A Flood Of Announcements From Dell


This year's Dell World event is the first event since the company went private and the company today is made some major strategic announcements.

Starting with Dell Ventures, Dell?s strategic investment arm, which announced a $300 million Strategic Innovation Venture Fund. The fund will enable Dell to invest in early-to-growth-stage companies in emerging technology areas including storage, cloud computing, big data, next-generation data center, security and mobility.

In addition, Dell and Red Hat will jointly engineer enterprise-grade, private cloud solutions based on OpenStack to help their customers move to and deploy scalable cloud computing models. The co-engineered solution will be built on Dell infrastructure and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. It will be delivered by a Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform practice within Dell Cloud Services.

Dell and Red Hat will also jointly contribute code to the OpenStack community and collaborate on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4, currently in beta, which integrates OpenStack Havana, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5. In addition, Dell plans to work with Red Hat on several future-state projects including:

- OpenStack Networking (Neutron) to enable Software-Defined Networking and Networking-as-a-Service between interface devices such as virtual network interface cards, and

- OpenStack Telemetry (Ceilometer) to provide OpenStack resource instrumentation, which can help support service monitoring and customer billing systems.

The joint Dell-Red Hat solution is scheduled to be available in 2014.

Dell will also offer the Google Cloud Platform and its compute, storage and application services to developers and businesses worldwide through the Dell Cloud Partner Program next year.

The Dell Cloud Partner Program will also include Windows Azure, as Dell is building on its existing strategic alliance with Microsoft.

Dell is further expanding the Dell Cloud Partner Program to include CenturyLink and its new CenturyLink Cloud. Through the Dell-CenturyLink alliance, Dell customers globally now have access to a slate of public cloud services, including Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), which can be deployed across CenturyLink's global data center footprint.

Through the Dell-CenturyLink alliance, Dell customers benefit from CenturyLink Cloud's compute, storage and networking services. Each service is accessible via web services API and in a unified management interface that includes automation and orchestration features specifically for CenturyLink Cloud.

In addition, Dell announced at Dell World that it is expanding its worldwide agreement with Accenture. The companies will jointly develop and sell a new set of offerings designed to deliver improved enterprise efficiency, higher security, and better business outcomes.

The Dell/Accenture solutions will be available in North America in mid-2014 and available in multiple countries around the world in 2015.

Dell is also collaborating with Dropbox, by offering Dropbox for Business through its sales organization.

Last but not least, Dell will strengthen its services offering targeting heathcare, banking, financial services, securities and insurance.

Dell's announcements show the copmpany's future direction as it seeks to replace the revenue it has lost from falling PC sales.

Dell seems to want to be a a neutral player as a cloud service provider, although all these announcements run the risk of creating mass confusion for the customer base.
