San Francisco: Enterprise software major VMware has announced the availability of second generation of VMware Cloud on Dell EMC that will enable IT teams to transform operation, management and protection of their on-premises infrastructure to a cloud model.
Jointly developed with Dell Technologies, this VMware service delivers simple, more secure and scalable infrastructure as-a-service to customers' on-premises data centre and edge locations.
"Organisations can migrate existing VMware-based workloads immediately to this cloud service, eliminating any re-development, re-factoring, or architectural rework and related costs," said Fidelma Russo, senior vice president and general manager, VMware Cloud on Dell EMC.
Additionally, it maximizes the value from existing IT investments—eliminating the potential need for point IT tools and related processes.
Now available in the US, the second generation of VMware Cloud on Dell EMC introduces several new key capabilities like business continuity support as virtual desktops are a critical capability for enabling business continuity as more people work from home.
VMware Horizon enables enterprises to offer their remote workforces more secure access to their desktops and applications - especially valuable in highly regulated industries such as healthcare and financial services.
VMware Cloud on Dell EMC is now fully certified for VMware Horizon to deliver virtual desktops at the edge or in the data centre, said the company.
VMware Cloud on Dell EMC now offers support for backup and recovery with certification of ‘Dell EMC PowerProtect Data Manager' to protect customers' workloads.
Additionally, the service supports other leading backup and recovery solutions.
"With the second generation of VMware Cloud on Dell EMC, we are extending this cloud service capability to a broader set of enterprise use cases," said Deepak Patil, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Platforms and Solutions, Dell Technologies.
