Red Hat, Dell to announce cloud-computing alliance today, AllThingsD reports

Red Hat and Dell are to announce a cloud-computing alliance later this morning, AllThingsD reports. One source says Dell will announce plans to conduct deep engineering work on Red Hat’s version of OpenStack. The companies will develop together an enterprise-grade version of OpenStack based on the latest version, which is code-named Havana. Sources expect Dell to sell hardware with Red Hat's OpenStack installed, but the relationship will be "deeper" than a typical OEM arrangement.
