Dell picks SUSE for Linux cloud offering


Dell has chosen SUSE as the first Linux distribution available on its Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service.

Optimised for VMware vCloud, SUSE Linux Enterprise has been selected by Dell as the first Linux distribution to be offered on the Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service.

"Dell Cloud is about enabling customers to do business on their terms. That means providing access to the right hardware, applications and data as customer demand warrants," said Ricky Santos, Dell's vice president for cloud solutions. "Partnering with SUSE enables us to deliver outstanding performance and support for customers who desire scalable Linux services on-demand."

Michael Miller, vice president of global marketing and alliances, SUSE, said "SUSE helps companies run their businesses more efficiently, increasing resource utilisation and reducing risk."

"Dell Cloud customers can now leverage SUSE's extensive application portfolio, and deliver mission-critical IT services scalably on a pay-per-use basis, using Dell's new enterprise-class public and private cloud infrastructure, saving time and money," he added.

Dell positions Dell Cloud as a way of meeting spikes in demand or as a permanent home for some virtual servers to avoid the need to expand an organisation's data centre capacity. The use of VMware is said to make it easier for customers to manage workloads and resources.
