Dell's Data Center Unit Racking Up Cloud Sales

Friday Jan 15th 2010 by Staff

Over the past two years, Dell's Data Center has engineered between 30 and 40 cloud server designs for its large customers.

InformationWeek: Counting Yahoo, Microsoft's Bing,, and Amazon Web Services among its customers, Dell's Data Center has become a major server supplier to Internet companies. Although it has only 20 customers, if the business unit were split apart from the rest of Dell, it would be the U.S.'s third largest supplier of x86 servers with 10 percent of the market. As such, Dell has become a major supplier for "the cloud."

According to Forrest Norrod, Dell Data Center's VP and general manager, "Interest [in private cloud computing] is spiking through the roof," and most new enterprise applications will be designed to run in public or private clouds.
