Visit Dell @ OpenStack Summit 2015

OpenStack Summit comes to gorgeous Vancouver, B.C., May 18-22, and Dell is proud to sponsor the event! Dell has sponsored every OpenStack Summit to date, and look forward to seeing everyone in Vancouver.

If you are a Dell customer, contact your Dell Account Representative to learn about a very special invitation only activity Dell is hosting along with our strategic partners Intel and Red Hat. Hint: there is water involved!

We recently enhanced our Dell Red Hat Cloud Solutions to integrate Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 6, picking up support for our 13th generation PowerEdge servers and a bunch of additional capabilities like active-active HA. Make sure to stop by Dell Booth #S11 and we will be happy to review all the new capabilities in our joint Dell and Red Hat Cloud Solutions. We are easy to find –right next to Red Hat and their booth #H4.

We will also be showing off the latest and greatest capabilities in Dell Cloud Manager – if you have not heard of Dell Cloud Manager you NEED to learn about it. Dell Cloud Manager is a truly superior product that will help you manage your clouds, user access and cloud hosting providers in a single tool.

Can you say software defined networking? Dell is leading the charge to make your networks more open and more flexible. At OpenStack Summit we will have Dell Networking specialists on hand to outline our strategy for Open Networking and explain how you can enable business agility and avoid vendor lock-in with third-party OS and software options from Cumulus Linux and Big Switch Networks on Dell Switches.
