• Elastic Cloud Computing

    • Manage cloud services with greater ease

    • The elastic nature of cloud services has provided enterprises with incredible flexibility in consuming resources for computing, storage, infrastructure and more. With access to a rapidly growing ecosphere of cloud products on-demand, enterprises have been able to achieve the agility, scalability and cost savings required to increase competitiveness and fuel digital transformation.

      Managing a wide variety of diverse elastic cloud services has proven increasingly difficult and costly. Dell Technologies Cloud provides a solution that significantly simplifies management of cloud resources across public and private infrastructure and edge locations. With Dell Technologies Cloud, enterprises can deploy a true hybrid cloud computing model that delivers the simplicity, flexibility and economics of elastic cloud services with the security, control and reliability of private cloud infrastructure.

    • The benefits of elastic cloud technology

    • Dell Technologies elastic cloud offerings have dramatically changed the way that enterprises conceive of consuming computing resources. Elastic cloud services enable IT teams to quickly and easily add or release processing, memory and storage resources as business needs require, while paying only for the resources they consume.

      This fundamental transformation of enterprise computing offers enormous benefits.

      • Easy scalability. With on-demand computing resources, IT teams can quickly provision the exact services and infrastructure they need to support the business.
      • Reduced costs. Enterprises can reduce IT budgets by paying only for the resources they consume, and by avoiding the need for capital investments in IT infrastructure.
      • Greater redundancy. With easy access to off-site computing resources, IT teams can take advantage of more flexible, reliable and affordable backup and recovery solutions.
      • More capacity. Elastic cloud storage services provide virtually unlimited storage capacity.
      • High availability. With the ability to add resources and redundancy as needed, it’s easy to avoid unnecessary slowdowns or service interruptions.
      • Easier management. With cloud services, IT teams no longer need to worry about deploying, maintaining and upgrading individual pieces of IT infrastructure.

      To take advantage of these benefits, many enterprises have adopted multiple cloud services, allowing specific workloads to run on the cloud resources that can deliver optimal performance and economics. But the need to manage multiple and diverse cloud solutions is taking its toll on IT teams. With no common infrastructure, operations or management experience among multiple cloud services, IT administrators can quickly be overwhelmed by the complexity of managing cloud architecture and migrating workloads between public, private and edge cloud resources.

      The result is added cost, lost productivity and limits on the promise of innovation that brought enterprises to the cloud in the first place.

      To move forward, enterprises need a solution that enables a true hybrid cloud infrastructure, where elastic public cloud resources, private cloud infrastructure and edge locations can be easily managed with a common set of tools and infrastructure. That’s why more enterprises today are turning to solutions from Dell Technologies.

    • Elastic Cloud Storage

    • Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) is the industry’s leading object-storage platform that has been engineered to support both traditional and next-generation workloads. With ECS, enterprises can store and manage unstructured data with public cloud-like scalability and flexibility while maintaining complete control over data to reduce security and compliance risks.

      With a flat, scale-out architecture and strong global consistency, ECS helps to achieve the near-infinite scale of the public cloud at a total cost of ownership that is nearly 60% lower than public cloud solutions. ECS also offers deep multiprotocol support — including support for object, file and HDFS storage — along with advanced capabilities for data protection, data integrity and data security.

    • FAQs: What is elastic cloud computing?

    • What is elastic cloud computing?

      In cloud computing, elasticity is defined as "the degree to which a system is able to adapt to workload changes by provisioning and de-provisioning resources in an autonomic manner, such that at each point in time the available resources match the current demand as closely as possible".

      What is Elastic Cloud Storage?

      Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) is the leading object-storage platform from Dell Technologies. ECS supports both traditional and next-generation workloads and can be deployed as a software-defined model or as a turnkey appliance. ECS enables organizations to capture, store, protect and manage unstructured data at public cloud-like scale while managing it behind the enterprise firewall.
