Vblock is VCE’s hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) product family. Vblock systems are offered in a range of preconfigured rack-based data center machines. VCE supplies clients with balanced power, cooling and geometry to simplify data center planning for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Vblock systems are made up of storage, provisioning and data protection services from EMC, switches and servers made by Cisco, along with VMware VSphere virtualization. Support services are provided by VCE. 

VCE stands for Virtual Computing Environment. The company arose as the result of a joint effort between VMware, Cisco and EMC.  VCE is currently owned by Dell EMC and has over 1500 clients around the globe.
