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.

The advantages of using storage as a service:
IT organizations need to reprioritize and focus on critical initiatives to align with business needs. ESG researcher Scott Sinclair assesses Dell’s performance with Data Storage Services, especially considering the recent 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 public cloud’s benefits, firms rush into “cloud first” approaches, often due to enthusiasm. This haste leads to rapid cloud adoption, sometimes without assessing workload suitability.
Operational simplification: We operate in a hybrid cloud environment where cloud services and on-premises infrastructure are vital. While cloud suits some workloads, situations may require on-premises or private cloud use.
Eliminate time-consuming and difficult forecasting, procurement, and migration cycles. Avoid long procurement and complex migrations when refreshing your storage system. APEX Data Storage Services boost operational efficiency, reducing planned and provisioning expenses by up to 86 percent. You can achieve this through non-disruptive hardware upgrades and straightforward contract terms.
Avoid both over- and under-provisioning. 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. You can eliminate over-provisioning expenses and cut storage costs 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.
