Infrastructure & innovation in the Internet of Things

IoT infrastructure from device to data center

Just like the IoT ecosystem itself, the technologies that run the Internet of Things must be interconnected and interoperable. Across a variety of verticals, PCs, servers, storage and virtualization hardware need to play nice with software-defined data centers, hybrid cloud, converged infrastructure, mobile computing, security and more.

To truly stand out in a marketplace with mass potential, you need to move past the hype, with pragmatic strategies to enter into the IoT from gateways to datacenters and the cloud—all of which can deliver the data-backed, actionable insights needed to keep your solutions safe and cutting edge. However, building a team in-house that can handle the amount of customization present in a typical IoT deployment is time-intensive and expensive, both of which take away from the time your business could be innovating.

That’s why Dell EMC’s flexible compute platforms offer optimized portfolios of resources wherever you might need them in your deployment. From embedded box PCs that easily fit into your business use case to analytics-driven IoT gateways and servers that support large-scale computing no matter the business or physical environment.

The Internet of Things is a perfect space for innovation

As operational technology and information technology continue to converge, so will the opportunity for you to draw from the data-centric IT functions more closely aligning with hardware on the OT side.

Enabling OT and IT to work together while also nailing the analytics your customers demand will determine whether your business sets the pace as the Internet of Things continues to grow. Dell EMC computing systems and gateways power the engines behind analytics in the customized solutions that epitomize IoT deployments—and take advantage the convergence of IT and OT within these systems.
