  • ACCelerating Learning for STEM Students 26 February 2015, 02:30 PM Austin Community College (ACC) is rethinking how it is engaging students by personalizing the learning experience to prepare for the challenges of the 21st-century workforce. In the fall, ACC opened its beautiful, new campus at the old Highland Mall in central Austin.  Dell partnered with ACC to create a digital-learning environment that supports students and faculty with the tools and access they need to be successful. ACC concurrently launched a new campus that reinvented the idea of a college campus, introduced cutting-edge technology, and overhauled a core curriculum using adaptive lea...

I couldn’t help but think that somehow big data analytics played a role in the company’s decision to spend big bucks to air a commercial during the Super Bowl. If so, this is a...
  • “Dude, What’s Happening with our VMs?” Find out Fast with Foglight for Virtualization 8.0. 03 March 2015, 08:00 AM It’s 9:00 on Monday morning. Do you know where your virtual machines are? If you don’t, you’re in for a long week. Sure, you know which cluster in the data center they reside on, and maybe you know which hosts they’re running on, but do you know how healthy they are? Do you know which ones have performance problems, which ones are costing you more CPU than they should and which ones have been changed recently? My team meets with a lot of virtualization administrators working in VMware, Hyper-V, OpenStack and other environments. They tell us that they always have more questions than answers ...
  • Opening the Door to OpenStack 25 February 2015, 05:00 PM In most discussions about enterprise private clouds, an OpenStack solution will be part of the mix. Some early success stories help make OpenStack appear to be a desirable and viable option. For example, a glance at the agenda for the April 21st OpenStack conference in Melbourne promises case studies showing how Time Warner Cable and GoDaddy leveraged OpenStack as an enterprise private cloud platform.   Dell, of course, can cite OpenStack successes such as deployments at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the National Institute of Informatics in Japan, and we have been using OpenSt...
