DELL introduces new software solutions to simplify IT and mitigate risks
Dec 24, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Dell has introduced the new Dell CIO Powerboard, Dell SonicWALL Security Portal, Dell KACE K3000 Mobile Management Appliance, and Dell PowerVault DL4000 software solutions, to help organizations simplify IT, mitigate risks, and accelerate business results.
Dell has unveiled Dell CIO Powerboard, a unified and open software interface that will allow organizations to maximize visibility and management across their preferred solution suites. In addition, the company is introducing a mobile management solution that helps organizations secure and simplify BYOD, a security portal to help organizations monitor network security threats, and a data recovery appliance to ensure organizations stay up and running amid unexpected outages.
Dell is announcing CIO Powerboard, an integration of its Dell Quest, KACE, SonicWALL and AppAssure solutions, all brought together by Dell Boomi. This proposition will enable CIOs, IT admins and Dell sellers and partners a simplified look across their IT environments, including the services and managed resources throughout the enterprise to drive improved business results.
CIOs need an end-to-end view of their organization's critical applications to leverage IT skills and drive total cost of ownership. IT admins need products with the ability to contribute context to the network events affecting productivity and Dell's sellers and partners need to understand how individual products in the portfolio come together to contribute to the overall solution. The new Dell CIO Powerboard will help organizations improve the integrity of data across their systems within the environment by creating a normalized view and source of truth.
CIO Powerboard will provide organizations with a unified view that includes the status of applications and user experience across multiple technologies associated with an IT service (e.g. Java, .Net, virtual or physical servers, databases, networks, etc.); networking elements across the IT environment; users and the PC assets and the software they are using to access an IT service; and the protection and backup of managed resources that comprise an IT service.
Through a set of simple integrated solutions that allow organizations to manage applications, systems, devices and data securely, Dell is delivering software solutions that help simplify IT, mitigate risk and ultimately help businesses accelerate results.
To help IT leaders stay current on the world of network security and the changing threat landscape, Dell Software is introducing the Dell SonicWALL Security Portal. The heart of the portal is the Security Education section, which contains product-neutral materials such as blogs, white papers, webinars, e-books and security-related games. Organizations can sharpen their knowledge of network security and anticipate potential threats with fresh information from Dell SonicWALL, customers, partners and industry experts.
Beyond education, the Dell SonicWALL Security Portal includes a Threat Center for an up-to-date view into the current landscape of malware, intrusions and application usage information transmitted from hundreds of thousands of sensors around the globe. Through the Threat Center, visitors can view data from around the world and create customized graphs to see a variety of telemetry data ranging from country of origin, threat type, top 10 attacks and much more.
Finally, the training & certifications section is where network administrators, security experts and Dell partners can access technical training curriculum to enhance their knowledge and maximize their investment in the Dell SonicWALL products and security applications.
Dell is helping IT teams manage the proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace with a limited release of Dell KACE's K3000 Mobile Management Appliance. IT infrastructure has become increasingly complex as more organizations face the demands of mobile workforces and bring your own device (BYOD) programs. The KACE K3000 makes it simple to support and secure corporate and personal mobile devices running iOS and Android operating systems with an on-premise mobile management appliance.
Dell is announcing the availability of the Dell PowerVault DL4000 appliance, powered by AppAssure software, which offers organizations a simple way to protect and ensure the availability of the data and applications in their growing IT environments. In case of an unexpected outage, organizations need to be able to quickly recover their applications and data to maintain business as usual.
The Dell DL4000 is a fully configured 1U backup appliance that integrates 5.5 terabytes of storage capacity and two standby virtual machines with Dell AppAssure snapshot, replication, deduplication, and compression software. The capacity of the Dell PowerVault DL4000 can be expanded beyond the existing 5.5 terabytes to provide up to 30 additional terabytes of capacity.
The DL4000 with AppAssure includes; live recovery that helps restore operations almost instantly, which helps organizations meet SLA objectives and can reduce risk of data loss; assured recovery that validates and verifies data and applications daily to ensure the backup file is completely recoverable; and AppAssure Scaling 5 architecture that takes advantage of high-performing, multi-core hardware to address data growth and offer near-instant RTOs and RPOs.
"Our acquisition, organic development and integration strategy has allowed us to make tremendous progress in delivering software solutions that bridge the gap between what businesses expect and what IT can deliver," said John Swainson, president of Dell Software. "The next frontier of innovation is in software, and our focus is on bringing that innovation to customers with software solutions that are easy to access and simple to deploy and manage."
