Dell Technologies intends to transform its APEX storage cloud platform into a de facto ground zero for all cloud app development, which is where the majority of enterprise IT creation will go in 2022 and beyond.
The company''s first mostly-in-person event since the epidemic in spring 2020 today, led by Black Rock, Texas, a flotilla of new capabilities for the APEX development package, the most important of which is a revamped cyber recovery capability.
APEX offers a portfolio-as-a-service that you thought existed just when you thought you had seen every as-a-service idea. Its versatility is why Dell believes users may funnel any form of cloud app or infrastructure development required into its catch-all APEX backstop.
Dell manages cyber recovery
Dell manages the day-to-day cyber recovery vault operations and assists with data recovery. Dell offers standardized configurations, Dell-assisted recovery options, and expertise from over 2,000 remote vault solutions worldwide, according to Manca.
We have already started with our GA APEX product on our storage and compute services, combined with APEX private cloud and APEX hybrid cloud, according to Manca. VMware has also provided a complete set of customized offers, which means customers who wish to subscribe to products or services directly can do this by our flex-on-demand program.
What youe intending to see right now that we have the (APEX) basics, is that you may well be adding data protection and some other features. What youe intending to see us do now is move up the stack more towards solutions.
Users want to improve the complexity of information processing, and are looking for solutions that integrate their data with a common approach, from public clouds to the data center, to the edge, according to Chuck Whitten, the co-chief operating officer of Dell Technologies. We are developing a network of software and services that facilitate on-premises and multi-cloud environments and offers.
In public clouds, Dell offers cyber recovery on-premises.
According to a recent Gartnerreport, global information security and risk management end-user expenditure will reach around $168 billion in 2022, up more than $13 billion from 2021. Dell is now offering new options for managed cyber recovery capabilities and public cloud cyber recovery solutions for multi-cloud environments.
Dell has announced a cloud-specific set of capabilities for Microsoft Azure and AWS. Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery will join other Dell offerings available through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and will allow enterprises to accomplish these tasks:
- Deploy an isolated cyber vault in the public cloud to more securely protect and isolate data away from a ransomware attack, improving cyber resiliency and helping reduce the impact of cyberattacks; and
- Provide flexible recovery options in the event of a cyberattack including recovery within the data center, in a new Azure private network, or in an unimpacted Azure environment.
The developer of CyberSense for Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery will be given the ability to do the following:
- Use adaptive analytics, scan metadata and complete files, and implement machine learning and forensic tools to detect, diagnose and speed data recovery.
- Monitor files and databases to determine if a cyberattack has occurred and identify the last known uncorrupted copy of data to speed a more secure and confidential recovery.
Dell and Snowflake have combined to develop multi-cloud solutions.
Manca said that the collaboration between Dell and Snowflake will enable customers to operate in multi-cloud environments and meet data sovereignty requirements, as well as easily transform data into insights wherever it is located.
Customers of Dell and Snowflake will be able to utilize on-premises data stored on the Snowflake Data Cloud while keeping their data locally or seamlessly copying it to public clouds. In the second half of 2022, the companies will continue product integrations and joint go-to-market efforts.
Dell APEX Cyber Recovery Services is now available in the United States, with more access planned for later this year, according to the company. Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for Microsoft Azure will be globally available in the second half of 2022. CyberSense for Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS will be globally available in the second half of 2022.
