Driven by the need to realize greater efficiencies within their environment, enterprises are increasingly leveraging virtualized platforms to host their applications. However, the IT decision makers continue to be hesitant about utilizing the same infrastructure to host mission-critical applications because of concerns stemming from reliability and performance. These concerns can now finally be put to rest with the release of vStart 1000.
Available July 2012, the vStart 1000 is a pre-engineered virtualization platform that expedites the deployment of mission-critical applications while providing a rapid, low-risk path to Private Clouds. Leveraging proven, best-of-breed components – including Dell Compellent SAN storage, Dell Force10 10Gb networking and Dell’s 12th generation PowerEdge blade servers – the vStart 1000 delivers top-notch performance, and, with built in redundancies, also addresses single point of failure concerns. Included cloud management software, VIS Creator, allows customers to drive IT efficiencies through advanced private cloud capabilities including Infrastructure as a Service, Chargeback/Showback, VM sprawl control, etc.
The latest and the most scaled offering within Dell’s award-winning vStart solution line, vStart 1000 supports the leading virtualization platforms – Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere – and includes initial deployment services and IT support services from Dell. As with all vStarts, vStart 1000 delivers on the three core value tenets – it provides rapid time-to-value, drives efficiency and lowers risk, and provides future-proof scalability to accommodate changing and growing needs.
