Organizations are increasingly looking to do more with less.  One way to achieve this objective is by transforming to a fully virtualized cloud infrastructure to deliver IT as a service to increase performance, agility and flexibility.   Microsoft Cloud based solutions provide a unique opportunity for joint EMC and Microsoft customers to leverage existing infrastructure in support of both on prem, and public cloud offerings.  EMC continues to develop architectures specific to deploying Microsoft applications in a rapid, low-cost model with “as a Service” capabilities.  These architectures leverage the convergence of virtualization, networking and EMC Storage platforms along with infrastructure that provides management, monitoring and reporting to cloud administrators.

EMC recently published two Cloud Reference Architectures based on this joint technology offering.  This week on EMC The Source, I spent some time with Paul Galjan (@PaulGaljan), functional lead for EMC Microsoft Technologies.  Both the Microsoft Cloud Reference Architecture:  Microsoft applications and Microsoft Cloud Reference Architecture: Foundation provide a blue print for deploying an EMC/Microsoft Cloud based application and infrastructure stack.

The Federation End User Computing Solution (Federation EUC) makes it easier to deploy virtual desktops by going beyond just desktops. The Solution provides everything you need for secure, anytime, anywhere access to desktops and applications. This includes not just the VDI, but also the support desk software, orchestration and automation tools, security, installation services, and one-call support. Providing IT with simpler deployment, management and support while providing end users with self-provisioning desktops along with the ability to work efficiently from any end point from anywhere at any time. The Federation EUC Solution provides a foundation for simplifying your End User Compute Infrastructure.

The Federation End-User Computing (EUC) solution continues to evolve. I sat down with Jay Chitnis, Director of EMCs End User and Mobility Solutions before his Keynote presentation at the New England EUC Summit to the latest developments on the Federation EUC Solution.
