BANGALORE: Technology giant VMWare has launched a new software suite of data centre solutions to help its customers slash capital expenditure by nearly 50 percent and improve IT productivity as well.

Announced at the VMworld 2014 here, the firm said the new virtualisation, cloud management and integrated solutions support the dynamic needs of businesses.

"With a software-defined data centre, organisations can reduce capital expense costs by up to 31 per cent with industry standard hardware and 49 per cent using commercial off-the-shelf hardware and increase staff productivity by 100 per cent or more in environments employing IT-as-a-service," VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger said.

He added that empowered by software-defined technologies, businesses are now able to move with dramatic speed.

"VMware continues to innovate making the software-defined data centre more open, secure and agile," he said. VMware's Integrated OpenStack is expected to be available globally in the first half of next year. Besides, VMware has partnered Google, Docker and Pivotal to help simplify enterprise adoption of container-Based applications on a common platform in private, public and hybrid clouds. "The collaboration will enable enterprises to leverage their existing VMware infrastructure as a unified, scalable and secure platform for running and managing enterprise applications whether in a container or a virtual machine," he said.

By offering a common platform, developers will gain the speed and agility they need while providing IT teams with the control they require.

VMware has also introduced a solution 'VMware EVO: RAIL' to help its customers streamline deployment and scale-out of software-defined IT infrastructure. "IT organisations today are being challenged to provide services faster than ever while reducing the complexity and costs of their environments," VMware executive vice president (software-defined data centre division) Raghu Raghuram said. "VMware EVO: RAIL will dramatically simplify the delivery of software-defined infrastructure services while lowering operating expenses," he added. The solution will accelerate customer time to value by enabling them to produce virtual machines within minutes of powering on the appliance. The U.S.-based technology giant had reported $5.21 billion in revenues for full-year 2013, representing year-on-year growth of 13 percent. It has more than 500,000 customers and 75,000 partners.
