  • Agenda – no notes necessary
  • The VCE charter speaks to the high level mission of VCE.No changes with the launch of a Vblock 300
  • Integrated Sales, Services and Support - Vblock Unified Customer EngagementThe Vblock Unified Customer Engagement is an integrated portfolio of sales, service and support to help customers de-risk the journey to private cloud, understand business benefits and deploy Vblock-based infrastructure. VCE supports multiple go to market routes for customers of the Vblock Infrastructure Platforms. These routes include an extensive ecosystem of channel partners, system integrators as well as direct sales from Cisco, EMC and VMware. VCE, along with Cisco, EMC and VMware and partners have developed a set of VCE Services to enable private cloud. These services can help organizations transform their current IT infrastructure to accelerate strategic business impact.  Using the Vblock Infrastructure Package architecture, VCE Services will help define an organization’s cloud vision, a cloud strategy that aligns with business needs, an architecture and high-level design, with a plan to deploy the Vblock solution.VCE has developed a virtual support center with combined expertise for fast technical assistance and response. Customers can access this support through a single contact point directly connecting them with a virtual team of VCE solution technical experts.
  • Vblock Infrastructure Platforms enable you to start, for example, with a single Vblock 1, then scale up with additional capacity or power, or scale out with additional Vblock platforms. In this example, Vblock 2 has been deployed for mission critical applications, Vblock 1 for shared services – Email, File and Print, etc and a couple of Vblock platforms for management as well as development sandbox environments.Each Vblock is connected to aggregation layer switches that enable IP connectivity to application users and end points, as well as provide application services such as server-load balancing and firewall services for the applications that are hosted on the Vblock platforms. The aggregation layer and associated services enable VMs to be VMotioned within the Vblock while maintaining user sessions and policy control. Additionally, a storage aggregation layer enables storage resources to be scaled to support either pooled storage, or isolated storage using VSANs, and also enables advanced functionality such as CDP/SANTap, and storage media encryption, as well as replication between data centers over fibre optic or FCIP.500 VMsEnterprises that are migrating workloads to a virtualized model within a brown field environmentEnterprises that are building out new virtualized application environments – VDI1500 VMsGreen field build-outs for enterprise customers that want to migrate rapidly to virtualizationEnterprise brown field transformation3000 VMsService Providers offering managed services, cloud services, SaaS etc. (multiple blocks of 3000 VMs typical)Enterprise green Field build-outs (multiple blocks of 3000 VMs typical)
  • Based on VCE’s experience in building Vblocks and talking to customers, we estimate that customers will save approximately 60 to 90 days by buying a Vblock versus building it themselves. This expands on the previous slide. Is a three month time saving, one number to call for support in a pre-built, pre-tested and optimized platform valuable to your customer? While the enterprise may be capable of doing the integration, wouldn’t the enterprise rather optimize data and applications?
  • VCE is announcing the following-Vblock 2 is renamed Vblock 700 and the specifications remain the same. Vblock 300 is the new Vblocks with storage based on the EMC VNX
  • The Vblock platform currently consists of Vblock 0, Vblock 1, Vblock 1u, Vblock 2. With the launch of Vblock 300, we have also renamed Vblock 2 to Vblock 700. This new naming convention will give us the opportunity to add additional specificity, by having model numbers. VCE will focus on Promoting Vblock 300 and Vblock 700. While Vblock 0, Vblock 1, and Vblock 1u are still available they will not be actively marketed.
