Dell Computers on Wednesday rolled out its datacenter vision, an effort dubbed the Virtual Integrated System (VIS) architecture, that aims to cater to enterprise customers who are looking to migrate to cloud computing while preserving investments in existing legacy gear.
This VIS comes as IT pros are being constantly pitched with new data center architectures. Hewlett-Packard talks converged infrastructure. Cisco Systems has the Unified Computing System. IBM and Oracle also have their visions. Dell is trying to position itself as a more open datacenter stack and one that will play well in hybrid cloud environments. The VIS move is also a coming out party for Dell's software effort since it is featuring datacenter management software as well applications to deploy enterprise software.
But the overall message from Dell is that its architecture isn't a "one-size-fits-all approach".
