Dell has agreed to buy Scalent who provide software that makes data center infrastructure dynamic, easily scalable and highly efficient.

Dell will integrate Scalent technology into its Advanced Infrastructure Manager (AIM) solution.

Subject to formal closing conditions, Dell expects to complete the acquisition in its second fiscal quarter.

Dell AIM simplifies datacenter management by enabling a single administrator to allocate and compute storage and network resources for physical and virtual application workloads.

“Scalent provides a critical building block for our Virtual Integrated System,” said Brad Anderson, Dell senior vice president, Enterprise Product Group.

"This acquisition will solidify an important component of our enterprise solution portfolio. We know that Scalent software, in combination with Dell servers, storage and network platforms, provide increased efficiency and value for our customers."
