DellThis was announced by Dell Corporation, on Friday, November 7, 2014 that it is going to launch a new cloud computing brokerage software platform to facilitate the customers to access, procure and purchase different cloud computing services offered by multiple partners at one consolidated platform.

The CTO of Dell Cloud Marketplace, Mr. James Thomson, in his statement said, “The idea behind the cloud marketplace is to address the pain points that IT is currently facing when it comes to the governance of cloud consumption within businesses. We think today, over 90 percent of cloud services that are in use are not officially sanctioned by IT, and IT has no visibility into them”. He further said. “They’re unable to forecast their budget, they spend a lot of their time charging back random people’s credit card to IT budgets, and they don’t have governance, so they can’t guarantee all employee access to company systems and information.”

While talking about the technical aspects of this new cloud computing portfolio, Mr. Thomason said, “Dell believes Docker and containerization enables better reporting between different infrastructure platforms; Pertino, a multi-cloud VPC and VPN solution, will give customers instant access and the ability to provision multi-cloud VPC, which has traditionally been very complex; and Delphix can help businesses focus on data migration and the replication of databases between infrastructures”.
