Dell has announced two new partnership deals that it says will improve its competitiveness in cloud computing. The company has partnered with Joyent, a cloud computing software and service provider, and Aster Data, a data management and analytics firm, to deliver their technology through Dell's Data Center Solutions (DCS) business.

The DCS effort is intended to help customers to built data centers optimized from the beginning for cloud computing, be they a private, public or hybrid model, said Roy Guillen, general manager of DCS, at a news conference Nov. 19 in San Francisco.

Typical DCS customers are large enterprises running hyperscale data centers that deploy Dell hardware such as its PowerEdge-C servers. DCS delivers Dell Cloud Solutions, introduced in March, that are pre-packaged and tested bundles that are said to be easier to configure, deploy and manage.

Aster Data's nCluster integrated data analytics technology will be delivered through the Cloud Solution for Data Analytics that offers linear scaling to analyze large data volumes in order to gain business insights.

InsightExpress, a 90-employee market research firm, deployed the Dell-Aster Data solution in its company. The company analyzes the effect of online advertising through more than just tracking click-through rates. Instead, it analyzes the results of online surveys of consumers on how ads may have influenced them.
