Dell Active Infrastructure
Data center convergence designed by Dell, delivered by partners
IT organizations are rapidly adopting converged infrastructure solutions to lower operating costs, speed up deployments, and drive simplicity. However, most solutions are either incomplete and proprietary or complex and expensive.
Dell's approach to convergence lets you provide advanced data center infrastructure platforms that are agile, efficient and high quality. Dell Active Infrastructure accelerates the delivery of IT services with a workload-optimized, automated and integrated infrastructure. It gives your customers an open and heterogeneous architecture, template-based automation and end-to-end support. This not only greatly reduces their time-to-value; it also lowers their costs. Dell Active Infrastructure solutions and systems empower your customers to respond rapidly to dynamic business needs, maximize efficiency and strengthen IT service quality.
