    • Reduce the complexity of hybrid cloud computing

    • Hybrid cloud computing has become the de facto approach to IT environments today. Enterprises rely on a mix of public, private and edge cloud platforms to serve the needs of a variety of workloads. But this proliferation of cloud products often results in a chaotic management structure. As a result, hybrid cloud infrastructure is likely to come with higher management costs and require more IT resources. Ultimately, the complexity of hybrid cloud computing can slow the speed of innovation and make it difficult to scale. 

      APEX solves this challenge by providing a single, unified platform from which IT teams can manage all enterprise cloud technologies. Combining the expertise of VMware and Dell Technologies, this solution offers simplified management and a consistent operating model across private clouds, public clouds and edge locations while allowing application and business requirements to determine where workloads reside. 

    • The challenges of hybrid cloud infrastructure

    • Hybrid cloud computing enables IT teams to deploy workloads across public, private and edge cloud platforms, choosing best-of-breed solutions that are optimal for business-critical workloads. Public clouds provide pay-as-you-go, on-demand cloud computing resources as well as access to new technologies like serverless computing and real-life time analytics. Private clouds offer advantages in security, data governance and data locality, while edge cloud platforms provide decentralized processing that can help reduce costs while providing low-latency experiences.

      This hybrid approach to cloud computing offers benefits in application performance, cost savings, flexibility and scalability. But it also creates a management challenge: each cloud platform comes with its own tools and processes and requires a different set of skills. In addition to the time lost toggling between cloud platforms, managing multiple platforms can create more risk, increase the complexity of migrating workloads, raise operational costs, require new talent or additional training, reduce speed to market and inhibit innovation.

      To reap the benefits of hybrid cloud computing infrastructure, organizations must control the chaos of a hybrid infrastructure by adopting solutions for consistent operation and infrastructure virtualization. That’s precisely what you’ll find with APEX.

    • FAQs: What is cloud computing?

    • What is cloud computing?

      Cloud computing is an information technology model where on-demand computing resources (including networks, servers, storage, applications and services) are provided over the internet or a dedicated network, with payment based on usage.

      What are the advantages of cloud computing?

      Cloud computing enables IT teams to rapidly provision and release computing resources with minimal effort, increasing flexibility, reducing costs and allowing organizations to quickly scale up or down as needed.

      What is hybrid cloud computing?

      A hybrid cloud is a cloud environment that uses a combination of public, private and edge cloud resources. Hybrid cloud computing enables IT teams to choose the ideal cloud platform for each workload to improve application performance and reduce costs.
