VMware Cloud On Dell EMC
VMware and Dell unveiled this year perhaps its most significant cloud collaboration ever with the Dell Technologies Cloud. The foundation of the new hybrid cloud platform is VMware Cloud on Dell EMC hardware.
The platform includes VxRail and VMware Cloud Foundation in two similar offerings: Cloud Data Center as-a-Service and the Dell Technologies Cloud Platforms. Cloud Data Center as-a-Service is a consumption-based management service for VMware Cloud on VxRail that is fully managed by Dell Technologies, while Cloud Platforms can be a mix of various Dell EMC infrastructure and Dell Technologies solutions – such as from Pivotal, RSA or VirtuStream -- with VMware Cloud that is managed by customers or partners.
“We’re combining the innovations of Dell EMC, VMware and Pivotal to create a developer friendly, highly-automated, intelligent and efficient cloud architecture,” said Michael Dell on stage at Dell Technologies World. “VMware brings the power of virtualizing all your infrastructure, including the network, and delivering a software-defined future from the edge to the core to multi-cloud.”
The top use cases for VMware Cloud on Dell EMC are infrastructure modernization, application modernization and for sensitive workloads that are either latency-sensitive or apps that must be kept in a specific geography for compliance reasons.
