VMware unveils new offerings
Vendor introduces vSphere with Operations Management and VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced
VMware Inc, a global provider of virtualisation and cloud infrastructure, has introduced two new offerings to help customers further leverage their investments in VMware vSphere - VMware vSphere with Operations Management and VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced.
According to the company, the introduction of the new offerings will aid customers to reduce CAPEX costs by up to 30%, optimise capacity, improve utilisation by up to 40% and enhance consolidation ratios by 37%.
"Increasingly, customers in the Middle East have standardised on VMware vSphere as the core of their data centres," said Sam Tayan, regional director, VMware MENA. "To help maximise the value of their investments in VMware vSphere, customers require purpose-built, integrated solutions to more efficiently manage, optimise and protect their virtualised environments. We've made it convenient for new and existing customers of VMware vSphere to enhance the core capabilities of their virtual infrastructure with vCenter Operations Management Suite and VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced."
"VMware selected EMC Avamar software to provide the underlying technology for the introduction of VMware vSphere Data Protection," said Shane Jackson, vice president of Marketing, EMC Backup Recovery Systems division. "Customers have enthusiastically adopted this solution, and they expect that we will continue to leverage the technology collaboration between EMC and VMware to deliver enhanced backup and recovery capabilities for customers. The introduction of VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced does just that by incorporating EMC Avamar features that can extend the value proposition for VMware customers. As a result, they gain an easy path to more scalability and additional support for business critical applications which are in demand in rapidly growing virtual environments."
