Cloud networking is transforming how organizations connect users, customers, data, workloads and digital experiences. By providing access to virtual routers, firewalls, bandwidth and network management resources via the internet, cloud networking simplifies and automates functions while increasing uptime, improving service and reducing costs.
For IT teams, managing cloud networking has grown more complicated as enterprises adopt a growing number of cloud technologies and environments. This complexity results in added costs, slower migrations and limits on the innovation that enterprises need to stay competitive.
Dell Technologies Cloud offers an answer: a set of cloud infrastructure solutions for hybrid cloud environments that dramatically simplify the task of managing multiple cloud resources.
Dell Technologies Cloud can help modernize your data center, unify hybrid cloud operations, build modern cloud apps and scale or migrate cloud workloads.
The era of traditional networks is over. Increasingly, business services and customer experiences are delivered through the cloud. Users connect to cloud services via multiple devices, while applications are run on distributed infrastructure made possible by cloud computing. Traditional networks — with physical computers, servers, routers and switches — can no longer deliver the speed, scalability, reliability or security that cloud computing requires.
Cloud networking provides access to virtualized infrastructure – routers, firewalls, bandwidth and management software — required for building, managing and optimizing networks. By automating functions such as maintenance, updating and patching, virtual networks can run more efficiently while scaling with ease. Cloud security policies can be deployed easily and enforced across the network, and network reliability can be significantly improved.
But as enterprises adopt Cloud networking solutions and other elastic cloud technologies, IT teams are faced with a Cloud management problem. With each new cloud platform, IT administrators must use a different set of tools for managing and configuring services, making it difficult to toggle between environments efficiently and securely. Migrating workloads between platforms becomes far more complicated, causing migrations that should take hours or days to last weeks or months instead. As a result, enterprises are missing out on the benefits that drew them to cloud services initially.
As a leading cloud company, Dell Technologies Cloud solves the challenge of managing cloud networking and multiple cloud resources by making it easier to deploy and manage a hybrid cloud. Dell Technologies Cloud provides the simplicity, flexibility and economics of public cloud with the security, control and reliability of private cloud infrastructure — anywhere from the edge to data centers. A broad portfolio of services helps enterprises formulate a cloud strategy that aligns with business goals.
