The Challenge
Techedge, a company that aids organizations in accelerating their digital transformation, was facing a challenge with its Kubernetes-based services and solutions. The use of public cloud platforms, while initially beneficial, was proving to be costly and barely scalable when operating on a large scale. As their new line of business began to grow, it became necessary to move from the public cloud to a larger platform with more containers. This new platform required special customization, not just for the apps but also for the container-based model in general, in terms of both security and optimization settings, and customer preferences. This level of customization was not possible in the public cloud.
The Customer
About The Customer
Techedge is a company that helps organizations speed up their digital transformation through ongoing innovation. It develops services and solutions that combine business consulting, technology expertise, and a passion for innovation. With a business vision based on pragmatism and fast delivery, Techedge adds value to businesses while strengthening customers’ confidence through shared goals and long-term relationships. Its presence in international markets enables the scalability and geographic coverage of a global supplier, plus the commitment of a local partner, and the ability of a trusted strategic advisor.
The Solution
Techedge turned to its long-term partners, VMware and Dell, to develop a Kubernetes environment for its data center. The solution had to meet specific requirements: it had to be automatic, easy to operate, highly scalable, and focus on Day 0, Day 1, and Day 2 operations. VMware Tanzu was chosen as the solution that best met Techedge’s needs. After testing it in Techedge’s infrastructure and confirming its functionality and value, a hyperconverged infrastructure based on Dell EMC VxRail was deployed. This enabled software-defined storage based on VMware vSAN™, hosting all the Kubernetes workloads. Then, VMware NSX-T Data Center was deployed as an SDN solution to automate network deployment in both virtual machines and containers, thus implementing NSX Distributed Firewalls for a holistic, global approach to security across the platform.
Operational Impact
  • The implementation of the new platform has brought about significant changes for Techedge. The deployment of new Kubernetes clusters has become easier, along with easier platform administration. The solution provided by Dell EMC VxRail, based on VMware vSAN, offered Techedge resilient storage, enhanced performance, greater availability, flexibility, and scalability, and simplified, unified computing and storage environment management. VMware NSX-T Data Center offered higher levels of security, automation, and ease of network management. The new platform has enabled Techedge to upgrade workload security while retaining public cloud flexibility, with no need to increase the workforce and relying on full flexibility to respond to clients’ specific needs.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Easy deployment of new Kubernetes clusters
  • Easier platform administration
  • Resilient storage, enhanced performance, greater availability, flexibility and scalability
