Dell recently launched a partner program for its OpenStack and Hadoop cloud service solution. The program will allow Dell partners to sell hardware, software and services as part of the Dell Apache Hadoop Solution and the Dell OpenStack-Powered Cloud Solution, while retaining a single point of contact. The first three partners are Canonical, enStratus and Mirantis. Canonical will provide engineering, online and professional services through the program, while enStratus will offer its cloud infrastructure management product. Mirantis is to sell architecture and design services for OpenStack, cloud migration services and custom OpenStack architecture deployment.
