Acquisition Overview

Dell today announced the acquisition of Enstratius, an award-winning provider of software and consulting services that deliver hybrid-cloud and single-cloud management capabilities.

Why Enstratius?

The acquisition of Enstratius further enhances Dell’s end-to-end solutions strategy bringing key capabilities to deliver cloud management products to our customers. Enstratius is available as software-as-a-service or as on-premise software that enables full control from within a customer’s data center, or via a hosted service.
Enstratius complements the capability Dell recently acquired from Gale Technologies, now Active System Manager (ASM), by providing enhanced multi-cloud management and application configuration capabilities and integrates converged offerings with cloud systems management.

Customer and Partner Benefits

As customers embrace the promise of cloud computing and address the challenge of managing multiple cloud environments, Enstratius simplifies that management task with a self-service catalogue, design tools and management tools that help customers create and deploy multi-component applications across one or more clouds.

Enstratius brings Dell cloud-infrastructure management for public, private and hybrid-cloud deployments. Enstratius also complements other Dell technologies such as Foglight performance monitoring, Quest ONE identity and access management, the Boomi integration platform, and data protection offerings such as AppAssure and NetVault to create a stronger systems management portfolio that specifically addresses cloud systems management.

“As enterprises increase their use of public, private and hybrid clouds, the need for controls, security, governance and automation becomes more critical,” said Tom Kendra, vice president and general manager, systems management, Dell Software. “Dell, together with Enstratius, is uniquely positioned to deliver differentiated, complete cloud-management solutions to enterprise customers, large and small, empowering them with the efficiency and flexibility in the allocation and use of resources.”

“We are excited to join the Dell team and bring our expertise to Dell’s rapidly growing cloud-management capabilities,” said David Bagley, CEO, Enstratius. “Together, Enstratius and Dell create new opportunities for organizations to accelerate application and IT service delivery across on-premises data centers and private clouds, combined with off-premises public cloud solutions. This capability is enhanced with powerful software for systems management, security, business intelligence and application management for customers, worldwide.”
