Dell expands APEX cloud services portfolio

Dell has announced an expansion of its APEX cloud portfolio, including the availability of its APEX Data Storage Services in Australia and New Zealand.

The new data storage services are deployable on premise or on Dell-managed infrastructure on an Equinix International Business Exchange data centre.

The portfolio includes APEX File Services, which is designed to expand storage use cases to include cloud-native application development without the need to copy data.

Customers can select from three performance tiers for APEX Block and File Services, with base capacity options starting as low as 50 terabytes. The services are available on one- or three-year terms.

With the launch Dell channel partners will be able to offer the services to customers in Australia and New Zealand, and will have the option of hosting the services on behalf of customers.

“With the expansion of our APEX Data Storage Services, more customers now have the opportunity to make the shift to as-a-service and easily grow their business,” Dell President for APJ and Global Digital Cities Amit Midha said.

“Dell will support Australian and New Zealand customers in their storage-as-a-service decisions and work with them to simplify their storage needs.”

Meanwhile, Dell has also introduced APEX Multi-Cloud data services, aimed at helping customers simplify the operation of a multi-cloud environment.

The service will provide file, block, object and data protection services for simultaneous access to all major public clouds from a single source of data.

In addition, Dell has introduced APEX Backup Services for protecting SaaS applications, endpoints and hybrid workloads in the public cloud.

Finally, Telstra has announced it will offer the Dell APEX Data Centre Utility through Telstra Cloud Sight for its Telstra Private Cloud customers.

“At the core of Telstra’s Hybrid Cloud Ecosystem, Telstra Private Cloud provides security, sovereignty and connectivity underpinned by Dell Technologies APEX Data Centre Utility and a single pane of hybrid experience through Telstra Cloud Sight,” Telstra edge and cloud executive Sarah Anderson said.

“Customers can access this as a scalable self-service capability or a fully automated managed service, supported by our 200-plus hybrid cloud experts from Telstra Purple.”
