American privately owned multinational computer technology company, Dell has recently introduced a series of new enterprise appliances and integrated systems to drive simplicity and ease of use across the data centre, and help customers achieve quicker business insights and agility.
The introduction of new engineered solutions from Dell represent the next step in the company's ongoing efforts to help businesses of all sizes realize greater returns on their investments in enterprise applications, and accelerate value from their technology.
The new workload-specific infrastructure appliances and integrated systems are expected to dramatically speed deployment, management and time to results for companies of all sizes.
Dell is teaming up with leading enterprise software companies to integrate and optimize Dell infrastructure and management capabilities, with some of the most widely deployed applications and workloads in enterprises today.
Dell is moving quickly to deliver appliances to accelerate the value customers get from their technology by simplifying the deployment and management of large-scale enterprise applications, while at the same time ensuring best-in-class performance, response times, and insights to critical business data.
"Dell is focused on making it easier for businesses to solve their IT challenges so they can spend more time thinking about their customers and less on operations.
"We do this in part by helping businesses quickly, reliably and cost-effectively stand up tier-1 applications, and the appliances and integrated systems announced today help accelerate the value customers can get from their technology,"
"The new solutions we announced a joint partnership with
"Dell Acceleration Appliance for Databases combines industry-leading Dell servers and proven Fusion-io flash memory to maximise data-intensive application performance," Fusion-io CEO and Chairman of the Board Shane Robison, said.
"Our technology collaboration enables enterprises to gain business insight from real time information by improving application performance and shortening application response times, ultimately increasing competitive advantage."
"Data systems of the '80s and '90s were never designed for what is known as big data. It's not that the world was never data-driven before - it's that we are amassing more data today than systems are able to consume,"
In a recent report industry analyst firm IDC noted, the integrated systems and appliances market is one of the fastest-growing segments of the IT industry.
As enterprises look to simplify and streamline IT capabilities, they will turn more and more toward these solution sets to help reduce the burden on their IT departments and provide a better SLA to their corporate users. Vendors will continue to develop more sophisticated tools to manage these stacks more efficiently and integrate more software packages for customers to choose from. In addition, they will continue to partner with one another to help bring these solution sets to fruition.

The solution represents a unique collaboration within the big data ecosystem to collectively deliver a solution that no single vendor can provide.
The Dell In-Memory Appliances for Cloudera Enterprise simplify and speed up otherwise complex Hadoop cluster deployments, enabling customers to gain critical business insights faster. It is also massively scalable, using an enterprise data hub to store and analyse any amount or type of data in its original form and for as long as desired or required.
This ease of deployment and scalability meet the needs of small and medium businesses, all the way up to the largest enterprises.
It includes leading Dell hardware, Cloudera Enterprise (Data Hub Edition including Apache Spark) for easier management and compatibility within existing data centre environments, Intel Architecture for fast processing, and ScaleMP's Versatile SMP (vSMP) architecture to aggregate multiple x86 servers into a single virtual machine to create large memory pools for in-memory processing.
The Dell In-Memory Appliances for Cloudera Enterprise will be available in pre-sized, pre-configured options so customers can choose and quickly deploy the version that is right for their deployment.
Dell today also announced plans to deliver the Dell XC Series of Web-scale Converged Appliances powered by Nutanix.
