Solve Data Latency, Security and Compliance Challenges

Challenges with VMware Cloud on Dell EMCs

VMware Cloud on Dell EMC, now available through VMware Cloud Partner Navigator, is a fully managed hybrid cloud service that is delivered as-a-service to data center and edge locations, offering a simple, secure and scalable infrastructure.

VMware’s industry leading compute, storage and networking software is integrated with enterprise-class Dell EMC hardware, enabling cloud providers to drive any enterprise workload. This unique approach empowers providers and customers to focus on business innovation and differentiation, while VMware operates the entire infrastructure end-to-end. It offers true local cloud as-a-service capabilities with the entire set of compliance certification badges: ISO 27001/17/18, SOC 2 Type 1, CCPA, GDPR.

This second-gen solution expands new node types to cover mission-critical workloads with heavy memory usage; reduces operational complexity with bulk workload migration, offers full end-to-end vRealize Automation, vRealize Operations and Tanzu Kubernetes Grid verification and provides critical workload licensing support with multi-cluster support within the same chassis.

Initially available in the US only.

Provider and Customer Challenges in a Multi-Cloud World

Data Latency, Security and Compliance Challenges
  • Difficulty migrating all workloads to the cloud due to data latency and performance requirements
  • Security and/or regulatory requirements necessitating workloads to be on-premises
Multiple Operating Teams and Resource Constraint
  • Desire to focus on business-centric app management vs. managing underlying infrastructure
  • Limited resources in traditional data center operations to support multiple operating models
Poor Productivity and Slow Modernization
  • Pressure to deliver advantages of speed and agility along with benefits of the cloud service model
  • Modernization requirements mandating speed and agility for new infrastructure setup and deployment
Evaluating requirements to becoming an MSP

Reduce Operational Complexity, Increase Agility

VMware Cloud on Dell EMC is jointly engineered between VMware and Dell EMC. It is based on Dell EMC’s industry leading VxRail appliances, running VMware’s Cloud Foundation stack, which includes virtualized compute, networking and storage.

Even though it runs in a customer or partner datacenter, it is delivered as a cloud service: operated and monitored 24/7 by VMware’s Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team and available as a monthly subscription, without upfront investment.

Running in any data center, VMware Cloud on Dell EMC is ideal for situations where your customers might not want to run workloads in a public cloud or hosted environment. Examples of target use cases include Advanced VDI workloads, low latency or high bandwidth applications, environments with data sovereignty requirements, or edge computing use cases such as manufacturing, healthcare or retail.

Cloud providers can build upon this service to deliver added value to their end customers:

Freedom to choose where the infrastructure is deployed: on-premises at a customer location to satisfy bandwidth or latency requirements, or their own data center to leverage advanced network interconnectivity capabilities
Value-added services such as backup, disaster recovery, migration and external storage
Ability to segment their workloads with multi-cluster support
Advanced and Distributed VDI Workloads

Advanced and Distributed VDI Workloads

Deliver remote workspaces – VMware Cloud on Dell EMC delivers powerful infrastructure for virtual desktops and apps to power today's evolving remote workspace needs.
Enterprise-class security – Offers certified support for VMware Horizon, enabling delivery of enterprise-class security and compliance in step with organizational requirements.
Superior workspace density – Facilitates high performance for strong workspace density and end-user experience when running the most demanding apps.
Data Center and Edge Location Modernization

Data Center and Edge Location Modernization

Refreshing hardware – Facilitates updating of aging, non-virtualized, on-premises data center to easily scale and build modern day apps.
Streamlining operations – Enables real IT innovation and eliminates maintenance downtime with a consistent infrastructure across all compute areas, including on-premises, edge and cloud.
Switching from a CapEx to an OpEx model – Allows shifting to a more predictable OpEx model with costs based on usage, eliminating the overestimating or underestimating of CapEx.
Accelerate Modernization

Accelerate Modernization

Development agility – Simplifies operations and quickly provides developers with the environment they need to deliver innovation, using modern automation tools such as VMware vRealize Suite, VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, and Ansible.
Elastic capacity – Allows rapid standing up of the needed capacity or extending capacity for scaled-up services.
Traditional application support – Supports traditional and modern apps while moving to new development platforms without extensive re-platforming.
Data-Latency and Sovereignty-Sensitive Workloads

Data-Latency and Sovereignty-Sensitive Workloads

Low-latency requirements – Enables real-time decisions with data at edge locations without waiting for data to make a round trip to central data center.
Data security – Allows IT decision-makers to retain control of the IT environment to protect their intellectual property.
Regulatory compliance – Adheres to governmental compliance in certain industries to host data on-premises.
