Purchasing and setting up an on-premises Storage as-a-Service solution is setting the stage; the next step is to start realizing the benefits. We did just that with three different hands-on tests using Dell APEX products.

In the first, we investigated both the total cost of ownership (TCO) and the performance with a heavy workload of APEX Private Cloud and an Amazon Web Services (AWS) instance. APEX delivered good results in both areas.

In another study, we tested how well an APEX Private Cloud handled support for remote users, specifically Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) performance. We tested it with NVIDIA GPUs; the results were strong.

We also looked at enterprise level storage from both APEX Data Storage Services and Amazon Web Services. Get the scoop on both performance and cost-effectiveness.

All of these facts can help you make better buying decisions.
