A hybrid cloud infrastructure is an ideal option for enterprises seeking to extract the most value from their cloud investments. Combining public, private and edge clouds, a hybrid cloud enables workloads from traditional and next-generation applications to be run on the optimal platform to improve performance, reduce costs, address geo-specific needs and manage technical requirements.
Hybrid cloud infrastructure, however, can be enormously complex. The average organization today works with five cloud service providers, resulting in challenges such as complex workload migrations, diverse management tools, operational silos, inconsistent SLAs and uncertain security postures.
Dell Technologies Cloud combines the power of VMware software and Dell EMC infrastructure to provide simplified management and a consistent operating model hybrid cloud infrastructure. With Dell Technologies Cloud, organizations can unify environments, reduce and maximize the value of cloud investments.
Integrating public, private and edge cloud platforms, a hybrid cloud infrastructure is the optimal architecture for enterprises today. While the public cloud offers considerable benefits over traditional IT environments, organizations have realized that adding private and edge clouds to their cloud strategy provides greater flexibility for aligning IT resources with the needs of specific workloads.
A public cloud provides a highly scalable compute solution that allows enterprises to avoid the capital expense and resources of purchasing, installing and managing hardware, opting instead for a pay-as-you-go operational expense model. Public cloud offerings provide access to critical technologies like real-time analytics, serverless computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning and many enterprises today rely on multiple public cloud technologies.
While enterprises appreciate the agility and scalability of public cloud platforms, many organizations rely on private cloud platforms for applications where security, data locality, data governance and low latency are business critical. The ability of edge cloud solutions to decentralize and distribute processing tasks is enabling organizations to reduce costs and provide more low-latency experiences.
As a result, IT teams in many organizations today are managing a hybrid cloud infrastructure that comprises multiple cloud platforms. Each platform has its own tools and processes that require a different set of skills and training needs, creating additional complexity as well as higher costs for management and staff resources. Without a way to unify incompatible silos of infrastructure, hybrid cloud environments can also limit the organization’s ability to scale and innovate.
Dell Technologies Cloud and VMware provide a platform that simplifies the management of hybrid cloud infrastructure. By providing a single operational hub for a consistent management experience across all clouds, Dell Technologies Cloud reduces complexity and operational costs to help organizations achieve their goals with greater agility, efficiency and speed.
