Dell EMC The Source 78 – Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack

Clouds come in many shapes, sizes and personalities.  The Microsoft Azure Stack promises to deliver to users the ability to choose the hybrid deployment that works best for them, with a common process and set of tools for Azure and Azure Stack.  As we have discussed, all clouds run on Infrastructure, and who better to deliver a fully integrated on-prem Azure Stack than Dell EMC.  This week I spent some time with Paul Galjan (@PaulGaljan), Sr. Director Microsoft Hybrid Cloud Solutions at Dell EMC.

Dell EMC The Source Episode #77

Cloud has moved from the latest buzz word to a movement.  It’s vital to both IT and Digital Transformation.  Dell EMC Customers are turning to Cloud for Application Deployments on a regular basis; but as it turns out, a cloud is really an operating model not a place.  Clouds and hybrid clouds provide the foundation for a cost-effective and successful digital transformation.  This week I spent some time with Chris Cicotte (@Chris_Cicotte), Dell EMC Cloud Portfolio Messaging Director. We talked Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, and the concept of Multi-Cloud.  For more info, check out www.dell.com/cloud, along with our latest cost study.

Cloud. Cloud is everywhere. Cloud is fueling the transformation of technology, so what is Dell EMC doing? Who are the other players in the industry and how are we working together?  Dorian Naveh (@DorianNaveh), Sr. Director Technology Alliances joins me this week as we talk open source, cloud consumption models and the vast Dell EMC Cloud ecosystem and most important, how our customers are using Dell EMC technologies as a fundamental part of their cloud deployments. We touch on the higher level ecosystem landscape then drill a little deeper into OpenStack, and Dell EMC involvement in the community.  For more information, visit the ECN community Everything OpenStack.

We also touched on the Dell EMC premier sponsorship of “Openstack Summit” October 25-28, 2016, in Barcelona, Spain.  OpenStack Summit is the most important gathering of IT leaders, telco operators, cloud administrators, app developers and OpenStack contributors building the future of cloud computing.

Cloud computing continues to gain momentum across organizations of all sizes.  IDC estimates that 80% of IT service organizations will move to hybrid cloud environments by the end of 2017.

What does a hybrid cloud do for your business?  What are the real business benefits?

More important, once you have determined that a hybrid deployment is the right cloud for you, where do you start?  How do you order a cloud?  How do you build a cloud?  What options are there?

Principled Technologies recently published an in-depth research report focused on uncovering the real-world value of a hybrid cloud deployment.  The report “IT service transformation with hybrid cloud: Buy or Build?”, details the journey of an average company’s path to a hybrid cloud.  The report includes a detailed breakdown of 3 year cost savings and all associated costs for both building and buying the required infrastructure.  The full report is available here and in EMC The Source App under bonus material for this episode.

I recently spoke to Kevin Gray, Sr Manager of EMC Engineered Solutions, Kevin was part of the EMC Team behind the white paper.  Where did the savings come from, what did we learn?  Find out this week on “EMC The Source”.
