Infotech Lead America: Dell has acquired enterprise cloud-management software and services provider Enstratius.
Dell did not share terms of the transaction.
The company will further invest in Enstratius in order to create new opportunities for enterprises to accelerate application and IT service delivery across on-premises data centers and private clouds, combined with off-premises public cloud solutions.
The acquisition of Enstratius enhances Dell’s end-to-end solutions strategy, bringing key capabilities to deliver cloud-management solutions to its customers.
Delivering single and multi-cloud management capabilities, Enstratius helps manage applications across private, public and hybrid clouds, including automated application provisioning and scaling, application configuration management, usage governance, and cloud utilization monitoring.
Tom Kendra, vice president and general manager, systems management, Dell Software, said: “Dell, together with Enstratius, is uniquely positioned to deliver differentiated, complete cloud-management solutions to enterprise customers, large and small, empowering them with the efficiency and flexibility in the allocation and use of resources.”
In fact, Cloud management is a key strategic priority for Dell given customers’ rapid adoption of cloud-based applications and the array of cloud deployment models.
Enstratius brings Dell cloud infrastructure management for public, private and hybrid-cloud deployments and complements the capability Dell recently acquired from Gale Technologies, now Active System Manager (ASM), by providing enhanced multi-cloud management and application configuration capabilities.
