Assess Your Needs

What's Your Challenge?

Every business is different and every data center has different issues that need to be resolved. Dell has services and solutions that will help you gain capacity, operate more efficiently, reduce the risk of events and keep control. These services and solutions are designed to help you:

  • Gain capacity in your data center by reducing data proliferation and server sprawl
  • Manage the costs of your power and cooling infrastructure for greater efficiency
  • Consolidate and virtualize to maximize performance
  • Right-size to optimize the efficiency of your hardware

To gain capacity and increase the efficiency of your data center, consider a Data Center Environment Assessment (DCEA) service from Dell Professional Services (DPS). This service evaluates your existing data center to help determine if the appropriate cooling and power infrastructure has been allocated to support rack-dense computing.
