Enterprises today are moving from a multi-cloud strategy to a hybrid Cloud infrastructure, seeking greater control and coordination of Cloud resources. Where a multi-Cloud environment offers access to a wealth of disconnected Cloud resources, a hybrid Cloud is intended to enable public and private Cloud resources to work together to manage workloads and Cloud services more easily. The challenge is finding a solution that can simplify management of hybrid Cloud infrastructure, eliminating operational silos and providing a consistent operations experience that offers greater control of a fully integrated Cloud platform.
Dell Technologies Cloud provides a suite of Cloud services that deliver a consistent management experience for hybrid Cloud infrastructure. With Dell Technologies Cloud, IT teams can rely on the expertise of Dell technologies to simplify operations and management across private Cloud, public Clouds and edge locations.
As Cloud infrastructure has evolved over the past decade, enterprises have adopted multiple public, private and edge Cloud platforms to manage a wide variety of workloads. The ability to align the needs of certain workloads with the benefits of specific Cloud resources enables the enterprise to increase application performance while reducing costs.
The problem with this multi-cloud strategy is that it inevitably increases the complexity of managing Cloud services. Private Clouds and public Clouds all have unique sets of tools and processes, increasing the difficulty of managing deployments across multiple platforms. A hybrid Cloud architecture is designed to address these differences, aligning resources to work together to increase efficiency and productivity.
But managing hybrid Cloud solutions remains a challenge. Most solutions for managing hybrid Clouds lack the level of integration and optimization that must occur for every element in a hybrid infrastructure, leaving a number of operational silos that mitigate the full value of a hybrid Cloud.
Fortunately, Dell Technologies Cloud provides a suite of solutions that can eliminate silos, improve Cloud economics and provide a consistent management experience across all Clouds. With Dell Technologies Cloud, enterprises can enjoy the benefits of single-vendor support and the versatility and control of a fully integrated Cloud platform.
Dell Technologies Cloud is a jointly engineered effort, using Dell Technologies hardware to simplify deployment and lifecycle management of hybrid Cloud environments. VMware Cloud Foundation provides software-defined services for compute, storage, networking and security as well as Cloud management to run traditional or containerized apps in private or public Cloud environments. Dell Technologies hyperconverged infrastructure platform, VCF on VxRail, can scale easily to support the most demanding workloads and applications. Together, these technologies enable rapid and simple deployments of hybrid Cloud environments.
Dell Technologies Cloud comprises several Cloud solutions that include:

Along with Dell Technologies Cloud, Dell Technologies offers additional Cloud solutions to modernize IT operations, protect data and applications, and minimize the complexity of multi-cloud environments.
What is Cloud infrastructure?
Cloud infrastructure is the collection of servers, storage, networks, related components and facilities required to provide Cloud computing resources to users or enterprises via the Internet.
Hybrid Cloud infrastructure is a combination of two or more public, private or edge Clouds that are connected by standardized technology that makes it easier to orchestrate workloads across multiple platforms.
What are the challenges of managing hybrid Cloud infrastructure?
When enterprises adopt multiple Cloud solutions, the task of managing them can be complex and chaotic. Each platform has its own set of tools and processes, requiring different skillsets. As a result, IT teams can experience added costs, loss of productivity, greater exposure to risk and slower time-to-market.
