Ericsson attends VMworld with its Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000

Ericsson is attending VMworld in Las Vegas from the 28th of August through the 1st of September and will be demonstrating Software-defined Infrastructure enabled by Ericsson Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000.

VMworld, hosted by VMware, is a major event for enabling the digital enterprise and software defined business, from mobile devices to the data center and the cloud. The attendees are a mix of IT technical professionals and business decision-makers from organizations of all sizes, representing a wide range of industries.

The massive growth in data and information technology services places increasing demands on the datacenter necessitating a re-architecture of the underlying infrastructure to allow companies and end-users to benefit from rapid service delivery. Across network, storage and compute there is a need for a new approach to deliver the scale and efficiency required to compete in a future where hyperscale and Software-defined Infrastructure are pre-requisites. All businesses are becoming software companies and all are becoming information enabled.

The virtualization of platform and compute resources on Ericsson Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000 enables customers to significantly reduce the time it takes to provision custom, multi-tier network topologies and enterprise-class services, cut operating and capital expenditures and increase deployment flexibility. In order to make it easier to introduce hyperscale capabilities for enterprises, Ericsson has integrated VMware vSphere® and vRealize® suite with Ericsson Command Center enabling visibility, agility and lean operations for the infrastructure and cloud platform layers. In addition to the hardware, event participants can experience a demonstration of the Ericsson Command Center and the integration with VMware vSphere® and vRealize® in booth 2101.

Ericsson will also deliver a presentation together with VMware on the topic Software-defined Infrastructure on Monday the 29th of August. The presentation will explain what Software-defined Infrastructure is and why it is needed. It takes place in the Solutions Exchange at 14:20.
