VCE Vscale™ architecture delivers ultimate agility, simplicity, assurance of adapting to the varying applications, scale, and flexibility needs for customers’ diverse operational models. VCE™ Technology Extensions provide an innovative way to expand and enhance Vblock® Systems and VxBlock™ Systems converged infrastructure. The Technology Extensions let you quickly and dramatically increase processing power or add storage capacity, without typical technology risks. Tightly integrated, and fully tested and validated, VCE Technology Extensions bring the convenience and assurance of proven VCE engineering expertise to expanded infrastructure.
The compute and storage Technology Extensions are tested and validated at the VCE factory and come with VCE’s Release Compatibility Matrix (RCM) assurance. This means that you can count on seamless integration to deploy quickly, simplify operations, and provide architectural consistency with your Vblock System converged infrastructure.
OPTIMIZED TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP
With the Technology Extensions, you can create a ready pool of resources for compute and storage within your existing or new Vblock System-based converged infrastructure environment. These resources can be deployed as needed and managed using common tools to improve resource utilization, ensure investment protection, and optimize the cost of ownership.
VCE TECHNOLOGY EXTENSION FOR STORAGE
The VCE Technology Extension for storage integrates EMC® Isilon® scale-out storage with a Vblock System to more cost-effectively consolidate and manage enterprise data and applications. With the Technology Extension, existing Vblock Systems can easily be expanded to incorporate large-scale user data for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), infrastructure modernization, highly-efficient enterprise data lakes for Big Data, Hadoop data analytics, and scale out NAS.
By enabling multi-use, multi-protocol, and multi-tenant capabilities, the VCE Technology Extension for EMC Isilon storage accelerates adoption of emerging applications such as HDFS. Resiliency, scalability and performance optimization is designed in, simplifying ongoing operations.
VCE TECHNOLOGY EXTENSION FOR COMPUTE
The VCE Technology Extension for Cisco UCS® compute utilizes next-generation Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) technology to process compute-intensive applications — from powering specialized graphics processing units to performing seismic modeling, to handling digital media transcoding and HIPAA privacy and security regulations.
New compute form factors and an incremental deployment model provide better choices without increased management overhead — for a superior TCO. In addition, seamless integration with Vblock System converged infrastructure enables the Technology Extension resources to be consistently provisioned, monitored, and managed.
