Dell today introduced its latest products and solutions at its annual Dell Solutions Tour 2015 in Lahore, Pakistan. The event brings together IT professionals and seeks to help them address key issues in the industry and master the varying landscape to drive IT transformation. This ultimately provides organizations the ’Power to do More’ by improving productivity and efficiency.
The Dell Solutions Tour 2015 hinges on the key theme “ Share ideas, discuss trends and discover IT solutions of tomorrow” which is built around the four primary pillars of “Transform”, “Connect”, “Inform”, and “Protect” (TCIP). These four pillars aim to address two common issues – streamlining IT budgets so that organizations spend on powering their businesses instead of their databases and second, providing solutions that help customers innovate vs. just keeping the lights on.
Dell’s end-to-end portfolio showcased at this event reflects those customer imperatives perfectly through integrating and optimizing Enterprise solutions, connecting End Users, simplifying and securing through Software and accelerating innovation with Services.

Next generation PowerEdge server portfolio
Dell PowerEdge FX: Converged Architecture Bridges Gap from Traditional to New IT
Today’s data center is evolving and businesses are facing pressures to support existing application requirements while using IT in new and exciting ways – all within financial constraints. Typically, customers must choose between a variety of system architectures, including best-of-breed hardware and current converged infrastructure, as the base of their data center operations. The next-generation Dell PowerEdge FX architecture is Dell’s revolutionary approach to converged infrastructure with one common modular and scalable platform with servers, storage and networking integrated to help customers better manage, scale and budget for infrastructure to meet business needs.
“In the past, as our VDI environment grew, my team was forced to make a forklift upgrade of our shared storage systems to keep up with demand,” said Kyle Stewart, Technology Manager, Overlake Hospital. “With the Dell PowerEdge FX converged architecture, we now have a platform that scales linearly and significantly reduces the impact of an outage.”
The next-generation PowerEdge FX architecture is a 2U enclosure with six new PowerEdge server, storage and network IOA sleds built specifically to fit into the FX2 chassis and support varying workloads. Designed with integrated management capabilities, the FX architecture enables customers to easily configure, manage and add capacity to complete workload-specific blocks of IT resources.
This converged infrastructure approach affords efficiencies of shared power, I/O and management, integrated switching, and unsurpassed overall density capabilities at up to 40 2-socket servers in 10U . Building on Dell’s recent PowerEdge 13th generation server portfolio announcement, the next-generation PowerEdge FX2 also includes advanced systems management capabilities to reduce operational complexity and simplify data center management.
