On the open source front, Dell announced a deal with Linux vendor Red Hat to co-engineer an enterprise-grade OpenStack private cloud solution. Dell is no stranger to the OpenStack world and is an active member of the OpenStack Foundation. Dell also has already had partnerships with Linux vendors in the OpenStack space. Back in April, Dell announced a partnership with SUSE Linux for a private cloud OpenStack solution.
Red Hat spokesperson Stephanie Wonderlick told Datamation that the new Dell partnership does not signify any change to Red Hat's own OpenStack strategy. Wonderlick explained that the core of the Dell partnership news is that Dell will be OEMing Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.
