Dell today introduced Datacenter Scalable Solutions (DSS), a new line of business within Dell’s Enterprise Solutions organization designed to meet the specific needs of web tech, telecommunications service providers, hosting companies, oil and gas, and research organizations. These businesses often have high-volume technology needs and supply chain requirements in order to deliver business innovation. With a new operating model built on agile, scalable, and repeatable processes, Dell can now uniquely provide this set of customers with the technology they need, purposefully designed to their specifications, and delivered when they want it.
Dell was a pioneer in the hyperscale market segment nearly eight years ago when it created Data Center Solutions (DCS) to design and build solutions tailored for massive-scale datacenter environments. DCS continues to serve the hyperscale market with fully custom and tailored solutions. Today, there’s a growing market of businesses just below the hyperscale space in size that are increasingly expressing similar needs in how they buy and build datacenter capabilities. This segment is growing three times faster than the traditional x86 server market and represents a $6 billion total addressable market(1).
Dell addresses this segment of web tech, hosting companies, telecommunications service providers, oil and gas, and research organizations differently from others in the IT industry. With a new operating model that leverages the high quality and stability of Dell’s enterprise and DCS portfolio, along with its global support and supply chain capabilities, Dell DSS is able to design optimized solutions to meet customers’ precise needs.
“Dell was the first major server vendor that recognized the unique requirements of the hyperscale market when it introduced DCS in 2007. They are now taking the best practices and learnings from their DCS business and addressing the distinct needs of the space just below the top tier hyperscalers,” said Matt Eastwood, senior vice president, IDC. “As a private company, Dell continues to make long-term strategic customer centric investments and they are proving their new operating model is dynamic, thoughtful and unique in the industry.”
