Dell and Microsoft Deliver a Foundation for Private Cloud

Dell vStart 200 for Microsoft Available Today!

Last week, you heard about System Center and the Microsoft private cloud solution – and how together they help customers and partners move faster, save money and better compete today.  Many of our customers are excited about getting the benefits of private cloud today and want to know how they can do that – quickly, simply and cost effectively.  Today, we are excited to talk to you about one option that helps you do just that. 

As part of our ongoing strategic partnership with Dell to help customers quickly deploy and manage virtualization and private cloud technologies, we’re announcing the availability of Dell vStart 200m, a pre-built, pre-configured, simple and fast path to a Microsoft private cloud. 

This Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track-validated solution brings together the best of Dell and Microsoft technology to give you a turnkey appliance that delivers virtualization, simply and at scale.  With this new solution, customers only have to take one step to move from virtualization to private cloud computing – and that is adding Microsoft System Center.  Built on Microsoft Hyper-V and Windows Server 2008 R2 DataCenter Edition, which includes unlimited virtualization rights, Dell vStart200m helps customers benefit from the economics of the Microsoft private cloud.  Dell vStart 100m, built on Microsoft Hyper-V is also available today.

We are also announcing improved integration of Dell AIM and Microsoft System Center – giving customers deep management insight across infrastructure, operating systems and applications, and providing a simplified, integrated management experience delivered through a “single pane of glass”.

Whether you are ready to start your journey to private cloud or looking for integrated management solutions, Dell and Microsoft are committed to helping you quickly manage and deploy virtualization and private cloud solutions – today. 

These new solutions from Dell are available in the U.S., Canada and Mexico in North America and Brazil now and will be available in select countries in EMEA and APJ in the near future.  You can learn more about these solutions by visiting and
