- Simple Out of the Box Set-Up: Project Enzo enabled hyper-converged appliances will offer plug-and-play simplicity so virtual desktops and applications can be up and running in less than an hour.
- Create and Scale Desktops at Cloud Speed: VMware Instant Clone technology integrated with VMware App Volumes™ and VMware User Environment Management technologies will allow IT administrators to create and scale desktops at cloud speed – allowing up to 2,000 virtual desktops to be created in under 20 minutes[i].
- Eliminate Maintenance Windows With Seamless Updates: Maintenance windows will be eliminated with seamless updates that can be applied instantly to Windows images and applications.
- Hybrid Cloud Flexibility: Desktop and applications can be moved back and forth from on-premises datacenters to the cloud, along with the flexibility of using the cloud as a primary use case for everyday productivity, or secondary use cases for desktop bursting or disaster recovery.
- Right-Sizing Infrastructure Needs: More efficient assessment combined with operational and capital cost savings will enable Project Enzo to transform the economics for enterprise desktops by avoiding over-provisioning of resources.Project Enzo features cloud-scale architecture. It consists of two main components – a Cloud-Control Plane and Smart Node technology that works with hyper-converged infrastructure solutions.The new VMware Enzo Cloud-Control Plane, a cloud-based management layer hosted on VMware vCloud Air, is designed to offer IT administrators a ‘single pane of glass’ to unify the administration of on-premises or off-premises virtual workspaces. This will help simplify the setup, delivery and monitoring of virtual desktops and applications. Customers will be able to use the control plane to configure desktops, apps and policies for groups of users, whether they are hosted on-premise or in the cloud.
The VMware Smart Node technology will reside on hyper-converged infrastructure and connects to the Cloud-Control Plane. The Smart Node Technology will be all managed and controlled from the Control Plane, and provide intelligent orchestration, delivery and management of workloads running on the hyper-converged infrastructure appliances and racks.
One key element of Smart Node technology will be just-in-time (JIT) provisioning of virtual desktops and applications. Using the configurations made in the cloud-control plane, Smart Node will leverage the built-in VMware AppVolumes, User Environment Management and the VMware Instant Cloning technologies to assemble personalized virtual desktop and application environments when an end-user logs-in, giving high flexibility to IT administrators in leveraging the infrastructure.
The Smart Node technology will come fully integrated into the next-generation EVO:RAIL™, and future EVO:RACK™ solutions from VMware. All of our EVO partners will have the ability to offer appliances and racks compatible with Project Enzo. In addition, Smart Node technology will be available to other partners building appliances using VMware vSphere® 6. As a result, our customers can work with their preferred providers of infrastructure hardware to connect with Project Enzo.
