As organizations look to overcome barriers to hybrid cloud adoption, finding suitable cloud storage options is a critical priority. Hybrid cloud environments are designed to provide greater application and data portability, allowing IT teams to move workloads to the cloud resources that can best improve performance and reduce costs. Achieving this flexibility requires hybrid cloud storage solutions that can be managed easily, that provide flexible consumption options and that can be integrated with both public and private cloud infrastructure.
As a leading provider of hybrid cloud solutions, Dell Technologies offers powerful cloud storage options that enable a simpler and faster path to hybrid cloud deployment.
Dell Technologies Cloud Storage Services combine cost effective, scalable and resilient data storage with native public clouds.
Dell Technologies Cloud Validated Designs bring cloud capabilities to demanding workloads, driving improved performance, faster time to value and cloud investment protection.
Simplify, streamline and automate cloud operations with Dell Technologies Cloud — the industry's fastest hybrid cloud deployment.
Dell Technologies Cloud is a solution jointly engineered with VMware that makes hybrid cloud environments easier to deploy and manage. Built on VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF), Dell Technologies Cloud is a set of infrastructure solutions that provides a single operational hub to simplify management of private clouds, public clouds and edge locations. IT teams can deploy workloads and manage storage on premises or via cloud environments, taking advantage of a variety of consumption options.
In addition to a cloud platform and Data Center-as-a-Service solution, Dell Technologies Cloud provides Validated Designs that offer best-of-breed Dell Technologies storage technologies, along with compute and networking solutions. These technologies are pre-tested and validated to work with VCF, allowing organizations to meet varied demands of workloads with independent scaling of compute and storage resources.
Dell EMC Unity XT and PowerMax cloud storage solutions are available as Validated Designs for hybrid and multi-cloud storage deployment.
Dell EMC Unity XT provides a midrange storage solution that’s built to deliver unified storage speed and efficiency for a multi-cloud world. Unity XT All-Flash and hybrid flash arrays are designed for performance, providing high-speed access to data with a modern architecture that is NVMe-ready. A 5:1 data reduction ratio provides more effective capacity and flexible cloud consumption options make Unity XT ideal for storage in cloud deployments.
Dell EMC PowerMax is the world’s fastest data storage array, offering end-to-end NVMe, storage class memory, real-time machine learning and bandwidth up to 350 GB per second. With PowerMax, IT teams can consolidate block, file, mainframe and IBM workloads along with modern, real-time analytics apps on a single array. A real-time machine learning engine automatically optimizes performance with no overhead. And in-line, global de-dupe and compression add extreme efficiency to the data center even when scaling.
Cloud storage services from Dell Technologies provide scalable, resilient cloud-attached storage with agile multi-cloud access. This Storage-as-a-Service solution is ideal for securely moving or deploying demanding applications in the cloud, including disaster recovery, analytics, test/dev applications and others. By freeing IT teams from system management, cloud storage services help to optimize costs while providing greater control over data.
Dell Technologies Cloud Storage Services enable enterprises to leverage their clouds of choice and switch between them at any time based on application needs and business requirements. Cloud storage services also enable enterprises to:
Additional solutions from Dell Technologies provide cloud-enabled solutions that help to modernize current IT operations.
Cloud storage is a technology for storing data that involves transmitting it via the internet to remote storage systems where it is stored, managed, backed up and made available to users as needed. Cloud storage may be delivered by a service provider or by a company’s own data center, or a combination of both.
What is cloud object storage?
Cloud object storage is a storage architecture that manages data as objects rather than files. Objects contain data, metadata and a unique global identifier. Object storage is preferred for cloud applications because it supports unlimited scalability, accessibility via common APIs, and the ability to use a namespace, which can span multiple instances of physical hardware.
What is hybrid cloud storage?
Hybrid cloud storage is a storage architecture that uses both on-premises and off-site cloud resources, enabling data administrators to use the hybrid architecture as a single storage space. Hybrid cloud storage enable enterprises to store data on the local or cloud storage device that will enable superior performance while reducing costs.
A hybrid cloud is a cloud environment that uses a combination of public, private and edge cloud resources. Hybrid cloud computing enables IT teams to choose the ideal cloud platform for each workload to improve application performance and reduce costs.
Dell Technologies Cloud can help modernize your data center, unify hybrid cloud operations, build modern cloud apps and scale or migrate cloud workloads.
Dell Technologies Cloud enables consistent cloud management across all major public, private and hybrid clouds with a single vendor experience.
Dell Technologies On Demand offers flexible, usage-based IT consumption models that lower cloud operation costs and speed deployment times.
