A few months ago we talked about the launch of Dell’s 12th generation PowerEdge servers and how it is helping to fuel the move to private cloud for many companies.  We also talked about the vStart 50m, vStart 100m and vStart 200m solutions from Dell and how they are not only exceptional virtualization platforms, but also great platforms for customers to use to launch their private cloud deployments.

This week Dell introduced its new vStart 1000m; the newest member of Dell’s vStart family of virtualization and private cloud solutions.  With availability starting in July 2012, the Dell vStart 1000m has been validated against the Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track Reference Architecture, runs Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and Microsoft System Center 2012, and is built with Dell Blades, Force 10 10GbE Switching, Fibre Channel Compellent storage and VIS Creator. 
 
This new vStart 1000m delivers the infrastructure to address a customer’s needs regardless of where they are on their virtualization or private cloud journey – from physical, to virtual, to automated administration and self-service capabilities.  With support for up to 32 (2 socket) blades, the vStart 1000m delivers the levels of performance needed by the most demanding customers to run their business.  Go here for more information about vStart 1000m.
