Dell Products & Services for Local, State & Federal Government

Listen. Learn. Deliver. That's what we're about.

Dell Technologies empowers countries, communities, customers and people everywhere to use technology to realize their dreams. Customers trust us to deliver technology solutions that help them do and achieve more, whether they're at home, work, school or anywhere in their world.

The enterprise landscape is changing rapidly, and the pressure to introduce new technologies into your organization while efficiently maintaining existing servers, storage and networking has never been greater. Big Data, virtualization, application modernization, modular infrastructure and cloud computing can result in substantial benefits, but they require an even higher level of expertise. A complex environment means complex processes - and more potential problems. The more you depend on technology, the more important it is to have the right support.

Dell Technologies provides many capabilities and options to assist Federal Government Information Technology departments in addressing the many aspects of the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) as well as the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA).

To assist the Federal Government in addressing FDCCI and improving FITARA compliance, federal agencies must continue to modernize and to modernize the data center. We believe that there are four foundational pillars or attributes that must be in place to deliver results via the Modern Data Center:

1. Flash Based – Flash based storage reduces the number of drives required to deliver greater performance, which in turn dramatically reduces the cost of delivering consistent and predictable low-latency performance. The reduction in drives would help contribute to part of the FDCCI and FITARA initiatives to reduce floor space, power consumption, and cooling requirements needed to deliver day-to-day storage services. The economics have approached an inflection point, as increasing capacities and decreasing flash prices have combined to drive capacity efficiencies.

2. Scale-Out – Utilizing a scale-out architectural design allows IT departments to deploy systems with a low-cost entry point, while providing a modular approach to scaling out the infrastructure as requirements grow. By designing systems to scale as a single-managed, scale-out system, federal IT departments can efficiently manage massive capacities with few resources. This is critical when dealing with ever-expanding workloads and the need to iterate and expand services in a rapid time frame. A scale-out architecture design facilitates rapid and modular expansion as needed, which enables federal IT organizations to address consolidation and closure of existing data centers.

3. Software-Defined – Using a software-defined model allows Federal IT organizations to automate configuration and deployment of IT services, deliver greater business agility and a more flexible, programmable approach to managing data services. The Automation of Infrastructure Management is another initiative of the FITARA. Leveraging a software-defined model will accelerate this process.

4. Cloud Enabled – Cloud-enabled infrastructures are fundamental to Modern Data Center design. Infrastructure services must be delivered via policy-driven methodologies. To achieve true agility, speed, and efficiency, these policies must extend beyond the data center. IT must have the ability to deploy and manage information and applications – both on- and off-premise – as well as the flexibility to move those workloads back and forth as a business requires. In Dell Technologies hybrid cloud, workloads exist on-premise, which provides a path for organizations to move workloads into the cloud or create workloads in the cloud as needed. Being cloud enabled will allow federal IT agencies to address the Cloud Investment initiative.

Multi-cloud poses opportunities and challenges to government agencies. Multi-cloud implemented ineffectively can create data islands that impact data security, management, and compliance in government agencies carrying classified information. When adopted effectively, however, multi-cloud is valuable to government agencies as it prevents vendor lock-in and offers flexibility, optimized performance, and sometimes reduced costs.A cloud management system must be carefully and strategically implemented to maximize the benefits.
