Dell doesn’t seem interested in becoming a major virtualization player on its own but continues to stack up 3rd party solutions to build its product portfolio.
In September 2008 the company signed an OEM agreement with both PlateSpin (a Novell subsidiary) and Vizioncore (a Quest subsidiary), in December 2008 signed a similar deal with Egenera.
Now it’s the time of Reflex Systems, the US startup that changed its name (formerly known as Reflex Security) and go-to-market strategy at the end of last year.
The OEM agreement only covers the new multi-hypervisor management tool that Reflex unveiled in November: Virtualization Management Center (VMC).
Definitively a good restart for a company that struggled to find success in the virtualization security market.
