Preparing for the future while accelerating business today – it’s Fluid Forward

Dell Storage Forum - Fluid Forward

There was a time when all you really needed to do with data was manage it. Today, data is the fuel on which your company runs. You need a storage solution with the future built in – a solution that will move your business forward.

This is a theme you’ll see reflected at our upcoming Dell Storage Forum events in Paris (Nov. 14-16, 2012) and San Jose (June 4-6, 2013) – using our Fluid Data architecture as the foundation, we are integrating innovative technologies to deliver end-to-end storage solutions that prepare our customers for the future. It’s Fluid Forward.

From virtualization to convergence to cloud, the Fluid Data architecture is at the core of everything we do in Dell storage – and its built on what our customers want. Customers like Safeway Insurance Co., the largest privately held, family-owned insurance company in the U.S. The company was losing potential sales to performance issues with its legacy storage. By implementing a virtualized infrastructure with Dell EqualLogic and PowerVault storage, PowerEdge servers, and KACE management appliances, Safeway has reduced its storage footprint by 60 percent, while supporting 71 percent more agents with no increase in IT staff. Now they have an infrastructure that can scale to meet future demands.

Storage that prepares you for the future, while accelerating your business today? That’s Fluid Forward.

The best place to learn more about the Fluid Data architecture and what it means to be Fluid Forward is Dell Storage Forum. It’s a unique opportunity to gain actionable insights through technical breakouts, hand-on labs, executive keynotes, roadmap sessions and demos of the latest products. Unlike other industry events, you’ll get open access to Dell experts and executives in an environment focused on helping you maximize your storage investment and accelerate business outcomes.
