VMware Cloud Foundation on Dell EMC VxRail, the Dell Technologies Cloud Platform (DTCP), can be a great choice for healthcare infrastructure. DTCP builds on native VxRail and VMware Cloud Foundation capabilities, with additional integration features jointly engineered by Dell Technologies and VMware. The platform helps simplify, streamline, and automate the operations of an organization’s entire software-defined data center (SDDC) before and on Day 0, and all the way through Day 2 operations.
As many healthcare applications such as EMR continue to move to the cloud, a proven platform like VMware Cloud Foundation on Dell EMC VxRail can assist in simplifying modern transformation. The VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail platform delivers a simple and direct path to the hybrid cloud and Kubernetes at cloud scale. Administrators get both the HCI infrastructure and cloud platform software stack in one complete and automated life cycle, turnkey experience.
The platform includes the following components, all of which can be delivered with an HIT-centric focus:
Additional benefits include the capability of deploying common end-user computing services (with VMware Horizon and VMware App Volumes) and container-based cloud-native platform services (with vSphere 7 with Tanzu and Tanzu Kubernetes Grid), in both private or public environments, making the VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail platform the operational hub for an organization’s hybrid cloud. To accelerate the move to containers and a hybrid cloud operating model, Dell Technologies offers a unique integration between VMware Cloud Foundation and the VxRail system that supports simultaneous virtual machine and container-based workloads on PowerEdge servers and Dell EMC storage across multiple cloud environments.
The VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail platform makes operating the data center fundamentally simpler. It brings the ease and automation of the public cloud in-house by deploying a standardized and validated flexible networking architecture with integrated life cycle automation for the entire cloud infrastructure stack, including hardware. This level of deep integration with VMware Cloud Foundation provides administrators with an effective turnkey hybrid cloud experience.
An essential aspect of the offering is a standardized architecture for how these SDDC components are deployed together with VMware Cloud Foundation. This integrated cloud software platform is based on VMware Validated Designs. Having a standardized design incorporated as part of the platform guarantees that the components have been certified with each other and are backed by Dell Technologies. HIT teams can then be assured that they have an automated and validated path forward to get from one continuously validated state to the next across the end-to-end stack.
