Keeping the Good News Coming: EMC VSPEX Expands Support for Exchange 2013 and SharePoint 2013

Lately  it seems like we’re doing something new with VSPEX every day.  And if it isn’t us, it’s our VSPEX-enabled partners.

Today is no different — We’re excited to announce that VSPEX solutions for Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SharePoint will be updated to include Exchange 2013 and SharePoint 2013 in early July.

If you aren’t familiar with VSPEX, here’s a refresher:  It’s complete cloud infrastructure – EMC’s industry-leading storage and backup technology integrated with your choice of virtualization, server and networking technology — fully tested and validated by EMC as cloud infrastructure to support your mission-critical applications.

The new VSPEX solutions for Exchange and SharePoint 2013 dramatically reduce the complexity that comes with planning, sizing and deploying environments for these mission critical applications.  Now you can quickly and easily deploy complete infrastructure supporting a virtualized Microsoft Exchange 2013 instance scaling between 100 and 10,000 mailboxes.  The simple, efficient and flexible VSPEX for SharePoint 2013 covers popular use cases such as Document Repository (file shares replacement) and Enterprise Content Management and can scale from 100 users up to 10,000 users.

But the good news doesn’t stop there: after working with Metalogix to improve performance and scalability in the VSPEX for virtualized SharePoint solution by externalizing SharePoint BLOB data via Metalogix StoragePoint, we recently completed testing in the VSPEX Labs with Kroll Ontrack PowerControls. for Microsoft SharePoint environments offers a new option to customers that delivers granular recovery component within VSPEX for virtualized SharePoint solutions.

We’ve been working very hard to make VSPEX as effective a cloud infrastructure for supporting Microsoft-based cloud environments as possible.  Grant Dawson, Information Technology Manager for T2 Systems, a VSPEX customer, says that our hard work is paying off: “With VSPEX, we can dynamically allocate resources to virtualized mission critical applications in Windows Server 2012. The way VSPEX is designed means that we have full redundancy and data is always available.”

Keep an eye on our VSPEX space on EMC Community Network in early July — we’ll be posting these new solutions then. To learn even more about these new offerings and partnerships, read our detail blog.
