Dell Technologies announced Dell EMC PowerStore, an innovative modern infrastructure platform engineered with data-centric design, intelligent automation and adaptable architecture – all to address challenges in the data era.

PowerStore is supported by Dell Technologies On Demand, our portfolio of flexible consumption and as-a-service solutions across Dell’s entire end-to-end portfolio – from workforce solutions to data center gear– from edge to core and cloud. When it comes to storage, Dell Technologies On Demand delivers significant value such as clear cost savings with gains in efficiency, productivity and business agility.

In a recent IDC study analyzing the business value of Dell Technologies On Demand, participants cited both cost and time savings as noteworthy advantages. Customers who moved to usage-based – or pay-per-use –  consumption models with Dell EMC storage saw a 23% lower cost of storage operations per year, 25% lower storage acquisition costs, and 92% faster time to deploy new storage capacity.

The key driver of these benefits is our Flex On Demand model, ideally suited for environments where storage capacity requirements are highly dynamic or seasonal. It enables customers to scale with elastic capacity – as demands rise or fall – with payments aligned with usage.

For instance, our customers tell us that Flex On Demand gives them the flexibility to increase capacity, and bring in cost predictability without having to buy it all at once. For them, the most evident advantage is accessing the newest technology at an affordable price and using it as a utility service.

For those looking for shorter-term commitments, we recently announced the availability of a new one-year term for Flex On Demand – expanding the currently available three- or five-year term options – offered on all Dell EMC storage, as well as converged, hyperconverged, and data protection solutions.

For more than 14 years, we’ve been leaders in flexible consumption solutions. Our portfolio now approaches over $3.5B in assets under management. So, whether you choose to pay for technology as you grow, or as you use it, or as a service, we’ve got it covered. With Dell Technologies On Demand, customers can more effectively control costs, manage expenses, and optimize budgets to meet short-term requirements and long-range objectives.

PowerStore and Dell Technologies On Demand continue our long-standing dedication to driving innovation for our customers. For more information on Dell Technologies On Demand, watch the short video below, read this brief overview.
