Enterprises and Service Providers
HOUSTON & RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
BMC Software (NASDAQ: BMC),
the leader in Business
Service Management, and VCE today announced a strategic alliance
that will combine the industry-leading solutions of both companies to
address the growing market demand for best-in-class converged
infrastructures in cloud computing projects.
As IT departments adopt cloud at an ever-accelerating pace, the
integration of the VCE
Vblock™ Infrastructure Platform and BMC's business-centric
cloud management solutions will help joint customers for BMC and VCE
automate their management of comprehensive cloud infrastructures. As a
part of the alliance, BMC and VCE will enhance the interoperability and

organizations such as Harris Corp., Telstra and QTS.
"Vblock platforms bring together best-of-breed technology from Cisco,
EMC and VMware to enable rapid deployment of cloud applications using a
converged infrastructure," said Frank Hauck, president of VCE. "By
working closely with BMC, VCE is further simplifying and automating
management processes for the benefit of our mutual customers. This will
enable them to focus more of their attention and resources on using the
cloud to deliver better IT services, faster and at lower costs than
traditional data center models."
In addition to integrating the orchestration capabilities of BMC's Cloud
Lifecycle Management solution, BMC and VCE will collaborate across other
areas of the BMC Business Service Management platform including, for
example, BMC's ProactiveNet Performance Management Suite, which combines
planning, predictive analytics and preventative automation for improved
management of complex Vblock platform infrastructures.
"The ability of BMC's cloud management solutions to orchestrate the
full-stack provisioning of services and provide superior consistency
through proactive performance and management functionality are unmatched
within the marketplace," said Paul Avenant, president of Enterprise
Service Management (ESM) at BMC. "This industry-leading combination
ultimately provides our joint customers with flexible, reliable, cost
optimized, heterogeneous cloud solutions that work for their businesses."
"Here at BlueWater, we are helping our customers with their critical
cloud initiatives using BMC's Cloud Lifecycle Management solution and
the VCE Vblock platform," said Vinu Thomas, director —Core,
DC/Virtualization and Cloud Strategy at BlueWater. "This powerful
solution combines industry-leading technologies in converged
infrastructure and cloud lifecycle management with our integration
services. BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management and VCE Vblock platforms are
key components of our go-to-market cloud strategy, and we are excited
about the power this alliance will bring to the market."
