Building a future-ready IT environment

Emerging technology forces are leading companies to rethink traditional IT and their approach to creating, storing, moving and analyzing information. According to a recent study, 61% of organizations are running a mixture of traditional business and emerging applications[1]. To support this new IT business model, IT providers need to deliver flexible platforms that help customers manage high volume and high velocity data processing.

At Dell, we are focused on designing next-gen servers to help our customers achieve business outcomes. We build systems with three tenets in mind: accelerating application performance, empowering workloads everywhere, and simplifying systems management.

In fact, over 50% of IT decision-makers (ITDMs) see optimizing applications and performance to meet business objectives as more important than reducing expenditures[2]. By building flash-optimized storage technologies into our PowerEdge servers, businesses can successfully run data-intensive applications.

Also, most ITDMs want hardware solutions to optimize workloads through information from the server. Our PowerEdge servers include innovative management capabilities offering new levels of automation to remotely monitor and remediate data center situations.

Nearly half of ITDMs are looking to purchase systems that optimize existing workloads. Dell’s PowerEdge servers offer flexible platforms and to integrate both traditional and new IT applications that allow customers to meet unique business requirements.
