KPMG installs Cisco/EMC/VMware Vblock cloud platform

By

KPMG Australia has converted its data centre to a private cloud with a Vblock infrastructure platform that includes  hardware and software from Cisco, EMC and VMware.

According to Cisco, "KPMG will internally deploy the solution so that clients can benefit from its practical experience and 'lessons learned' information, particularly in new technology areas such as cloud."
"The results KPMG aims to achieve by deploying its advisory services on Vblock include delivering multiple cloud-based digital services and generating multiple new revenue streams on a single optimised platform that will allow the organisation to lower its operational costs and carbon footprint."

Vblock, launched in November 2009, is billed as "the industry's first completely integrated information technology offering that combines best-in-class virtualisation, networking, computing, storage, security and management technologies with the unrivalled industry expertise of Cisco, EMC and VMware."

The KPMG installation combines the Cisco Unified Computing System with two EMC Unified Storage NS-960s with automated storage tiering and VMware vSphere, all deployed by Dimension Data). According to Cisco, it enables KPMG to compress the time needed to provision and deploy new services from months to minutes.
