Dell Active Infrastructure: Eliminating Complexity in Infrastructure, Operations, Applications and Service Delivery

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets has announced the addition of the Dell Active Infrastructure: Eliminating Complexity in Infrastructure, Operations, Applications and Service Delivery report to their offering.

Dell has invested $10 billion over the previous four years to evolve from a hardware provider to a vendor of end-to-end enterprise IT solutions, consisting of hardware, software and services. Strategic acquisitions of enterprise software houses, such as Quest Software, AppAssure and Gale Technologies, underline Dell's ambition to compete with the Big 4 - IBM, BMC, CA Technologies and HP - on their own turf.

Dell's new Active System product line consists of pre-integrated server, network, storage and management components and can be tuned for specific application workloads, such as desktop virtualization, email, content management, CRM or ERP. Dell Active System constitutes the company's take on converged infrastructure, aimed at improving operational efficiency and agility, which are two of the key customer goals of cloud. Michael Dell eloquently summed up the key value of Active Systems, stating that Dell's mission is to help customers move away from worrying about CPUs, memory, LUNs, and switches. Dell now aims at assisting customers at making the transformation toward managing workloads, SLAs, and policies, instead of individual datacenter resources.

In today's world of constantly tightening IT budgets and CFOs repeating the "do more with less mantra," the allocation of IT resources is a zero sum game. The time IT staff requires to "keep the lights on" cannot be spent on creating innovative solutions to better support the business. Dell Active System aims at minimizing these operational worries, by simplifying and automating traditionally tedious server, network and storage provisioning and management tasks. With the release of Dell Active System Manager 7 (ASM 7) and Active System 800, the company now enables customers to simplify management at the infrastructure, operations, application and service level.
