Easily provide a private cloud to a customer with VCE Vblock Systems and Cognizant

VCE is a joint venture between Cisco and the EMC Corporation with additional investments from VMware and Intel Corporation. VCE was created by combining a technical partnership with Acadia and the Virtual Computing Environment coalition into a single entity in January 2011.

VCE manufactures a converged infrastructure called Vblock Systems that combines VMware vSphere running on Cisco Unified Computing System connected with Cisco Nexus switches. The solution is attached to EMC Corp. storage.

VCE guarantees that all vendor components of the system will work as a single, unified model. As such, customers spend less time testing and fixing bugs. VCE also provides hardware support and ongoing system support, so customers call VCE for support versus each independent vendor.

Reduce cost and time of a private cloud deployment

Working with Cognizant

Through our alliance partnership, Cognizant takes advantage of a converged architecture that makes it easy to provide a private cloud to a customer. Also, customers can reduce the cost of implementation because VCE does the testing and benchmarking as the integrated system is built.

The Cognizant and VCE partnership provides added value for customers who want to optimize internal IT resources, but do not want to build deep expertise in converged architecture management. Also, customers who need to maintain data internally, but want to leverage a dynamic computer environment, will benefit from the combination of Cognizant’s IT architecture management expertise and VCE’s scalable deployment approach.
