Overview


  • Subscribe to workload instances in a few clicks

    Dell Technologies Cloud Platform (DTCP) delivers application-ready cloud infrastructure with pre-configured instance-based offerings supporting a wide range of enterprise workloads running on virtual machines or containers.

    In a few clicks, you can subscribe to instances designed for your workloads through the Dell Technologies Cloud Console — and get it deployed in your data center, co-location facility and edge locations in as few as 14 days2. With a simple way to size and order on-premises cloud resources, this enables you to focus on your applications instead of infrastructure procurement and upgrades. 

    Now you can develop, test and run both cloud native and traditional applications on a single platform to deliver a simple path to on-premises cloud through automated operations.

HOW IT WORKS


  •  

    Quickly and easily order what you need for your workloads

    Choose from a wide range of pre-configured hybrid cloud solutions designed for your workload requirements and order through the Dell Technologies Cloud Console. All subscription offers are available with a 1- or 3-year term — where hardware, software and services (deployment, rack integration, support, asset recovery) components are included in a single monthly price. This also means you have a single point of contact for support and a technical team who’s dedicated to your environment and business. 

    With a simple way to size and order on-premises cloud resources, you can focus on your applications instead of procurement. You can also contact Dell Technologies to create a customized configuration designed for your unique application needs.


  • Deliver IT projects faster


  •  

    Browse, order and manage cloud services with the Cloud Console

    The Dell Technologies Cloud Console is a brand-new online platform that delivers a unified and seamless experience, enabling you to more easily manage your on-premises cloud journey. With just a few clicks, you can browse a marketplace of cloud products, services and solutions, and then order a cloud solution built for your business. Through the console, you can deploy workloads, manage your multi-cloud resources, monitor your costs in real-time and procure additional resources — as your business demands.

  • Deploy instances designed for your enterprise workloads

    Instances are standardized combinations of compute, memory, storage and networking resources — powered by Dell EMC VxRail and optimized for virtualized and containerized workloads. Additionally, we offer special purpose instance types with Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) from Nvidia™ to address artificial intelligence/machine learning and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.

    They are optimized to fit your different use cases and range from small (4GB) to extra-large (32GB) memory-to-CPU core ratios for virtualized and containerized workloads. Instances are offered in quantities (i.e. blocks) of 50, 100, 200 and 500 [instances], enabling you to scale your cloud deployment to meet the requirements of your workloads. Instance blocks can be added together to run a larger quantity of instances of the same type, or you can mix and match in order to support multiple different workloads within the same solution.

    It's now easy to make the right choice for your business outcomes with an intuitive selection of cloud solutions aligned to your enterprise workloads.

    Instance Type Compute Optimized General Purpose Memory Optimized Large-Scale Memory Optimized  Accelerator Optimized (GPU)
    Memory-to-Core Ratio 4GB 8GB 16GB 32GB 16GB
    Description Compute optimized instances deliver high performance for running workloads that are compute intensive. General purpose instances offer a balance of compute, memory and storage resources that are ideal for workloads using these resources in equal proportions. With a high memory-to-core ratio, memory optimized instances deliver fast performance for workloads that process large data sets in memory. With an extra high memory-to-core ratio, these heavy-duty instances deliver fast performance for workloads that process large data sets in memory. By using hardware accelerators, these computing instances are ideal for machine learning, graphic-intensive and compute-intensive applications.
    Application Examples Mainstream webservers, batch processing apps, network appliances, high performance computing (HPC), Media encoding servers. Low-medium traffic webservers, databases application servers, network appliances, CI/CD pipeline servers. High performance relational databases (Oracle, Microsoft SQL, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, SAP etc.), midsize in-memory databases (Ex: SAP/HANA, etc.), data mining, web scale in-memory caches (Memcached).
