At VMworld 2011 in Las Vegas, Dell will highlight Dell | VMware solutions
portfolios that epitomize the Power to Do More: End User to Cloud. Dell’s focus
will highlight the agility, efficiency and fluidity of Dell’s virtualization
solutions stack. Attendees can engage in conversations with Dell subject matter
experts in Booths 901 and 911 as well as learn the details in our break-out
sessions. If you cannot attend VMworld 2011, you can still follow the Dell
discussions and engagements at Dell at
VMworld
. Dell solutions through a close partnership and engineering
relationship with VMware address customer needs in end-user computing, data
center virtualization and storage with intelligent data management environments.
Ultimately, this provides the foundation for cloud-based delivery.

  • Agile. Dell
    Virtual Integrated System
    (VIS) provides the ability to rapidly provision
    resources, ease virtualization deployment, streamline network configuration and
    create policy based automation to deploy & manage resources in VMware
    environments. Dell VIS consists of Dell
    Advanced Infrastructure Manager
    (AIM) and Dell
    Self-Service Creator
    (SSC).
  • Efficient. Dell vStart
    provides a fully configured and ready to deploy racked configuration running
    VMware vSphere. This allows quick and efficient addition of virtualization
    infrastructure into a data center. The best practices are already implemented in
    the racked solution stack. Next, with the Dell
    Management Plug-in for VMware vCenter
    (DMPVV), an IT admin can quickly check
    hardware inventory details, perform bare metal deployments, get cluster level
    view of Dell servers, receive alerts, pull online warranty info and update
    firmware and BIOS from the VMware vCenter user interface. Best of all, the DMPVV
    is free to try before you buy
    .
  • Fluid. Dell Storage defines
    fluidity with the Dell | PowerVault
    MD
    , EqualLogic
    and Compellent
    storage arrays. Dell’s intelligent data management solutions provide enterprise
    class features with ease of use & deployment for deploying in VMware
    virtualization environments. Dell Storage does this through Host Integration
    Tools for VMware that provide virtual appliances, vCenter integration &
    tools to manage the datastore, snapshots and deployment. Dell Storage integrates
    with VMware’s vStorage APIs to provide customers a seamless experience with Dell
    and VMware technologies.

All of these components combine to connect the end user to the cloud with
Dell and VMware.
