Dell Technologies Apex Cloud Service With VMware Cloud
With VMware and Dell Technologies continuing their tight innovation and go-to-market strategy, the two companies unveiled the new Dell Technologies Apex Cloud Services with VMware Cloud. The Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering allows customers to deploy pre-configured cloud instances in their data center or at an edge location or co-location facility.
The new Dell-managed solution combines its hyperconverged infrastructure, VxRail, with VMware’s compute, storage, and network virtualization capabilities. Dell’s Apex Cloud Services with VMware Cloud provides secure operations across multi-cloud environments and gives customers the ability to move workloads across clouds and scale resources quickly with predictable costs.
Varun Chhabra, senior vice president of product marketing at Dell Technologies, told CRN that the solution is built to deliver an outcome-based approach that customers enjoy in the public cloud.
“Customers want to have the flexibility to be able to move workloads between different clouds without having a lot of overhead and friction. They also want to be able to run both traditional applications as well as cloud native applications on the same platform,” said Dell’s Chhabra. “Apex Cloud Services with VMC (VMware Cloud) gives customers a consistent framework to work across different clouds and manage both their traditional and cloud native applications in the same solution.”
Businesses can deploy the solution in their data center, at an edge location or a colocation facility. Dell has preconfigured cloud instances on Apex to make it easier for customers to get started. Dell’s Apex Cloud Services with VMC also helps organizations safeguard their data, meet regulatory requirements and avoid cyber threats with built-in cyber resiliency.
Dell Technologies APEX Cloud Services with VMware Cloud will become generally available within the next few months. The infrastructure-as-a-Service offering allows.
