They will collaborate across other areas of the BMC Business Service Management platform
Business service management firm BMC Software and Virtual Computing Environment (VCE), a company formed by Cisco and EMC, have partnered to address the demand for converged infrastructures in cloud computing projects.
Under the partnership, BMC and VCE will enhance the interoperability and integration of their products and collaborate to promote and offer their offerings in the market.
The VCE Vblock Infrastructure Platform is integrated with BMC’s business-centric cloud management offerings to help joint customers for BMC and VCE automate their management of comprehensive cloud infrastructures.
In addition, BMC and VCE will collaborate across other areas of the BMC Business Service Management platform.
VCE president Frank Hauck said Vblock platforms bring together best-of-breed technology from Cisco, EMC and VMware to enable rapid deployment of cloud applications using a converged infrastructure.
"By working closely with BMC, VCE is further simplifying and automating management processes for the benefit of our mutual customers. This will enable them to focus more of their attention and resources on using the cloud to deliver better IT services, faster and at lower costs than traditional data center models," said Hauck.
BMC Enterprise Service Management president Paul Avenant said the ability of BMC’s cloud management offerings to orchestrate the full-stack provisioning of services and provide consistency through proactive performance and management functionality are unmatched within the marketplace.
"This industry-leading combination ultimately provides our joint customers with flexible, reliable, cost optimised, heterogeneous cloud solutions that work for their businesses," said Avenant.
