  • May 8, 2013

Vistara today announced that Vistara IT Operations Platform (ITOP), its SaaS-based IT management as a service solution, has been successfully tested and validated by Brocade for use with Brocade® VDX® switches. The validation further extends Vistara’s support for the EMC® VSPEX™ Proven Infrastructure.

“Vistara ITOP is pleased to expand the breadth and depth of its support for industry-leading components of EMC VSPEX Proven Infrastructure solutions, which now includes Brocade VDX switches,” says Varma Kunaparaju, Chief Technology Officer for Vistara. “The successful testing and validation of Vistara ITOP by Brocade ensures that our mutual customers will benefit from the simplicity and ease-of-use that comes from using our SaaS-based IT management as a service solution to provision and manage their entire distributed IT infrastructure.”

Vistara ITOP simplifies the adoption and management of cloud-based solutions and hybrid IT environments by federating the remote management of on-premise clouds, virtual private clouds, public clouds and IT tools into a single dashboard. Available as a SaaS solution, Vistara ITOP automatically updates and manages itself so IT professionals can focus on developing and delivering applications instead of managing them.

“The Vistara ITOP platform seamlessly interfaces with the automated configuration capabilities of Brocade VDX switches to further advance the value proposition we deliver with EMC VSPEX cloud and virtualization solutions,” said Jason Nolet, vice president of the Data Center Networking Group at Brocade. “The Vistara infrastructure management and orchestration capabilities exceeded our testing and validation requirements and enable our channel partners’ customers to better provision and manage network and storage resources.”

Earlier this year, Vistara announced support for EMC’s VSPEX Proven Infrastructure and VNX unified storage solutions “The successful testing and validation of the Vistara ITOP platform combined with Brocade’s VDX switches gives customers transforming IT greater ease in provisioning and managing their VNX storage infrastructure solutions,” said Parmeet Chaddha, vice president solutions, EMC.
