Multicloud has become one of the most convenient and efficient tools for data storage. In the last two years, we have seen how the cloud has facilitated remote access and sharing of information. Today, multicloud has become a default choice for many organizations, with 76 percent of enterprises already adopting it, and 86% expecting to be on by 2023.
But multicloud is far from being perfect – inconsistencies in infrastructure with different cloud providers have led to unnecessary complexities and risks. With the right tools, organizations can leverage core services to overcome these challenges and enjoy potential cost savings, greater data protection, flexibility and other benefits that come along with a modern storage experience enabled by multi-cloud.
Done right, multicloud storage can be an architectural revolution that transforms businesses, delivering on the promise of ease and agility. So, as we work to make this “multicloud by design” more accessible for our customers, here’s a look at what this means for enterprises.
Securing Mission-critical Databases
Never put all your eggs in one basket. This is especially true when it comes to essential data critical for business operations. With data as the new currency in today’s world, the importance of maintaining control over your data cannot be stressed enough. Centralized monitoring and logging that comes from using a multicloud deployment ensures that storage resources are always available and resilient.
To meet increasing customer demand for multicloud capabilities, partnerships and licensing agreements are inevitable. That is why Dell launched Project Alpine, a collection of cloud storage products for block, object and file storage available for purchase from major hyperscalers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This service enables enterprises to have greater data mobility across either cloud or on-premises arrays, as well as the option to engage a hyperscaler of their choice.
Easing Disaster Recovery
As data becomes more valuable, they are also subject to attacks by bad actors. You may have heard the expression “everything fails, all the time”. It has become the go-to phrase to describe the reality of technology. This is exactly why disaster recovery is an important aspect of any cloud deployment.
The State Grid Corporation of China partnered with Dell Technologies to build a backup and disaster recovery platform. Their commitment to risk management had fueled their fundamental growth, boosting efficiency by over 200%. In the same vein, an established insurance company needs to keep up with its rate of growth and required improvements to its infrastructure to improve existing disaster recovery and failover capabilities. Alongside extended disaster recovery capabilities, the company saw reduced administrative workloads and a significantly simplified infrastructure experience.
