Dell's Custom Cloud Servers Go Mainstream

In this video, Dell's Andy Rhodes discusses the Dell Data Center Solutions group's work custom-designing cloud servers and storage for huge customers. Those DCS designs have now been adapted for a new line of hyperscale servers.

For years, the Dell Data Center Solutions (DCS) team has developed customized computing solutions for some of the world’s largest cloud-service providers. "Custom designing for 30 accounts is labor intensive," said DCS marketing director Andy Rhodes. "We needed a more mainstream way of bringing the product to market." In March Dell announced a family of servers based on DCS' work optimizing servers for hyperscale environments. In this video, Rhodes discusses why the Data Center Solutions groups was formed, who it has traditionally served and how it is now expanding its customer base.
