Businesses want to innovate with data, which requires them to address the challenges of operational silos, cybersecurity threats, developer productivity and cloud complexity. We believe what our customers need is a continuous modern storage experience and the only way to truly provide that is with software-driven innovation. We’re delivering more than 500 new high-value software features in Dell PowerStore, PowerMax and PowerFlex. Organizations tell us they have a major focus on automation and simplified IT operations – so they can boost productivity, reduce risk and be ready for what’s next. Our software enhancements deliver intelligent automation across the storage portfolio for these critical AIOps initiatives. Highly adaptable software architectures are the key to making this happen.
Then there’s ransomware – a real threat that all businesses are facing, and Dell Technologies software innovations have you covered. Dell CloudIQ, our AIOps application, improves the security of PowerMax, the world’s most secure mission-critical storage. The solution looks for signatures to see whether firmware was compromised, supports multi-factor authentication and draws attention to potentially suspicious changes in metrics such as data compression rates in near real-time. Dell data protection incorporates the three key principles of isolation, intelligence and immutability, with a dedicated cyber recovery vault.
Equally important is creating more value from on-premises data in the cloud. Dell storage software supports multi-cloud by design, giving you more control over on-premises, colocation and cloud data with cloud-enabled storage and data protection software. Our Project Alpine demonstrated how industry-leading Dell block, file and object storage becomes software-enabled on AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. And when our customers move data to the cloud for archiving and data retention, they experience costs savings of up to 80% per GB.
