Dell Technologies & WWT FY21 Q3 Newsletter
Key highlights from the WWT and Dell Technologies partnership in FY21 Q3.
Another successful quarter completed, and together, WWT and Dell Technologies are on track for a record-breaking year! Q3 closed out at +30% overall growth with +99% growth in Server. Although remaining flat in Storage, WWT is collectively seeing a +41% growth in this category, year to date. With an increase in our Data Protection revenue, and being noted as the top PowerStore Partner in Q2, we are continuing to exemplify our knowledge and rigor around promoting Dell's most effective and innovative products and solutions to our customers. In Q4, we anticipate an increase in customer outreach and opportunities. Through collaboration and teamwork, we know this partnership will continue to become greater every day.
Dell Tech World 2020
WWT sponsored this year's Dell Tech World Virtual Experience, hosting a variety of customers in our virtual booth including American Airlines, Caterpillar, Xcel Energy and more. We also created a three-minute video featuring WWT's VP of Business Development and Marketing Bob Olwig, which aired between highly viewed sessions during the two-day event.
Hot off the Press
In a recent CRN article, Michael Dell and WWT's Scott Miller discuss Dell Tech's as-a-service consumption-based models coming soon and the added value this will deliver customers moving forward. "Having the ability to offer more as-a-service is important for OEMs because it's going to become table stakes," said Miller.
New Dell PowerStore Ansible Lab
To keep up with the growing speed of business demands, there's a pressing need to make programmability and automation an inherent part of operational IT processes. The purpose of this lab is to provide hands-on training on how to start automating your Dell PowerStore infrastructure using Ansible.
Giving Back to the St. Louis Community
WWT delivered 200 Dell Tech laptops to Boys Hope Girls Hope St. Louis, an organization that helps academically motivated middle and high school students rise above disadvantaged backgrounds and become successful in college and beyond.
