In June 2013, I was introducing the Dell PowerEdge VRTX for Hybrid Cloud with System Center 2012 SP1 Suite with a video and a Hyper-V 2012 Reference Architecture guide.
You can find that blogpost here
Now the Dell PowerEdge VRTX All-In-The-Box Solution works great together with Microsoft Cloud :
4ward is pleased to offer the first appliance for the Cloud on the market, specifically designed for both Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), and for organizations with offices, departments or branch offices. A solution that once the first setup is completed is fully supported by Dell, 24×7, through their ProSupport services, for the Windows components and by Microsoft for the System Center part, it is based on an unique infrastructure in the industry:
Dell PowerEdge VRTX, a converged system that can enable any organization to implement a Data Center with a solution in-a-box, even within an office.
Thanks to Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft System Center 2012 R2, and the intellectual property of 4ward customers can order and receive a private Cloud solution that will be deployed at the first boot of the system with the help of a wizard. Just as easily could be extended to a public Cloud, creating a hybrid solution. Through the Cloud in-a-box appliance, workloads and services will get geographical high availability, scale up and scale down features, always letting the characteristics of the IT infrastructure perfectly adhere
business needs, even if for intense and short periods of time.
All this at the cost of a virtualization infrastructure.
