• Hybrid Cloud Computing

    • Boost efficiency with consistent hybrid cloud computing

    • Over the past decade, many enterprises have moved to the cloud without a coherent strategy for solving business and application requirements. The result has often been a Multicloud infrastructure, where diverse cloud resources are chosen to serve the needs of a range of workloads. This proliferation of multiple clouds is now creating significant challenges – including unpredictable costs, security vulnerabilities and management headaches — that limit innovation. 

      APEX offers a solution – a platform that provides consistent infrastructure, operations and management for a simpler and more effective hybrid cloud computing experience.

    • VMware Cloud on Dell

      A VMware managed on-premesis infrastructure, delivered as-a-service designed to run your most critical business workloads.

    • The advantages of a consistent operations experience

    • With the right management solution, organizations can transform a chaotic Multicloud deployment into a well-run hybrid cloud infrastructure. With a consistent management experience across all public, private and edge cloud resources, IT teams can:

      • Improve efficiency and control by eliminating inefficient workflows that require administrators to toggle between multiple cloud platforms.
      • Reduce exposure to risk by making it easier to ensure that cloud instances are configured properly and patched efficiently, and by eliminating blind spots through greater visibility into all cloud infrastructure.
      • Increase workload mobility by relying on hyperconverged infrastructure, automated lifecycle management and the ability to move workloads back to on-premises infrastructure.
      • Minimize costs by capitalizing on changing economic profiles among clouds.
      • Accelerate innovation by enabling developers to build for one environment rather than many.

    • Hybrid cloud computing with APEX

    • APEX uses the expertise of Dell Technologies to provide a single operational hub for hybrid cloud computing. Combining a robust HCI platform, a cloud orchestration tool and full stack integration, APEX eliminates silos, simplifies operations and provides a consistent management experience across all public, private and edge cloud resources.

      With APEX, enterprises can:

      • Embrace new cloud operating models without limiting innovation, thanks to technology that helps to avoid costly re-platforming efforts when moving to the cloud.
      • Achieve a consistent experience across all clouds, lowering management overhead, simplifying cloud processes and reducing the risks associated with disparate tools and security postures.
      • Build hybrid cloud computing resources on reliable and secure infrastructure, thanks to industry-leading, enterprise-grade hardware from Dell Technologies, the world’s #1 infrastructure provider.
      • Enable innovation with flexible cloud solutions that easily adapt to the demands, requirements and needs of cloud computing services over time.

    • Our suite of hybrid cloud computing solutions

    • APEX comprises a suite of solutions that include:

      • A turnkey cloud platform in VMware Cloud Foundation for VxRail. This solution engineered by  Dell Technologies, provides a consistent infrastructure and consistent operations in one complete, automated platform. Automated lifecycle management for the entire hybrid cloud infrastructure stack helps to streamline operations and reduce TCO.
      • Pre-tested infrastructure from APEX Validated Designs. Best-of-breed Dell infrastructure helps organizations build their own hybrid cloud infrastructure to meet the varied demands of workloads with independent scaling of compute and storage.
      • A fully managed, subscription-based Data Center-as-a-Service. VMware Cloud on Dell Technologies provides infrastructure that can be installed in local data centers and consumed just like a cloud service. This hybrid cloud computing solution resolves the on-premise vs cloud infrastructure debate by bringing the simplicity and agility of the public cloud to data centers and edge locations.
      • Support for partner clouds. Enterprises can extend their hybrid cloud computing environment to AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform and more than 4,200 additional cloud providers.

    • A more flexible way to build hybrid cloud infrastructure

    • APEX Platform is now available with subscription pricing that lowers the barrier of entry for hybrid cloud computing. A simple monthly price covers all hardware, software, deployment services and support services. IT teams can deploy hybrid environments in as few as 14 days and ramp up for as little as $70 per node per day, eliminating upfront costs and forecasting risks. With subscription pricing, it’s now easier than ever to buy and scale hybrid cloud computing environments with a true cloud consumption model.

    • FAQs: What is hybrid cloud computing?

    • What is hybrid cloud computing?

      Hybrid cloud computing is a cloud architecture comprising two or more public, private and edge clouds that are bound together by standardized technology to enable data and application portability. In a hybrid cloud, individual cloud resources can manage workloads together, making it possible to managing cloud bursting, load balancing and other actions across multiple cloud resources.

      What is Multicloud architecture?

      A Multicloud architecture consists of two or more public, private or edge clouds, where each platform is managed independently rather than in concert.

      What are the challenges of managing Multicloud solutions?

      In a Multicloud deployment, cloud administrators must constantly toggle between cloud platforms when managing workloads. As a result, the management experience can be chaotic and complex, adding cost, risk and greater administrative burden to the task of managing multiple clouds. 

      How does APEX improve Multicloud and hybrid cloud computing?

      APEX significantly simplifies management of hybrid cloud environments by providing a consistent infrastructure, operations and management experience.
