Dell, one of the largest makers of servers, has announced it had signed an agreement to acquire Scalent, a private company that provides software that makes data center infrastructure dynamic, easily scalable and highly efficient. Dell will integrate Scalent technology into its Advanced Infrastructure Manager (AIM) solution.

Dell AIM simplifies datacenter management by enabling a single administrator to dynamically allocate compute, storage and network resources for physical and virtual application workloads. This solution enables dynamic deployment and repurposing of infrastructure without the need for physical server, cable or storage area network changes. The solution has built-in high-availability, helping organizations manage infrastructure failures without service disruption. Dell AIM works with industry-standard servers, Ethernet switches and Fibre Channel switches, allowing customers to transition quickly to a highly-dynamic data center using existing infrastructure investments. This open architecture enables customers to leverage their existing infrastructure, dramatically lowering the cost of implementation relative to other industry solutions.

“Scalent provides a critical building block for our Virtual Integrated System, the most open, capable and affordable converged infrastructure solution available. This acquisition will solidify an important component of our enterprise solution portfolio. We know that Scalent software, in combination with Dell servers, storage and network platforms, provide increased efficiency and value for our customers. Scalent’s open architecture is an example of Dell’s ongoing commitment to provide customers with solutions that don’t lock them into proprietary hardware or gateways,” said Brad Anderson, Dell senior vice president of enterprise product group at Dell.

Dell’s Virtual Integrated System brings together an end-to-end solution of state-of-the-art servers, storage, networking, software and management tools to work as one dynamically configurable entity that is open and pragmatic. The result is rapid deployment and responsive infrastructure that helps businesses respond to customers’ and employees’ changing needs. Dell’s solution is a distinct alternative to the closed nature of competitors’ proprietary and vertically integrated stacks.
