    • Managing cloud computing services with a hybrid cloud

    • The availability of cloud computing services has grown exponentially over the past decade. Today, organizations can rely on elastic cloud computing services for virtual IT infrastructure, Software-as-a -Service (SaaS) offerings, network storage, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions and more.

      But as organizations have adopted multiple cloud computing services and cloud infrastructure, the task of managing this multicloud architecture has become incredibly complex. Hybrid cloud technology provides an alternative, with solutions for unifying multiple clouds on a single management plane with a common set of tools. For enterprises looking to successfully deploy and manage hybrid cloud environments, Dell Technologies provides a platform with comprehensive hardware and software solutions.

    • The complexity of multiple cloud computing services

    • The remarkable growth of cloud computing services enables enterprises today to work with multiple providers as they seek the optimal cloud resources and cost flexibility for running specific workloads. By aligning the needs of applications and requirements of the business with the advantages of different cloud offerings, IT teams can improve application efficiency and performance while reducing costs and accessing new services like containers, serverless technologies, data analytics and AI/ML platforms.

      While working with multiple cloud computing services offer tremendous benefits, it also adds additional complexity. Each cloud service and cloud platform comes with its own set of tools, different SLAs, inconsistent security postures and unpredictable costs. Managing multiple cloud computing services can result in a higher operational expenses and incompatible silos of infrastructure and ultimately may prove ineffective at scale. As a result, enterprises may have a harder time achieving the levels of innovation that originally spurred their move to the cloud.

      To solve this challenge, many organizations are moving from a multicloud architecture to a hybrid cloud model. While multicloud solutions provide access to a cloud computing services with no means for connecting them, a hybrid cloud unifies public, private and edge cloud resources with a consistent management experience for orchestrating workloads across clouds more easily.

      The key to benefiting from a hybrid cloud is to choose a partner with solutions that can simplify deployment and management of hybrid cloud infrastructure. That’s where Dell Technologies can help.

    • FAQs: What are cloud computing services?

    • What are cloud computing services?
      Cloud computing services are highly scalable hardware and software resources that can be accessed via the Internet. Cloud computing services include everything from infrastructure (servers, storage and networking) to applications, databases, analytics, intelligence, software development platforms and more.

      What is IaaS vs PaaS vs SaaS?
      Cloud computing services generally fall into three buckets: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). IaaS offerings provide computing infrastructure like virtualization, servers, storage and networking. PaaS solutions provide a platform for developing, testing and deploying applications. And SaaS offerings provide applications that can be accessed via a web browser.
