Hopkinton, MA and Palo Alto, CA - October 09, 2014 -
The first of five planned EMC Federation solutions, the new Federation Software-Defined Data Center Solution provides a completely virtualized data center that is fully automated by software and delivered as a service.
The Federation Software-Defined Data Center Solution will greatly accelerate time to value with a fully engineered, validated and supported offering. The Federation Software-Defined Data Center Solution was jointly developed in the fully staffed and resourced EMC Federation Lab in Palo Alto, Calif. to automate hundreds of orchestration workflows and accelerate ease of deployment.
With a Federation Software-Defined Data Center Solution, mission-critical applications run on infrastructure that delivers greater visibility, manageability, cost control and agility.
The Federation Software-Defined Data Center Solution includes a reference architecture, solution guides and solution-specific workflows engineered and validated in the Federation Lab.
It is built on top of these products from the Federation:
To enable mission critical infrastructure and applications to meet performance and availability expectations, the Federation j oint support teams have established a collaborative support model for service and support. A support call can be initiated with any of the Federation members; that Federation support team will assume primary responsibility for issue resolution and customer satisfaction, including escalation and coordination with additional Federation members.
The Federation Software-Defined Data Center Solution will also be made available through platinum solution providers in EMC's Business Partner Program.
Using best-of-breed technologies, the Federation members will deliver a series of solutions for the new IT agenda, accelerating customer time to value as global organizations redefine IT for the cloud and big data era.
