FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(Business Wire)--
GlassHouse Technologies, a leading independent IT infrastructure
consulting and services firm, today announced that it has entered into
a strategic partnership with Dell Inc. The partnership includes an
investment by Dell and provides Dell with access to GlassHouse's
intellectual property (IP), sales and marketing resources over a three
year period. The partnership will not affect GlassHouse's business
model, with GlassHouse remaining a vendor-independent consulting firm.

   "Dell is leading the transformation of storage IT to simpler, more
manageable and robust environments," said Stephen Murdoch, vice
president, Global Infrastructure Consulting Services, Dell.
"GlassHouse offers intellectual property and knowledgeable people
that, when combined with our products and services, enhance our
ability to help customers simplify their storage environments."

   "Teaming with Dell through a strategic partnership allows us to
continue developing our IP to better serve our customers," said Mark
Shirman, CEO of GlassHouse. "Dell is a natural partner for GlassHouse
as we are both focused on service offerings in the storage,
virtualization and data center markets."
