The Solutions Center features the full suite of Presidio, EMC and VMware hybrid Cloud offerings and has the ability to show both private and public cloud functionality and management capabilities from both Presidio and VMware. Technologies featured in the center include Presidio Managed Cloud, XtremIO®, VNX®, EMC RecoverPoint®, Isilon®, ViPR®, EMC ViPR SRM®, vRealize Operations Enterprise® (vCOPS), vRealize Automation® (vCAC 6.1), vRealize® Air™, vRealize Log Insight®, Avamar® and Data Domain®.
