Cloud Native adoption is driven by a quest for continuous business innovation leveraging cloud-based services. Hallmarks of continuous innovation include application developers who are fully focused on business objectives rather than IT infrastructure, and IT operations staff who spend the bulk of their time on business priorities rather than keeping the lights on.
VxRack System with Neutrino, available stand alone or as part of EMC Native Hybrid Cloud (NHC), is a purpose built system specifically engineered to support the development and operation of cloud native apps running on platforms like OpenStack (available today) and VMware Photon (in the near future). VxRack Neutrino addresses “Do It Yourself” challenges with OpenStack initiatives such as delayed deployments, complexity of operation, and difficulty of achieving stability as highlighted in a recent OpenStack User Survey. With VxRack Neutrino, an OpenStack environment can be provisioned in a matter of minutes, with significantly simplified ongoing operations and upgrades.
NHC and VxRack Neutrino empower developers to rapidly build and iterate code in a fully turnkey Pivotal Cloud Foundry developer platform with a full complement of application services, while IT Operations retains full visibility and control of the environment.
VxRack Neutrino’s early-adopters include the following examples:
- An IT service giant in India deployed a NHC engineered solution built on VxRack Neutrino to provide its developers with a way to rapidly provision infrastructure on demand so as to respond to customer requests more quickly, avoiding the complexity associated with do-it-yourself OpenStack efforts.
- A major North American airline opted for NHC built on VxRack Neutrino to create an advanced DevOps environment that proved faster and vastly superior to alternative vendor implementations.
- An American retail giant plans to use VxRack Neutrino to move parts of its primary website back on-premises OpenStack based IaaS to reduce their costs for public-cloud and co-location.
With NHC and VxRack Neutrino, dedicated cloud native platforms from EMC are enterprise ready, easy to install, and future proofed. As stated by IDC analyst Ashish Nadkarni, “EMC has done all the work to make OpenStack operate very much like any other enterprise-ready infrastructure solution”.
