Today, many different businesses are receiving an increasing amount of information daily. Hospitals acquire data from medical scans, patient health records, and radiology images. Banks gather extensive information from old records, financial transactions, data archives, and shared files. Oil and gas enterprises systematically collect and analyze data from aerial sensors and high-resolution videography to guide their operations. Media companies handle a wide range of data, including content creation, new photos, and movies.

All these businesses need special systems that can hold all this data. These systems are like expandable storage rooms that can get bigger whenever needed. This means they can keep storing more and more data without ever running out of room. It’s important because it helps businesses keep all their information safe and use it whenever they need to.

Did you know that nearly 87% of companies are now embracing multicloud strategies?

Dell understands the importance of giving customers the freedom to process data wherever it makes the most sense for them – whether it's on premises, at the edge, or in public clouds.
