Commitment to Joint Innovation

Take a closer look at how Dell Technologies and VMware are moving forward together.

The world is constantly changing, driven by science and technology. And while we continue to update our operating systems and smartphones, one thing that hasn’t changed is the partnership between Dell Technologies and VMware. We are grounded in collaboration, joint engineering, and committed to providing unique value to our shared customers.

Building upon decades of innovation and technical achievement, Dell Technologies and VMware have consistently moved toward a joint vision to deliver next-generation integrated IT platforms and multi-cloud solutions that accelerate digital transformation. Today, we are looking ahead to new opportunities to ensure our customers get the best of what both companies can offer.

Working Together to Shape Tomorrow

This past year, Dell Technologies and VMware worked tirelessly to enable people to learn and work from anywhere, ensuring seamless productivity and secure infrastructure. Now, with APEX Cloud Services with VMware Cloud, customers can expand flexibility and security across multi-cloud environments with new Infrastructure-as-a-Service offers powered by VMware Cloud. This solution enables customers to manage their business instead of their infrastructure.

Built for VMware, with VMware, Dell VxRail delivers a turnkey experience that allows customers to deploy a hybrid cloud or create a developer-ready Kubernetes platform. We will continue to build out use cases for multi-, private, and hybrid clouds and VMware Tanzu for software developers and DevOps.

Finally, security is fundamental to everything we do. It is not a product, tool, or bundle but a core strategy for success. Dell Technologies and VMware offer leading solutions to protect and preserve your business from endpoint to infrastructure, providing complete peace of mind.

Accelerating the Pace of Innovation

Our customers need us to move faster than ever to support organizational imperatives in today’s hypercompetitive and ever-changing business environment. Together, Dell Technologies and VMware have produced over 30,000+ combined patents, with ground-breaking solutions at an unprecedented rate. Some of these include:

    • NVMe IP SAN enables servers and storage to discover each other more quickly, lowers storage interconnect costs and improves performance for VMWare workloads.
    • SmartNIC increases application performance and reduces data center footprint by offloading VMware from the main CPU.
    • ObjectScale, object storage software designed for Kubernetes, integrates into VMware vSphere to support S3 object storage, reduces IT complexity, and improves developer productivity.
    • Dell Unified Workspace provides a comprehensive solution to deploy, secure, manage and support devices from the cloud. VMware Workspace One delivers a secure and flexible “work from anywhere” environment.

In addition to these advances, we released the Dell Technologies Validated Design for AI, providing a reference architecture model for delivering new insights and AI from virtualized applications.

Individually Strong, Powerful Together

Our commitment to meeting customer needs extends to a unique commercial agreement preserving the most valuable parts of our relationship while allowing the strategic flexibility of an open ecosystem for both companies.

As we look ahead, Dell Technologies and VMware will continue to align our joint solutions and strength in partnership to ensure our customers get the best of what both companies can offer.
