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.
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.
These devices are radically simple building block solutions for your SDDC environment. EVO SDDC for instance, combines compute, network, storage, and management into a hyper-converged infrastructure appliance.
The integration of McAfee® Network Security Platform into VMware NSX* allows IT to dynamically protect, manage, remediate, and support compliance in their SDI with next-generation Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) services. This enhances the ability of VMware NSX* to securely deliver next-generation network virtualization for enterprises.
VMware Virtual SAN* (VSAN) software running on hardware powered by Intel® architecture delivers a high-performance, scalable storage solution that easily scales and helps reduce the total cost of ownership of storage by as much as 50 percent.
Andrea Nelson, Intel's Director of Storage Marketing and Charles Fan, SVP, VMware discuss the benefits of Virtual SAN, software-defined hyper-converged storage, and the value of cost-effective scalable enterprise storage to data centers.
