Today Dell announced significant new additions to its enterprise portfolio with data center and virtualization services, new product configurations, and a new PowerEdge server and EqualLogic storage array. At the core of these announcements is a drive towards even greater performance and efficiency in the data center.
On the virtualization front, Dell announced two business-ready product configurations to simplify the design, procurement and deployment of virtual enterprise infrastructures. Critical to optimizing virtual environments is the ability to support mixed IT environments, enabling enterprises to easily manage, optimize and protect all workloads in the data center. To make this happen, Dell turned to Novell and Platespin Migrate.
With broad support for Windows and Linux, as well as leading server hardware and hypervisor technologies, Platespin Migrate enables enterprises to profile, move, copy and replicate data, applications and operating systems across infrastructure boundaries to make physical and virtual environments work as one. Dell will ship Platespin Migrate with Dell PowerEdge M-series blades and EqualLogic PS6000 iSCSI storage technology, making the move to virtualization easier, quicker and more efficient.
