Share Infrastructure: Redefining office IT PowerEdge VRTX

735

Published on

Check out these slides from SpiceWorld London to learn about the first and only full integration of servers, storage, networking and management in a shared platform designed specifically for a small office environment. Why you should consider PowerEdge VRTX.

• Limited office space means you need a small solution.
• IT headcount is limited so you need an IT infrastructure that is easy to manage and does not require specialised installation or management expertise.
• You have too much data that you need to store securely.
• Workforce growth: you are connecting to more such as other offices, suppliers, customers, or the cloud.
