Gale Technologies technology helps customers turn discrete compute, network and storage components into integrated and highly optimized application, virtual desktop infrastructure, and private cloud solutions featuring self-service and advanced automation. Gale Technologies' solution provides a comprehensive management, automation and orchestration platform for simplifying end-to-end provisioning across heterogeneous infrastructures. Gale Technologies delivers automated physical and virtual resource allocation, preserves best practice enterprise infrastructure deployment through reusable templates, and masks that complexity from the end user to provide a valuable enterprise asset.
This acquisition complements Dells convergence strategy to improve efficiency and agility and bringing together key IT elements like compute, storage, networking and management. In its 3rd fiscal quarter, Dell’s server and networking business grew 11 percent year-over-year. The addition of Gale Technologies will help accelerate the momentum of Dell’s converged infrastructure family, Active Infrastructure, and extend development of additional integrated enterprise solutions.
Dell announced the creation of a new division, the Enterprise Systems & Solutions organization, to develop converged and enterprise workload solutions. The Enterprise Systems and Solutions organization will accelerate Dell’s ability to design solutions. This can be achieved by designing repeatable enterprise infrastructure models which enable pre-built solutions that can be assembled by Dell or customer architects and developing a single framework to manage complex topologies that include server and storage resources, software images, and network connectivity.
“Today, enterprises need solutions that enable operational benefits of speed, efficiency, and flexibility in the allocation and use of resources,” said Marius Haas, president, Dell Enterprise Solutions Group. “Gale Technologies integrates well with our Active Infrastructure family, and provides an intuitive, flexible and comprehensive foundation for application, virtual desktop infrastructure and private cloud deployments for our customers.”
Ericsson, BT, Fujitsu, Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent, Verizon are some of the customers of Gale Technologies.
