Today, VCE announced a new series of Vblock Systems and solutions, which include pre-integrated, pre-tested and pre-validated management software from VMware, called the VCE Integrated Solution for Cloud Management with VMware. This integrated solution will utilize VMware vRealize Suite, a cloud management platform for managing private, public or hybrid clouds.
This is a great option for VCE customers who are looking for the power and fast time to value of converged infrastructure. This new offering can quickly deliver and manage cloud infrastructure and application services with the control IT needs.
The VCE Integrated Solution for Cloud Management with VMware is a comprehensive foundational offering, and is a result of the longtime partnership between VCE and VMware. This solution will provide functionality and initial start up services to get an initial private cloud foundation up and running quickly using VMware management technologies. It will also give customers the option to extend to public cloud services with a unified management experience.
VMware vRealize Suite contains the products formerly known as vCloud Automation Suite, vCenter Operations Management Suite, vCenter Log Insight and IT Business Management Suite. VMware vRealize Suite integrates the capabilities of all of these solutions to deliver a powerful hybrid cloud management platform.
VMware vRealize Suite is optimized for VMware vSphere, but also works with Microsoft Hyper-V, and public clouds, such as VMware vCloud Air and Amazon Web Services, as well as those based on OpenStack. As a result, VCE customers will be able to maximize the value of their Vblock System investment.
As customers shift to managing diverse environments, the need for unified management solutions is crucial. At VMware, we are uniquely and strongly positioned to deliver this with VMware vRealize Suite.
We look forward to continuing to support organizations as they shift to managing hybrid and flexible software-defined data centers, and are proud to work closely with partners like VCE.
