EMC Expands VSPEX Offerings

Today EMC announced new offerings in its VSPEX program. VSPEX is EMC’s collection of pre-validated reference architectures, delivered by their channel partners. VSPEX provides a middle-ground. It offers greater speed for deployment than building and testing your own solution from scratch, and it provides more choice and flexibility than the converged infrastructure of the VCE Vblock.


Several existing VSPEX solutions have been rearchitected to use the new generation of VNX storage systems. These solutions include ones for:

  • Oracle 11g
  • MS SharePoint 2013
  • MS Exchange 2013
  • MS SQL Server 2012

New Solutions Available Now

EMC introduced some new VSPEX reference architectures that are available now. These include:

  • Private Cloud solutions for up to 1,000 VMs (using the new VNX)
  • End-User Computing solutions using VMware Horizon View 7.2
  • End-User Computing solutions using Citrix XenDesktop 7
  • Adding RecoverPoint data protection to VSPEX solutions

New Solutions Coming Soon

EMC also introduced two new VSPEX solutions that will be coming soon. They are:

  • Private Cloud solutions based on VMware vSphere 5.5 (will be available as soon as vSphere 5.5 goes GA)
  • End-User Computing solutions using Microsoft Hyper-V
