This IDC Market Note discusses Dell's Cloud Flex for HCI, part of the larger rollout of new payment offers announced at Dell EMC World on May 8, 2017. Dell also reviewed its new program for channel partners.
"By expanding its Cloud Flex model, Dell is addressing the realities of today's IT procurement challenges. Regardless of whether it's an enterprise account or a service provider, most are facing constrained IT budgets, rapidly changing business challenges, and balancing capex and opex models. Dell's new Cloud Flex for HCI addresses these concerns and provides the flexibility that will enable Dell's customers, channel partners, and prospects to embrace the realities of the DX economy." — Susan G.
