EMC releases new VSPEX solution
Solution allows ‘greater tech choice’ when deploying virtualised SharePoint
EMC today announced the release of its new EMC VSPEX Proven Infrastructure configurations for virtualised SharePoint environments, solutions that are designed to accelerate deployment and adoption of such environments.
"VSPEX is based on best-of-breed storage, virtualisation, server and network technology," the company said.
VSPEX allows users to choose the hypervisor, server, and network technology they prefer to supplement EMC's VNX and VNXe unified storage and EMC Data Domain, EMC Avamar and EMC NetWorker backup and recovery solutions designed to work with SharePoint environments. According to EMC, the VSPEX for SharePoint configuration can scale from 1,000 up to 10,000 users and can be used with all of the private cloud solutions in the VSPEX catalog.
"When used with EMC's award-winning unified storage and backup and recovery technologies in a virtualised SharePoint environment, VSPEX can help customers tune SharePoint storage performance in 80% less time, shorten SharePoint provisioning by four times, and reduce time to manage backup by 81%."
EMC also announced updates for all 14 of the original VSPEX configurations.
"EMC VSPEX is a simple, efficient, and flexible reference architecture optimised for the most popular use cases for customers moving to cloud computing," said Jeremy Burton, Executive Vice President, Product Operations and Marketing, EMC Corporation.
"Virtualized SharePoint has become a mission-critical application and therefore needs to be managed and protected - the new EMC VSPEX for SharePoint enables customers to accelerate their IT transformation with faster deployments, simplified management, backup, and storage provisioning while decreasing data volume, lowering the cost and complexity of management as well as data security and governance risk."
