Dell Technologies caters to multi cloud reality with new capabilities

By Catherine Knowles
Fri 21 Jan 2022

Dell Technologies has introduced multi cloud capabilities designed to create a consistent experience wherever applications and data reside.

The company has also expanded support for developer operations (DevOps) with new offers and resources to help choose the right cloud environment combined with the security, support and predictable cost of Dell infrastructure.

Dell Technologies president infrastructure and solutions group Jeff Boudreau says, “Today’s multi cloud reality is complex as data becomes more distributed across on-premises and colocation data centers, multiple public clouds and edge environments.

"We have the industry’s broadest technology portfolio, consistent tools, experience building open ecosystems and leading data storage capabilities, services and supply chain.

"All this uniquely positions Dell to help customers take control of their multi cloud strategy.”

Dell Technologies president global digital cities Asia Pacific and Japan Amit Midha says, “Our customers want simplicity, agility, and a consistent experience to manage their data across multiple cloud environments.

"With our sustained investments in expanded multi cloud portfolio and a vibrant cloud ecosystem, we will enable organisations to improve spend predictability, transparency, and scalability.

"Through our strategic ecosystem approach, customers can securely store, access, and consume data wherever it is created and consume cloud services anywhere their business needs it."

A new Forrester Consulting study commissioned by Dell Technologies reveals that 83% of organisations have adopted a multi cloud approach or plan to within the next 12 months.

New Dell services help organisations manage, store and protect data across multiple cloud platforms. This allows organisations to bring the simplicity and agility of public cloud platforms to the location of their choice with APEX services - achieving multi cloud by design not by default, the company states.

In addition, with data becoming more challenging to protect as it grows across multiple clouds, APEX Backup Services provides end-to-end scalable, secure data protection with centralised monitoring and management for SaaS applications, endpoints and hybrid workloads.

This SaaS-based offering can be deployed in minutes and scale on-demand to protect growing workloads, Dell states.

Resilient security capabilities help protect against cyber attacks with instant detection, rapid response and accelerated recovery.

Building on Dell’s data protection cloud offerings - protecting nearly nine exabytes of customer data in public clouds - the company will extend its storage portfolio with Project Alpine.

This effort will bring the software IP of Dell’s flagship block and file storage platforms to leading public clouds.

Customers will be able to purchase storage software as a managed service using existing cloud credits, taking advantage of a consistent storage experience from on-premises to public clouds and easily sharing data across multiple clouds.

Dell Technologies aims to speed productivity for its cloud ecosystem with new DevOps-ready platforms and refreshed developer portal.

Building on partnerships with key cloud vendors including Amazon, Microsoft, Google, IBM/Red Hat and VMware to offer a broad range of DevOps-ready platforms, Dell is adding increased support for Kubernetes including:

  • Amazon EKS Anywhere on PowerFlex and PowerStore, allowing organisations to run their Kubernetes orchestration across public or on-premises clouds.
  • SUSE Rancher on VxRail, providing multi-cluster, multi cloud Kubernetes management and giving customers the flexibility to choose their cloud orchestration platform.

Dell is expanding its Dell Technologies Developer portal to serve as a one-stop shop for application developers and DevOps teams looking to provide infrastructure as code. The portal will provide continual access to the latest Dell APIs, SDKs, modules and plug-ins, the company states.
