EMC Corporation and Cisco have jointly launched twin Cloud Experience Centers in Bengaluru. This is a first-of-its-kind collaboration with the twin facilities located at the EMC Center of Excellence, and the Cisco Globalization Center East, by creating a lab that provides Indian customers with an opportunity to experience the benefits of cloud-based IT infrastructure.

The two companies will work together to engineer solutions for the Indian market. These would include reference architectures which can be tested for reliability, security and scale, as well as cross training for engineers and partners on their respective technologies and solutions.

EMC and Cisco have jointly seen significant success in the enterprise market for cloud infrastructure in India, with key wins at KPIT Cummins and EXL, among others.

The twin centers will help accelerate customers’ transition to cloud-based infrastructure by enabling proof-of-concepts. Manoj Chugh, President. EMC India and SAARC, said, “While cloud computing is a huge buzzword in technology, adoption is taking its time as CIOs are seeking the reassurance that cloud computing infrastructures are reliable, scalable, and secure. The labs are live test bed for customers to come in and validate their business cases in a live environment.”

“We envision the Cloud Experience Centers will offer comprehensive cloud and collaboration solutions to help customers address their business challenges and increase their competitiveness,” said Faiyaz Shahpurwala, Senior Vice President, Cisco Services.

The centers are built on cloud based services by using the vBlock infrastructure package, Cisco’s virtualization, collaboration and borderless architectures, Virtualisation Experience Infrastructure (VXI), and EMC’s VPLEX. –a virtual storage technology that federates data located on multiple storage systems, by allowing the storage resources to be pooled together and accessed anywhere.

The lab showcases how a virtualized datacenter provides elastic scaling for compute infrastructure of an organization – through the deployment of intelligent building automation systems on Cisco’s Service Delivery Platform (SDP) for rapid and repeatable deployments as the physical foot print of the organization expands.
