Applications are becoming the new face of business. Customers are expecting their favorite brands to create new, intelligent interactions and digital experiences on a daily basis. To stand out from the competition, enterprises must embrace development models that allow them to rapidly deliver applications, provide constant improvements, and bring new, differentiated levels of service to the market. Many enterprises are struggling to make the transition to this model because planning, designing and building a custom solution for cloud-native applications can be a complex project. That’s why EMC’s Federation created the fully engineered Native Hybrid Cloud (NHC) solution – to set your business ahead of the rest.
Native Hybrid Cloud is a turnkey developer solution designed to accelerate and simplify cloud native application development and deployment, speeding business innovation and time to market. Native Hybrid Cloud integrates and delivers a developer platform (PaaS) and infrastructure services (IaaS) in as little as two days, rapidly available for developing cloud-native
applications. It brings developers a rich set of services for deploying, scaling and managing the application life cycle while providing the needed visibility, control and financial insights to IT. NHC helps enterprises realize the promise of a DevOps model by connecting and simplifying how developers and IT operators build, deploy and operate applications through an “it just works” experience. EMC has invested thousands of engineering hours designing, integrating and testing Native Hybrid Cloud so organizations can quickly deliver cloud-native applications eliminating the cost, time, complexity, or uncertainty associated with developing an in-house solution.
Native Hybrid Cloud is a turnkey developer solution that reduces the weeks and months once needed to deploy an application to just days by integrating Pivotal Cloud Foundry’s cloud-native platform with a choice of on-prem and off-prem infrastructure-as-a-service options – all with the same consistent experience. In addition, all Native Hybrid Cloud components are sustained as one – including single contact support and upgrades across the entire solution. New features are tested and validated across all components, reducing the time and risk associated with upgrades.
Developers can push new code into production within minutes or scale applications with a single command with no effort wasted on building or configuring the environment. IT Operations gains full solution visibility and control through automated built-in features that monitor, manage and re-start system components. Native Hybrid Cloud maintains high availability for all running applications and continuously tracks application health with minimum operator intervention while on-going data protection provides back-up and recovery of applications and components in case of failure. Robust monitoring and reporting capabilities link application to infrastructure consumption allowing IT Operations to proactively improve application performance and capacity planning while showback and chargeback reporting deliver cost transparency.
Built on top of VCE VxRack System 1000 hyper-converged infrastructure, it delivers a robust, on-premises modern developer platform by integrating Pivotal Cloud Foundry with a choice of OpenStack and soon VMware Photon Platform. In addition, with VMware vSphere delivered on VxRack System 1000 with Flex Nodes, enterprises can extend what they already have in production, leveraging industry-leading capabilities and full compatibility with existing tools leveraging in-house expertise. Customers who are looking to run cloud native apps off-premises can choose a managed offering from Virtustream or push apps to Virtustream, vCloud Air, AWS or Azure as an endpoint for Native Hybrid Cloud sharing a common developer experience and management capability with on-premises Native Hybrid Cloud.

Now that we know developers can get the resources they need to push out applications on-demand, what does this mean in the long run?
Accelerated development and deployment lifecycles of cloud-native applications enable organizations to deliver differentiated value and business outcomes uninterruptedly. In the past, pushing out a new cloud-native application could have taken up to months where now it can be done in merely hours.
When code can seamlessly be pushed out as soon as it is written, IT can focus on delivering game-changing services that provide compelling customer experiences.
To achieve success in a rapidly changing digital era, enterprises must innovate faster, empower developers and accelerate IT operations. Native Hybrid Cloud is a turnkey developer platform designed to do just that! Don’t build what you can buy!
