Dell has launched a collaborative program that intends to deliver a range of infrastructure-as-a-service offerings to customers through the company’s ecosystem of public cloud partners.
The Cloud Partner Program allows customers to select technology from multiple vendors and help them integrate different cloud platforms, Dell said Monday.
“Many Dell customers plan to expand their use of public cloud,” said Nnamdi Orakwue, vice president of Dell’s cloud business.
“They want a choice of providers, flexibility and interoperability across platforms and models, the ability to compare cloud economics and workload performance, and a cohesive way to manage all of it,“ Orakwue added.
Dell is discontinuing U.S. sales of its in-house public cloud IaaS products to make way for new partner offerings.
Joyent, ScaleMatrix and ZeroLag have joined the alliance program as its first three cloud partners.
Dell recently acquired Enstratius’ cloud management platform to help users work in multicloud environments and incorporate Cloud Partner Program offerings into Dell products.
