Dell Technologies has expanded APEX Data Storage Services with new availability in the UK. The portfolio of scalable and elastic storage resources is deployable on-premises or in a secure Dell-managed Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centre for use in the cloud.
According to Gartner, by 2024, over 50 per cent of newly deployed storage capacity will be sold as-a-Service or on a subscription basis, up from less than 15 per cent in 2020. Through a cloud experience, customers pay for the storage capacity they use and can scale, at the service level they need with infrastructure owned and maintained by Dell. The UK is one of 14 countries that now have APEX Data Storage Services availability.
The portfolio includes APEX File Services, which now offers object-enabled capabilities with support for the S3 protocol, expanding storage use cases to include cloud-native application development without the need to copy data. This approach allows customers to transform applications for greater agility and control.
Organisations can select from three performance tiers for APEX Block and File Services, available in one- or three-year terms, with base capacity options starting as low as 50 terabytes. Customers can procure their data storage resources through the APEX Console, a web-based tool that provides a single, seamless experience for customers to navigate their cloud and as-a-Service journey. Customers can monitor capacity, performance, and usage costs in real-time, and update their subscriptions as needed.
With APEX Data Storage Services expanded availability, Dell Technologies Solution Providers and Storage Authorised Distributors in the UK can earn incentives when selling these solutions on a referral basis. Cloud Service Provider partners also can host enhanced APEX Data Storage Services on behalf of customers.
