VMware introduced VMware Cloud on Dell EMC, which will provide simple, more secure and scalable infrastructure delivered as-a-service to customers’ on-premises data center and edge locations.
Featuring VMware’s high-performance compute, storage and networking software powered by vSphere, vSAN and NSX running on Dell EMC VxRail hyperconverged infrastructure, the service will be fully managed by VMware, enabling customers to focus on business innovation and differentiation.
VMware Cloud on Dell EMC will be core to the Dell Technologies Cloud Data Center-as-a-Service solution.
Modern enterprises rely on hybrid cloud to help accelerate the delivery of innovative services to the business and to ultimately deliver new customer experiences. VMware is investing in solutions that address today’s multi-cloud environments as well as advancing hybrid cloud operations from the data center to the cloud to the edge.
VMware Cloud on Dell EMC—a cloud service—will combine public cloud simplicity, agility and economics with the security, control and performance of on-premises infrastructure. This unique approach will simplify the customer experience enabling them to quickly consume the service with maximum agility and efficiency.
“Whether they’re running infrastructure on-premises or in the cloud, organizations value a cloud operating model,” said Mark Lohmeyer, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Platform Business Unit, VMware. “VMware Cloud on Dell EMC will deliver that cloud experience to organizations that need to maintain data and applications on-premises—completely transforming how they acquire, deploy and manage infrastructure. The service will provide consistent infrastructure and operations across cloud, data center and edge, freeing organizations to drive innovation and deliver business value while VMware operates the entire infrastructure end-to-end.”
