How do you operate, manage and monitor your cloud infrastructure to increase efficiency? Ever-changing organizational strategies, the need to manage multiple vendors and the pace of innovation require more than traditional IT practices and management.
 Talk to Dell about Cloud Computing.

Dell helps you improve service delivery between the device and the data center by managing and monitoring performance through automation and proactively identifying, reporting and resolving issues. Our end-to-end perspective on operating cloud platforms ensures you continue to use your existing processes and investments, rather than doing a rip and replace.

What is cloud computing? The strategy behind the technology

A cohesive cloud strategy that drives successful business outcomes relies on collaboration between IT staff and executives. Just as IT cannot act as a silo within the business, cloud computing cannot function as a silo within IT.

Other cloud providers’ proprietary technologies require that you adjust your IT environment to their capabilities. A long-term strategy demands an infrastructure that is open and can adapt as your business and IT priorities change.

Dell’s approach to designing and implementing an open cloud strategy focuses on business and cultural expectations. We believe:

  • Cloud computing is not a technology, it's a strategy. Cloud computing is part of an overall strategy to accelerate growth, empower your workforce and transform your business. We are committed to developing solutions that match your business vision and that drive it forward with maximum flexibility and minimum risk.

  • Cloud computing should adapt to you, not you to it. Most businesses are already on the cloud journey, but each has unique needs and obstacles. We work with you and your staff to match your strategy to the right cloud solutions — without disrupting your business.

  • Cloud computing works best when it integrates seamlessly. Our approach is not to rip and replace, but rather to make use of existing investments and build from the current state. We see cloud computing as a logical progression to what organizations are already doing, and a way for businesses to build on technologies and processes already in place.

Offering flexible, integrated and secure cloud solutions

Dell has been part of cloud computing's evolution from the beginning. Today more than 50 percent of all public and private clouds run on Dell hardware. Our infrastructure delivers digital maps to mobile users, cloud email to lawyers, and more than six billion diagnostic images securely to hospitals and physicians.

Using a solutions approach, Dell helps you get more out of your cloud environment with the flexibility to adapt on your terms. Dell cloud solutions eliminate risks from proprietary architectures and enable you to innovate in-house based on your specific needs. Dell delivers the support, reference architectures and deployment framework to help make you successful.

Manage the future
Dell makes it easy to build and manage the cloud so that it keeps pace as your business strategies or processes change. You can create the path you need today and implement without worrying about exit strategies and vendor lock-in risks.

Dell brings the cloud down to earth with an end-to-end portfolio of services and solutions. We believe in creating simple solutions that make the cloud work for you — not the other way around.
