These days, keeping your head in the clouds can actually be good for business — especially when it comes to cloud computing. But true success lies in results. That means saving customers time and money, but it can also mean saving lives in the fight against cancer.
Based on this week’s Dell World 2012 breakout session “Battle of the Clouds,” presented by top cloud execs, Dell is aiming sky-high — and hitting the mark — on all counts. The stats they cited made it clear that there’s real substance behind the cloud. For example, by virtualizing 10,000 servers and reducing applications from 7,000 to 2,500, Dell has saved customers more than $300 million.
But besides boosting customers’ bottom lines and making their jobs easier, there’s a deeper, more meaningful aspect to cloud success: It can save lives. In her Dell World session “Technology for Good: Moving from Impacts to Opportunities,” Trisa Thompson, VP of corporate responsibility at Dell, outlined how the Translational Genomics Research Institute is using a Dell cloud to reduce the time spent on genome mapping and analysis of cancer in children — from months to minutes. What’s more, this groundbreaking work is contributing to the world’s first personalized medicine clinical trial for pediatric cancer.
The numbers in the infographic below demonstrate the power of Dell’s cloud solutions success. We’re making sure the cloud delivers on its promise: saving businesses time and money while being a life-saver, too.
