By CIOReview | Wednesday, May 7, 2014

LAS VEGAS: EMC Corporation has joined the cloud pack with the release of EMC Hybrid Cloud solution, enabling the enterprises to quickly, easily, and cost-effectively build a hybrid cloud that embodies the best of public cloud services and private cloud infrastructure.

“EMC Hybrid Cloud is the bridge between traditional applications and next-generation applications, deployable across a common software-defined architecture,” writes Josh Kahn, Vice President at Solutions Marketing of EMC Corporation in the blogpost.

The EMC Hybrid Cloud solution is a new end-to-end reference architecture that is built upon EMC's private cloud solutions and allows customers to rapidly integrate with multiple public clouds to create a unified hybrid cloud as well as enhance performance, security and compliance of an enterprise cloud platform.

The new solution is rooted on a Software-Defined Data Center architecture consisting of technologies from a variety of companies under EMC group: EMC storage and data protection, Pivotal CF Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and the Pivotal Big Data Suite, VMware Cloud Management and Virtualization Solutions, and VMware vCloud Hybrid Service.

The solution is available in three modules for IT, developers, and of business. The Business User is an easy to use self-service portal that offers a personalized catalog of services and is charged only for what they use. The EMC Hybrid Cloud Developer will have on-demand access to the most modern and consistent development environments, and with Cloud IT Professional users can benefit from the solution's support for both private and public clouds, competitive technology composition, ease of deployment and more effective IT management, smarter health and performance and control over what their users can provision.

“The new EMC Hybrid Cloud solution with VMware vCloud Hybrid Service will enable organizations to quickly and seamlessly extend their data centers into the cloud using the same tools and processes they already have in place,” says Bill Fathers, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Hybrid Cloud Services Business Unit at VMware.
