New cloud solutions, powered by Dell EMC and VMware, enable consistent hybrid cloud operations across public cloud, private cloud and the edge.
- Dell Technologies Cloud delivers a consistent operating model for hybrid cloud, reducing complexity of managing multiple clouds.
- Dell Technologies Cloud Platforms offer an operational hub for hybrid cloud environments, reducing total cost of ownership by up to 47% compared to native public cloud.
- Dell Technologies Cloud Data Center-as-a-Service offering, VMware Cloud on Dell EMC, delivers public cloud delivery model to on-premises and edge locations.
- More than 4,200 global VMware Cloud Provider Program partner clouds and hyperscalers part of global network to help customers extend to the public cloud.
Dell Technologies unveiled Dell Technologies Cloud, a new set of cloud infrastructure solutions to make hybrid cloud environments simpler to deploy and manage. Combining the power of VMware and Dell EMC infrastructure, Dell Technologies Cloud removes cloud complexity by offering consistent infrastructure and operations for IT resources, across public and private clouds and the edge, regardless of location.
According to IDC, more than 70% of companies are using multiple cloud environments, and the largest datacenter challenge most companies face is developing a successful multi-cloud strategy. Operating in multiple clouds has caused organizations to onboard many management consoles and disparate processes, which stifles innovation and adds complexity.The hybrid cloud approach is an ideal solutionby offering a familiar management interface that extends across clouds for a simplified overall experience. With VMware research finding that 83 percent of cloud adopters are seeking consistent infrastructure and operations from the datacenter to the cloud, the Dell Technologies Cloud is designed specifically to address this challenge.
“For many organizations, the increasingly diverse cloud landscape is resulting in an enormous amount of IT complexity, and no one is more qualified or capable to help customers solve this challenge than Dell Technologies,” said Jeff Clarke, Vice Chairman of Products and Operations, Dell Technologies. “Cloud is not a destination, it’s an operating model. With Dell Technologies Cloud and joint engineering between Dell EMC and VMware, we are offering a unified hybrid cloud experience. This provides consistent infrastructure and operations at every location the cloud resides—from on-premises datacenters to public clouds and the emerging edge—allowing our customers to have greater control of their multi-cloud journey.”
Cloud IT infrastructure industry leader delivers a simpler cloud experience
The Dell Technologies Cloud portfolio consists of the new Dell Technologies Cloud Platforms and the new Data Center-as-a-Service offering, VMware Cloud on Dell EMC. These enable a flexible range of IT and management options with tight integration and a single vendor experience for purchasing, deployment, services and financing. Dell Technologies Cloud gives customers more control as the operational hub of their hybrid clouds, on premises, with consistent cloud infrastructure across all cloud types and a broad set of more than 4,200 VMware Cloud Provider Program providers and hyperscalers.
This hybrid cloud approach is delivered through a powerful integration of hardware, software, services and consumption options from Dell, Inc., the No. 1 global revenue leader in cloud IT infrastructure, and VMware, ranked No. 1 in revenue of cloud systems management software based on IDC’s latest research.
The Dell Technologies Cloud complements this core technology with a broad set of value-added services, such as security, data protection and lifecycle management. It helps ensure success through consulting, infrastructure deployment, management, support and education services while offering public cloud-like consumption of IT infrastructure.
Organizations deploying Dell Technologies Cloud can:
- Increase agility
- Accelerate innovation
- Improve cloud economics
- Help reducebusiness risk
Nicole Case, Chief Information Officer, GraceKennedy Financial Group said, “GraceKennedy’s vision is to deliver long term consumer and shareholder value, through brand building and world-class solutions in food and financial services. An industry leading IT strategy to deliver these services via cloud architectures is paramount. The integration between Dell EMC VxRail and the VMware Cloud stack, provides a roadmap for GraceKennedy to optimally run our business-critical applications in private and public environments.”
Michelle Bailey, Group Vice President, General Manager, IDC Research Fellow, Cloud and Datacenter Services, said, “Organizations around the globe are increasingly using multiple cloud approaches as part of their environments—from private clouds in data centers, and increasingly at the edge, to multiple public clouds. While the goal is to simplify IT, operating in many cloud environments ends up consuming time and adding complexity. By enabling consistent operations and infrastructure with a hybrid cloud across on-premises and public cloud with VMware and Dell EMC, the combined Dell Technologies Cloud approach can help alleviate much of the burden on organizations by delivering a seamless experience.”
