Dell releases new cloud computing platform for retail sector

The new platform will allow retailers to manage inventory systems in the cloud.

By CBR Staff Writer

Dell has released Cloud Client Computing for retail, the firm’s first end-to-end cloud application to help retailers move to an in-store cloud environment.

According to the firm, the new platform will allow retailers to simplify store system hardware by centrally hosting and managing complex point-of-sale (POS) and inventory systems within the store or in the cloud.

Dell retail industry practice lead, Mike Adams, said that currently most retailers have had to bring together products and services from multiple vendors in order to address cloud solutions and virtualisation in their store environment.

"As a result of our recent acquisitions that include Wyse, SonicWALL and Quest, Dell is able to provide an end-to-end solution that has been tested and optimized for retail’s unique environment," Adams said.

"Cloud Client Computing for Retail delivers a reliable, cost-effective, end-to-end solution that can allow access to any application from any device."

The new platform will allow retailers to access any application or content from any device, enhance device reliability and improve security, support a test-once-deploy-to-many-devices model.

Additionally the new platform is aimed at enabling users to repurpose endpoint devices for POS, kiosks, customer service or the back office and allow quick replacement of endpoints with no requirement of imaging or staging.
