Data centre performance to the office
"Dell PowerEdge VRTX brings data centre performance and capabilities to the office environment, addressing the unique needs of customers operating remote or branch office environments," said Intel Datacentre marketing group's vice president, Lisa Graff.
"PowerEdge VRTX is an excellent example of Dell building innovative converged infrastructure solutions around Intel data centre building blocks," said Graff.
In addition, Dell Active Infrastructure 1.1 portfolio would help organisations to speed up the delivery of business applications and IT services: leading to improvements in data centre efficiency and service IT quality, said Dell Malaysia's Ong.
He said Dell was "introducing a fast, accurate way for customers to deploy common workloads, including key enterprise applications, virtual desktop and private cloud workloads."
Also included in Dell Malaysia's announcement were enhancements to Dell's unified management platform delivered through Active System Manager 7.1, which is the management layer for Active System that integrates IP from recently acquired Gale Technologies to automate workload and infrastructure deployment through a single console.
This helps customers to go from eight tools to one, Active System Manager 7.1 features deep virtual integration, including support for the Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere platforms, stateless computing for workload scaling and migrations, rapid infrastructure on-boarding for discovering assets, and a broad compatibility matrix that includes support for Dell and heterogeneous environments, according to a statement from Dell.
PowerEdge VRTX will be available in the coming weeks, while the Dell Active Infrastructure 1.1 portfolio will be available to order in the coming days.
