Realize public cloud-like flexibility with Dell’s cloud consumption models
With flexible cloud consumption solutions through Dell Financial Services (DFS), Dell EMC makes it easy for customers to acquire cloud-enabled infrastructure and achieve transformational goals .3For example, customers may choose to leverage cost and flexibility benefits of consumption solutions to accommodate unpredictable usage of new applications and seasonal spikes that drive buffer capacity requirements.
Cloud Flex for HCI minimizes the risk of moving to Dell EMC VxRail Appliances or Dell EMC Cloud for Microsoft Azure Stack. It requires no up-front investment and has declining payments over time with no obligation after the first 12 months. Dell EMC also offers Ready Capacity, which provides on-demand storage and buffer capacity that scales to match usage needs, and Flex on Demand, which allows customers to deploy base capacity now and pay for buffer capacity as it is used.
