Companies continue to further leverage VMware in order to take advantage of the efficiency, security and performance benefits delivered by full stack virtulization. At PTC, we are concentrating on implementing new optimization solutions from VMware to help our customers get even more from their virtual infrastructures.

Our Primary offerings in the VMware space are:

  • VMware vRealize Automation
  • Horizon View End User Desktop Infrastructure
  • Software Defined Data Center:
  • NSX
  • VSAN

We also bring years of experience in the performance tuning of critical business applications to assess and tune existing virtual infrastructures.

VCAC: VMware vRealize Automation 7

VMware vRealize Automation 7 is VMware’s unified cloud management software product that is capable of managing multiple hypervisors, physical infrastructure and public cloud services.

This allows for more efficient and more secure deployment of virtual and physical systems.

A primary challenge with on-demand, self-service provisioning is the integration of business processes to enforce governance, internal policies, and audit compliance. Using VMware vRealize Automation 7 API and extensibility toolkits such as Orchestrator and Power CLI, you can implement custom functionality.

Managing and monitoring costs in a virtualized and cloud-based infrastructure can be difficult. VMware® vRealize Suite™ is integrated with VMware vRealize Automation 7 to enable users to manage and monitor costs quickly and easily.

VMware vRealize Automation 7’s extensibility features will allow our customers to utilize any prepackaged, new, or existing vCenter Orchestrator workflow such as View Desktops and deliver it as a Self-Serviced, Entitled, Governed, and Lifecycle-managed service. This gets the customer to managed desktops on demand.

VMware Horizon View End User Computing:

VMware Horizon™ 6 (with View) delivers virtualized and remote desktops and applications through a single platform and supports end users with access to all of their Windows and online resources through one unified workspace.

Horizon 6. This is more than simply an extension of the Horizon View stack. With the release of Horizon 6, we start to see the integration between the somewhat disjointed elements of the previous Horizon Suite. We see a raft of changes:

  • Application presentation from different sources (ThinApp, web applications and Citrix XenApp).
  • An improved Horizon View, with enhanced performance and extra features.
  • A centralized Workspace interface for ease of use for the end user.
  • Local SSD storage

Virtual Infrastructure – The Software Defined Datacenter:

Many organizations have already virtualized or possess the means to virtualize their physical datacenter. When moving to private, public or hybrid Cloud Services you will want to implement a “Software Defined Datacenter”. The “Software Defined Datacenter” is an IT facility where the elements of the infrastructure – networking, storage, compute (CPU and Memory) and security – are virtualized and delivered as a service. The provisioning and operation of the entire infrastructure is entirely automated by software.

Potentially, an SDDC implementation could allow servers and other hardware to be shut down or run at lower power levels, which has implications for energy use. Some experts see SDDC as a more secure option to cloud. “SDDCs provide organizations with their own private cloud, allowing them to have far more control over hosted data,”  says Tim Chambers, chief technology officer and co-founder of Data City Exchange.
