  • 1. 30 2014 Issue 02 | Dell.com/powersolutions Behind every start-up is a dreamer who pursues game-changing innovation through the power of an idea and unrelenting passion. By providing visionaries with access to the right technology, Dell helps ignite the same entrepreneurial spirit that propelled the company from its own humble roots. The success stories featured here have grown into household names, inspiring a new generation of beginnings. Think big Gilt: Fashion in a flash In just a few short years, Gilt went from being an open office where inventory hung on two rolling racks — and where Kevin Ryan and his co-founders did everything from coding to taping boxes — to becoming an overwhelming ecommerce success. Through daily flash sales, Gilt provides members with first-come, first-served access to top designer brands. Gilt created an inspiring way for millions to shop curated styles, goods and services, all at insider pricing. From the start, the online shopping site had to run perfectly for the experience to match the vision. Then and now, Dell technology has enabled consistent uptime, site security and quick response times. Dell servers provide the bandwidth, speed and agility to help Gilt fulfill its promise to customers: a fast, invigorating shopping experience. The Knot: Match made in heaven When David Liu and Carley Roney started planning their nuptials, they could not find a collective source of modern-day wedding guidance anywhere. After a hectic experience, they saw a niche in the market. Today their company, The Knot, is the internet’s most- trafficked wedding website and America’s leading wedding brand. The business reaches millions of engaged couples every year through its award-winning website, books, magazines and broadcast content offerings. The Knot looks to emerging technologies to improve the wedding planning process. Dell servers form the backbone of the site’s gift registry and ecommerce store, where millions of items are stored, shared and purchased every day. Dell technology has enabled The Knot to scale without losing the personal touch that has endeared it to fans.

  • 2. Dell.com/powersolutions | 2014 Issue 02 31 Whole Foods Market: Au naturel John Mackey, Renee Lawson Hardy, Craig Weller and Mark Skiles had an idea: that the world was ready for a natural foods supermarket. With a staff of 19 — and without a computer in sight — they opened the first Whole Foods Market in 1980. Since then, Whole Foods Market has become the world’s leading natural and organic food retailer. Providing the highest-quality local and organic produce as well as sustainably raised meat and seafood can be a complicated proposition. To stay efficient while continuing to grow, Whole Foods Market turns to Dell. From corporate headquarters to worldwide regional offices and stores, this fast-growing company powers its operations with Dell technology that helps it maintain a strong commitment to serving local communities. TripAdvisor: Out-of-this-world experience All Stephen Kaufer wanted to do was plan a trip to Mexico. However, searching the web for travel advice in 1999 was anything but simple. Born out of his frustration was the phenomenon that became TripAdvisor. Every month more than 260 million people visit TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel website. The site features more than 150 million reviews and opinions covering hotels, rentals, restaurants and attractions from around the world. Handling such a flood of traffic requires reliable servers, storage, databases and connectivity. So in 2010, TripAdvisor made Dell its strategic technology partner. Dell provides a full suite of client-experience solutions and custom-configured servers and databases that power the travel experiences of millions of consumers around the world.
