We announced today an agreement to acquire Scalent which provides software that makes data center infrastructure dynamic, easily scalable and highly efficient. We’ve been working on this for a while and their product is currently available as the Dell Advanced Infrastructure Manager, or AIM.
Details on AIM are here along with a number of linked documents. As always until the acquisition is closed there is a limit to the amount I can discuss, but this is part of a major software initiative we are working on. Scalent has some key technology which will help us jump start this project, delivering some valuable function to help customers manage their infrastructure.
The formal Dell press release is here.
