Dell Tech Shorts: Quick tips from Dell engineers and experts

VMWorld is in full swing this week at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and lots of Dell folks are on the floor, meeting and greeting customers and partners, and demonstrating some of our key virtualization solutions at the booths.

To complement the event, we have launched a series of videos called “Dell Tech Shorts” in which we talk to subject matter experts about a variety of topics. Here are four produced by Lani Dame (Converged Infrastructure social media) and myself that you may be interested in:


Bala Chandrasekaran is the lead engineer at Dell for virtualization solutions. In this short video, Bala walks us through some of the ways in which the management tools in vStart give our  customers better visibility into the server, storage and networking components.

PowerEdge 12th Generation Blades

In this video, Chris Christian, with Dell’s Enterprise Product Group, discusses the unique benefits in density, power and performance that 12th generation PowerEdge blades offer VMware customers. He highlights the M420 blade, the world’s first quarter-height blade server.

Converged Blade Data Center

Aaron Prince, product manager for the Converged Blade Data Center solution, tells Lani how this exciting new solution offers density not just at the server level, but for networking and storage as well.

Dell Management Plug-in for VMware vCenter

And finally, here’s a video featuring Manoj Gujarathi, sharing some of the key benefits of the Dell Management Plug-in for VMware vCenter, which makes updating the BIOS and firmware easier and more manageable.

Look for more “Tech Shorts” in the future, and share with us in the comments what you would be interested in learning about. We’d love to hear from you!
