Dell Launches IoT for Surveillance

By: IPVM Team, Published on Sep 05, 2018

Historically, Dell has been a PC and server provider (e.g., "Dude, you're getting a Dell") and widely used for surveillance storage.

However, in 2016, Dell finished acquiring EMC (which included VMware) and is now leveraging those companies to launch a new category of products aimed at video surveillance.

In this report, based on a conversation with Dell, we examine their "IoT Solution for Surveillance" including:

  • What Dell means by "IoT Solution For Surveillance?
  • Who the best and worst target markets are for this
  • How it is being customized / bundled
  • Why this is not a PSIM
  • What impact is this has on existing Dell OEM partners
  • Compared to Pivot3
  • Competing with IT-Centric Manufacturers like HP
