Dell Converged Infrastructure Solutions — Pre-integrated Systems

The traditional drill for scaling your infrastructure: design, procurement, deployment and testing consume months of your valuable time. And even then, the results often yield a mix of different architectures, creating interoperability and application performance issues that ultimately result in a higher-than-expected total cost of ownership.

Our pre-integrated Active Systems give you the benefit of Dell’s extensive enterprise experience and our joint engineering with leading virtualization providers. We leverage this expertise in packaged solutions that are pre-engineered, preassembled and pretested — and include on-site deployment services.

Active Systems allow you to deploy new data center platforms on a modular, just-in-time basis. You get a balanced system that includes the entire infrastructure required for complex applications, or a private cloud. And Active System offers the flexibility of different, scalable starting points so you can retain your existing data center fabric.

Each pre-integrated system is centrally managed by Active System Manager. This centralized management tool simplifies workload deployment and virtual infrastructure provisioning, while unifying hardware configuration capabilities. Active Systems accommodate multiple design points, and come preloaded with either VMware ESX- or Microsoft® Hyper-V-based virtualization.

Active System 1000
The Active System 1000 gives you a highly scalable blade-server based system for medium or large deployments, and offers advanced fiber channel storage. It is an ideal platform for large private clouds and mission-critical applications like Oracle, SAP and advanced databases.

Active System 800
The Active System 800 offers a scalable blade-server based system for medium or large deployments. It is an excellent choice for private clouds, and for larger deployments of virtual desktop, Microsoft SQL, Exchange, Lync and SharePoint applications.

Active System 200
The Active System 200 is a scalable rack-server-based system designed for smaller private clouds and more complex applications like virtual desktop, Microsoft SQL, Exchange, Lync and SharePoint. It also can be used as a disaster recovery platform for remote or branch offices.

Active System 50
The Active System 50 is our entry-level platform. It provides a simple, self-contained rack-server-based system ideal for small branch or remote offices, small businesses starting to adopt virtualization and small IT projects requiring data-center-caliber infrastructure.

Each Active System includes Dell deployment services to ensure quick time-to-value, and comes with three years of 24x7 Dell ProSupport. Support is centralized for the entire system so you can call a single number for platform wide support.
