Dell Co-COO: Apex Now 'World's Most Comprehensive As-A-Service And Multi-Cloud Portfolio'
'True multi-cloud by design requires something easy to say and very hard to do: the freedom to run workloads wherever your business needs dictate, unconstrained by technology,' says Dell Technologies Co-COO Chuck Whitten at Dell Technologies World.

When it comes to multi-cloud, Dell Technologies wants you to think of it as an intrepid letter carrier: Neither on-premises, nor colocation, nor public cloud, nor hybrid-cloud shall keep this data from running in its most efficient environment.
"Because there is no one answer for every workload," founder, Chairman and CEO Michael Dell said, "but there is a right answer to optimize every workload for performance and cost."
Kicking off Dell Technologies World 2023, the company is leaning into solving its customers' most complex data challenges across numerous types of environments. To accomplish this, it has now paired its Apex as-a-service offering with the most powerful names in cloud—Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Red Hat and VMware—to give customers the choice and flexibility to avoid cloud-lock in.
"Multi-cloud by design isn't just a tag line. Here at Dell Technologies World over the next few days we will release the largest expansion ever to our Apex offerings, bringing customers a modern cloud experience and consumption model built for multi-cloud," Dell told the crowd, which packed the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
Steven McCall, technical solutions architect at Dell's first-ever Titanium Black Partner, World Wide Technology, an 8,000- employee St. Louis, Mo.-based solution provider, praised Dell for the dedication it shows to partners.
Unveiled at the show was Dell Apex Cloud Platforms for Microsoft, Red Hat and VMware.
