AUSTIN, Texas—Dell officials don't want the company to be known as simply a PC maker anymore. Since Michael Dell returned as CEO in 2007, the company has been aggressively growing out its enterprise IT capabilities through both in-house development and spending billions of dollars in acquisitions of vendors with expertise in storage, networking, software and services. And now that Dell is a private company, executives are expecting to accelerate that transformation from a PC maker into an end-to-end IT solutions provider, pushing its way into a market already occupied by the likes of Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Cisco Systems and Oracle. At the Dell World 2013 show here, officials are putting those capabilities on display, showing that not only does the company have the technology, but those products all work together to enable organizations to address the data center challenges of today, from cloud computing to big data. This eWEEK slide show takes a look at some of the products Dell is showing off, as well as some other areas of the show floor.

Without digital networks, all the data in the world would be in silos, and moving, sharing and distributing information would be a bit more than simply tedious—to say the least. Consequently, networking is inherently at the center of our professional and increasingly digital lives. All those boxes, Ethernet cables, cell towers and blinking lights in some remote data center inject life into the devices that surround and connect us. Like all the rest of IT, the network is evolving. In 2013, we saw buzz-acronyms such as SDN (software-defined networking) and NFV (network functions virtualization) become a reality for some carriers and large enterprises; cell phone coverage and data streaming became less of a nice-to-have and more of an end-user expectation; and new security threats ebbed and flowed. This eWEEK slide show presents a set of trends in networking that Juniper Networks expects to see over the next 12 months.
