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.

Moving a critical enterprise application from a physical server to a virtual machine isn't something that you decide to do on a whim one day. A successful migration requires a careful plan, expert thought and preparation. This slide show checklist isn't meant to serve as a diagram for migration; it's meant to help guide your plan before it's crafted and also to serve as a final prelaunch list to make sure you haven't forgotten anything before takeoff. Depending on what you're migrating (virtual machines, applications or just data), you may or may not need to address every one of the following data points. Each best practice should be annotated with the aspect of the stack to which you should pay special attention. The following 10 steps, as provided by eWEEK and Indianapolis-based cloud services provider Bluelock, should be part of any migration to an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution. Whether moving from physical to virtual, private cloud to public cloud or even public cloud to public cloud, don't forget any of these crucial steps in your process. (Note: If you are migrating to PaaS or SaaS, there will be other considerations.)
