Cyxtera, a global leader in data centre colocation and interconnection services, has announced a strategic collaboration with Dell Technologies to deliver Dell’s infrastructure, combined with Cyxtera’s colocation and network technologies, that will accelerate the infrastructure deployments of their customers.
Leveraging Cyxtera’s global footprint of colocation facilities and Digital Exchange network fabric, Cyxtera and Dell will provide global enterprises of all sizes – as well as federal, state and local government organisations – with full stack Infrastructure-as-a-Service. This includes compute infrastructure, network connectivity and colocation space and power at the individual server and rack unit levels. These capabilities enable a cloud-like experience for the deployment of workloads that require the control, performance and security of dedicated infrastructure and colocation.
Customers will be able to leverage Dell infrastructure through Cyxtera’s Enterprise Bare Metal solution, an on-demand model that provides all the benefits of dedicated colocation and network infrastructure, resulting in an extension of their existing environments without the burden of capital expenditures, lengthy implementation cycles, or depreciating assets.
Additionally, customers will be able to test the capabilities offered by Dell and Cyxtera via Cyxtera’s Dell Experience Lab, which is powered by Cyxtera’s Digital Exchange platform. With infrastructure provided by Dell – and space, power and network fabric provided by Cyxtera – the lab will give customers a hands-on experience that demonstrates how the technology would work in their environment.
“Dell is committed to providing our partners with greater choice and flexibility to support customers with a consistent experience wherever they want to consume Dell infrastructure solutions,” said Denise Millard, Senior Vice President, Global Alliances for Dell. “Our collaboration with Cyxtera simplifies data centre challenges, providing customers with rapid deployment options, seamless scalability, high levels of physical security and optimised performance so they can deliver better business outcomes.”
Dell will also combine its solutions with Cyxtera SmartCabs which delivers point-and-click provisioning of dedicated, on-demand colocation cabinets. Cyxtera SmartCabs offers built-in power and network connectivity, as well as access to Cyxtera’s Digital Exchange network fabric, to quickly provide the compute resources and connectivity customers need.Click below to share this article
