I believe the Next Generation Computing is Software Defined Infrastructure on top of the robust physical infrastructure. You can ask me anything about enterprise infrastructure (virtualization, compute, storage, network) and we can discuss it deeply on this blog. Don't hesitate to contact me.
DELL Active System is managed by DELL Active System Manager. This is DELL converged infrastructure solution (blade server, networking, storage) to achieve "mainframe of 21st century" with leveraging server virtualization (hypervisors) to have enough flexibility to achieve required infrastructure SLAs.
