    • Eliminate cloud chaos with consistent hybrid cloud solutions

    • Enterprises today have embraced the cloud wholeheartedly, and many deploy workloads across multiple public, private and edge cloud platforms. While this multicloud architecture enables enterprises to use best-of-breed solutions for each workload, it also creates a great deal of chaos and complexity. The lack of consistency across cloud solutions results in unpredictable costs, multiple management tools, inconsistent security posture and incompatible silos of infrastructure. 

      Dell Technologies solves the multicloud complexity with solutions that simplify operations and improve cloud economics through a consistent management experience across all clouds. With APEX, you can enjoy the benefits of single-vendor support along with the control and versatility of a fully integrated cloud platform.

    • The challenge of managing multiple cloud solutions

    • The cloud has become an integral part of enterprise IT, providing enormous benefits along with significant challenges. To address the needs of specific cloud workloads, enterprises have adopted multiple platforms – public, private and edge – to manage business-critical and next-generation workloads while fulfilling strategic objectives for digital transformation. 

      This multicloud infrastructure, however, has created new layers of complexity for IT teams. Individual cloud solutions come with their own set of tools, governance needs, security protocols and resource virtualizations. Inconsistent and disconnected processes, platforms and tools across platforms result in additional burden on IT teams and an increased total cost of ownership (TCO) for the enterprise. The added complexity creates new silos of operation and negatively impacts the pace of innovation.

      To control this cloud chaos, enterprises are turning to hybrid cloud solutions that provide consistent infrastructure and operations across all public, private and edge cloud platforms. With a superior and consistent hybrid cloud platform, enterprises can realize the benefits of cloud at scale, while minimizing management requirements and reducing TCO.
