Dell puffs up OpenStack clouds

Dell has announced an OpenStack-based suite of hardware, software, and services as the core of its new cloud-in-a-box strategy, and released a software tool, appropriately called Crowbar, to help its customers pry their way into their cloudy futures. Dell was once enamored with Canonical’s Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud for helping its customers build their own cloudy infrastructure on its PowerEdge-C dense and low-powered servers. UEC is based on the Eucalyptus cloud controller, but will be shifted to OpenStack at some point in the future. And predictably, Dell now has a crush on OpenStack, too. But this time, it isn’t counting on Canonical.
