The VCE Vblock

A Converged Infrastructure Solution from One of the Industry’s Largest Storage Vendors


In the technology world, there are few brands more recognizable than EMC. A joint venture between EMC, VMware and Cisco—called VCE—offers one of the most powerful converged infrastructure solutions on the market. The VCE Vblock combines EMC storage, the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), and Cisco Nexus switching to create a complete “Data Center in a Box” solution.

The Mindsight engineering team are higly-certified Cisco, VMware, and EMC experts. Our engineers specialize in data center technologies and can deliver your Vblock in a number of deployment models.

Features and Capabilities

Cisco Validated Design

Cisco engineers have refined, tested, and proven the Vblock to be a powerful solution for the modern data center.

Best of Breed Equipment

The Vblock includes the best hardware that Cisco and VCE have to offer.

Ease of Deployment

A converged infrastructure solution is essentially an instruction manual for a successful deployment. Using such a proven solution cuts down on confusion and deployment times.


It is made with a modular architecture. This allows you to scale any single component without disrupting the rest of the data center. Increase computer or storage at will to fit your needs.

VCE Vision™ Intelligent Operations

The Vblock is equipped with intelligent operation tools to make managing your solutions easier. Vision syncs with your existing data center management tool and gives it status updates. Together, Vision and Vblock can help alert you to upcoming issues before they pose a threat.
