Dell Technologies’ Future will Highly Rely on its Multi-Cloud Services

Dell Technologies is using multi-cloud strategies to place its workloads and application development where they would be most effective.

Dell Technologies has announced multi-cloud capabilities that provide a uniform experience regardless of where programs and data are stored. Dell Infrastructure also adds additional services and tools to assist developers to pick the ideal cloud environment while maintaining the security, support, and predictable pricing of Dell infrastructure.

The multi-cloud framework has enabled most enterprises to make use of the cloud's benefits without being bound to a single provider while keeping prices reasonable. While the multi-cloud gives them more freedom in managing their workflows and other tasks, there's no disputing that its appealing pricing is a big reason why companies choose it. Although choosing multi-cloud is less expensive, the fact is that complexity that comes with this option is something that most firms are only realizing after making this decision. Multi-cloud has numerous benefits and maybe a game-changer for companies in their transformation journey. Getting all of the data and workloads housed on various servers, however, is a challenge.

Operational complexity, inconsistency, and various siloed IT environments are all common trade-offs in the multi-cloud paradigm. These issues jeopardize some of the cloud's primary benefits, posing efficiency, financial, security, and competitive threats. As a result, IT organizations want solutions that enable them to offset these trade-offs to provide a genuinely integrated experience across all of their environments, allowing them to pick where and how they operate based on what is best for the company rather than the operational location.

"As data becomes more spread across on-premises and colocation data canters, various public clouds and edge settings, today's multi-cloud reality is difficult," said Jeff Boudreau, president, of Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell Technologies. "We have the industry's widest technology portfolio, consistent tools, expertise developing open ecosystems, and industry-leading data storage capabilities, services, and supply chain. All of this puts Dell in a unique position to assist clients to manage their multi-cloud strategy."

Michael Dell, CEO of Dell Technologies, stated in his keynote talk at Dell Technologies World 2022 (DTW) that the argument between on-prem and off-prem is over. Multi-cloud, he believes, is the way of the future, with workloads and data moving effortlessly across the whole ecosystem. According to Dell, 90 percent of customers now have both on-premises and public cloud environments. And seventy-five percent use three or more distinct clouds.

Organizations require solutions to address the challenges of different environments and organizational requirements. Here are three things to think about if you want to maximize the benefits of multi-cloud:

Consider going beyond public clouds to bring the cloud's speed and agility to any location

Organizations are increasingly turning to cloud and services-based infrastructure because of the speed and agility it provides in meeting changing business demands and responding rapidly to change. Furthermore, many are managing both on-premises and cloud systems, with an increasing number of applications in co-located or edge locations. Organizations require the capacity to swiftly grow to meet demand and aim to enhance their operational flexibility by employing a pay as you go services to be able to pivot fast to answer rapidly changing company demands or market changes. Most crucially, they require adaptability regardless of location, whether in a private or public cloud, a co-lo, or at the edge. Many businesses see multi-cloud as a way to take advantage of new technologies.

With a consistent toolkit, you can manage the complexity of multi-cloud

The majority of businesses currently use several public and private cloud platforms, with 92 percent claiming to have a multi-cloud strategy and 82 percent using a hybrid cloud. While this might lead to more agile and speedier development, it can also lead to more complexity. As a result, businesses may face a slew of issues, including policy enforcement, security, compliance, cost management, and maintaining service levels. Organizations confront the problems of managing and operating different systems, as well as having specialist personnel educated and up to date, with multiple platforms to handle. Because all control planes and toolsets are centralized, teams just have to learn one tool and apply it everywhere, reducing complexity and operational strain.

Defend against single points of failure in the future

As more businesses rely on the public cloud, the risk of unplanned events—outages, natural disasters, criminal actors, or just plain old human error—increases. Protecting against single points of failure is more important than ever. Organizations desire the freedom and flexibility to run their workloads wherever they choose, which might include using several public or private clouds for redundancy and mobility. This also adds to the protection against vendor lock-in. While some firms have found it straightforward to migrate their data to the cloud, others have found it difficult to repatriate data or relocate to another cloud.

Dell Technologies is also improving software throughout its industry-leading storage portfolio, resulting in improved intelligence, automation, cyber resiliency, and multi-cloud flexibility.

Customers desire the convenience and agility of the cloud experience everywhere they operate, not just in the public cloud, according to Sam Grocott, Senior Vice President of Dell Technologies Business Unit (DTBU) Marketing in a blog post. As a result, the DTW announcements will provide enterprises the option to choose, allowing them to fully realize the multi-cloud potential.

Dell has extended its cooperation with AWS by announcing CyberSense for Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS. Adaptive analytics, scanning metadata, and whole files, as well as machine learning and forensic technologies, will enable organizations to find, diagnose, and speed up data recovery. It can also monitor files and databases for signs of a cyberattack and retrieve the last known incorruptible copy of data for a faster, more secure, and confidential recovery.
