Dell Launches 7 New Apex, AWS, Storage And Cloud Offers
From new Apex as-a-Service solutions to bringing its storage software IP to the public cloud, Dell Technologies makes its first big splash in 2022 with seven new solutions.
Apex Multi-Cloud Data Services; Available Through All Major Public Clouds
Dell’s new Apex Multi-Cloud Data Services delivers storage –including file, block and object—as well as data protection as-a-Services with simultaneous access to all major public clouds through a single console.
“What you’re actually buying is both the storage service and the interconnect to the public clouds. So you have a high speed, low-latency cloud connection to the major hyperscalers,” said Gordon. “You can actually use multiple clouds, at the same time, to the same dataset—which is very, very unique. So it gives you that simultaneous access to multiple public clouds without ever having to move data that avoids lock-in with the hyperscalers. In many cases, it avoids egress fees with those cloud providers.”
Integrated with the Apex Console, the offer allows organizations to easily connect storage and data protection to preferred public clouds and services which helps avoid public cloud vendor lock-in, excessive egress fees and the cost and risk associated with moving data from one cloud to another.
“It’s powered by all of Dell’s industry-leading storage and data protection appliances, which means that native replication from an on-prem Apex Data Storage Service, or an on-prem PowerStore or PowerScale, can replicate into this Apex Multi-Cloud Data Services offer,” Gordon said.
Apex Multi-Cloud Data Services is currently not available for channel partners to resell.
The company said it does not know exactly when partners can start selling the offer, but hopefully later in 2022. “This new offer is going to be something we will expand to channel partners for availability in the future,” said Dell’s Gordon.
