Computer solutions firm Dell said that its recently announced scalable converged infrastructure solutions, Dell PowerEdge VRTX and Dell Active Infrastructure 1.1 portfolio, would be available in Malaysia in the coming weeks.
Dell Malaysia general manager, commercial business, KT Ong said the new solutions such as the PowerEdge VRTX - 'Private Cloud in a Box' - would help reduce the cost and sprawl of disparate IT devices and multiple management tools, while the Active Infrastructure portfolio reduces time provisioning new workloads by about 99 percent.
"Dell's customer-inspired innovation is driven by our deep understanding of the business realities impacting customers' today, and interpreting those trends through delivery of modern IT architectures conceived and engineered for the needs of different businesses - one size does not fit all," said Ong.
"With the new solutions we have unveiled today, Dell is demonstrating its differentiated approach to solution development for customers of all sizes - from the small office of five people to large enterprise data centres," he said, adding that the company aimed to bring enterprise-level solutions to a broader range of customers.
He cited a recent IDC forecast that showed spending on converged systems would grow at a compound annual rate of more than 54 percent over the 2011-2016 forecast period, driven by the cost advantages and efficiency related to operations and management of IT, simplification of vendor engagement, and faster time to productivity with IT system updates.
Ong said the Dell PowerEdge VRTX, which has servers, storage, networking and management into a single compact chassis, would help to meet the need of rapidly growing remote/branch office (ROBO) or small and medium business (SMB) customers.
