John Igoe, Executive Director of Cloud and Big Data Solutions for Dell, announced at World Hosting Days the immediate availability of the Dell OpenStack-Powered Cloud Solution for Europe and Asia. Included with all Dell OpenStack deployments is the Dell open source Crowbar software framework, which manages the OpenStack deployment from the initial server boot to the configuration of the primary OpenStack components.

Utilizing and integrating the efficiencies of the PowerEdge C line with optimized software and tailored services, the Dell OpenStack Cloud Solution enables users to take a server out of the box and be up-and-running on an OpenStack cloud in mere hours,” said Igoe of Dell. “With Dell’s tested and validated designs in infrastructure, software, and services, customers can build out their IT presence and lower in-house costs.
