Dell enters autonomous infrastructure market with PowerOne


Dell EMC PowerOne autonomous infrastructure combines various families from the Dell portfolio with an intelligence engine to automate previously manual operations.

PowerOne integrates PowerEdge MX compute, PowerMax storage, PowerSwitch networking and VMware virtualisation.

It "automates IT so customers can focus less on managing technology and more on benefiting from it,” said Dell Technologies infrastructure solutions group president Jeff Boudreau.

The PowerOne Controller's automation engine allows administrators to state a desired business outcome, and then the system calculates the best way to do the rest, the company claimed.

It uses Kubernetes and Ansible to automate component configuration and provisioning.

A single system-level API lets users create business objective-specific resource pools. The API is accessible from tools such as service portals, so organisations can, for example, create workload-ready VMware clusters with just a few clicks.

PowerOne can also take advantage of Dell EMC PowerProtect data protection products.

Dell Technologies Services offers advisory, deployment, migration and support services for PowerOne.

Dell EMC PowerOne is offered through the Dell Technologies on Demand program, which allows customers to pay only for what they use when they use it, moving IT infrastructure spending from capex to opex.

"Flexible consumption models across the full Dell Technologies portfolio will help Australian and New Zealand businesses overcome their biggest digital transformation barriers," said Dell Technologies senior director of technology ANZ Danny Elmarji.

"Financing big projects is a risk to business decision makers, so consumption-based models with financing options give IT leaders the support to progress large-scale technology projects. As the ANZ cloud market matures, we continue to work with local business leaders to finetune the multi-cloud strategy they need for success.

"Our customers want the cloud’s flexibility with the performance and predictability of on-premises infrastructure. Dell EMC PowerOne, the autonomous infrastructure solution we also announced today, makes it easier for IT teams to maintain their infrastructure while they focus on technology innovation that will keep their business competitive."

 Dell EMC PowerOne will be available from 22 November 2019.
