With the year coming to an end and DellWorld 2012 underway, I thought I would take a few moments to look at the amazing accomplishments of the Dell Cloud Services team and how we are enabling private, public and hybrid cloud solutions for existing and new customers.
Public Cloud Locations
The first IaaS cloud built on VMware vCloud technology from Dell was launched in late October 2011 in Plano, TX with service availability in the United States. A second cloud site in Quincy, WA was launched in spring 2012 along with cloud service for Canada and Mexico. The third cloud location in the UK was launched in fall 2012 with service to Ireland as well.
As you would expect, our global cloud footprint expansion continues next year as we look to Asia, South America, and more regions in Europe. Please contact your Dell representative or myself if you looking for cloud services in a region currently not served.
Public Cloud Features
In addition to building and deploying global cloud platforms, Dell Cloud Services added several enterprise-level features to the clouds based on customer feedback.
Customers can expect to see continued expansion of feature for our public cloud in 2013. Some exciting new features on the roadmap include load balancing, SharePoint hosting, Internet2 service, and more.
Public Cloud Structure
In addition to our IaaS offerings, Dell has created a unique private cloud offer within our public cloud datacenter known as Dell Cloud Dedicated. Providing users the capabilities of a public cloud while giving IT teams the infrastructure design options they demand including security, stability, and productivity.
Dell Cloud Dedicated meets HIPAA and HITECH security requirements and comes with Dell Boomi integration services.
Coming soon from Dell is the beta release of our open source public IaaS cloud based on OpenStack as well as new solutions in high-performance cloud computing, cloud storage, and concierge level services.
Other Dell Cloud Solutions
In addition to the Dell vCloud solutions, Dell has also been very active in other cloud areas:
As you can see, Dell is building an amazing portfolio of cloud end-to-end solutions for enterprise customers looking to transform their business. It has been great fun for me to lead the social media outreach on these various solutions and I look forward to engaging with customer, partners, and cloud social media leaders in 2013 to promote Dell's cloud technology,
