Technology major Dell has decided to launch its Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Services inCanadaandEurope.
As per the introductory trial offer, which is available in theU.S.andCanadafor $999, Dell offers hybrid and public cloud offerings, including full security, support and deployment.
After completing trial offer for $999, businesses can continue to use VMware vCloud offerings that provide single or multi-tenant environments and either compute-by-the-hour or compute-by-the-month rates of consumption.
According to a recent study by Dell, Intel and TechTarget, adoption of hybrid and private clouds is outpacing public cloud adoption.
Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service is enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) hosted in a secure Dell data center.
It can provide the software, hardware and services to become an extension of a company’s data center environment, allowing VMware customers to transition existing VMware virtualized workloads to the cloud and manage them using their existing VMware cloud infrastructure.
In addition, it is built using a common management platform based on open, industry cloud standards. The use of the same VMware cloud infrastructure for connectivity across private and public cloud creates a compatible virtual datacenter, enabling application portability across clouds.
“I don’t want to be in the data center business. I want to leverage a service provider like Dell to help me easily scale my business. The Dell Cloud enables us to offer our customers top-notch services, and if issues should arise, Dell will handle them quickly knowing that we cannot afford downtime,” Oz Yosef, CEO, Gratifón S.A., a telecommunications company inPanama.
Dell Cloud enables enterprises to ensure pooling of servers, networks and storage can increase agility, thus helping to reduce the time and budget needed to stand up and maintain traditional physical environments.
“The Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service gives customers control and flexibility to manage and extend IT resources for private, public or hybrid cloud without having to retrain IT staff. Our Dell Services experts can help guide them as they experiment and implement a solution that fits within their IT environments,” said Ricky Santos, vice president, cloud solutions for Dell.
