what is smartInfrastructure with Dell?
Dell is known as a market leader in server technology. With the addition of Nebulon’s smartInfrastructure technology, you’ll get cloud SaaS-based management and control for on-prem, server-based enterprise application data with automated infrastructure operations in your versatile Dell PowerEdge Servers – no external array needed.
smartInfrastructure is made up of a SaaS-based cloud control plane called Nebulon ON which powers an on-prem data plane comprised of IoT endpoints called SPUs (Services Processing Units) embedded in your Dell application server. Each SPU runs a full stack of enterprise data services for shared or local storage applications, connects directly to the SSDs inside the server, and is the perfect companion to Dell’s compute solutions, optimized for virtualization, bare metal databases, and containerized applications.
