Dell Renews EMC Deal
Round Rock-based Dell has renewed its major partnership with EMC on storage, the firms said earlier this week, as part of a multi-year deal. According to the firms, they have extended their global alliance until 2013, meaning that Dell will continue to sell EMC's hardware, white-labeled under the Dell brand. Financial details of the renewal were not disclosed. Dell and EMC also said that EMC will also add the firm's Celerra NX4 storage systems to its lineup with Dell. EMC and Dell inked their original storage partnership back in 2001, vaulting Dell into a major supplier of mid-size and enterprise storage. Dell is now EMC's largest reseller.
