Datacenter Scalable Solutions (DSS), has been created within the organisation designed to meet the specific needs of web tech, telecommunications service providers, hosting companies, oil and gas, and research organisations. These businesses often have high-volume technology needs and supply chain requirements in order to deliver business innovation. With a new operating model built on agile, scalable, and repeatable processes, the company said it can now uniquely provide this set of customers with the technology they need, purposefully designed to their specifications, and delivered when they want it.
“Dell was the first major server vendor that recognised the unique requirements of the hyperscale market when it introduced DCS in 2007. They are now taking the best practices and learnings from their DCS business and addressing the distinct needs of the space just below the top tier hyperscalers,” said Matt Eastwood, Senior Vice President, IDC. “As a private company, Dell continues to make long-term strategic customer centric investments and they are proving their new operating model is dynamic, thoughtful and unique in the industry.”
Web tech, hosting companies, telecommunications service providers, oil and gas, and research organisations 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. With a fast and nimble operating model that builds on the vendor’s deep experience in understanding customers’ challenges, Dell DSS is able to meet these high-volume needs and create differentiated and optimised offerings for customers.
“Dell Datacenter Scalable Solutions is a prime example of how Dell, as a private company, is able to be more nimble, make faster decisions and – most importantly – drive innovation on behalf of its customers,” said Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, Vice President and General Manager, Server Solutions, Dell. “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. DSS is about understanding customers’ goals and enabling them to achieve those objectives by giving them purpose-built solutions that are designed when and how they want it.”
The company will introduce its first DSS-branded products later this fall. Dell DSS has also partnered closely with Dell Financial Services to further enable and enrich the customer experience.
