Dell Changes Up OpenStack Cloud Plans

In a major announcement from Dell yesterday, the company announced that its public cloud ecosystem and strategy will be centered on partners Joyent, ScaleMatrix and ZeroLag, and will emphasize recent acquisition Enstratius. The announcement represents one of the biggest snubs to the open source OpenStack platorm yet, as Dell had previously announced that its whole cloud strategy would be built around OpenStack.

According to Dell's announcement:

"Dell is launching the Dell Cloud Partner Program to deliver public cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) through an ecosystem of partners. Acting as a single-source supplier, Dell will offer customers a choice of vendors and technology, freedom from lock-in to a single platform or pricing model and a central point of solution integration and control. Sales of Dell’s current in-house multi-tenant public cloud IaaS will be discontinued in the U.S. in favor of best-in-class partner offerings."
