What is the Internet of Things (IoT) and How is Dell Involved? 

Predictive maintenance, real-time quality control, and automated process management - the internet of things can help to improve manufacturing performance. Leveraging your existing technology, reducing complexity, lowering risk - Dell's pragmatic approach to the Internet of Things (IoT) can help speed up your IoT deployments.

1. Workload-appropriate configurations

Software-defined workloads are often compute — and storage — heavy. Consider software that includes policy-based tiering and hardware that includes both flash and high-capacity disk tiers.

2. Multiple hypervisor support

SDS systems should support your current hypervisor(s) and be flexible enough to support new ones. A platform based on open standards will help you adapt to more diverse environments.

3. Application-optimized engineered solutions

Seek software-defined storage partners that offer turnkey solutions for common use cases, like VDI. These pre-configured solutions can lower deployment time and costs. For example, the Dell XC Series, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors, can reduce your cost per desktop up to 27%.**

4. End-to-end storage monitoring and management

SDS projects are often started out of a need to simplify and automate an overly complex environment. Insist on integrated management solutions that allow you to monitor server, storage and networking components.

5. Global service and support

You may be decoupling hardware and software, but you don’t want that to complicate support. Look for providers that will serve as a single point of contact for the complete solution — not just the hardware or software.
