In the data centre
Dell servers provisioning with MAAS
At the heart of the data centre and a key component to building a hybrid strategy, Dell PowerEdge servers come certified with Ubuntu as the operating system. Offering the performance and versatility to get the most from your infrastructure, Dell’s flexible designs offer a range of options for price, functionality and scalability to meet your workload needs. Those servers can be provisioned with MAAS for a cloud-like experience and enhanced automation.
Deploy containers at scale with Charmed Kubernetes
You can go confidently into production as we have completed extensive validation, testing and certification to identify the best-fit Dell hardware for container-based solutions. Use Dell EMC PowerEdge servers and Ceph software-defined storage running Ubuntu Server and Canonical’s Charmed Kubernetes to help you manage the complexities of multiple containers across multiple servers. And if you prefer to focus on your business, we can set up your k8s cluster and manage Kubernetes for you, handing back control when you are ready.
Enterprise clouds with OpenStack
Over 50% of all Openstack deployments use Ubuntu and Dell is the most-used hardware for deploying Openstack. Together we have designed, built, tested and certified a private cloud offering so you can move quickly, cost-effectively and reliably from pure virtualisation solution to a production-grade cloud platform like OpenStack. Whether you are experienced and want to operate your OpenStack on your own, or need a fully managed option, you can choose the OpenStack package that best fits your needs.
