Enterprises today rely more than ever on the Cloud. As Cloud services proliferate, IT teams are adopting multiple public and private Cloud infrastructures to meet the needs of a variety of workloads. While this multi-cloud infrastructure offers distinct advantages, it also creates management headaches – especially for Cloud data storage. Administrators are often required to continually switch between platforms as they manage multi-cloud storage infrastructure, incurring additional costs, added complexity and a good deal of risk.

Cloud storage services help to avoid vendor lock-in as data is independent of the Cloud
Cloud data storage is a technology for storing data in which data is transmitted via the Internet and stored on remote systems that may span multiple servers and locations. Cloud storage may be delivered by a service provider or installed on premises in a company’s own data center, or some combination of both.
What is Cloud object storage?
Cloud object storage is a format for storing data in the Cloud, where data is managed as objects that contain data, metadata and a global identifier. Object storage is ideal for Cloud applications because of its ability to scale massively and for its accessibility through common APIs.
What is hybrid Cloud storage?
Hybrid Cloud storage is a way of managing Cloud storage that relies on both on-premises and off-site storage resources. Hybrid Cloud storage connects on-premises systems with Cloud storage and can be managed as a single, homogenous storage solution.
Dell Technologies Cloud Validated Designs bring Cloud capabilities to demanding workloads, driving improved performance, faster time to value, and Cloud investment protection.
