Dell is launching its global data centre initiative this week in a bid to tie together all this year's product announcements into a coherent marketing message.
The Scalable Enterprise Computing initiative will introduce Dell's preferred-solution partners that fill the gaps in its high-end product and consulting portfolio.
These exclusive partnerships in the UK include OS Integration (MS Exchange), Photonic (CAD), Druid (SAP, Siebel), NetMan (network management) and Partners in IT (HP Open View). Dell is looking for further implementation and service partners with Oracle, PeopleSoft and e-commerce skills.
Dell has also started to factory-install SCO UnixWare in the US and will shortly introduce it in the UK. Factory installations are also available for Windows 2000 beta 3 for pioneering customers. Dell plans soon to explain to customers soon how these operating systems will fit in with future 64-bit computing.
Dell will also make available this week clustering software from Giganet and NewView.
