ONE MILLION: Dell Data Center Solutions (DCS) Ships Millionth Server
The Data Center Solutions group (aka DCS) officially shipped their millionth cloud server!
As the director of DCS marketing, Drew Schulke, pointed out, DCS’s influence is all around you – “If you used a search engine, updated your status via social media, or generated a map on the internet to get from ‘point A’ to ‘point B’ today, there is a good chance that a DCS server made that possible.” (You can read Drew’s entire blog here.)
As many of you know, I lead a team of product managers and strategists on the Dell Revolutionary Cloud and Big Data team, who focus on areas such as OpenStack and Hadoop, who deliver the Dell Crowbar software framework, and lead the Crowbar open source community.
So what does DCS have to do with our OpenStack / Hadoop / Crowbar team?
Actually quite a bit.
DCS set out to meet the needs of the hyperscale customer, and as it turns out, most of those customers are looking at cutting edge technology trends like OpenStack, Hadoop, and open source toolsets.
In fact, our solutions feature PowerEdge C servers, the density optimized server line that was born out of the work done by DCS, and are being run by our solutions customers on a regular basis as they stand up cloud and big data environments.
So by pulling together integrated HW+SW+Services solutions around OpenStack and Hadoop, leveraging innovative Dell IP like Crowbar and the unique advancements coming out of the DCS group, we’re able to make our customers even more successful – which is what its all about.
It’s a great milestone for the innovative DCS team – join me in celebrating this momentus milestone!
Until next time,
