1. ‘The Best Hybrid Cloud Platform On Earth’

In its biggest product launch of the year, Dell Technologies unleashed the Dell Technologies Cloud, creating its flagship hybrid cloud, data center as-a-service architecture. The new consumption-based Dell Technologies Cloud is made up of two similar offerings with the same foundation of VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) integrated with hyperconverged infrastructure VxRail. One offering, Dell Technologies Cloud Platforms, includes VxRail and VCF with additional product options including Dell EMC servers, storage and networking products that can be sold and managed by channel partners. The other offering is Cloud Data Center-As-A-Service which includes VxRail, VCF and VMware management that is fully managed by Dell Technologies that can be sold by partners.

Dell Technologies Cloud began shipping this year with “off the charts” demands. The creation of the hybrid cloud architecture showed that Dell was more than ready to enter the data center as-a-service race by allows customers to buy Dell Technologies Cloud in a variety of options including Opex, lease, consume as-a-Service or pay per use.

“This is our opportunity to say, ‘Look, this is the best hybrid cloud platform on Earth,” said Matt Baker, senior vice president, Dell EMC Strategy and Planning in an interview with CRN. “We need to tell the world, ‘Look, this is the best way to build your hybrid cloud.’ Customers want a consistent operating environment. … Dell and our channel partners now have a well-oiled hybrid cloud platform that can be used to help our customers achieve their cloud ambitions.”

Michael Dell recently told CRN that his company will be “investing heavily” in the Dell Technologies Cloud in 2020.
