The Rise of Converged Infrastructures: Simplifying IT complexity

Zafar Anjum | Feb. 6, 2015
In this interview with ENM Online Editor Zafar Anjum, Gil Shneorson, Vice President & General Manager VSPEX at EMC, discusses the emergence of converged infrastructures, how they simplify IT and what benefit they bring to businesses.

VSPEX BLUE appliance eliminates complexity. You buy a single appliance that delivers a complete IT solution in a small 2U form factor. Installation of the VSPEX BLUE software is wizard driven, fast and automated to a great extent and eliminates so many of the tedious set up steps traditional systems need - so fast in fact you can literally go from power on to deploying VMs in 15 minutes. The VSPEX BLUE manager and EVO:RAIL software that runs on the appliance make management simple. The user interface is intuitive and responsive and designed to present information in a clear and actionable manner, and when it comes to needing capacity or even more performance just add another node and the system will detected it and add it for you easily.

VSPEX BLUE also had tight security and with VMware's best practise built in it makes securing your data easy.

The VSPEX BLUE Market makes acquiring new and complementary technologies easy too. From inside the BLUE Market customers will be able to shop and download technologies such as CloudArray and RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines. By adding Recoverpont for virtual amchines you can roll back a VM or application to any known good point in time with minimal interruption, which is again simple.

Look, we live in the real world where bad things do sometimes happen, but in the event of any issues, EMC Remote Secure support running on VSPEX BLUE will inform EMC support that there is an event that needs attention. Customers can, from the user interface reach out to EMC over chat or by community which definitely makes support simple.

At EMC, we are fundamental believers that converged infrastructure is the fastest way to deploy infrastructure supporting private/hybrid clouds, giving IT leaders the flexibility to manage costs, enhance service delivery, meet evolving expectations and increase business revenue.  IT leaders want better control over IT services, 100% automated provisioning, scale up/down elastic capacity, and simplified operations, for their private/hybrid clouds, and want to be able to deploy infrastructure supporting it quickly and easily. Delivering a hyper-converged infrastructure appliance such as EMC VSPEX BLUE enables rapid transformation across all layers of IT.
