Advancing and Simplifying Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) Solutions

Intel and VMware enable next-generation software-defined data center (SDDC), hybrid cloud, and virtualized enterprise workload solutions.

Partners in Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI)

For years, Intel and VMware have collaborated to deliver innovative solutions that enable IT to continually transform their data centers. We continue that legacy today to speed up Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) and hybrid cloud deployments, enabling IT to advance innovation, optimize system services in real-time, mobilize workforce and customer interactions, improve security and control, and lower equipment and operational costs.

Intel® Optimized VMware hyper-converged solutions based on Intel® architecture bring together best-in-class compute, storage, networking virtualization, and management offerings. These solutions help simplify and accelerate SDI/SDDC adoption in enterprise and are delivered in different forms including:

· A single hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) device that enables accelerated deployment.

· A converged solution, allowing users the flexibility to mix and match Intel®-based hardware with the appropriate VMware products.

Working together, we enable an optimized, unified hybrid cloud, based on VMware software and Intel architecture. These advanced solutions let IT rapidly develop, automatically deliver, and manage all of their enterprise applications.
