Dell EMC Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud

Contributor(s): Sarah Wilson

Dell EMC Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud is a reference architecture for a storage platform that integrates public and private cloud storage.

The architecture is composed of technologies from Dell EMC's Federation -- the group of Dell EMC's main storage businesses as well as VMware and Pivotal. Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud uses Dell EMC storage hardware and Dell EMC ViPR software to virtualize that storage. It also makes use of VMware's vCloud public cloud platform automation and management capabilities, and technology from CloudLink for encryption and security. Users can access, provision and manage the platform through a self-service portal.

Federation Enterprise Hybrid Clouds can be purchased in several different configurations. Choices include using a new Vblock, a new VSPEX , a repurposed Vblock, or it can be built around a customer's existing infrastructure. It is available in three sizes, with capacity for 500, 5,000 or 10,000 virtual machines. According to Dell EMC, the platform allows customers to set up a hybrid cloud within 28 days.

It was first announced at the EMC World conference in 2014, but the third and most recent version of Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud launched at the same conference one year later.

Dell EMC claims benefits such as self-service and automation, monitoring, simple deployment and enhanced security features.
