Dell announced the acquisition of Gale Technologies, a leading provider of infrastructure automation software that allows organizations to streamline the deployment of on-premise and hybrid clouds for self-service access to infrastructure. Gale Technologies integrates well with Dell’s Active Infrastructure family, and provides an intuitive, flexible and comprehensive foundation for application, virtual desktop infrastructure and private cloud deployments for customers. Dell has taken significant steps to expand its enterprise solutions portfolio to help IT organizations more rapidly respond to business demands, improve efficiency, and strengthen IT services quality. An example is Dell’s server and networking business which grew 11% y/y in Dell’s most recent 3QFY13 financial results. Dell was the only server provider among the top three to have positive unit growth in the quarter and expects Gale Technologies to benefit from that reach.
Why Gale Technologies?
Gale Technologies’ solutions are complementary to Dell’s enterprise approach by providing management and orchestration tools that are cost effective and easy to deploy and customize in both homogeneous and heterogeneous IT environments. Dell has taken significant steps to expand its enterprise solutions portfolio to help them more rapidly respond to business demands, improve efficiency, and strengthen IT services quality. Through the acquisition and development of its own IP, Dell has built a set of unique assets to deliver the scalable IT infrastructure of the future based on standardized technologies. The addition of Gale Technologies will help accelerate the momentum of Dell’s current converged portfolio offering, Active Infrastructure, and extend development of additional integrated enterprise solutions that are intuitive, flexible and comprehensive.
