Dell & The Cloud & facebook

Cloud computing is something that we are chatting lots about at Dell.  You might have seen the recent announcement with Joyent.  If not, here is a terrific post on what we are up to with them. Love this bit on what happened when they called Dell:

We had test systems FedEx’d to us and confirmation that Joyent would be able to run our stack on their stack within 36 hours. Once we had given the green light, the systems were in our data centers in two days. And OpenSolaris is supported on these systems according to a recent news item. We have a direct sales representative at Dell who is amazing. We don’t have to work the Dell organizational chart because our sales representative just gets things done. There’s not much to say about the Dell relationship because it is drama-free. Joyent’s relationship with Sun wasn’t. A cloud computing company needs reliable, drama-free supply. It’s that simple.

BTW what Joyent is up to is very cool.
