BROCADE and fluid Operations (fluidOps), a leading provider of cloud and data management solutions based on semantic technologies, have announced the completion of a technology integration project between them.
The project aims to simplify and automate the deployment, management and automation of EMC VSPEX Proven Infrastructure solutions for small and mid-sized organizations, Brocade said in a statement.
Specifically, fluidOps eCloudManager and Brocade VDX Ethernet fabric and Brocade Fibre Channel SAN (storage area network) switches have been integrated and validated by both companies to achieve what they claimed were breakthrough levels of cloud automation and network management services for a complete EMC VSPEX Proven Infrastructures solution.
Brocade networking innovation integrated with fluidOps eCloudManager allows customers to achieve new levels of operational efficiency by providing complete infrastructure management to enable simple, efficient and flexible virtualization solutions that scale to meet their needs, the companies claimed.
“As increasing numbers of small and mid-sized organizations make the transition toward virtualisation and the cloud, they are deploying EMC VSPEX solutions to mitigate the challenges associated with managing IT infrastructures and ensuring application availability,” said Jason Nolet (pic), vice president of the Data Centre Networking Group at Brocade.
“Our integration efforts make this considerably easier, especially for businesses with limited IT staff and resources, by enabling eCloudManager and Brocade network solutions to provide a complete data centre view, including servers, networking, storage, hypervisors, applications and business resources.,” he said.
EMC VSPEX Proven Infrastructure was designed to offer customers a complete virtual infrastructure package to meet the challenge of transitioning their legacy IT environments into an agile, automated, cloud-ready infrastructure.
With a modular design, VSPEX enables customers to accelerate their IT transformation and consists of partner hypervisor, server and network technologies along with EMC storage and backup solutions.
“Through our partnership with Brocade, we have achieved unprecedented unified management capabilities that allow customers to extract the highest value out of their EMC VSPEX solutions by providing all of the components and workflows needed for IT to become a key enabler for business success,” said Dr Andreas Eberhart, managing director at fluidOps.
