Newly private Dell takes promiscuous cloud steps
Posted on 14-Dec-2013 11:13 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.

It’s not so much a question of which cloud companies Dell has got into bed with, but which ones aren’t on the list.

At this week’s DellWorld 2013 conference the company announced cloud deals with Microsoft Windows Azure, Google, Red Hat and Dropbox among others. The Dropbox deal centres on the cloud service provider’s new Dropbox for Business offering.

Dell had early announced plans with other cloud providers and its own-branded OpenStack private cloud. Between the list there aren’t many options that aren’t mentioned – apart that is from the cloud juggernaut: Amazon Web Services.

The deal with Red Hat is particularly close with the two working on a enterprise version of OpenStack code-named Havana.
