Finding acceptable cloud storage choices is a major consideration for enterprises looking to overcome obstacles to hybrid cloud adoption. Hybrid cloud architectures are designed to allow IT teams to migrate workloads to cloud services that can increase performance and lower costs. To achieve this level of flexibility, hybrid cloud storage systems must be simple to operate, offer flexible consumption options, and interface with both cloud services infrastructure.
Dell Technologies, as a largest supplier of hybrid cloud – based solutions, offers robust online storage options that make hybrid cloud implementation easier and faster.
Maintaining data storage infrastructure has traditionally been difficult. Over- and the under concerns, capital budget limits, and complicated procurement and migration processes must all be addressed by IT departments.

APEX Data Storage Services’ revolutionary power
Forrester interviewed APEX Data Storage Solutions clients and polled around 120 IT decision-makers accountable for storage to learn more about the advantages of this unique product, which can improve an organization’s business outcomes6 by up to:
- Savings of 50% on IT time
- Deployment is 86 percent faster.
- Return on investment of 129 percent

The advantages of using storage as a service:
IT organizations must shift priorities or free up to focus on the most important initiatives in order to catch pace with business requirements. ESG researcher Scott Sinclair explains how Dell is performing with Data Storage Services in light of the recent and significant surge in as-a-Service usage.
Storage-as-a-Service allows businesses to be more resilient and agile.
It’s no surprise that the opportunity to improve corporate operations is driving adoption of as-a-Service models.
Despite the many advantages of public cloud, many firms have hurried to embrace a “cloud first” approach, typically due to their enthusiasm for the technology. This approach has encouraged many organisations to rush into cloud infrastructure usage and, in some cases, requirements – possibly without careful evaluation of which workloads are a good fit or not. MANAGE THE PUBLIC CLOUD Operational simplification The reality is that we exist in a hybrid cloud environment in which both cloud service and on-premises infrastructure play critical roles in the hybrid cloud operating paradigm. Although cloud service may be appropriate for some workloads, you may want or be required to use equipment on-premises or in a private cloud in certain circumstances.
Eliminate time-consuming and difficult forecasting, procurement, and migration cycles. Avoid the lengthy procurement procedures and complicated migrations that come with renewing or renewing your storage system on a regular basis. APEX Data Storage Services enhances your operational efficiency by reducing planned and provisioning expenses by up to 86 percent with non-disruptive new hardware and simple contract terms.
Over- and under-provisioning should be avoided. To prevent risk, companies traditionally over-provision storage capacity. Rapid growth or uncertain capacity requirements, on the other hand, might lead to under-provisioning. You just use bandwidth often on a basis with Data Storage Services. Over-provisioning expenditures are eliminated, and storage costs are reduced by up to 45 percent.
Allow IT workers to focus on higher-value activities. Dell Technologies owns and maintains all infrastructure, with levels of service for capacity, performance, and availability. You are no longer responsible for administrative and maintenance chores that traditionally accompany infrastructure ownership. This can save IT time by up to 50%, allowing IT to become a provider for their company.
