Dell today announced its Emerging Solutions Ecosystem, a partnership program designed to deliver complementary and interoperable best-of-breed hardware, software and services components as part of its emerging technology solutions such as the Dell Apache Hadoop Solution and the Dell OpenStack-Powered Cloud Solution.
The program specifically focuses on emerging technologies, with two key areas of big data and cloud enablement. Dell has delivered specific solutions to market on the Hadoop big data framework and the OpenStack open source cloud platform. The Emerging Solutions Ecosystem will enable expansion of the scope of those solutions and to continue to meet customer needs. As a result, customers can benefit even more from deploying these enhanced and validated solutions, which are optimized for maximum performance and scalability, and provide a single point of contact with whom to interact.
It’s great to see this announcement, it should hopefully enable Dell and it’s partners to develop the right stacks and offerings to meet client needs based on appropriate technology and best of breed practices and processes for effective deployment, management and support.
