Security for virtualized datacentres

Dramatically help businesses eliminate email downtime, reduce the cost of managing desktops, reduce software costs, improve Security and combine efficiencies of the Cloud with reliable expertise. In short, this set of software as a service solution will reduce the cost and complexity of IT management.

But is this the reality? Why is Dell choosing to do this now? What new initiatives is it bringing to the party? Isn’t the perception that Dell is strictly a hardware provider? Given this, and the fact that these services are offered by plenty of others, why should Dell be considered in this role?

To get to the bottom of the hype and shed light on the facts, Dell execs are placing themselves in the spotlight of the Reg faithful to provide answers and explanations in this exclusive live and fully interactive broadcast.

Overseeing proceedings will be The Register’s event moderator Tim Phillips, who will be joined by Dan Olds of Gabriel Consulting. The experts will be seeking suitable answers from Dell on their PR claims, product effectiveness and intentions for the Modular Services Market.
