VCE, the joint venture founded by VMware, Cisco and EMC, has unveiled the next wave of its converged infrastructure platform, offering greater flexibility and scalability along with enhanced management tools to provide a unified view of the data centre.
VCE's VBlock platform offers pre-built and tested infrastructure for cloud computing and virtualisation, but the refresh introduces the Vscale architecture, making it easier to scale up by adding resources to VBlocks or to scale out by using a network fabric to connect additional resource blocks.
VCE is also enabling customers to choose VMware's NSX for software-defined networking as an alternative to Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure which was the only supported option with VBlock before now.
Tying it all together is Vision Intelligent Operations 3.0, an updated version of VCE's management platform.
This delivers a unified view of the data centre infrastructure, and plays a key role in making sure that additional resources added to the VBlock infrastructure are configured correctly.
