'It's hybrid done right': Dell Technologies targets hybrid cloud market with Dell Technologies Cloud
Dell Technologies made its claim on the hybrid cloud market on Monday, unveiling the Dell Technologies Cloud platform.
At its annual Dell Technologies World conference, the Texas-headquartered firm said that its new set of cloud infrastructure solutions will "make hybrid cloud environments simpler to deploy and manage."
During his keynote speech, Jeff Clarke, Vice Chairman of Products and Operations, described it as “hybrid done right”.
Research from VMware found that 83% of cloud adopters are seeking consistent infrastructure and operations from the data centre to the cloud.
The Dell Technologies Cloud hopes to address this challenge by combining Dell EMC systems and VMware's Cloud Foundations platform to reduce the complexity of managing multiple clouds whether public, private or at the edge.
Matt Baker, Senior Vice President, Dell EMC Strategy and Planning, said he believed the Dell Technologies Cloud platform “really delivers on what our customers are looking for: a consistent operational environment that allows them to leverage the power of on-premise, off-premise investments that deliver a true hybrid cloud platform for their business.”
Dell Technologies Cloud portfolio also includes a new Data Center-as-a-Service offering, VMware Cloud on Dell EMC, which delivers a public cloud delivery model to on-premises and edge locations
“For many organizations, the increasingly diverse cloud landscape is resulting in an enormous amount of IT complexity, and no one is more qualified or capable to help customers solve this challenge than Dell Technologies,” concluded Clarke.
“Cloud is not a destination; it’s an operating model. With Dell Technologies Cloud and joint engineering between Dell EMC and VMware, we are offering a unified hybrid cloud experience.
“This provides consistent infrastructure and operations at every location the cloud resides—from on-premises data centres to public clouds and the emerging edge—allowing our customers to have greater control of their multi-cloud journey.”
