Oracle, Dell Expand Relationship
Dell CEO Michael Dell used his Oracle OpenWorld keynote to provide more information on the budding Dell-Oracle integration and expectations for further integration going forward.
Dell said his company has entered an engineering-level partnership with Oracle under which Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c is being integrated with Dell OpenManage, a systems management solution that uses inherent management capabilities in Dell servers, storage and networking devices to automate tasks and control maintenance schedules.
With the integration, customers will have a single interface to view their entire infrastructure from hardware to applications, Michael Dell said.
Dell on Wednesday also introduced Oracle Linux and Oracle VM virtualization support to the Dell Active Infrastructure.
The new Dell Active Infrastructure for Oracle solutions means that customers get access to first-call support from Dell Services and can purchase and renew Oracle Linux and Oracle VM support services directly from Dell.
