Dell Launches VMware vCloud Datacenter Service

Dell entered the enterprise cloud market with the launch of a VMware vCloud Datacenter Service that provides a seamless multi-tenant environment for running virtual systems. Specifically, Dell and VMware will provide Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) choice for customer organizations, hosting and outsourcing firms, system integrators and service providers. The service is currently in beta testing.


This is the first public and hybrid cloud offering by Dell. The company will also offer consulting, application and infrastructure services to help companies migrate to the cloud. Dell noted that it has one of the largest install bases of VMware customers and data center customers, making its entrance into cloud services a natural fit.


Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Services includes several options for customers:


Public - Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service is an enterprise-class, secure offer of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IAAS) hosted in a secure Dell datacenter. This service provides access to vCPUs, memory, storage networks, IP addresses, firewalls, and catalog capabilities.


Private – Utilizing the same expertise, service and technology delivered in its own datacenters, Dell will build private clouds at either our customer's datacenter or Dell datacenters leveraging VMware offerings including VMware vSphere and VMware vCloud Director as well as Dell's vStart offering.


Hybrid - Dell and VMware provide a single source to substantially simplify the management of customers' physical and VMware vSphere-based virtual data center infrastructure adding flexibility to customer requirements. Utilizing VMware vCloud Connector, the hybrid cloud solution provides management of on- or off-premise private cloud and Dell's Public cloud offering.
