Dell buys cloud software firm Enstratius


Associated Press

NEW YORK — Dell Inc. on Monday said that it has acquired Enstratius, a provider of software and consulting services for companies that want to use "cloud" computing.

The terms of the acquisition were not announced.

Enstratius is based in Minneapolis and provides tools that help customers manage computing on remote, rented servers — the "cloud."

The acquisition is part of Dell's focus on providing software and services for companies, and complements the November acquisition of Gale Technologies, the Round Rock, Texas, computer maker said.
