Dell commits to open-source software for its future clouds

ZDNet - Dell will use the OpenStack cloud management and automation software for its public and private cloud products, the company has announced, in a sign of increasing support for the open-source project.

The company said its upcoming public and private cloud products will be built around OpenStack, a package of software for running clouds that has received broad backing from the technology industry from companies such as HP, Cisco, IBM, Red Hat and Intel.

"Dell is increasing its commitment to OpenStack as its open-source cloud platform of choice for public and private cloud," Dell said in a statement on Wednesday.
