• Architecture for a modern, modular, unified data center

    VCE Vscale™ Architecture incorporates the market-leading portfolio of converged platforms and compute, storage and data protection extensions; a common network fabric; and an over-arching management tool.  This optimizes your data center for service delivery and business continuity, lets you add resources incrementally, minimizes operational effort and lowers IT cost.


      Converged Platforms

      The EMC portfolio of VCE blocks, racks, appliances modernizes and transforms data center environments to meet business’ evolving and dynamic demands, reduce costs and enable IT staff to shift their focus from maintaining infrastructure to delivering innovative business value.


      Network Fabric and Extensions

      The VCE™ Fabric incorporates Cisco LAN and SAN switching and optional software-defined networking technology between VCE converged platforms to create a flexible, scalable, and pooled resource-sharing environment.  VCE™ Fabric Extensions enable additional data center scale out through shared compute, storage and data protection resources.


      Management Software

      VCE VisionTM Intelligent Operations software enables standardized, more efficient, continuous processes for managing the health, firmware/software release levels and security of VCE converged platforms, network fabric and extensions altogether as a single pool of resources.

    • VCE Vblock® and VxBlock™ Systems converge best-in-class Cisco compute and networking, EMC storage and VMware virtualization.  These market-leading systems assure performance and continuity of the most demanding mixed workloads at scale, including mission-critical applications such as SAP, Oracle, Hybrid Cloud or VDI, while simplifying data center operations.

      VCE VxRack™ System 1000 is a hyper-converged rack-scale engineered system with tightly integrated software for automated provisioning, simplified management and robust reporting.  The system quickly deploys Infrastructure-as-a-Service and/or Private Cloud architectures for a variety of application workloads while improving overall agility and efficiency.

      VCE VxRail™ Appliance is built on VMware Hyper-Converged Software and is fully loaded with EMC mission-critical data services, including replication, backup and cloud tiering.  The appliance’s hyper-converged compute, storage, virtualization, and management deliver an all-in-one IT infrastructure transformation solution for a wide variety of applications and workloads.

    • VCE FabricTM, is a high-bandwidth, spine-and-leaf network based on Cisco’s Nexus and MDS switches that provides seamless workload mobility, disaster recovery and high availability across the VCE data center systems.

      VCE FabricTM Technology Extensions let you quickly and flexibly increase processing power or add storage capacity and data protection without typical technology risks.

      Extensions are based on the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS); EMC® XtremIO®, VMAX, VMAX3®, VNX2® and Isilon® storage; and EMC® Data Domain, Avamar®, RecoverPoint and VPLEX® data protection.

    • VCE VisionTM Intelligent Operations is multi-system management software that helps improve data center operational efficiency and assure infrastructure health, stability, optimization, and security. 

      Architectural-aware health and performance monitoring lets you manage systems as a unified, agile pool of resources.

      Compliance scans assess current firmware/software release levels and download pre-tested updates and patches, so you can fix bugs and enhance infrastructure performance and functionality with less effort and without the risk of outages.

      Compliance scans also assess hardware and virtualization settings and vulnerabilities, so you can maintain a security-hardened posture daily with less effort.
