EMC has announced an extension of capabilities for VMware Infrastructure environments with tested storage and server systems for virtualised applications.
EMC has integrated its applications with VMware to support best practices for Microsoft SQL Server 2005, Microsoft Exchange 2007, Oracle 10g and 11g, and SAP.
As part of the extended support, EMC has defined optimised application and storage system configurations, assured interoperability and fully documented complete deployment best practices for these platforms in advanced VMware infrastructures.
EMC said these applications have been tested and documented at broad workloads in VMware Infrastructure 3.5 environments to enable deployments that meet customer expectations for application-level performance, backup and recovery, remote replication, high availability and manageability.
As a result, said EMC, joint EMC and VMware customers can more rapidly achieve the cost-reduction and flexibility of VMware environments in less time and with less effort.
