Dell Technologies World, the company’s flagship event, saw a major focus on multi-cloud this year. Dell rolled out a slew of major software enhancements, hardware features and cloud partnerships to prepare its channel partners for a multi-cloud future. The company’s new offerings include Project Alpine and the Snowflake partnership, which are all geared to help customers easily and seamlessly integrate Dell’s solutions with their chosen cloud platform.
According to Jeff Clarke, Dell’s co-Chief Operating Officer and Vice Chairman, the company’s strategy is to combine various clouds and create an orchestration layer that enables them to function as a distributed platform. He stated that, “If you think about what we described around multi-cloud, we can begin to take pools of our different storage assets and create one, common, single pool for storage for developers and whatever tools they want to use. Then we’re talking about moving from there, taking all of these individual clouds that we’ve mentioned several times, and combining them, building an orchestration layer that actually allows them to work as a distributed platform. That’s where we’re going.”
This emphasis on multi-cloud is driven by the growing need for multi-cloud in today’s digital landscape. With the increasing amount of data and applications that companies are managing, multi-cloud has become a critical part of any IT strategy. By providing a common platform and tools, Dell is making it easier for customers to manage and integrate their various cloud solutions.
Dell’s Project Alpine is a prime example of this strategy. The company is taking its data protection and enterprise data services and making them available in the public cloud. This will allow customers to easily protect and manage their data across multiple cloud environments. Additionally, with its Snowflake partnership, Dell is bringing cloud-based analytics to on-prem architecture, providing customers with a flexible solution that can be used across multiple cloud environments.
Another important announcement was the launch of Dell Apex Cyber Recovery Services. This new offering helps customers recover from cyberattacks with a comprehensive set of services that can help customers quickly recover from a cyber attack and get back to business. This new service is a game-changer for businesses who are looking to protect their data and operations from cyber threats.
Dell CEO and founder Michael Dell also highlighted the company’s vision for multi-cloud, its focus on the future of development, and its support for Ukraine during his keynote speech. He emphasized that the company is worth $101 billion.
