Dell Technologies has launched a raft of new Internet of Things (IoT) solutions at VMworld, with the promise that they will 'automate powerful, actionable insights'.
Released through its new Edge and IoT Solutions Division, the solutions and bundles will simplify deployment of secure, scalable solutions for edge computing and IoT use cases.
With these solutions, Dell Technologies is combining tools from its broad portfolio with technology from Intel and partners in the Dell Technologies IoT Solutions Partner Program.
"Workloads and use cases for computer vision and machine intelligence require different combinations of tools, but the computing infrastructure elements are the same," said Joyce Mullen, president, Global Channel, OEM and IOT Solutions at Dell Technologies. "Dell Technologies provides a scalable, secure, manageable and open infrastructure- spanning edge to cloud - so customers and partners can realise value today and build a foundation to support these workloads and case studies in the future."
Carrie MacGillivray, Group Vice President, IoT and Mobility, IDC, added: "Organisations are looking to integrated IoT solutions that bring together the storage, security, network and management and orchestration.
"Companies need to find a partner that understands these requirements and can help provide the piece parts to build out a holistic solution. Dell Technologies’ holistic portfolio of key IoT solutions and go-to-market options make them a solid partner for your IoT journey."
One live example of Dell Technologies' work is the IoT Solution for Surveillance, which will become available later this year.
