  • Jumpstart Multi-Cloud Environments with Dell Storage Recorded: Jun 9 2020 81 mins
    Matt Wallace, CTO at Faction & Jodey Hogeland, Global Technology Evangelist at Dell Technologies
    Public Cloud offers a multitude of native storage options that include File, Block, and Object. If you're in the public cloud, you're using one or more of these - but should every workload you add or move to public cloud always use native storage? How does the choice of storage affect your ability to execute a multi-cloud strategy?

    When evaluating a multi-cloud strategy, it's important to consider your existing on-prem investments such as VMware and enterprise storage solutions like Dell EMC Isilon's scale-out NAS , or mid-range and enterprise block storage platforms, including Dell EMC PowerStore, Unity XT or Powermax. Next, you'll need to ask yourself how much of your data can realistically be moved to the cloud while keeping both the teams that are deploying applications on-prem and in the cloud, happy.

    In this webinar, we cover:

    -Public cloud storage and factors to consider for real TCO
    -Using your existing on-prem VMware and Dell Storage solutions to accelerate your digital transformation using -hybrid- and multi-cloud
    -Workloads and use cases that make sense in this architecture
    -Pitfalls and best practices for combining on-prem data into multi-cloud
