service enables automatic device setup and extends the efficiencies of cloud management to configuration and deployment.
  • Simplified PC lifecycle management with expanded Dell PC-as-a-Service offerings for more customers and regions, including PCaaS for Business (20 to 300 units) and PCaaS for Enterprise (more than 300 units). Dell offers the latest PCs, deployment options – including Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE, software, peripherals, lifecycle services and financing – at a single, predictable price per seat per month. 
  • Increase workload capacity, performance, scalability and control with the new Dell EMC VxRail G560, which delivers greater density in a 2U form factor. The Dell EMC VxRail G560 outperforms the previous Dell EMC VxRail G Series with 1.75X more cores; 2X increase in processing power; 4X more memory; and 3X capacity increase improvement in the boot device.
  • Investment protection with Dell EMC’s Future-Proof Loyalty Program protects customers’ core, edge and cloud investments, now including first-time HCI solution support with Dell EMC VxRail, for a set of advanced technology capabilities and programs that enable Dell EMC solutions to offer value for the entire lifetime of customers’ applications.

Enhancements to Dell’s cloud-enabled infrastructure solutions and services portfolio are designed to help customers maximise the value of their IT ecosystem and multi-cloud environments.
