Dell’s Analytical Consulting Engine (ACE) is becoming generally available on VxRail this month for partners to sell. ACE provides the ability to dynamically gather a richer set of data from VxRail clusters, translating that data into a centralized data collection and analytics platform to help customers make better decisions.
“This is going to give our customers a view of their whole VxRail state -- proactive health scoring and predictive analytics in terms of anomaly detection and capacity planning,” said Dunn. “One of the interesting things we saw when we made this available for early access, is that we saw more partners access this than we saw customers. There’s an opportunity out there for partners who want to be able to understand what the health and capacity initialization of their customers’ environments are so they can help them make more informed decisions.”
With VxRail ACE, customers get an enhanced management experience with global views of all their clusters, health scores, analytics, anomaly alerts, predictive capacity analysis and upgrade orchestration.
“This gives partners the ability to understand when a customer is going to run out of capacity, where they can achieve better performance, and gives partners greater insight to their customers environments,” said Dunn.
