Virtustream Forges New Connections for Customers in Hybrid Environments with VMware NSX and vRealize Suite Integrations

Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud services and software provider and an EMC Federation Company, today announced plans to integrate the VMware NSX network virtualization platform into the Virtustream Enterprise Cloud. Virtustream, a member of the vCloud Air Network, will also work with VMware to establish Virtustream’s Enterprise Cloud as an endpoint for VMware vRealize Suite, for customers within a software-defined data center architecture, or as part of EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud. 

These initiatives will further integrate solutions from across EMC, Virtustream and VMware to help customers better leverage hybrid cloud as part of their digital transformation initiatives by adding connections from on-premises infrastructure to Virtustream’s Enterprise Cloud, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution designed for mission-critical applications.

“By increasing our customers’ ability to connect between end-users, applications and systems—both in the cloud and on premises—we better equip them for their total digital transformation,” said Kevin Reid, president and chief technology officer, Virtustream. “These new integrations will help our customers make the most of their existing investments in VMware solutions, and provide the market with the most powerful EMC solution set to date. As competitive cycles in business continue to shrink, it is important to arm our customers with a better, broader and more efficient toolset with which to win.”

Later this year, customers will be able to extend their VMware NSX environments seamlessly into Virtustream’s Enterprise Cloud. VMware NSX provides a complete set of logical networking elements and services including logical switching, routing, firewalling, load balancing, VPN, QoS, and monitoring. Virtual networks are programmatically provisioned and managed independent of the underlying hardware.

Additionally, customers leveraging VMware vRealize Suite to manage hybrid clouds will be able to deploy into Virtustream’s Enterprise Cloud as a public cloud endpoint, providing easy access to Virtustream’s robust, high-performance enterprise-class IaaS for their mission-critical applications, while maintaining a single control panel for infrastructure management.

“Our common goal is to make hybrid, multi-cloud IT environments a true reality for our customers,” said Ajay Patel, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Provider Software, VMware. “These new integrations will create an easy on-ramp for enterprises to better manage and deploy their business-critical applications and systems across their entire IT infrastructure.”
