Datalink Will Showcase Cloud Complete Service Extension to Support Hybrid Cloud Initiatives at VMworld


Datalink (Nasdaq: DTLK), a leading provider of data center infrastructure and services, today announced the addition of hybrid cloud services to its Cloud Complete fast-track cloud building solution with integrated solutions from VMware. Datalink is demonstrating the combined solution this week at Booth 333 at the VMware VMworld US 2015 conference in San Francisco.

Datalink Cloud Complete shortens the transition to IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) by bundling converged infrastructure, service automation and orchestration, a services catalog and multiple support services into a single package culminating in the rollout of self-service IT. This one-stop approach eliminates lengthy planning processes and a la carte purchases that cause months-long delays in meeting end users’ demand for departmental and line-of-business cloud services.

Cloud Complete includes secure bidirectional workload mobility across heterogeneous private and public clouds, a choice of public cloud providers, centralized visibility across private and public cloud environments, and common network and security policies across disparate cloud applications.

“This solves a key pain point in cloud projects today: the difficulty of moving data back and forth between public and private clouds that require unified management, security as well as support for multiple cloud providers,” said Shawn O’Grady, Datalink Chief Operating Officer. “Our Cloud Complete offering enables us to help customers deploy secure hybrid clouds quickly, reliably, and with the governance controls and ease-of-management abilities that are critical to any enterprise.”

Datalink is a VMware National Solution Provider recognized for expertise in management and cloud solutions. The company also recently earned the Cisco Master Cloud Builder Specialization, a designation reserved for partners with the highest level of cloud builder expertise. That achievement reflects Datalink’s ability to build and deploy cloud-ready integrated infrastructures across storage, virtualization, cloud management and virtual desktops.

Datalink’s cloud building services – spanning consulting, design, deployment, management and support of private and public clouds – are part of a portfolio of advanced services designed to assist customers in handling complex data center transformation, relocation, migration and disaster recovery projects.
