We kicked off November with a bang by announcing the Public Beta for Dell Cloud Marketplace at Dell World. Enrollment is simple, and in fact, register now to enjoy a $500 credit for all cloud services for three months! To learn more, check out the video blog by Barton George where he interviews our Chief Architect for Marketplace Campbell McNeil.

The week after the beta launch, Dell Cloud Marketplace team was also at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent in Las Vegas. With 9,000 participants and 200 partners in attendance, it was a great opportunity for us to showcase our product to the folks who are driving the cloud ecosystem forward.

We’ve received some powerful endorsements from industry analysts and press, including:

  • “One of the most interesting announcements at the event was the beta launch of the Dell Cloud Marketplace, which distinguishes itself from many other cloud vendors by offering customers choice.” – Laurie McCabe, SMB Group
  • “Dell’s position with Cloud Marketplace is really fascinating. It’s taking a sort of broker role, it sees the future and what’s important for customers including controlling the purchasing of cloud services.” – Martin Hingley, ITCandor via Dell World Live Online
  • “Speaking to a small group of journalists at the Dell World 2014…[Don] Ferguson said that he has rarely been as proud of anything he's done as he is with the development of Dell's Cloud Marketplace, a cloud brokerage initiative in which Dell offers IT managers and developers a single place on its Website to buy, use, manage and bill for services from such public clouds as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Joyent cloud services.” – Jeff Burt, eWeek
  • “Dell Cloud Marketplace could address these concerns for companies of any size, but SMBs will be one of Dell's biggest opportunities. [James] Thomason said Cloud Marketplace's simple interface could appeal to IT generalists who don't have experience configuring and managing clouds, as well as to midsized companies trying to grapple with the complexity of multi-cloud environments.” – Michael Endler, InformationWeek
