The Multicloud Challenge

Enterprises moving to the cloud are increasingly taking advantage of public cloud services to increase agility and improve efficiency. Public clouds are readily available and highly scalable. A flexible, pay-as-you-go pricing model for services that lets enterprises shift from capital expense to operational expense.

Yet, managing multiple and often incompatible cloud offerings in a siloed multicloud environment creates significant challenges for IT. Dispersed workloads and data make it hard to mitigate risk, maximize performance and ensure productivity while keeping the lid on costs. To reap the benefits of a multicloud architecture, enterprises must find a more consistent approach to managing cloud infrastructure and operations. That’s where Dell Technologies can help.

Multicloud FAQs

Multicloud refers to the use of cloud services delivered by more than one vendor. Multicloud environments may comprise two or more public cloud services, or two or more private cloud environments.

While a multicloud architecture comprises multiple public cloud services or multiple private cloud services, a hybrid cloud environment combines different types of cloud deployments such as public, private or on-premises, with tools for integrating and orchestrating the movement of workloads between each. Because each cloud model offers advantages for specific workloads, enterprises frequently adopt a hybrid cloud architecture to improve application efficiency, reduce costs and accommodate technical requirements.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is an IT modMulticloud storage involves the use of services from two or more cloud storage providers. Cloud storage enables organizations to store data and files on servers provisioned and managed by cloud providers rather than drives or media within on-premises data centers.el that provides developers with a cloud-based environment for developing, testing, running and managing applications. PaaS offerings provide best-of-breed tools without requiring capital expense for hardware and software.

When working with multiple cloud platforms, IT teams are inevitably burdened by a level of inconsistency in the processes, tools and skillsets required to manage each cloud. As a result, enterprises experience a loss of productivity and an inability to scale effectively, hindering innovation and increasing operational expenses.

Dell simplifies operations and improves cloud economics by providing a consistent management experience across all clouds. With Dell, organizations can reduce complexity, improve agility, lower operational costs and manage multicloud environments with ease.
