With the euphoria of VMworld 2015 still fresh, we are pleased to announce that vBrainstorm will be at Dell World 2015 in Austin, Texas October 20-22. For the fourth year Dell has graciously extended invitations to members of the Dell TechCenter Rockstar community affording them the opportunity to attend with press/blogger credentials.
This will be my fourth time to attend and it has been interesting to watch the event grow and mature a little more each year, and become the launching point for Dell’s new hardware, software and service offerings. Last year the new FX2 blade platform and XC hyper-converged partnership with Nutanix were huge hits among attendees, while the DCS XA90 (spec sheet) seemed to slip in under the radar during a big data segment in a keynote.
For this year, I anticipate the usual announcements around 14th generation servers, updated desktops and laptops all making use of the latest CPU offerings Intel has released. Beyond this I hope that the fruits of being private for two years, and the ability to more readily integrate the technologies gained through acquisitions of the last decade, start to see the light of day. Dell has hinted at things, and shown NDA roadmaps, but now is the time to start delivering on the promise of moving faster without Wall Street breathing down their necks.
“The PowerEdgeVRTX is a shared infrastructure platform offering extensive performance and capacity with office-level acoustics in a single, compact tower chassis. It is an ideal solution for small and midsize businesses as well as remote and branch offices of large enterprises. The simple, efficient and versatile platform can be rapidly deployed to consolidate and manage business applications in two or three virtualized servers with shared storage and integrated networking.”
As you can see, this is a powerful product. I ask my self, is this the first step of many for Dell into a new Future? Will Dell tackle scale computing? We will have to wait to see. I for one, am looking forward to the next lineup of DellPowerEdge server releases.
