Avago Demonstrates Virtual Hybrid Cloud in Collaboration With Supermicro and
VMware at VMworld 2014

VMware Virtual SAN Enables New Tier of High Performance, Elastic
Hypervisor-Converged Storage

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VMWORLD -- Avago Technologies
(Nasdaq:AVGO) today announced a demonstration in collaboration with Supermicro
(Nasdaq:SMCI) and VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW) of a virtual hybrid cloud that
offers the cost benefits of a public cloud while delivering the security of a
private cloud. Designed for multiple workloads that require high speed access
to storage including VDI, Tier 2 production, and dev/test, the cost-effective
solution is enabled by the combination of Avago and Supermicro
enterprise-class server hardware running VMware Virtual SAN™ software.

As developers strive to increase productivity, having improved access to more
sharable and scalable storage has become critical. A virtual hybrid cloud
allows IT organizations to easily deploy a storage solution that can deliver
Infrastructure as a Service from a dev/test site and then migrate to a
Software-Defined Data Center when production-ready.

"The virtual hybrid cloud solution using VMware Virtual SAN is based on
industry-supported standards and enables an enterprise-class infrastructure
that delivers the scalable, high performance virtualized data center storage
needed for today's developers," said Gaetan Castelein, senior director,
product management, Software-Defined Storage at VMware. "It also provides an
easy migration path while offering IT departments with an affordable,
manageable way to support dev/test and other application environments in the

"The demonstration at VMworld 2014 this week showcases a powerful solution for
developers to gain fast access to scalable storage without increasing the
complexity or cost of the storage itself," said Jas Tremblay, vice president
of marketing, Data Center Solutions Group, Avago. "The virtual hybrid cloud
model delivers all the benefits and economies of scale that are greater than
either a private or public cloud could do alone."

"Supermicro Green Computing solutions offer the widest range of Server
Building Blocks optimized for deploying highly scalable virtualization
infrastructure," said Don Clegg, vice president of marketing and business
development at Supermicro. "Our collaboration efforts with Avago and VMware
are delivering hybrid cloud solutions that offer maximized compute, I/O
performance and density in extremely energy efficient platforms. With ease of
deployment, manageability and support our combined solutions deliver maximum
performance per watt, per dollar, per square foot, reducing overall total cost
of ownership."

The live demonstration will be shown at the Supermicro booth #2217 at VMworld
2014 this week. VMware will also be demonstrating the dev/test on VSAN use
case at booth #1229.For more information about virtual hybrid cloud solutions
