Dell introduces new data centre solutions


29 August 2015

Dell has introduced Datacenter Scalable Solutions (DSS), a new line of business within Dell’s Enterprise Solutions organisation designed to meet the needs of web tech, telecommunications service providers, hosting companies, oil and gas, and research organisations.

According to Dell, these businesses often require specific technologies or deployment models to address their unique business challenges and application needs. For example, one company might have software requirements in order to better manage data and provide competitive insights. Another might choose to install a non-traditional operating system and another might need thousands of additional servers around the world by the end of the week to meet unplanned demand.

The company said it is addressing this segment of web tech, hosting companies, telecommunications service providers, oil and gas, and research organisations differently from others in the IT industry.

“While others in the IT industry have been focused on marketing hype or reducing capex costs only, we’ve created a new operating model that is centred around flexibility,” said Mak Chin Wah, general manager, Enterprise Solutions, South Asia, Dell.

According to Dell, besides supply chain optimisations and custom configurations, Dell DSS is also able to quickly build new system designs for this market. Dell will introduce its first DSS-branded products later this year.
