EMC Unveils Latest Cloud Offering

Launches the Native Hybrid Cloud, turnkey pivotal cloud Foundry developer platform that’s ready to use in hybrid operating models in as few as two days

EMC Corporation has announced the latest addition to its cloud portfolio, Native Hybrid Cloud (NHC) – a turnkey platform for cloud-native application development and deployment. As a fully integrated and engineered platform, NHC enables enterprises to innovate and scale faster. It helps enterprise IT and operations teams to better collaborate with developers, allowing for rapid application development and delivery while providing the needed protection, controls and insight to IT.

According to the press release, NHC helps enterprises realize the promise of cloud-native applications and DevOps. The platform has a number of components, all validated to work together. NHC leverages Pivotal Cloud Foundry that delivers platform capabilities that enhance developer productivity, enable operational excellence, and provide enterprise grade security, scalability, high availability, and operational control, so customers can accelerate their time to market for software solutions. NHC brings developers a rich set of services for deploying, scaling, and managing the application life cycle while providing IT the visibility, control, and financial insights by including logging, monitoring, and reporting, showback, application performance, big data analytics, and management and automation through open APIs. For enterprises seeking real-time business insights, NHC offers an add-on option that produces a comprehensive toolkit for data scientists to perform big data analytics, delivering more differentiated value.

NHC is built on the VCE VxRack System 1000 providing a turnkey IaaS experience for application development, deployment, and operations. VMware vSphere with FLEX Nodes is for customers looking to leverage what they know, a turnkey OpenStack option for those wanting to leverage the OpenStack ecosystem with Neutrino Nodes. VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes provides a simple rack-scale management and orchestration capability for cloud-native IaaS stacks, dramatically simplifying “day two” operations and scaling infrastructure elastically to match the needs of the. For customer deployments that require an off-premise IaaS option, EMC Native Hybrid Cloud offers day one support for leading public clouds: Virtustream Enterprise Cloud, VMware vCloud Air, Amazon Web Services (AWS), or Microsoft Azure. For many enterprise businesses, Native Hybrid Cloud aligns closer to the agile development strategy as it delivers a turnkey developer platform for cloud-native applications.

Fully supported end-to-end by EMC, sustained as one product and deployable in days, Native Hybrid Cloud enables enterprises to significantly reduce the cost, time, complexity and uncertainty associated with building, deploying and maintaining a cloud-native solution and navigating the cultural shift to DevOps.

Chad Sakac, President, VCE, Converged Platform Division of EMC said, “In the new digital economy, innovation and agility trumps all. Enterprises differentiate themselves through rapid innovation and agile services delivery. Trying to build, iterate and maintain these stacks built on a series of constantly moving elements is completely a waste of resources – resources that can be better applied elsewhere, because EMC is investing many hundreds of engineers to make it a turnkey platform. An engineered platform that integrates cloud-native IaaS with Pivotal’s cloud-native platform, EMC’s Native Hybrid Cloud overcomes the challenge in business and IT transformation to enable developers to deliver innovation through new applications, software and digital services better and faster.”

As per Kit Colbert, VP and GM, Cloud-Native Applications, VMware, “VMware technologies once again underpin an innovative hybrid cloud solution, with the new Native Hybrid Cloud. VMware vSphere and the Photon Platform with the ability to support both structured and unstructured PaaS, creates a robust, on-premises cloud-native platform that can help enterprises rapidly deliver innovative software and applications today.”

EMC Native Hybrid Cloud with VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes and FLEX Nodes will be available starting in Q3, 2016.
