While the cloud has ushered in a new era of computing, it has also created a new wave of challenges. Enterprises today typically work with multiple public cloud technologies, creating significant integration and management burdens. The complexity of managing these multi-cloud environments has led many organizations to move workloads back to on-premises data centers, creating hybrid clouds that can potentially improve application and workload portability.
To manage this new infrastructure, enterprises need hybrid cloud solutions that offer consistent operations and infrastructure. That’s why so many enterprises today are turning to Dell Technologies Cloud for hybrid cloud solutions that simplify management, improve cloud economics and help to accelerate innovation.
As cloud technology has evolved, IT departments have increasingly been able to choose the best cloud solution for any given workload or application. As a result, many enterprises have adopted a multi-cloud infrastructure that includes public, private and edge cloud solutions.
Public cloud solutions provide access to shared cloud server, cloud storage and cloud networking capacity with a pay-as-you-go delivery model that enables rapid scalability. Public clouds also offer access to new technologies such as AI/ML, serverless computing and real-time cloud analytics.
Private clouds offer benefits in low-latency performance, tighter security, and easier management of data governance and data locality concerns. And edge cloud computing reduces costs and provides low-latency experiences by shifting processing power to the edge of the enterprise network.
While this diverse mix of technologies provides benefits in application and operational efficiency, it also creates added cost and additional management complexity, with inconsistent management tools, inconsistent security profiles, and inconsistent SLAs. To take advantage of multiple cloud technologies, enterprises need hybrid cloud solutions that offer a consistent operational experience for orchestrating workloads and portability between clouds with greater ease. That’s where Dell Technologies Cloud can help.

What is a hybrid cloud?
A hybrid cloud involves private cloud over structure and one or more public clouds that are bound together by a standardized management technology for greater data and application portability to enable, for example, cloud bursting or load-balancing between clouds.
What is multi-cloud architecture?
A multi-cloud architecture involves the use of multiple different public cloud services, and possibly private cloud infrastructure, but without technology for easily managing workload mobility between platforms.
What are hybrid cloud solutions?
Hybrid cloud solutions, like Dell Technologies Cloud, make it easier for IT teams to manage a hybrid cloud environment. Superior hybrid cloud solutions provide a common set of tools for managing all public, private and edge cloud resources, helping to improve efficiency, reduce risk and minimize the cost of managing hybrid clouds.
