Dell launched its Israeli R&D center based on data storage systems developer Exanet, which it acquired in 2010. The computer giant is expected to double the center’s manpower to 140 employees by the end of the year, consolidating it as a global leader.
Dell’s Israeli R&D center is the first of its kind in Israel. It will focus on developing storage technologies and cloud computing solutions, which will be embedded in Dell products worldwide.
“The Israeli R&D center is at the forefront of storage and cloud computing technology, and we expect that its R&D achievements will make a major contribution to the further strengthening of Dell’s position as a leading player in these fields,” Dell VP Darren Thomas said.
