Drawing Inspiration from Partners at Microsoft Inspire

Our Dell EMC Hybrid Cloud Platform team has the chance to attend many interesting events through the year, but I’m particularly excited about this week’s Microsoft Inspire conference in Washington, D.C.  Naturally, we’re proud to be a Titanium sponsor, but our focus is on the opportunity to talk with you, the 15,000 Microsoft solution partners, service providers, resellers, executives and guests attending the event, about our game-changing, new Microsoft Azure Stack solutions.

Since we announced Dell EMC Cloud for Microsoft Azure Stack back in May, we’ve been hard at work building a world-class hybrid cloud that delivers IaaS and PaaS in a single platform for service providers and customers. We are taking orders for Microsoft Azure Stack now, and working together with Microsoft plan to start shipping the first systems in September.

Dell EMC and Microsoft have a long history of co-innovation which led Dell EMC to ship the industry’s first Microsoft-based hybrid cloud system in October, 2015.  Our testing and validation is very rigorous, matured through experience launching the first Microsoft-based hybrid cloud system. We’re making sure that you get a consistent turnkey experience, letting you confidently deliver innovative solutions faster and with a competitive edge, not risk and complexity. And future enhancements in the areas of data protection and encryption mean you won’t have to figure these things out yourself– we’re doing the work for you!

Recognizing that our partners’ success is critical to our success with the Cloud for Microsoft Azure Stack platform, I want to re-emphasize our commitment to the channel:

  1. You are the key to our success in delivering an excellent Customer Experience
  2. To help you, we will deliver a simple, predictable and profitable partner program
  3. Sales engagement between us and you will include deal registration, joint territory/account planning and teaming agreements
  4. We commit that conflict will be managed and resolved with the highest level of prioritization and transparency
  5. We will offer comprehensive solution and enablement training for Cloud for Azure Stack to ensure your success

“Continuing a long legacy of hybrid cloud solution development, Dell EMC and Microsoft have worked closely together for years to develop this robust solution that enables new hybrid cloud applications and true digital transformation for enterprise customers and service providers alike.” Mike Neil, Corporate Vice President, Azure Infrastructure Management, Microsoft Corp.

And here’s one of our partners who shares our excitement about this new offering.
