Balancing the Convenience of the Cloud with the Security of On-Prem


Many organizations now adhere to a cloud-first policy, considering cloud-based technology solutions before all others. They do so because they love the ease and agility of the cloud experience - they can provision services quickly, scale resources on demand, and make payments over time. At the same time, on-premises data storage offers the benefit of enhanced security. That’s why Dell Technologies and Zones look to offer organizations the best of both worlds. Zones Solutions Architect Peter Klipa, alongside our partners from Dell, will discuss how Dell APEX can give your organization the flexibility you need to adapt and thrive.
