Software Accelerated Data Center
The Technology Integration Group Solution Center is the first customer ready showcase of a “Software Accelerated Data CenterTM” in Canada. Going beyond “Software Defined”, the Solution Center leverages best of breed technology from leading software and infrastructure vendors, expertly integrated to deliver value in minutes instead of months. The Solution Center is the ultimate proof of concept, allowing CIOs to experience first-hand how they deliver accelerated innovation, & shrink CAPEX and OPEX, while maintaining security, compliance and control.
- Accelerate Agility
The SADC allows you to deliver infrastructure in minutes instead of months. With Dell Hyper-Converged Infrastructure you can setup and scale compute and storage capacity in minutes, all while achieving up to 60% savings in CAPEX. With VMware NSX network virtualization you provision VMs faster, and place them where they are best suited in the data center. With network and virtualization monitoring from Riverbed and Veeam, you can monitor and react in real time to network and application bottlenecks and plan for future capacity squeezes.
- Accelerate Time to Value
Manual processes, compliance requirements, and approvals all slow down IT’s ability to deliver resources. With VMware’s vRealize suite you can automate operations through self-service catalogues that ensure workloads and resources are delivered securely and correctly instantaneously. vRealize can also be used to report back to businesses how much resources cost, ensuring that systems aren’t unnecessarily overprovisioned.
- Accelerate Control
Ensuring that resources are accessed securely and protected gets increasingly complex in virtual and cloud based data centers. The SADC improves control, first by ensuring that every new resource delivered complies to security requirements through vRealize. Each VM can be configured with micro-segmentation and firewalls through NSX. And Trend Micro provides comprehensive cloud based security scanning, encryption, intrusion detection, and compliance tools. Veeam ensures that VM’s can be recovered in as little as 2 minutes, and WAN acceleration can enable cloud based DR solutions
