  • We help our customers accelerate efficiency in the Virtual Era with both “evolutionary” and “revolutionary” approaches to driving towards ITAAS. The evolutionary approach recognizes that “rip and replace” is not an option for many IT shops — and the revolutionary approach applies to new opportunities to redesign IT deployments (e.g., application modernization, datacenter consolidation, platform migration and new businesses). We will help customers drive efficiency without compromise in the Virtual Era with standardization and automation to dramatically reduce IT labor and operational costs even as enterprise class cloud data centers achieve unheard of levels of density. There is more to be done to Accelerate Efficiency.
  • Here’s where Dell’s new cloud solutions can make the most impact: HPCC, Web 2,0, gaming and cloud builders.
  • To design and deploy an average corporate data center today—which analyst estimates say is around 1K-5K sq feet, it’ll take anywhere from 18-24 months. On top of that to get it up and running and connected, you’re looking at another 1-3 months. This data center will have 1000+ connection points—from networking to power to cooling.It’ll be fabric dependent, server utilization may likely reside in the 10% range, it’ll be based on a scale-up notion and your PUE, a measure of power efficiency will range in the 2.0 score. But what if you could drastically reduce up-time, reduce costs, improve flexibility and only pay for what you need?With Dell’s Modular Data Center you can.NEXT: TOMORROW’S DATA CENTER POSSIBILITY
  • With Dell’s MDC you can fully design and deploy in 6 months—end-to-end—and connect it within in 1-2 days with only three points. The power, the network and cooling. It’s as easy as flipping a switchCompletely altering your ability have a completely flexible data center at your fingertips.A shift from virtualized, increased server utilization in the upwards of 60%, converged networks and a scale out mentalityIn fact, in 2008 we looked at a standard DC design to accommodate a specific amount of IT gear, the amount of space required in a containerized solution was approx. 3X’s lessDell MDC’s can support individual workload requirements better than traditional data centers.  One MDC can be set up for low-density IT workload, with an appropriately sized power and cooling solution, and next to it a customer could set up a different MDC with a high-density IT workload and also have appropriately sized power and cooling.NEXT: VIRTUAL v VERTICAL INTEGRATION
