EqualLogic exec stresses Dell's channel commitment

Colin Steele, Executive Editor
Dell's acquisition of EqualLogic earlier this year boosted Dell's midmarket storage play -- and, just as importantly, its channel presence. EqualLogic executives, including Bob Skelley, director of the enterprise architecture channel, have taken key roles in helping Dell shift from its direct sales focus to a more partner-friendly model.

In this podcast, Skelley talks about what EqualLogic has done to help build the Dell channel program, and what the future holds for Dell and EqualLogic partners. He also discusses Hewlett-Packard's recent acquisition of LeftHand Networks and its effects on the midmarket storage arena.
