Dell Enhances VIS Architecture Capabilities

Dell has launched a new range of products to manage its virtualised data centre.

The US computer giant has initiated a new business line by launching Virtual Integrated System (VIS), set to enter competition with big data centre providers including Cisco Systems, Hewlett-Packard , and EMC, tech news site IT Pro reports.

"VIS is not a product, It's a strategy, not a solution in itself. But there are products within VIS. We launched our Advanced Infrastructure Manager earlier this year and we're announcing two new components: Creator and Director," said chief of product marketing for large businesses at Dell, Ed English.

According to English, VIS is not limited to use within Dell only, but other virtualised infrastructure developers and firms built on Cisco networking systems can easily make use of this range of software utilities.

Dell has revealed that the company will continue to work on the platform and a new tool will be added to it early next year.

Cisco has developed a set of tools to manage virtual data centre called Unified Computing System, HP’s system is called Blade System Matrix, and EMC’s is known as Ionix Control Centre.
