As opposed to disparate vendor components, the Vblock infrastructure integrates the networking, computing, storage and virtualization layers at the core. This ensures that your infrastructure can seamlessly and reliably deliver application performance and business agility.

The Vblock platform comprises:
• Virtualization by VMware
• Networking by Cisco Nexus® switches
• Computing by Cisco Unified Computing System™ (UCS)
• Management by EMC Ionix™ Unified Infrastructure Manager
• Single point-of-point contact, Delivery & Support VCE
• Security Information Event Management by RSA enVision® (optional)
• Governance, Risk and Compliance by RSA eGRC ® (optional)
