Dell Acquires Infrastructure Automation Solutions Provider Gale TechnologiesBy: Chris Crum - November 16, 2012
Dell announced that it has acquired Gale Technologies, a provider of infrastructure automation solutions. With the acquisition, the company has formed the Enterprise Systems & Solutions organization.
Dell says it intends to keep Gale Technologies employees, and will continue to invest in additional engineering and sales capabilities to grow it. This, the company says, is consistent with its approach to previous acquisitions.
“Today, enterprises need solutions that enable operational benefits of speed, efficiency, and flexibility in the allocation and use of resources,” said Marius Haas, president of the 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.”
Gale Technologies CEO says, “We are excited to join the Dell team and contribute to the company’s transformation into an end-to-end IT solutions provider by extending the Active Infrastructure family of converged solutions. Combining Dell’s global scale, reach and enterprise portfolio with our people and technology will allow IT organizations to greatly improve the agility and efficiency of today’s and tomorrow’s data centers.”
“As customers increasingly move to fully-integrated solutions, we are favorably positioned to capitalize on these trends with industry-leading server, storage, networking, and software assets coupled together as end-to-end systems,” said Dario Zamarian, the newly appointed VP and GM of Dell Enterprise Systems & Solutions. “In creating this new organization, we plan to accelerate our ability to deliver differentiated value to customers – providing them with improved operational efficiency and the right balance of capability and price.”
Zamarian previously led Dell’s Networking business as VP and GM. He will report to Haas.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
