CLOUD PLATFORMS

VMWARE CLOUD FOUNDATION

WINNER: OVERALL

With the aim of making private clouds easier to build and maintain, VMware launched Cloud Foundation through integrating several of its technologies -- ultimately making it possible to build a complete cloud in as little as a few hours. Cloud Foundation brings together VMware's vSphere and Virtual SAN hyper-converged software along with network virtualization via VMware NSX. The result is that Cloud Foundation "allows for scalability to accommodate future growth demands" while also providing an up to 8X reduction in installation time, said Eric Barnhart, vice president for Dell EMC and VMware Solutions at Phoenix-based Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas.
