BERLIN, Germany (Microsoft Tech∙Ed Europe), - November 09, 2010 -
November 9, 2010 – EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced new reference architectures, best practices and technology offerings based upon EMC information infrastructure and Microsoft virtualization environments – including Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V and System Center – that provide customers with measureable steps to reduce costs and increase efficiency. With new solutions from EMC, customers can deploy more flexible, resilient and protected Microsoft virtualization environments and accelerate their respective journey to the private cloud.
“Customers need computing environments that can dynamically pool and allocate computer, network and storage resources so their core applications can be deployed quickly and scaled to meet spikes in demand as they occur,” said Dai Vu, Director of solutions marketing in the Windows Server and Cloud division at Microsoft Corp. “By using technologies from EMC and Microsoft, customers can increase control and customization, and scale efficiently to provide the agility required to deploy more projects to the cloud.”
New Virtualization Solutions Help Realize Full Potential of Technology Investments
EMC solutions for Microsoft Hyper-V environments help customers meet their requirements to extract the highest value from their investments through optimized deployment, scalability, consolidation and protection within virtualized environments.
To complement these new solutions EMC Global Services provides customers with a broad portfolio of consulting offerings that extend the value of Microsoft Hyper-V and optimize deployments to retain flexibility, control costs and enable future growth. Services include strategic design, planning, migration and deployment of Microsoft Exchange, Hyper-V, SQL Server, Windows Server and other platforms.
“While a growing number of organizations have taken advantage of the tremendous efficiency and savings that can be realized with server virtualization technology, broad-based adoption throughout the data center often stalls due to a number of challenges including scalability, reliability and ease of deployment,” said Brian Garrett, Vice President, ESG Lab, Enterprise Strategy Group. “EMC Unified Storage and Microsoft Hyper-V server virtualization technologies can be used to address all of these challenges and create a flexible and highly available virtual infrastructure.”
New Storage and Security Technologies for Virtualized Storage Environments
From the desktop to the datacenter, new offerings from EMC can help simplify management and enhance identity protection within virtualized storage environments:
“With the Digital Universe expanding by a factor of 44 over the next ten years, organizations will be harder pressed than ever to effectively manage their data centers, maximize storage assets and meet service-level agreements,” said Michael O’Neill, Vice President of Alliances at EMC. “EMC can help customers seize control of the information explosion and accelerate the cost, service-level, and agility benefits of a private cloud architecture by optimizing EMC storage and Microsoft virtualization environments.”
