VCE Announces New Converged Solution with VMware and EMC Technologies, Further Simplifying and Accelerating Customers' Journey to the Hybrid Cloud
New VCE Solution Extends Full “VCE Experience” With Factory Integration and One-call support for VMware NSX, VMware vRealize Cloud Management and EMC ViPR
RICHARDSON, Texas – Feb. 4, 2015 – VCE, the leader in converged infrastructure systems, today announced VCE Foundation for Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud, a new integrated solution designed to further speed and simplify the deployment and management of hybrid cloud environments. The new solution drives an even greater degree of convergence by extending the standardized, 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 virtualization, VMware vRealize™ management and orchestration software, and EMC® ViPR® software-defined-storage.
Additionally, customers that wish to deploy these individual elements can do so with the same VCE Experience of full factory integration and single-call support.
“The shift toward hybrid cloud computing models is requiring IT organizations to deliver new services at unprecedented rates of speed and agility,” said Todd Pavone, executive vice president, Product Strategy and Development, VCE. “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. 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 data center technologies from EMC and VMware.”
All VCE solutions run on its proven, industry-leading converged infrastructure, which provides the VCE Experience as pre-integrated, pre-tested and pre-validated compute, network, storage and virtualization as a single product. This includes seamless 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 feature best-of-breed compute and network technology from Cisco, storage and data protection from EMC, and network virtualization, management and orchestration and server virtualization solutions from VMware.
“The VCE Foundation with one-call support for VMware NSX™ and the vRealize™ cloud management platform will enable customers to realize greater agility, value and security through powerful network virtualization and management platforms,” said Raghu Raghuram, executive vice president and general manager, Software-Defined Data Center Division, VMware.
VCE delivers a broad range of converged infrastructure solutions for enterprises and service providers globally that dramatically reduce the cost of IT, improve time to market and accelerate the adoption of hybrid cloud computing models. Based on best-of-breed compute, network, storage, data protection and virtualization technologies, VCE solutions provide the infrastructure foundation for horizontal applications, vertical industry offerings and application development environments, enabling customers to focus on innovation and business outcomes instead of integrating, validating and managing IT infrastructure.
