Dell Technologies was recently named Datacenter Technology Innovator of the Year at the Dutch IT-channel Awards for its collaboration with NEP on new IT infrastructure. The portfolio of storage and compute solutions Dell Technologies provided NEP with - including VMware Cloud Foundation - earned top honors among more than 50,000 voters at the awards ceremony on May 19, 2022 in Hilversum.
“Innovation is at the heart of what NEP does,” said Gerbrand de Ridder, Lead Solutions Enterprise Architect at NEP Group.
“It is a requirement for us to continue to reach a worldwide audience with our services. Media consumption continues to rise, especially after the boost during the pandemic, and more than ever we need strong technology partners to keep innovating. For our IT infrastructure, we are therefore delighted with the help of Dell Technologies and its partner Tech Data. With their state-of-the-art IT infrastructure, we can now scale much more easily and we have been able to optimize our organization resources.”
The IT environment uses AI and machine learning, which help to manage workloads more efficiently. In addition, the environment also contains the right tools, such as reports regarding financials, monitoring and automatic creation of virtual machines.
The platform can be scaled up and down depending on the workload and it uses multiple public cloud integrations, reducing operational expenditures. Additionally, NEP can easily deploy the architecture blueprint globally.
