This is the part I’m most excited about. I’ve worked with and known the team at Enstratius for many years, esp.

The talent at Enstratius up and down the org is phenomenal and I can’t wait to start working with them in continuing to build Dell’s cloud portfolio. I’ve had a great time being part of the industry heavy-weights at Dell, and it’ll be a privilege to be part of the combined team.

In a coincidental note, check out Barton’s interview with John Willis on culture and DevOps, from last week’s DevOpsDays Austin.
