Dell Cloud Solutions

One billion people: That’s how many are connecting through cloud solutions from Dell. In fact, Dell has help build some of the largest public clouds in the world for companies whose names you hear every day. Now they've turned that experience to helping you.

Dell offers consulting, cloud computing components and turnkey solutions based on pretested, preassembled, fully-supported hardware, software and services. Along with cloud reference architectures, Dell’s solutions enable you to deploy and manage private, public or hybrid cloud infrastructures quickly, easily and successfully – without locking you into a single vendor and often without replacing existing IT hardware.

Reference Architecture


Intel Cloud Builders reference architectures are proven cloud-building recipes and guidance to make it easier to deploy and optimize your cloud computing infrastructure. The guides are intended for cloud service providers, enterprise IT administrators, and security administrators who are responsible for the design, deployment, and validation of cloud infrastructures, both public and private.

Intel® Cloud Builders Guide: Dell* OpenManage* Power Center
Built on the Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 Product Family

Enterprise data center efficiency has become a central focal point for many industry leaders and all facets of the data center are being scrutinized for efficiency modeling. Components across the data center infrastructure are becoming more power efficient and offering data collection points to give administrators more control of their enterprise environments. The goal of energy management usage models is to optimize productivity per watt in order to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO). Requirements include the capability to monitor and cap power in real-time at server, rack, zone, and data center levels. This means the ability to monitor and manage aggregated power consumption within a rack, zone, or data center based on available power and cooling resources.

This reference architecture outlines the usage of energy management and thermal technologies as part of planning, provisioning, and optimizing strategies in enterprise and cloud data centers to reduce energy cost and address constrained power situations. The reader should be able to develop appropriate energy management solutions based on the design options presented using Dell* OpenManage* Power Center and Dell PowerEdge* R-series servers implementing Intel® Power Management technologies.

Data Center Energy Management with Dell, Intel, and JouleX
Built on the new Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 Product Family

This reference architecture provides an overview of the usage of energy management technologies as part of planning, provisioning and optimizing strategies in cloud data centers to reduce energy cost and to address carbon emissions for green IT goals. Utilizing JouleX Energy Management Solution and Dell PowerEdge® C-Series Servers implementing Intel® Power Management technologies, the guide provides an outline of how to develop these energy management solutions. It is intended for data center administrators and enterprise IT professionals who seek energy management solutions to achieve better energy efficiency and power capacity utilization within new or existing datacenters.

Enhancing Cloud Platform Security with Enomaly ECP* HAE and Dell PowerEdge* Servers

This Intel Cloud Builders reference architecture describes a cloud environment which offers significant protection to offset security risks. The guide outlines a private cloud setup based on the Enomaly Elastic Computing Platform High Assurance Edition (ECP HAE) running on Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series-based Dell PowerEdge® R710 servers with support for Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT). Utilizing this reference architecture, which includes detailed scripts and screen shots, should help reduce the learning curve for building and operating your first cloud computing infrastructure.

Policy-Based Power Management with Dell and VMware

The goal of policy power management is to optimize productivity per watt in order to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO); requirements include the capability to monitor and cap power in real time at server, rack, and data center levels. Utilizing VMware vSphere, Dell PowerEdge servers with Intel® Xeon® processors, this reference architecture provides a detailed guide to develop more sophisticated power management solutions for their cloud infrastructure.

Data Center Energy Management with Dell, Intel, and ZZNode

The goal of energy management usage models is to optimize productivity per watt in order to reduce total cost of ownership. Requirements include the capability to monitor and cap power in real-time at server, rack, zone, and data center levels. This means the ability to monitor and manage aggregated power consumption within a rack, zone, or data center based on available power and cooling resources.

This reference architecture uses Dell PowerEdge C-Series Servers with Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager and EDCM Energy Management Software (from ZZNode), using Intel® Data Center Manager, to provide data center energy efficiency through real time power monitoring of the servers, power capping and policy based energy management.

Cloud Solutions


With the help of Dell virtualization and data center solutions, organizations of all sizes can take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing more quickly and with less hassle. Dell virtualization and data center solutions include pre-tested, pre-assembled, and fully-supported hardware, software, and service solutions that enable organizations to easily and quickly deploy and manage cloud infrastructure while using existing data center investments.

Then, once your cloud is operational, you can take advantage of Dell's work with industry leaders and certified partners to create, deploy, and support cloud solutions built on industry standards, all managed through a common framework. This approach enables customers to transition to a private cloud and to accelerate time to value, simplify the process, and reduce risk and guesswork.
