In a market where compute and storage resources can be bought on demand with a credit card, vendors
of on-premises hardware are seeking to tip the scales in their favor with ‘cloud-like’ pricing models that
eliminate the need to commit capital to new platforms. At Dell EMC World in May, Dell Financial Services
(DFS) rolled out Cloud Flex for HCI (hyperconverged infrastructure), part of the company’s push to evangelize
the start-small-and-scale-up virtues of HCI technology.
Cloud Flex lets customers acquire equipment on an all-opex basis, with no up-front product cost, steady
monthly payments that reduce by up to 30% annually, and the ability to turn in equipment any time after
12 months without penalty. It’s part of a series of moves by Dell EMC meant to ease the financial risk of
sticking with on-premises infrastructure in a cloud-enabled world
