Dell buys into remote management market

Dell will buy Everdream, a provider of remote desktop management systems. Financial terms were not disclosed.

It is the fifth acquisition Dell has made. Everdream's technologies are going to complement those of acquisition number three, Silverback Technologies, which Dell acquired in May.

Both deals are part of Dell's strategy of building out its management tools to help corporate buyers simplify their IT systems. The company calls this "Simplify IT".

"Dell's buying spree continues unabated as it tries to fill gaps in its product and services strategies. Earlier this month it announced it was buying iSCSI storage-array supplier EqualLogic now it has gone for Everdream's remote management technology and services," said Ian Brown, senior analyst at Ovum.

"Everdream's Management Platform is delivered over the web as Software-as-a-Service. It provides an integrated suite of on-demand services for a wide range of desktop management operations. This enables Everdream, its partners and customers to manage PCs irrespective of their location and provides clients with a range of compliance, uptime, and IT support services," Brown added.
