An overview of the week in deals in the Irish technology sector.
Dell and LetsHost.ie strike managed cloud hosting deal
Ireland’s first web hosting company to offer cloud hosting in both the shared and virtualised server markets, LetsHost.ie, has joined forces with Dell to build its offering on Dell EqualLogic and Dell PowerEdge servers in a deal worth more than €100,000.
Dell has delivered and deployed a solution to provide LetsHost.ie with storage to power its cloud-hosting offering. Standard advanced features within Dell EqualLogic arrays, such as thin provisioning and rapid deployment, permits LetsHost.ie to replicate data across multiple data centres, providing security and availability of customer data.
The latest range of Dell servers also allows Letshost.ie to reduce its footprint in the data centre and reduce its energy consumption.
