Applications for data centre and cloud client computing were launched in collaboration with VMWare.
Dell has launched a new portfolio of cloud and virtualisation applications including data centre and cloud client computing applications as part of the firm’s collaboration with VMWare.
Dell Networking added the new S6000 switching platform for data centres, which incorporates virtualisation and automation features.
The computer technology firm claims that the new S6000 platform offers two times more density and throughput while consuming up to 50% less power than its successors.
S6000 will also support the latest network virtualisation and software-defined networking features such as hardware-accelerated L2 Gateway functionality for deployment with VMware NSX, linking traffic between virtualised and non-virtualised environments.
In addition to S6000, Dell has also introduced Fault Resilient Memory, which is developed in collaboration with VMware.
Dell Global Alliances, Partners and Marketing Innovation vice president Russ Fujioka said that virtualisation and cloud computing are pushing customers to find solutions that are fast to deploy, easy to manage and optimised for performance.
"With Dell’s new customer-inspired solutions unveiled today, Dell is demonstrating how we’re at the forefront of delivering innovative cloud and vitalisation solutions that combine leading solutions from VMware and Dell," Fujioka said.
The technology would enable Dell PowerEdge 12 generation server customers using VMware vSphere 5.5 version to exploit existing server memory while boosting security for the hypervisor against memory errors.
Dell has also launched Storage integrations with VMware vSphere 5.5 and OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter, while has also updated its Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) On Demand, which is its cloud-based virtual desktop offering.
Also at the launch, Dell Software debuted new Foglight Virtualisation Operations Management suite, which assists in boosting the efficiency of IT staff, while reducing cut operational costs by cutting complexity of the available infrastructure.
