Dell has announced the expansion of its Datacentre Solutions (DCS) business unit in the EMEA region to address the cloud computing market.
DCS is designed to address the needs of businesses operating hyper-scale computing environments, that require datacentre-optimised "design-to-order" technology and services, said Dell.
These data-intensive customers include "internet powerhouses", financial services organisations, national government agencies, university and laboratory environments, and petroleum producers, said the supplier.
"Over the last year, DCS has worked closely with a number of global organisations, helping them simplify their highly complex IT environments with tailored solutions that ensure datacentre optimisation, increased energy efficiency, and lower deployment and management costs," said Andy Cash, head of enterprise technology at Dell EMEA.
"With an increased and dedicated presence in EMEA, we can extend these services and help businesses in this region adopt simplified 'cloud computing' strategies of their own," he said.
Cloud computing supports datacentre requirements across widely distributed IT environments.
