vce.com THE WORLDS MOST ADVANCED CONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE
VBLOCK SPECIALIZED SYSTEM FOR EXTREME APPLICATIONS PRODUCT OVERVIEW EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE, RESPONSIVE- NESS, AND AVAILABILITYWHILE REDUCING YOUR COSTS Vblock Specialized System for Extreme Applications is designed to help you meet the requirements of your most demanding applications. The specialized Vblock System incorporates EMC XtremIO flash-based arrays to ensure the exceptional performance and responsiveness needed to support massively scalable solutions. You can also rely on Vblock Systems to deliver the highest availability and business continuitywhile enhancing the end-user experience and dramatically lowering your costs.
This makes the Vblock Specialized System for Extreme Applications ideal for solutions such as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). VDI offers users ready access to virtual desktops in your data center. Your administrative tasks are simplified, security and data protection are enhanced, and remote access is improved.
Extending the VCE Experience to Extreme Applications VCE Vblock Specialized System for Extreme Applications is the latest innovation from an expanding family built on the worlds most advanced converged infrastructure from VCE. The specialized system brings compute, network, solid-state flash storage, and virtualization technologies together into a tightly integrated systemenabling the infrastructure to be deployed, provisioned, operated, and supported as a single entity.
The simplicity of the VCE design allows your IT team to focus on business priorities, not infrastructure requirements. Vblock Systems can be up and running within days after arrival at your data centerproviding dynamic pools of resources that can be intelligently leveraged to respond to changing demands and opportunities. This makes you and your team more productive, while reducing IT costs.
Best-of-breed TechnologyVblock Systems integrate the Cisco Unified Computing System with Intel Xeon processors, storage from EMC, and virtualization technology from VMware into a single system.
Pre-Integration, Testing, and ValidationPre-engineering in VCE factory environments allows Vblock Systems to be put into production quickly, so you can respond to unpredictable business requirements.
Data Protection and Mobility for Mission-Critical ApplicationsBecause extreme applications such as VDI are essential to people productivity and business success, Vblock Systems offer available backup and recovery, automated replication, and workload mobilityall with the goal of delivering continuous availability.
Comprehensive ServicesVCE can help you develop a cloud computing roadmap, and deploy and integrate your systems quickly to ensure operational success. Post-deployment, VCE Support proactively identifies and resolves issues to simplify the support experience and further reduce risk.
Life-Cycle System AssuranceThe VCE life-cycle program takes the complexity out of handling upgrades, patches, and configuration requirements for extreme applications such as VDI.
Application OptimizationVCE continually tests a range of customer applications and vertical industry solutions to ensure that you receive the optimum performance from your most demanding enterprise applications.

Vblock Specialized System for Extreme Applications: Key Capabilities and Benefits Storage in a FlashThe Vblock Specialized System for Extreme Applications relies on the EMC XtremIO flash array to deliver performance in the millions of IOPS with sub-millisecond response times. This enables VDI users to boot up and log in quickly from anywhere and enjoy better access to the applications and information they need to get work done.
Intelligent load balancing with PowerPath/VEIt enables IT to assign all data paths to all devices and adjust path usage according to I/O loads. It does not simply distribute I/O evenly among all paths; instead, the technology uses statistics and algorithms to identify the optimal path for the workload. PowerPath/VE adjusts I/O path usage in response to the I/O loads emanating from each VM it can operate effectively in virtual environments that use dynamic tools such as VMware vMotion, Distributed Resource Scheduler, and High Availability configurations.
Extremely Cost EffectiveCount on significant power and cooling savings from the more space-efficient footprint and the consolidation that is possible with advanced inline deduplication capabilities. Full clone flexibility reduces your administrative overhead.
Right Sizing from the StartToo many organizations settle for optimized desktopswhich mean compromised performance. A Vblock System makes right sizing easyletting you scale to any number of desktops and burst to deliver significantly higher I/O per desktop. Choose from leading VDI solutions such as VMware Horizon View or Citrix XenDesktop. Roll out new user desktops nearly instantaneously. And enjoy simplified system administration that lets you make better use of your IT teams valuable time.
Continuous Availability and Trusted SecurityWhen 24x7 availability and security are required, you can trust VCE for the best in business continuity options, security, and compliance. Select Vblock Data Protections new EMC Avamar 7 for reliable backup and recovery. Or go with EMC RecoverPoint to easily recover data to specific points in time. For the most comprehensive solution, EMC VPLEX provides versatile workload mobility and continuous availability that will ensure your employees virtual desktops are accessible when needed. And for security, Vblock Systems are hardened based on vendor best practices and can be configured to meet compliance objectives for the most demanding and sensitive environment
