Dell expants its cloud portfolio with a new hybrid cloud solution, featuring technology jointly developed with Microsoft, designed to accelerate their customers’ journey to hybrid cloud
Dell announced the availability of the Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft, which is built around the new Microsoft Cloud Platform System Standard, highlighted today in a Dell World keynote discussion between Michael Dell and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. This new system is designed to break through the hybrid cloud adoption barriers of complexity, cost and control.
The Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft is the first integrated, modular hybrid cloud solution. This new system delivers simplified, automated deployment and maintenance capabilities; a payment solution and hybrid cloud governance, control, and policy-based automation for Microsoft Azure and other cloud environments.
The Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft provides:
- On-premises private cloud, with Azure public cloud access in less than three hours, and minimized downtime with unified system updates that are non-disruptive, fully automated.
- The ability to build and provision workload templates and flexibly deploy business services and governance models of multiple cloud environments from one management construct, via out-of-the-box integration with Dell Cloud Manager (DCM).
- Unified private-with-public cloud management and consumption control across Windows Azure Pack (WAP), Azure and other cloud services.
The Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft is built around CPS Standard, which combines Dell modular infrastructure with pre-configured Microsoft CPS software, including Microsoft’s software stack and Azure Services for back-up, site recovery and operational insights. Additional services from Dell include ProSupport and Managed Cloud Services.
