EMC Corporation, has announced that it has expanded its VCE® VxRack System 1000 to provide a turnkey cloud-native IaaS experience through new “Neutrino” nodes. The flexibility of the VxRack System is rooted in its rack-scale design, allowing enterprises, ISV’s and service providers to leverage different node types for different workloads as they accelerate their digital transformation initiatives.
The VxRack System enables workloads to operate at scale by providing a fully engineered hyper-converged rack-scale system – compute, storage and networking – with integrated management. This delivers simplified data center operations and reduces total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to a traditional SAN, and easy scaling-on-demand.
The VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes makes the complex simple. Customers can deploy an enterprise-grade cloud-native IaaS in just a few days with built-in automation as well as dynamically provision resources for the first time in less than one hour. In addition, the software automation layer enables simple “day two” operations including robust monitoring and reporting, single click software upgrades, and single vendor support of these open-source, cloud-native IaaS and data stacks, automating what many customers have discovered is a very complex changing ecosystem and operational tasks that require rare and deep expertise.
VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes is a foundation for multiple cloud-native services including OpenStack, VMware Photon Platform, and Apache Hadoop. VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes serves as one of the underlying IaaS options for the new EMC® Native Hybrid Cloud (NHC) platform announced today. NHC is an engineered turnkey platform that delivers developer and infrastructure services in two days. NHC enables the DevOps model with an “it just works” experience and brings developers a rich set of services to rapidly build, deploy, scale and manage the cloud-native application life cycle while providing the needed visibility, control and financial insights to IT.
