Today is a great day for Quest Software! We are officially part of Dell and starting a new chapter. Quest and Dell have been great partners for years. Dell has been a reseller of our software and I know many of you have purchased your Quest products from Dell. And, of course, the Dell professional services organization has been using our migration and management tools for years to migrate and manage millions of your Active Directory accounts, Exchange mailboxes and SharePoint content.
From my perspective, I have personally worked with Dell for over 15 years. During *all* of my interactions with them, I have found them to be professional, honest, and keep customers interest top of mind.
But please don’t think for one minute that this acquisition will be anything but good for you, our customers. I’m sure you already know that we have migrated over 90 million mailboxes and users, have 80 million AD accounts under management, and 35 million Exchange mailboxes under management. Will anything change with the Dell acquisition? Some things will; for example, the name of the software will change from Quest to Dell but that is about it. We are still committed to our technology, products, and partners. I am very excited about the opportunity in front of us and the value Dell will bring to our customers and partners as we continue our market leadership position!
