    Dell OpenStack-Powered Cloud Solution


    Learn about Dell OpenStack-Powered Cloud, an easy-to-implement open source infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud solution that delivers automated, flexible, massively scalable cloud computing.

What is cloud computing? The strategy behind the technology

A cohesive cloud strategy that drives successful business outcomes relies on collaboration between IT staff and executives. Just as IT cannot act as a silo within the business, cloud computing cannot function as a silo within IT.

Other cloud providers’ proprietary technologies require that you adjust your IT environment to their capabilities. A long-term strategy demands an infrastructure that is open and can adapt as your business and IT priorities change.

Dell’s approach to designing and implementing an open cloud strategy focuses on business and cultural expectations. We believe:

  • Cloud computing is not a technology, it's a strategy. Cloud computing is part of an overall strategy to accelerate growth, empower your workforce and transform your business. We are committed to developing solutions that match your business vision and that drive it forward with maximum flexibility and minimum risk.

  • Cloud computing should adapt to you, not you to it. Most businesses are already on the cloud journey, but each has unique needs and obstacles. We work with you and your staff to match your strategy to the right cloud solutions — without disrupting your business.

  • Cloud computing works best when it integrates seamlessly. Our approach is not to rip and replace, but rather to make use of existing investments and build from the current state. We see cloud computing as a logical progression to what organizations are already doing, and a way for businesses to build on technologies and processes already in place.
