Dell expands cloud portfolio with new hybrid cloud solution


Dell expanded its cloud portfolio with a new hybrid cloud solution. The latest version features technology jointly developed with Microsoft.

Dell said the new version is designed to break down the barriers customers experience on their path to cloud. Dell also offered a payment solution to help customers simplify and minimize risks associated with cloud adoption.

Citing the results of its latest survey among IT decision makers, Dell said 9 in 10 say a hybrid cloud strategy is important to achieve a Future-Ready Enterprise.

Further, the recently unveiled Dell Global Technology Adoption Index revealed that 55 percent of organizations globally indicated use of more than one type of cloud.

Dell announced the availability of the Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft, which is built around the new Microsoft Cloud Platform System Standard.

The Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft is the industry’s first integrated, modular hybrid cloud solution.

“Customers want to simplify and accelerate their journey to the cloud, and today Microsoft and Dell are extending their collaboration to remove many of the traditional barriers to hybrid cloud,” said Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President, Cloud and Enterprise, Microsoft.

“With CPS Standard, which is at the heart of the Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft, we’ve worked together to deliver a solution that goes beyond other integrated systems on the market today, by providing Azure-consistent hybrid cloud services and a fast time to value to help customers enable their hybrid cloud strategy.”

Most recently, Dell launched Wyse 5050 AIO zero client for VMware and new cloud multifunction printers at Dell World. The Wyse 5050 AIO zero client for VMware is an addition to the OptiPlex commercialPC portfolio.

At Dell World, Dell also announced a new range of  security solutions to help organisations to protect themselves from evolving threats while strengthening business agility.
