and Dell Team Up to Grow Cloud Computing and Dell have been longtime partners, and earlier this week they announced they are teaming up to target SMBs. They will offer joint, certified cloud-computing CRM bundles that will be priced as low as $9 per user per month (the cost of Salesforce’s Contact Manager Edition).

Salesforce and Dell have been testing the solution within their respective companies: Salesforce runs its datacenters and PCs on Dell equipment, and Dell has integrated Salesforce CRM with their on-premise applications using Dell’s PowerEdge servers and Integration Services. For Salesforce, this collaboration with Dell is a means of extending the adoption of cloud computing services, as it gives smaller businesses the obvious cloud-computing benefit of managing customer relations without the cost of managing infrastructure while utilizing pre-existing hardware.

Businesses with multipart IT systems will benefit from Dell Integration Services, which provides inexpensive and fast integration and migration for businesses using Salesforce’s cloud. Dell will more or less be reselling the stable of products—from the Contact Manager to the Enterprise Edition—and offering the integration services.
