For more than 25 years, Dell has empowered countries, communities, customers and people everywhere to use technology to realize their dreams. Customers trust Dell to deliver technology solutions that help them do and achieve more, whether they’re at home, work, school or anywhere in their world.
In the last five years Dell has developed an expansive portfolio of ‘owned’ technologies and intellectual property through careful acquisition of exciting start-ups, industry leading developers and service providers. This enables Dell to truly offer end-to-end solutions from the datacentre to the desktop.
When Dell acquired EqualLogic in for $1.4 billion in 2008 they were a relatively unknown provider of iSCSI storage systems. Their underlying principles of storage simplicity, extended lifecycle and a fully-inclusive licensing model were stand-out features in a market crowded with legacy architecture and restrictive, unpredictable vendor pricing.
Continued investment, innovation and development enabled Dell EqualLogic to become and remain the market leading iSCSI SAN solution.
Compellent were purchased by Dell in 2010. Sharing many of the same principles around lifecycle, cost reduction and scalability, they complemented the EqualLogic proposition and have helped Dell to deliver storage solutions to more, larger organisations.
Compellent’s unique ‘Fluid Data’ architecture is designed to automatically and intelligently optimize data everywhere, keeping your data as dynamic as the organization it supports by putting the right data in the right place at the right time. This ethos is being extended across the entire Dell storage stack, cementing their position in the top tier of vendors in this space.
IT organizations face significant challenges. The need to control costs, operate with less money and respond quickly to the needs of the business is fundamentally important to remain competitive in today’s global market. Yet, most organizations spend approximately 80 percent of their resources on operations and legacy systems management.
What if you could shift your focus from just keeping the lights on to innovation? What if you could harness technology to drive efficiency throughout your organization? Dell offers open, capable and affordable solutions to help you gain the IT agility and flexibility you need.
Recently established industry brands such as Force 10, Wyse, Sonicwall, Kace and Quest Software have been added to the ever growing Dell product family, cementing their role as a key provider to organisations of all sizes.
