Michael Dell, the founder and chief executive of Dell, has outlined the company’s datacentre and cloud strategies which are dictated by four customer imperatives – transform, connect, inform and protect.
At its Solutions Summit in Brussels on 18 September, Dell said the company is steering its efforts to enable customers to deal with IT challenges around security, software-defined infrastructures, big data analytics and the internet of things (IoT).The transform imperative is all about the vision of a future-ready, software-defined datacentre and about moving to the cloud, he said.
Dell pledged that the company can help customers build their next generation datacentre with its wide range of industry partnerships and platform-agnostic strategies.
“We have no legacy architecture to protect, so we are all about new ways of doing things – microprocessor-based, cloud-based infrastructures,” he said.
Supplier lock-in is a huge issue, particularly for customers looking to see the best return from their IT budget, and Dell wants to offer a flexible system for their needs, explained Dell enterprise vice-president Tony Parkinson.“We have been in the server business for about 20 years and our newest, 13th-generation PowerEdge server family is inspired by customers’ needs,” said Dell.
