Flex on Demand by Dell Financial Services (DFS) allows a customer to acquire technology they need to support their changing business with payments that scale to match their actual usage. This model helps align their cost with usage and avoid paying for buffer capacity that is not used. It improves agility by providing instant deployment of capacity for usage when spikes occur in business operations. It improves budget agility and power by delivering better operational economics.
- DFS works with customers to establish the “committed capacity” presently needed and the “buffer capacity” required in the future.
- Buffer capacity is measured using automated tools with their equipment. Each payment is comprised of the fixed committed capacity and variable buffer capacity amount.
- If their usage consistently consumes most of the buffer capacity, they have the option to receive additional buffer capacity. Once installed, their level of committed capacity and related payment will increase.
