Dell and Inktank Partner on the Cloud and Big Data


Last week, the open source channel buzzed with news of the Linux-based laptop built by Dell‘s (NASDAQ: DELL) Project Sputnik program. Now, the major story about Dell and open source shifts to Big Data, with an announcement of a new partnership between the hardware manufacturer and Inktank to deliver a cloud solution based on open source software. Here’s the scoop.

Inktank, which offers support services for the open source distributed file system Ceph, has made several headlines recently. Expanding from humble beginnings into a key player at the intersection of open source and Big Data, Inktank has forged several important partnerships with companies including SUSE, Citrix (NASDAQ: CTXS) and Canonical.

Inktank and Dell will partner to integrate Ceph into Dell’s cloud platform, which is based on the open source cloud infrastructure OpenStack. Inktank will be working with Dell within the framework of the latter’s Emerging Solutions Ecosystem, which the company bills as “a partnership program designed to deliver complementary and interoperable best-of-breed hardware, software and services components as part of its emerging technology solutions.”
