Back on September 29th, Dell announced new capabilities and services to its Virtual Integrated System (VIS) architecture. A few days before VMworld I met with senior Dell representatives in San Francisco where they explained VIS and how well the overall architecture and combined Dell services have enabled their customers to heavily leverage virtual technologies. Dell customer Black Board attended this meeting providing testimonial on the implementation of the VIS architecture and that they are accelerating their ability to meet SLA’s and deliver compute capabilities that are enhancing their business growth. My last blog on Dell asked What Will Dell Do Now? in consideration of HP winning the bidding war for 3PAR. Now we know what Dell will do as they begin soaring ahead into the virtual era with VIS.
