Dell Announces Ramp Up Of Taiwan Office – To Hire 100 Cloud Computing Professionals

Dell Announces Ramp Up Of Taiwan Office – To Hire 100 Cloud Computing Professionals

Two weeks back I had written about how cloud computing has emerged as a viable career option (See: Should You Train To Be a Cloud Computing Professional? – Part 1  and Should You Train To Be a Cloud Computing Professional? – Part 2 ). Now, computing giant Dell has announced the expansion of its Taiwan Design Center, with the headcount slated to increase by 100 from the current 600 employees. This increase is in an effort to expand its cloud computing research capacity.

Dell has come a long way since founder Michael Dell put together computers in his University of Texas dorm in Austin. While it has been dominating the personal computing landscape for years now, it has recently decided to focus on what it believes to be a defining technology of the future – cloud computing. To that effect, it has invested big money in making its presence felt, initially through acquisitions (See: Dell’s Deals in Cloud Computing and Dell’s New Cloud Computing Buy).

In March earlier this year, Dell announced its intention to invest $1 billion throughout the year to deliver “leading solutions, services and cloud-based delivery options” to launch and sell cloud services, starting with email archiving and a hosted virtual desktop software. Over the next few months, it has made a concerted effort to promote Dell Virtualization Solutions and introduced a new line of eco-friendly servers specifically geared towards cloud computing (See: Energy Efficient Microservers from Dell for Cloud Computing Infrastructures).

Dell had opened the Taiwan Design Center in September 2002 to develop notebooks and coordinate with local partners. According to Dell senior vice president for Enterprise Solutions Group, Brad Anderson, this new expansion will focus on offering cloud computing solutions tailored to different clients including servers and storage devices. According to Dell Taiwan President Terence Liao, “The demand (for cloud services) remains brisk and does not show any sign of a recession.”

Taiwan is a nation that has been very encouraging of cloud computing, and this shows in the large number of big names setting up shop there. I had earlier written about how this may emerge as one of the major industries in the island-state (See: Cloud Computing: Taiwan’s Next Trillion Dollar Industry). In fact, the entire continent of Asia presents myriad opportunities in this field, recognized by giants like Intel (See: Exploring the Intel Cloud Builder Community ) and mentioned in several articles of mine:

2. The New Chinese Cloud OS
