    • Choosing the right hybrid cloud vendor

    • Managing multiple clouds is no easy feat. The average business today works with five different cloud providers, each with its own management framework and set of tools. For IT teams, this means constantly shifting between diverse platforms as they manage workloads across public, private and edge cloud resources. The result is chaotic, with unpredictable costs, inconsistent security, multiple SLAs and a complicated management system that hinders productivity and slows innovation.

      Moving to a hybrid cloud environment can help by providing a common set of tools for managing all clouds. But hybrid clouds are inherently complex to deploy and manage. Successful hybrid cloud deployment depends on choosing the right cloud company. A premier provider must offer a solution that delivers consistent services, infrastructure and operations . That’s why, when choosing a hybrid cloud vendor, more enterprises today look to Dell Technologies.

    • The challenge of managing multiple clouds

    • Over the past decade, enterprises have embraced the cloud wholeheartedly for the flexibility, scalability and cost savings it provides. As the number of business cloud solutions has multiplied exponentially, IT teams have adopted multiple solutions, allowing them to choose the best cloud company for each type of workload. This multicloud strategy has enabled enterprises to optimally deploy business-critical and next-generation cloud-based applications, and to navigate digital transformation more easily.

      At the same time, most enterprises have retained some workloads on-premises, taking advantage of the security and control that private cloud infrastructure provide. Private clouds offer greater insight into infrastructure, making it easier to manage data governance and data locality concerns. And certain workloads that require low-latency performance are managed more easily from on-premise cloud technology.

      For all the benefits of a multicloud architecture, there are significant downsides as well. The lack of consistency across platforms is the most significant challenge. IT teams are forced to work with disconnected processes, platforms and tools that significantly increase complexity. As a result, multicloud strategies may not scale easily, as organizations become burdened with incompatible silos of information and greater operational expense.

      To solve this dilemma, many enterprises are looking to a hybrid cloud infrastructure that unifies diverse cloud products and platforms on a common management plane. A hybrid cloud gives administrators a common set of tools that mitigates the complexity of managing multiple clouds while simplifying the task of moving data and applications between platforms. And while there are many providers claiming to have solutions that represent the fastest path to hybrid cloud, Dell Technologies is the only cloud company with the experience, expertise, hardware, software and services to truly tame the complexity of hybrid cloud and enable a swift and easy implementation.

    • FAQs: What is a cloud company?

    • What is cloud computing?

      Cloud computing provides access to highly scalable IT resources over the internet with a pay-as-you-go pricing model. Rather than installing and managing servers, storage, applications, databases, networking and other computing resources on premises, enterprises can access resources from a cloud company on an as-needed basis, paying only for the resources they consume. Cloud computing enables extraordinary scalability, high availability and lower IT costs, while relieving IT teams from the need to manage infrastructure.
