Dell strengthens its integration with Google Cloud
To meet the business needs of hybrid cloud storage models, Dell has strengthened its partnership with Google Cloud to natively integrate its offering with the OneFS Cloud.
Dell Technologies has strengthened its relationship with Google Cloud to bring their file storage systems closer together. Round Rock’s vendor launched the OneFS for Google Cloud, a hybrid cloud storage system that can move up to 50 petabytes of data from private cloud to public and back. The goal is to simplify the management of hybrid cloud capabilities for businesses.
The platform combines Dell EMC Isilon, Dell’s scale-out storage solution, with analytics and compute services from Google Cloud. The OneFS for Google Cloud cloud service supports applications on different clouds with the support of Tanzu Kubernetes Grid and VMware’s Cloud Foundation 4.0. Based on performance testing by the IOzone benchmark for Dell, OneFS provided a read rate of 200 GB / s and a write rate of 120 GB / s. The solution is also available on Microsoft’s Azure cloud.
Eligible for Dell’s Flexible Payment Program
This native integration of the two suppliers also facilitates the payment of this common solution. Customers order Cloud OneFS from the Google Cloud Marketplace, and once delivered, it can configure and manage Dell’s system right from its Google Cloud console. Customers receive a single monthly invoice (through Dell Technologies On Demand) and Google support, while Dell Technologies experts manage operations. The product falls under Dell’s Financial Services, which includes the recently launched Payments Flexibility Program, a program to support partners and struggling customers during the economic turmoil caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
