  Dell and OnApp Launch Pre-Tested Cloud Packages for Service Providers

Business Wire

LONDON -- May 09, 2013

OnApp has partnered with Dell to create three pre-tested cloud packages for
service providers, providing a simple and reliable way for hosting companies,
MSPs and telcos to create cloud services and take them to market as quickly as

The packages provide a complete virtual infrastructure for public and private
cloud services. They combine a fully-managed installation of the OnApp Cloud
platform with racks, servers, networking, power and cabling from Dell, and
include Dell ProSupport^TM for all hardware and OnApp's 24x7 support service
for OnApp Cloud.

“At Dell we’ve always believed in the power of technology of help
organisations of every size, location & industry do more," says Paul Brook,
Programme Manager at Dell. "To accomplish this, over the last three years
we’veundergone a company-wide transformation. In the process, we’ve
accelerated the transition from being a vendor that delivers efficient &
inexpensive ‘boxes’ to a partner that provides solutions addressing
theend-to-end needs and shifting priorities of our customers.”

Initially, three options are available giving service providers the option of
building clouds based on OnApp Storage, the distributed SAN included with
OnApp Cloud; Dell EqualLogic iSCSI storage; or Dell Compellent Fibre Channel
storage. The result is a complete 'cloud business in a box,' so service
providers can avoid the usual headaches and heavy lifting of building cloud
infrastructure from scratch.

“This is the combination we'd been waiting for," said Peter Duggal, Managing
Director for UK cloud provider nativespace. "Pre-tested hardware makes so much
sense when you’re planning and building a cloud service. The new Dell and
OnApp packages make deployment much faster and offer predictable stability and
performance, with full support – which helps us guarantee SLAs for our cloud

Kosten Metreweli, OnApp’s Chief Commercial Officer, says “Our approach has
always been about making it as fast, painless and cost efficient as possible
for service providers to bring cloud services to market and become profitable.
Dell is a great partner because they’ve put a lot of thought into how their
hardware can best support our customers. Our goal is to eliminate barriers to
success in the cloud market, and now we can offer a complete package to get
the job done quickly, without the hassle of worrying about the specific
hardware config you need.”
