O’Ryan Johnson

‘What is exciting about this announcement is that Dell has effectively removed the barriers to entry by providing multiple options for a validated engineered solution,’ says Rick Gouin, chief technology officer at Dell Platinum Partner Winslow Technology Group.

Dell Technologies said its expanded DevOps collaboration with Red Hat has resulted in three products, two aimed at using Dell platforms to manage OpenShift, while the third is a project aimed at simplifying the infrastructure stack for DevOps teams to build upon.

Dell APEX containers for Red Hat OpenShift offers an on-premises cloud experience for developers using Dell-managed container-as-a-service products. Dell’s Validated Platform for Red Hat OpenShift allows skilled IT teams to run their own environments on the PowerFlex platform.

“We’re pleased to see Dell and Red Hat joining forces to ease the complexity of moving to and operating in a multi-hybrid cloud world. We look forward to building on our long-standing, successful collaborations with both companies by co-developing DevOps and cloud-native initiatives that help enterprises reduce technical debt, ramp up organizational agility and accelerate their reinvention on cloud,” Raj Wickramasinghe, lead for Hybrid and Emerging Platforms, Accenture, said in a statement that accompanied Dell’s release.

Ninety percent of global organizations are expected to take advantage of containerized applications by 2027, said Dell, citing Gartner. However, as more companies’ seek to use containers they encounter the complexities of finding the skilled workers to deploy and run those installation, Dell said.

Dell Platinum Partner Winslow Technology Group CTO Rick Gouin said his customers call asking for container options as they look to expand their multi-cloud footprint.

“APEX is a big focus for us here at Winslow Technology Group, and we know it’s a big focus for Dell as well,” he said. “We are always excited when Dell adds a new solution offering to the APEX portfolio. We want to see as many solutions as possible available through the APEX program and console.”
