With Flexible Consumption, Ramp Up Your Infrastructure on Your Terms

More options to help you build and ramp up your business the way you want to, according to your workloads.

Your IT transformation requires on-demand infrastructure to meet the demands for changing business needs and architecture.

A key portion of the budget is comprised of the planning for new infrastructure and the workload need for the business. You also have to take into account the length of projects and application lifecycles. These can range from temporary, legacy migrations and workload conversions to compute on-demand that has to support extra bandwidth for contracted projects. Consider the infrastructure needs for temporary projects: can you quickly ramp up bandwidth during the project and ramp down once done? Does the current scenario require you to buy extra hardware and setups to handle these tasks? Or do you have to research what other options are needed? While one approach has been to support new projects in a CAPEX manner, there are more choices now to help you support and manage these temporary to medium term large projects.

Dell Technologies Flexible Consumption solutions enable you to get the technology you need today to drive business outcomes and predict your IT spend. One of the Flexible consumption solutions include Flex on Demand, which helps you address business requirements with payments that scale up or down to match your usage.**
