History of Dell Data Center Solutions
In March 2007, Dell introduced a new line of business called Dell Data Center Solutions (DCS) to specifically address the needs of the world’s largest web and social media companies. These hyperscale customers were building significant datacenter capacity that needed a new type of server to support their massive scale. We continue to partner with these customers to design and build fully custom and tailored solutions to address their unique needs.
Dell was the first major vendor to recognize the unique requirements of the hyperscale market when it created DCS and since has celebrated many milestones, including:
Introducing Dell Datacenter Scalable Solutions
The market has evolved since the creation of DCS, with a growing number of businesses just below the hyperscale space in size – including research organization, oil & gas, web tech, telecommunications service providers and hosting companies. These customers were expressing similar needs in how they buy and build datacenter capabilities, but without the need or desire for fully tailored solutions.
Over the years, Dell has consistently focused on these customers and their changing needs. From DCS to delivering PowerEdge C products, the customer always comes first. Now Dell is evolving with the market by creating a new business model to address the unique needs of these customers, called Dell Datacenter Scalable Solutions (DSS). Dell DSS is focused on creating agile, scalable, and repeatable processes to serve a market of customers who require agility and flexibility from product design to fulfillment to services.
Dell DSS is able to leverage the quality of Dell’s enterprise and DCS portfolio, along with Dell’s global support and supply chain capabilities, to give customers exactly what they want. Key capabilities include:
By leveraging our years of hyperscale expertise from DCS, Dell DSS is able to understand customers’ business drivers and enable them to continue to expand and grow their business globally.
