Dell, VMware Drive Simplicity With New Multi-Cloud and Infrastructure Solutions


Dell Technologies announces new cloud and IT offerings, co-engineered with VMware, to speed how organisations consume, manage and act on critical data.

“Organisations are increasingly relying on multiple clouds and other emerging technologies to remain competitive in today’s demanding business climate, with more than 90 per cent of enterprises expected to rely on a mix of private clouds, various public clouds and existing infrastructure within the next year,” said Jeff Boudreau, president and general manager of Dell Technologies Infrastructure Solutions Group. 

“Today’s announcement reinforces the value Dell and VMware offer together and further demonstrates our commitment to delivering technologies that simplify how organisations can use technology to capitalise on a data-driven, always-on economy regardless of where applications and data reside,” added Boudreau.

Dell Technologies APEX Cloud Services with VMware Cloud provides secure and consistent operations across multi-cloud environments. The new Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering gives organisations the ability to move workloads across multiple cloud environments and scale resources quickly with predictable pricing and transparent costs. To help organisations safeguard their data and avoid potential threats to their business, the dell-managed offering assists organisations to meet local regulatory requirements and helps protect them from malicious attacks with built-in cyber resiliency. 

Using the APEX Console, organisations can subscribe to, monitor and optimise the service. For many common workloads, Dell has preconfigured cloud instances, making it easier for customers to get started. Organisations can deploy APEX Cloud Services with VMware Cloud in their data centre, at an edge location or co-location facility with partners such as Equinix.

“APEX Cloud Services with VMware Cloud is a compelling offering that will make it easier for organizations to quickly deploy application ready infrastructure,” said Steven Kouvo, Core Technology Service Group for Boston Scientific.

The offering can be used with VMware Tanzu, allowing customers to build, test and run cloud-native applications alongside traditional applications. Customers can migrate workloads across multiple clouds with VMware HCX, included in the service, which eliminates the need to re-architect applications for different cloud environments.

“As customers digitise their businesses with both enterprise and modern apps, they expect their infrastructure to deliver cloud-like simplicity regardless of where it runs,” said Mark Lohmeyer, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Infrastructure Business Group, VMware. “Dell Technologies APEX Cloud Services with VMware Cloud helps customers achieve cloud simplicity and enterprise-class security and operations. The service brings the power of co-engineering between Dell Technologies and VMware to help customers adopt more agile and flexible cloud infrastructure to drive better business outcomes.”
