VMware Enlists Dell to Help Wage Cloud ‘Operating Systems War’

VMware Inc. is working with Dell Inc. and the Ubuntu Linux operating system to spur adoption of its cloud-computing software, ratcheting up competition with Microsoft Corp. for corporate customers.

Dell’s services arm will help install VMware’s Cloud Foundry program, while Ubuntu will begin including parts of the software, said Jerry Chen, a vice president at VMware. EnStratus Networks LLC, which lets companies manage cloud-computing software, also will support Cloud Foundry.
