Dell signs OEM pact with Red Hat

Dell signs OEM pact with Red Hat
Dell and Red Hat have signed an OEM agreement this week, giving more options for enterprise customers who are looking for open-source options.

"I think everybody's wanting to have alternatives," adds Ron Pugh, Dell executive director and general manager of the company's OEM solutions group for the Americas (via CW). "Most of our customers have ... seen that there are some benefits [to Linux use] from a time-to-market perspective and working with the open-source community."



Red Hat recently became the first open-source business to reach a $1 billion valuation.

The first verticals in the new partnership will be telecommunications and security equipment manufacturers, where Red Hat is already very prominent.

"We see this as the next step in companies moving from proprietary architecture to building their own things from the ground up to a commodity ... solution, and both companies see that we can help each other," concludes Pugh.
