Welcome to Enstratius

This morning Dell announced the acquisition of Enstratius, formally known as enStratus.

Enstratius complements the capability Dell recently acquired from Gale Technologies, now Active System Manager (ASM), by providing enhanced multi-cloud management and application configuration capabilities and integrates converged offerings with cloud systems management. Additionally, Enstratius has been in partnership with Dell since April 2012 in Dell’s Emerging Solutions Ecosystem Partner Program, and is offered as a component of the Dell OpenStack-Powered Cloud Solution.

Enstratius’ solutions are “cloud agnostic” so our customers can choose any combination of public and private cloud providers, including Dell and non-Dell clouds. The Enstratius technology can be deployed on-premises or consumed as a subscription service that enables full control from within a customer’s data center—giving our customers the flexibility to use the delivery method that best fits their business needs.

Michael Cote has some useful commentary and links over on his Drunk and Retired blog.
