Dell Cloud Marketplace launches public Beta

Today at Dell world, we are rolling out the public beta of the Dell Cloud Marketplace.  The marketplace, which is targeted at both sys admins and developers, allows you to set-up, manage, monitor and pay for a variety of cloud services in a self-service model.

The IaaS platforms available at launch are provided by Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Joyent.  Cloud services partners include Docker for application development, Pertino for cloud networking and data management provided by Delphix.

Yesterday before the show kicked off I grabbed some time with the marketplace’s chief architect, Campbell McNeill to learn more.  Take a listen to what Campbell had to say:

Some of the ground Campbell covers:

  • What they learned from this summer’s private beta and how they have rearchitected the marketplace accordingly (focusing on control and governance and leveraging the features of the Enstratius acquisition).
  • A market place catalog where you can get apps running in Docker containers and then run them in the cloud of your choice.
  • Providing developers with agility while at the same time giving those tasked with security and compliance a governance control plane.
  • Sign up today and get $500 free credit and give us you thoughts and help us to further refine improve the marketplace.
