Dell EMC unveils enhancements to cloud-enabled platforms
Cloud-enabled portfolio updates offer consistent experiences for on and off-premises solutions
Dell EMC, a global provider of cloud infrastructure, has launched several enhancements to its cloud-enabled infrastructure solutions portfolio to help customers maximise the value of their IT ecosystem and multi-cloud environments.
Coupled with innovation from across Dell Technologies, Dell EMC is delivering a broad portfolio of cloud solutions that caters to all types of applications and creates a consistent experience across cloud platforms.
"As more applications and traditional workloads move into various clouds, the proliferation of cloud siloes will become inevitable, inhibiting organisations' ability to fully exploit business differentiators like data analytics and burgeoning AI initiatives," said Sam Grocott, senior vice president, Dell EMC. "Dell EMC's focused innovation across its cloud-enabled portfolio of platforms, infrastructure, consumption models and services helps organisations evolve more quickly to a cloud operating model for the modern data centre."
Dell EMC said the increasing amount of data brought about by mobility, artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing, along with traditional workloads, is driving demand for all types of clouds, including public, managed and on-premises.
In a survey conducted by Forrester, commissioned by Pivotal, a Dell Technologies business, and Microsoft, 100% of respondents are using multiple cloud infrastructure and or cloud application platforms. Additionally, 99% believe a consistent, unified approach to deployment, operation and use of combined infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service platforms enables better IT service to business.
According to the findings, cloud decision-makers in the study also said they look for integrated PaaS and IaaS with consistent identity and access controls, development experience, runtime environments and migration services.
