Dell Inc. (DELL) is ready to make acquisitions to equip itself for the Battle for the Data Center. CEO Michael Dell said today in Beijing that the company is eyeing acquisitions in key markets for data center equipment and services. "We are focused on data centers, services, software, servers and storage, Dell said. "Those are likely areas for Dell to use its capital for non-organic growth. If you look in the last few years at the acquisitions we have made, it really has been focused in those areas."

On Wednesday Dell unveiled 14 new products for the data center, including new hardware and services. See coverage at Silicon Valley Watcher, GigaOMCnet, ZDNet and Network World
