Dell Invests $1 Billion in Cloud Hosting Infrastructure

Dell today announced it is increasing its investments in new technology solutions and services that will help customers innovate and drive business results in the Virtual Era. In its current fiscal year, Dell will invest $1 billion (USD) to deliver leading solutions, services and cloud-based delivery options to help customers capture the benefits from new compute and information delivery advancements.

“Technology advances, delivery methods and the move to disruptive IT models like cloud are changing the fundamental way businesses operate,” said Steve Schuckenbrock, President, Dell Services. “With this transformational shift, businesses are gaining benefits in terms of speed to market and organizational and compute flexibility. Dell is mobilizing to help customers capture these benefits and with today’s announcement is making the power of the cloud accessible to more organizations and users. Dell has made and will continue to make significant investments to deliver technology that helps customers thrive in the Virtual Era.”

“While there is no doubt that abstraction and consolidation are inevitable realities in the technology industry, the notion of a ‘single-vendor stack’ is unsustainable,” said Matt Eastwood, group vice president of IDC’s Enterprise Platform Group. “As companies move to next-generation architectures, customers will want to ensure that they can seamlessly integrate legacy systems and new technologies. Even greenfield operations will want to ensure that their infrastructure can handle heterogeneity since the technology of today will be the legacy of tomorrow.”

Global Data Centers Expand Cloud Computing Capabilities
Over the next 24 months, Dell will build multiple highly efficient data centers around the world to provide its customers access to public and private cloud technologies and its world-class IT outsourcing capabilities. Bringing together Dell’s technology and services prowess with state-of-the-art capabilities from its partners, these new data centers will allow customers to take advantage of Infrastructure- and Virtual Desktop-as-a-Service offerings as well as IT outsourcing.
