A few weeks ago at Pivotal’s SpringOne Platform event I met Drew Dimmick of EMC. Drew heads up product management for EMC’s Native Hybrid Cloud offering. Native Hybrid Cloud, or “NHC” is a complete shrink-wrapped Pivotal Cloud Foundry developer platform that can be set up in as little as two days.
I grabbed some time with Drew and had him take me through the offering at a high level.
Here is what Drew had to say:
Some of the ground Drew covers
- How NHC cut set-up time from weeks to days and provides a single-vendor solution
- Today’s stack is composed of: VxRack with Neutrino nodes + Pivotal Cloud Foundry with metering, monitoring billing etc, all siting on top of OpenStack
- There are couple of other NHC flavors wating in the wings:
- Pivotal Cloud Foundry + VMware’s VxRail solution sitting on top of vSphere (today half of all Pivotal Cloud Foundry implementations sit on top of vSphere)
- Further out, a version featuring VMware’s Photon platform which customers could choose in place of OpenStack
- Native Hybrid Cloud datasheet
- EMC doubles down on digital transformation and hybrid cloud with new technologies – Tech Republic
