My colleague and fellow Network World writerBrandon Butler wrote an article the other day about Dell deciding that it was not going to become a public cloud provider. Instead leveraging its recent acquisition of Enstratius, it was going to allow customers to integrate and use the resources of the over 20 public cloud providers that work with Enstratius.
This was despite the fact that Dell already offered some VMware-based public cloud offering and had previously announced a commitment to rolling out an Open Stack-based public cloud. Instead. Dell's Open Stack focus will be in helping customers roll out private Open Stack clouds. What about the VMware public cloud? I don't know.
The bigger question to me is why would anyone want to be a public cloud provider if even an outfit the size of Dell recognizes
that the investment to do it right may make it a prohibitive to succeed venture.
