Enabling the ecosystem is a critical part of our mission at VMware Developer Center, and World Wide Technology (WWT) is a great example of the ways in which VMware partners are using our products to create integrated SDDC solutions for both traditional and cloud-native applications.
When the EMC Federation needed to validate its Enterprise Hybrid Cloud (EHC) reference architecture, they turned to WWT and its Advanced Technology Center to test six EHC use cases:
- Automation and self-service provisioning
- Secure multi tenancy across network, storage, and compute
- Workload-optimized storage
- Elasticity and service assurance
- Monitoring and resource management
- Metering and chargeback
WWT was able to validate that this reference architecture could enable IT teams to quickly deploy an on-premise hybrid cloud capable of delivering infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to their organization. Curt Stalhood, Technical Solutions Architect for WWT, was on the ground at VMworld to demo these use cases and authored a great post about the solution last fall.
Since then, WWT has been able to leverage this expertise to build out EHC use cases in the ATC at the request of customers, including the ability to manage multiple public clouds, as well as physical servers, from a self-service catalog. This approach allows customers to see how they can incorporate VMware solutions into their environments, and has helped WWT extend its leadership position.
Want to learn more? Visit EMC Federation Day on May 14th in NYC, a one‐day event hosted by WWT where you can get an up-close look at the many “as a service” (aaS) solutions and the Software‐Defined Enterprise stack. Curt Stalhood will be on site to present the SDDC solution and answer questions in person. You can also learn more about WWT’s partnership at http://www2.wwt.com/partner/emc-federation/.
