Dell To Supply Google-Branded Servers

Dell Inc. said Tuesday it had reached a deal to supply Google Inc. with customized computer servers the search engine company will sell to corporate customers.

Dell spokesman Jess Blackburn said the products are based on the company's server platform but will feature Google-branded logos. The systems will be sold to Google's corporate clients as the Google Search Appliance.

"These would in effect be Google products," Blackburn said. "Nothing about the server would make you think it's a Dell platform."

Financial terms and other details were not provided by Dell or Google.

The deal marks the second time in as many months the two tech giants have partnered.

In May, Mountain View, Calif.-based Google said it would start bundling some of its software on Dell's personal computers.

The server news came a day after Google said it will introduce an online spreadsheet program, a free alternative to the dominant Excel software sold by Microsoft Corp.
