INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM 2012, SAN FRANCISCO - September 12, 2012 -
At the Intel Developer Forum 2012, EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) today announced the EMC® Secure Cloud On-Boarding Solution, offering service providers and enterprises with key ingredients to securely migrate mission critical applications between Public, Private and Hybrid clouds. The solution, which will be available in early 2013, combines RSA® Archer™ eGRC compliance and reporting software with Intel TXT technology and EMC VPLEX® virtual storage for secure end-to-end workload migration within and between data centers.
Migrating mission-critical applications without causing downtime for end users or applications remains a top priority for service providers and enterprises deploying cloud infrastructures. The EMC Secure Cloud On-Boarding Solution offers all the components needed to do this quickly, securely and seamlessly. It does so by making sure the underlying hosts that virtual machines are running on are operating securely at multiple locations—and that regardless of what data center the workloads are migrated to, they will only run on trusted servers. Now Information Security Officers and Security Administrators will have an unprecedented view of the hardware trust status within a cloud infrastructure—regardless of location.
The EMC Secure Cloud On-Boarding Solution offers solution providers and enterprises with:
Jason Waxman, General Manager, Cloud Infrastructure Group, Intel Corporation
“The agility and efficiencies offered by cloud computing are attractive to IT decision makers, but security has been a major inhibitor for organizations moving their mission critical applications into a cloud. Intel is collaborating with EMC to strengthen cloud security and enable the VPLEX virtual storage component which is able to migrate workloads over distance to the cloud through its unique cache coherency technology, high data availability, and federation capabilities. We look forward to broad availability in early 2013, and continuing to work with EMC and RSA to enhance hardware-based security and compliance via Intel TXT with leading edge solutions.”
Prasad Rampalli, Senior Vice President, Solutions Group, EMC Corporation
“Intel, EMC and RSA have collaborated to offer service providers and enterprises with the key components for building ‘bullet proof’ security in public, private and Hybrid clouds. Data security remains the #1 impediment to mission critical applications moving to the cloud. With today’s news, Intel, EMC and RSA are now offering technologies that—together—ensure non-disruptive and secure workload migration within and between data centers.”
Manoj Nair, Vice President of Products Management, RSA, The Security Division of EMC
“Ensuring trust in the security of the underlying physical and virtual infrastructure is a pre-requisite for enterprises moving critical workloads to the cloud. We now have the ability to verify and report on the security compliance posture of servers in the virtual environment with the combined power of RSA Archer and Intel TXT. Together our companies are demonstrating that internal and external clouds can be secure, compliant, and auditable for the management of a company's most important business processes.”
The EMC Secure Cloud On-Boarding Solution is being tested with select service providers and enterprises to pilot a formal solution that will be available in early 2013. EMC VPLEX Metro is available today. Availability of RSA Archer support for Intel TXT will be generally available early in 2013.
