For Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, Exchange Server 2010 and Windows 7
EMC has expanded product, engineering support and consulting services for Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, Exchange Server 2010 and Windows 7.
The company said that it is expanding its engineering focus on Windows Server 2008 R2 to enable customers to simplify the deployment and management of virtualised Microsoft environments.
EMC said that it will extend its current Microsoft Research & Development Center presence with incremental engineering resources that focus on driving value, adding integration between EMC storage technologies and Microsoft virtualisation capabilities.
The company claims that by deploying its information infrastructure technologies that have been tested and validated to comply with Microsoft technical requirements, customers make their IT organisation strategic by gaining more control over IT risk and increasing efficiency with enhanced compatibility, reliability, and security.
EMC Symmetrix V-Max systems, EMC Symmetrix DMX systems, EMC CLARiiON networked storage systems and EMC Celerra unified storage system support Windows Server 2008 R2, the company said.
According to EMC, its SourceOne family will provide Exchange 2010 customers with a information governance offering for integrated archiving, litigation readiness and eDiscovery. EMC SourceOne manages retention periods for compliance purposes and applies single instancing at the time of archiving to improve IT efficiency.
Eric Jewett, director of windows server and tools services division at Microsoft, said: Microsoft’s newest technologies expand our virtualisation strategy and portfolio across desktops and datacenters and provides the cost savings and holistic management that customers require for more efficient and agile IT operations.
