At Dell Storage Forum we are proud to showcase our innovative solutions that have been designed with customer feedback, and that help our customers achieve their desired business outcomes. Through our interactions with customers, we found that IT is not just measuring their competitive advantage by performance and speed anymore, but also by agility and efficiency. With this focus in mind, we developed more specific guidance that allows a customer to converge all of the active hardware needed for a data center within a single 10U chassis – the Dell Converged Blade Data Center solution.
The Dell Converged Blade Data Center solution is a new architecture using new hardware and form factor innovations, new protocols and improved manageability to give you all of the capabilities you expect in an enterprise-class data center in a very small package. In a single 10U chassis, you get compute, networking and storage without having to compromise enterprise-class features.
Hardware innovations to enable a better application agility and efficiency
We were prescriptive in choosing the initial components in the Dell Converged Blade Data Center solution to help you achieve greater application and service agility and efficiency. If you have other specific needs to be addressed, you also have the flexibility to customize the solution.
Finally, we are providing guidance on the best way to manage this converged solution, leveraging Dell's integrated management approach where we allow customers to manage their physical server and storage infrastructure via the virtual management tools of their choice from either VMware or Microsoft.
How you can use this solution to help your business
The Converged Blade Data Center solution focuses on a few specific use cases that we believe the mid-market customers will be most interested in, based on our customer research associated with the solution:
