VMware's vCloud Initiative

VMware's Dan Chu: "Enterprises are ready for cloud computing"

"Our strategic relationship with VMware will help ensure that Terremark continues to stay at the leading-edge of the technological advances that will shape the IT industry for years to come," said Manuel D. Medina, Terremark’s Chairman and CEO, as Terremark Worldwide today announced its relationship with VMware as part of the VMware vCloud Initiative.

VMwares Virtual Datacenter Operating System (VDC-OS) is an integral component of the Enterprise Cloud, which provides enterprises a revolutionary managed platform for mission-critical applications and infrastructure.

Terremarks Enterprise Cloud customers buy a dedicated resource pool of processing, memory, storage and networking, from which they can deploy servers on demand, giving customers more flexibility and agility over the traditional server-based model and allowing for a precise and dynamic allocation of computing resources as needed.

Enterprises are ready for cloud computing and VMwares ecosystem of world-class partners, such as Terremark, offers our customers innovative, complete cloud solutions, said Dan Chu, vice president of Emerging Products and Markets for VMware. Terremarks Enterprise Cloud provides the utility-based computing capabilities that companies need to meet their growing IT demands. Our work with Terremark is designed to help our mutual customers have the flexibility and scalability to manage their IT infrastructure most efficiently.

The Enterprise Cloud is powered by an enhanced version of Terremarks industry-leading Infinistructure utility computing platform, which combines VMwares industry-leading virtualization suite with Terremarks proprietary service management platform, and leverages the companys top-tier data centers as well as access to massive and diverse network connectivity. As a partner in VMwares vCloud, Terremark is able to leverage the advanced mobility, reliability and broad application support VMware Infrastructure uniquely offers enterprises.

As we continue to work with leaders like VMware to bring superior cloud computing services to enterprises, our customers will benefit from the scalability and control the Enterprise Cloud provides, said Medina,

VMwares vCloud is a common set of cloud computing platform services with broad application support for enterprises and cloud computing providers. More than 100 major vendors are participating in the overall vCloud initiative, and the entire vCloud partner ecosystem can be found here.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lavi, a Nutanix DevOps Solution Architect, explored the ways that Nutanix technologies empower teams to react faster than ever before and connect teams in ways that were either too complex or simply impossible with traditional infrastructures.
According to the IDC InfoBrief, Sponsored by Nutanix, “Surviving and Thriving in a Multi-cloud World,” multicloud deployments are now the norm for enterprise organizations – less than 30% of customers report using single cloud environments. Most customers leverage different cloud platforms across multiple service providers. The interoperability of data and applications between these varied cloud environments is growing in importance and yet access to hybrid cloud capabilities where a single application runs across clouds remains elusive to most organizations. As companies eagerly seek out ways to make the multi cloud environment a reality, these new updates from Nutanix provide additional capabilities to streamline the implementation of their cloud services deployments.

In today's always-on world, customer expectations have changed. Competitive differentiation is delivered through rapid software innovations, the ability to respond to issues quickly and by releasing high-quality code with minimal interruptions. DevOps isn't some far off goal; it's methodologies and practices are a response to this demand. The demand to go faster. The demand for more uptime. The demand to innovate. In this keynote, we will cover the Nutanix Developer Stack.

"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
