Dell Technologies‘ Dell EMC subsidiary has provided an enterprise hybrid cloud platform to the technology arm of Dubai’s smart city initiative.
Dell said Sunday Smart Dubai Government deployed the cloud platform to establish an Information Technology-As-A-Service infrastructure that will work to aid the delivery of new services for individuals and organizations.
The company added the cloud platform is designed to provide self-service and automation functions; deeper visibility into performance and capacity usage of infrastructure resources; and a unified backup and recovery system.
The hybrid cloud platform is based on VMware‘s vCloud Suite and Dell EMC’s VPLEX, Vblock converged infrastructure and ViPR Controller software defined storage automation.
Dell said it built the platform to integrate scalability, speed and agility of public cloud platforms with the control and security of private systems.
