Back in the Spring when I sat down with Dell’s John Igoe (Executive Director of Cloud and Big Data Solutions) to have a beer and talk technology and business, it only took a few minutes to realize that we had a common interest in providing an enterprise-ready, OpenStack-based private cloud solution to the market for our mutual customers. From there we’ve continued building on our existing SUSE/Dell global partnership to make that a reality.
And the timing is perfect! Just a few months ago, we released SUSE Cloud, the first OpenStack-based enterprise private cloud solution, which features integration of Dell-developed Crowbar and InkTank backed Ceph Storage. With consulting, training and technical services partner Mirantis, the leading systems integrator for OpenStack, we’re part of a dynamic and fast-growing ecosystem that is making open source IaaS a reality for the enterprise.
And for more information, check out Dan Kusnetzky’s take on all this here on his recent ZDNet article.
