Dell Intros Hybrid Cloud Gear Tuned for Microsoft Azure

Dell announced a new hybrid cloud solution featuring technology jointly developed with Microsoft.

The Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft, which is built around the new Microsoft Cloud Platform System Standard, is an integrated, modular hybrid cloud solution that targets simplified, automated deployment and maintenance capabilities; a unique payment solution to reduce customer investment risk; and hybrid cloud governance, control, and policy-based automation for Microsoft Azure and other cloud environments.

The system was highlighted in a Dell World keynote discussion between Michael Dell and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

Some highlights:

  • On-premises private cloud, with consistent Azure public cloud access in less than three hours, and minimized downtime with unified system updates that are non-disruptive, fully automated, dependency-aware and smart-sequenced.
  • The ability to build and provision workload templates and flexibly deploy business services and governance models of multiple cloud environments from one management construct, via out-of-the-box integration with Dell Cloud Manager (DCM).
  • Unified, simplified private-with-public cloud management and consumption control across Windows Azure Pack (WAP), Azure and other cloud services.
  • The Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft is built around CPS Standard, which combines optimized Dell modular infrastructure with pre-configured Microsoft CPS software, including Microsoft’s proven software stack and Azure Services for back-up, site recovery and operational insights. Additional services from Dell include ProSupport and Managed Cloud Services.

“The challenges most customers face on their cloud journey are clear. They tell us it’s too complex, the cost-risk is too high, and control isn’t transparent,” said Jim Ganthier, vice president and general manager of engineered solutions and cloud at Dell.

“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.”
