The VMware Edge Compute Stack (ECS) helps businesses and government organizations quickly take advantage of all of the benefits of near and far edge computing. The Stack makes it possible build, run, manage, connect and protect applications on containers or virtual machines consistently across the edge, data center and cloud environments.
Tactical VMware is a new family of platforms designed and built to make it possible to deploy ECS in a wide range of non-traditional data center environments at the edge, including in the air, at sea or on the ground in stationary, remote or highly mobile locations. Whether your application requires a larger system with maximum compute power, or you need a more compact system for more portable or rugged applications, the Tactical VMware family of products delivers platforms designed to help your organization maximize your investments in ECS and take advantage of all of the benefits that edge computing has to offer.
Ideal for organizations that require a platform that adds significant PCIe capabilities – and the diversity, flexibility and innovation of the PCIe ecosystem – to their complex, compute and storage intensive workloads, including cyber security, virtual modeling and virtual reality, manufacturing, oil and gas, financial modeling and trading, education, academic research and transportation.
Tactical VMware was developed and engineered through an exclusive partnership with Dell Technologies and the Office of the CTO at VMware and is based on Dell EMC PowerEdge technology. The first Tactical VMware is configured and optimized to specifically support the VMware Edge Compute Stack (ECS) and features rugged MIL-SPEC transit cases integrated by Tracewell Systems to make it possible to deploy ECS in virtually any rugged environment for any organization that needs to deliver enterprise-class compute power to support their edge applications.
Tactical VMware can be ordered through Dell Technologies and is eligible for Dell warranty, service, support and secure supply chain. Additional Tactical VMware platforms are currently in development and offer the potential to deliver more innovation for ECS, including more portable and tactical systems and platforms that are Airline Transportation Association (ATA) compliant.
