Expanding Dell's Active Infrastructure
Dell this week updated its Active Infrastructure portfolio of converged infrastructure solutions with the introduction of three new Active System solutions that combine server, storage and networking resources.
New to the line is the Dell Active System 50 (right) self-contained solution for smaller enterprises, the Dell Active System 200 rack-based solution form intermediate environments, and the Dell Active System 1000 (left) based on the Compellent Fibre Channel storage array.
Dell also introduced new validated workloads for its Active Infrastructure that leverage out-of-the-box and custom workload templates with validated reference architectures to reduce the time and steps to provision new workloads.
Also new is Active System Manager 7.1, the management layer for Active System that integrates IP Dell received with its acquisition of Gale Technologies. Active System Manager 7.1 supports both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere platforms, as well as stateless computing for workload scaling and migrations.
