SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mesosphere [https://mesosphere.com/] -- the creators of DC/OS [https://mesosphere.com/product/], the premier platform for building and running data-rich, containerized applications -- today extended its existing strategic relationship with Dell EMC by becoming part of Dell EMC's formal reseller program. Under this agreement, joint customers can now purchase Mesosphere DC/OS licenses, services and training directly from Dell EMC and its reseller partners globally. By collaborating with Mesosphere, Dell EMC customers can now orchestrate containerized applications and data services between their on-premise and public cloud implementations, thus maximizing efficiencies, reducing cost and optimizing compute resources.

Mesosphere and Dell EMC have a history of collaborating on behalf of customers. Earlier this year, the companies delivered a reference architecture [http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/mesosphere-dell-emc-team-to-deliver-reference-architecture-for-private-and-hybrid-cloud-300454935.html] for deployment of DC/OS across Dell EMC compute and storage infrastructure.

This announcement illustrates the continued collaboration by Mesosphere with leaders in the server industry. By partnering with a leading hardware and software provider like Dell EMC, Mesosphere is better able to provide enterprises with a unique hybrid cloud solution, allowing them to maintain control of valuable proprietary applications and data while still unlocking the full potential of digital transformation.

"We're incredibly proud to extend our relationship with Mesosphere and provide our joint customers a unique hybrid cloud solution," said Joshua Bernstein, vice president of technology, Dell Technologies.

In addition, DC/OS has a unique architecture that allows it to orchestrate both containerized microservices and modern data services using its application-aware scheduling, making it an ideal platform for the kind of applications that are transforming businesses today."

"At Royal Caribbean, we're building complex and groundbreaking software systems that need to be quickly and easily deployed, scaled and maintained across dozens of ships at sea," said Michael Delgado, chief technology officer at Royal Caribbean. "We're excited to see Mesosphere and Dell EMC more closely aligned and working toward cloud-native solutions that provide ease of use, control and the ability to deploy within our own data centers."
