EMC Hybrid Cloud Solution is Easy to Deploy and Secure
May 08, 2014
IT administrators are looking for a solution that can help profile applications and identify an efficient, secure and at the same time cost-effective IT operational model across both private and public clouds. They have to select between the speed and agility of public cloud services, and the control and security of a private cloud infrastructure.
EMC (News - Alert) Corporation has introduced the EMC hybrid cloud solution, which will help build a hybrid cloud quickly and without major investments. The hybrid cloud solution enables IT organizations to use services from both private and public clouds to optimize visibility and control on the best location needed to run business applications.
Officials explained that the EMC hybrid cloud solution will serve as an end-to-end reference architecture that is based on EMC’s private cloud solutions. Now customers can easily integrate with multiple public clouds and deploy a unified hybrid cloud.
Also the performance, security, and compliance of the private cloud is enhanced with the delivery of compatible, on-demand services from EMC-powered cloud service providers.
The cloud solution is based on a software-defined data center architecture that encompasses technologies like the EMC storage and data protection, Pivotal CF Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and the Pivotal Big Data Suite.
The EMC hybrid cloud supports VMware cloud management and virtualization solutions, along with VMware vCloud Hybrid Service, and will soon offer support for OpenStack and Microsoft (News - Alert) environments, added officials.
The EMC foundational services help streamline the implementation of the EMC hybrid cloud solution within a customers’ IT environment. EMC’s portfolio of advanced services help customers to leverage all the features of the hybrid cloud, application modernization, workload migration and the IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) models.
IT professionals will greatly benefit from the combined private and public cloud solution, as it is easy to deploy and helps them improve their IT management capabilities, enhance health and performance monitoring, and get complete control over the IT environment.
EMC Corporation (News

., the developer of an innovative new rack-scale flash storage architecture for I/O-intensive in-memory databases and Big Data workloads like SAP (News
