      Experience multicloud by design

      Organizations love the agility and efficient service delivery of the cloud operating model. However, managing multiple incompatible public clouds in a siloed multicloud environment can be complex, with dispersed workloads and data making it difficult to mitigate risk, maximize performance, and control costs, while ensuring overall efficiency and productivity.

      To overcome the complexities and constraints of multicloud by default, Dell APEX delivers multicloud by design, empowering you to optimize the placement of data and workloads for maximum value within your organization. We collaborate with public cloud providers to simplify operations across your multicloud landscape. And we bring the agility of the cloud operating model to you – across our broad portfolio – with modern consumption experiences, including as-a-Service and pay-as-you-go subscriptions, to help reduce costs and free up your IT teams to accelerate innovation.

    • Bring together the best of both worlds

      • Ground to cloud

        Deploy best-of-breed Dell software innovations in the public clouds

        Organizations increasingly seek greater control over the ever-expanding amount of data in both public clouds and on-premises infrastructure. Dell Technologies offers data storage and protection solutions in both environments with a consistent management experience.

        The Dell APEX multicloud by design approach leverages a ground-to-cloud strategy that brings familiar best-of-breed software from on-premises Dell infrastructure to the public clouds. As a result, your IT teams can leverage the same enterprise-class functionality, performance, and resiliency they already trust on-premises in a public cloud, while benefiting from seamless management. This enhances data mobility and operational consistency across environments, boosting your IT teams' efficiency by further extending their skill sets without the need for additional training.

        In addition, Dell APEX backup services, delivered via software-as-a-Service, provides all-in-one secure protection, disaster recovery, and long-term data retention while eliminating infrastructure management.

        Extend your choice of modern cloud software to on-premises environments

        Managing applications in a diverse multicloud environment presents challenges that demand a fresh approach, involving the adoption of cloud-native solutions and the simplification of traditional application modernization. Dell APEX multicloud by design comprises a cloud-to-ground strategy that extends the cloud and container orchestration ecosystem of your choice to on-premises environments with modern cloud software on trusted Dell infrastructure.

        The Dell APEX portfolio of integrated cloud platforms provides enhanced workload mobility and operational consistency across environments, while enabling you to run cloud-native applications on-premises to help meet security, compliance, and performance requirements. With support for both virtualized and containerized applications, IT can enable developers to "build once and deploy anywhere" using the software they prefer in the environment of their choice. This enhances workload agility and empowers unrestrained innovation , regardless of where applications and data live.

      • Cloud Platforms

    • as-a-service

      Bring simplified cloud experiences on-premises with as-a-Service

      Organizations continue to rely on dedicated infrastructure in on-premises environments because not all applications and data are suitable for public cloud implementation. Nonetheless, the cloud operating model enables rapid deployment of technology, flexible scalability, and payment over time through subscription-based services. The Dell APEX multicloud by design approach delivers the benefits of both by leveraging the ease and agility of the cloud experience on-premises – on your choice of products across our client and infrastructure portfolio – to maintain control of your environment and deliver differentiated outcomes tailored to meet your objectives.

      Dell APEX subscriptions streamline the lifecycle of traditional infrastructure, from deployment to support to decommissioning – with optional managed services that deliver what you need as-a-Service. This enables your IT teams to dedicate more time on urgent priorities. Dell APEX infrastructure, platform, and solution subscriptions help reduce IT workload, accelerate deployment, decrease operating costs, and manage end-of-life assets securely and sustainably.

      Dell APEX subscriptions for compute, HCI, storage, data protection, and client devices are available worldwide from Dell and our global ecosystem of partners, delivering cloud adjacent solutions with simultaneous multicloud connectivity, along with a comprehensive range of hosting, outsourcing, and application management services.

      Align costs with usage through a modern pay-per-use consumption model

      With traditional procurement models, forecasting future workloads is challenging and can result in over- or under-provisioning, leading to wasted resources or unwanted downtime and the associated costs.

      Dell APEX pay-per-use subscriptions help you align costs with actual use by pre-deploying buffer capacity to help reduce the cost of over-provisioning and the risk of under-provisioning. You can elastically scale capacity up and down within the buffer, paying only for the capacity you use at one consistent rate with no overage fees.

      Dell APEX enables you create your own on-demand environment. You can implement a pay-per-use subscription on the Dell infrastructure product of your choice or create a usage-based managed utility ecosystem. These solutions are supported across our infrastructure portfolio and available through Dell and our worldwide network of partners.
