VCE has launched a new converged infrastructure solution with VMware and EMC to embrace the shift to hybrid Cloud.
The Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud is an integrated solution designed to further speed and simplify the deployment and management of hybrid Cloud environments.
According to a company statement, it drives an even greater degree of convergence by extending the standardised, repeatable practices of the unique “VCE Experience” to the Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud, enabling factory integration of additional VMware and EMC technologies including VMware NSX network virtualisation, VMware vRealize management and orchestration software, and EMC ViPR software-defined-storage.
VCE executive vice president, Todd Pavone, said the shift toward hybrid Cloud computing models was requiring IT organisations to deliver new services at unprecedented rates of speed and agility.
“VCE is continuing its next phase of growth and innovation to deliver converged infrastructure solutions that further simplify and accelerate the deployment of hybrid Cloud environments," he said.
"With this new solution, VCE is scaling its formula of simplicity and outstanding customer experience up and down the cloud infrastructure stack through an expanded portfolio of integrated solutions, taking full advantage of key software-defined datacentre technologies from EMC and VMware.”
All VCE solutions run on its converged infrastructure, which provides pre-integrated, pre-tested and pre-validated compute, network, storage and virtualisation as a single product.
This includes component-level updates, ongoing lifecycle assurance and unified support across all components.
Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud combines converged infrastructure and EMC services into a complete hybrid Cloud.
The solution is a broker of trusted Cloud services capable of supporting traditional and next-gen applications, financial transparency so IT can prove its value to the business, and a seamless and secure management experience, uniting the speed and agility of public Cloud services with the control and security of private Cloud infrastructure.
VCE converged infrastructures features compute and network technology from Cisco, storage and data protection from EMC, and network virtualisation, management and orchestration and server virtualisation solutions from VMware.
VMware general manager, software defined datacentre division, Raghu Raghuram, said the VCE Foundation with one-call support for VMware NSX and the vRealize Cloud management platform enabled customers, "to realise greater agility, value and security through powerful network virtualisation and management platforms."
