In the wake of its recently announced intention to focus more intensely on the data centre technology market, Lenovo has appointed Sumir Bhatia to head the business in the region.
With the traditional vendor business having gone through an upheaval in recent times, the now-privatised Dell is aiming for its channel strategy to take advantage of market gaps and opportunities.
Dell said it has recorded “significant growth” in its channel partner business in the past year, and to maintain the momentum, has appointed a new channel leadership team in Asia Pacific and announced new programmes to accelerate this growth into 2015.
Dell has announced the release of the Dell SuperMassive 9800 Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), and also introduced its NFV (Network Functions Virtualisation) solution offerings and companion starter kits.
Dell has unveiled in Malaysia what it described as its most advanced and easy-to-manage portfolio of PowerEdge servers, designed to help customers address and optimise the evolving spectrum of application and workload requirements.
To address mega trend challenges in 2014 and beyond, there needs to be greater simplicity in the solution stack, the physical infrastructure, and the tools used to monitor and manage operations, writes Sumir Bhatia of Dell.
When it comes to storage, a complete ‘rip 'n replace’ strategy can be more expensive and a lot more complex. It makes the most sense to add new technology, like flash and tiering, to an existing infrastructure to address new demands, improve performance or lower costs for existing applications, writes Dell’s Sumir Bhatia.
