McKinney administrators in Texas have adopted Dell’s suite of database management and information technology monitoring systems as part of efforts to help modernize the city’s municipal services.
The suite includes Foglight to monitor application performance, Toad Data Modeler to allow disparate databases to communicate with and understand one another, two PowerEdge M1000e enclosures for the city’s data centers, and support from Dell Consulting Services, Dell said Monday.
“Bridging gaps in performance visibility, optimizing data center efficiency and diagnosing application failure faster are must-have capabilities for any IT department looking to deliver modern and scalable services,” said Paul Christman, vice president for public sector sales and marketing at Dell Software.
“We are pleased that our end-to-end approach allowed the city of McKinney to accelerate their IT modernization efforts and extend the lifecycle of existing IT investments.”
Dell said McKinney intends to later install the Dell Boomi AtomSphere integration platform as a service.
According to the company, the city has an infrastructure that maintains over 200 applications for law enforcers, the fire brigade and other local government services, plus miles of network fiber optics and an array of switches and firewalls.
