Dell VMware Integration ‘Mandate’: Be ‘First And Best’

‘The mandate we were given from [Dell Technologies CEO] Michael Dell, [Vice Chairman, Products and Operations, Dell EMC] Jeff Clarke and [VMware CEO] Pat Gelsinger is, ‘When we do things with VMware and Dell EMC, we want it to be first and best no matter what we do,’” says Chad Dunn, vice president of hyper-converged infrastructure product management for Dell EMC.

 The Dell VMware Integration ‘Mandate’

VMware Cloud Foundation becoming available on Dell EMC’s leading hyper-converged infrastructure VxRail offering is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Dell EMC-VMware integration ahead, according to Chad Dunn, vice president of hyper-converged infrastructure product management for Dell EMC.

“The mandate we were given from [Dell Technologies CEO] Michael Dell, [Vice Chairman, Products and Operations, Dell EMC] Jeff Clarke and [VMware CEO] Pat Gelsinger is, ‘When we do things with VMware and Dell EMC, we want it to be first and best no matter what we do,’” said Dunn in an interview with CRN.

“What we heard from Michael, Jeff and Pat and the rest of the strategically aligned businesses is, ‘We want to do more like VxRail. And we want to do it deeper and more broadly across companies,’” said Dunn. “So when they say, ‘Go collaborate and make this happen’ – it’s really not just lip service.”

He said Dell EMC and VMware, which both fall under the Dell Technologies family of businesses, will drive technology integration even further to separate themselves from not only their hyper-converged competitors, but across various market segments. Dunn talks to CRN about VMware’s integration road map and Dell’s technology differentiation compared with Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Nutanix.
