TOP REASONS WHY CUSTOMERS VIRTUALIZE THEIR SERVERS WITH EMC VSPEX Transform your environment with simple, efficient, and flexible virtualization solutions The EMC® VSPEX™ is a flexible architecture solution that allows IT to quickly and consistently deploy a virtualized infrastructure to consolidate servers and applications that help reduce capital and operational expenses. SIMPLIFY YOUR ENVIRONMENT 1 Flexible architectures to suit your IT needs 2 Simplify management 3 4 VSPEX solutions are built with proven best-in-class technologies to create complete, modular, pre-validated virtualization offerings that allow for flexibility, faster deployments, greater efficiency, and lower risk in your IT transformation. Built on a highly flexible EMC storage and backup architecture, VSPEX enables you to combine industry-leading compute, network, and virtualization technologies into a pre-validated infrastructure. Predictable levels of performance eliminate the planning, sizing, and configuration burden of moving from a physical to virtual server environment. Manage your entire virtual server infrastructure from a single point of control. Using VMware® vSphere® or Microsoft® System Center, your organization can accelerate provisioning time, manage virtual machines from a central location, and monitor the performance of virtual machines and their hosts. Add storage with ease with EMC Unisphere™ provisioning wizards that apply best practices to simplify the process. Provision 500 Microsoft Exchange mailboxes in less than two minutes. Set up one terabyte VMware or Hyper-V™ datastore in 10 minutes. Simplify backup and recovery with one solution built for virtual environments Simplify virtual machine backup and recoveries with EMC Avamar® and EMC Data Domain®, and you’ll have one solution to protect your VMware, Hyper-V, and physical environments. Implement comprehensive backup at both the guest and image level. Recovery is fast and easy with file-level restore or full bare metal VMDK restore—all in a single step. Plus, you can further simplify VMware protection with automated virtual machine discovery, policy assignment, and tracking via integration with VMware vStorage API for Data Protection (VADP) and vCenter™. Improve administrator productivity Provide application-aware storage provisioning from within the application management interface in different hypervisor environments. Enable administrators to manage storage provisioning for Microsoft Hyper-V and SharePoint® from the Microsoft Windows® operating environment using EMC Storage Integrator (ESI), and reduce time to provision by 75 percent. ESI lets Windows and application administrators provision storage for Hyper-V environments and map a Hyper-V environment to EMC storage. Virtual Storage Integrator (VSI), the EMC Plug-in framework for VMware vSphere 5 gives you greater insight than ever before into the storage mapping and connectivity details right from vCenter. Add storage quickly and easily for your virtual machines from vCenter with VSI. With VSI you can leverage the array’s storage efficiencies such as compression and fast clone for both block and NFS based datastores. h a n d out IMPROVE YOUR ENVIROMENT AND ACHIEVE HIGHER AVAILABILITY 5 Application high availability and enhancement Realize application high availability with VMware’s HA and vMotion®, along with Microsoft’s Quick Migration, to eliminate or reduce planned downtime and unplanned outages. The EMC VNX® series provides for DVR-like application consistent snap shots for point-in-time recoverability. With EMC FAST VP (Fully Automated Storage Tiering for Virtual Pools), you can dynamically tune and increase service levels. Increase database performance by deploying EMC FAST Cache and increase Oracle IOPs by 180 percent. Run virtualized Microsoft SQL® databases three times faster, and manage and tune virtualized SQL databases in 80 percent less time. 6 Provision application storage on demand 7 Speed up your backups Add unified storage on demand with the VNX series. Recapture valuable storage capacity and reduce the data footprint by up to 50 percent with the EMC VNX series’ built-in features such as thin provisioning, file deduplication, and compression. Accelerate virtual server backup times from days to minutes by reducing network and CPU utilization with EMC Avamar’s variable-length, client-side deduplication. Get faster VMware image restores by recovering only the needed data instead of an entire virtual machine with EMC Avamar—the industry’s only solution that leverages VMware’s Changed Block Tracking for both backup and recovery. REDUCE COST IN YOUR ENVIRONMENT 8 Automate storage optimization 9 Save on backup and DR costs with deduplication Optimize storage utilization and lower overall costs—regardless of application type or data age—by automatically moving data based upon workload with FAST VP. Reduce backup storage requirements for virtual environments by 10 to 30 times, and network usage by 99 percent, with EMC Avamar and Data Domain. In addition, Avamar integration with VADP and vCenter greatly reduces administrative costs.
