Say Hello to Dell EMC VxRail Appliances

Over 60% of organizations are looking to deploy HCI, if they haven’t already.3 And a lot of them are choosing VxRail.

According to IDC research, revenue from Dell Technologies’ HCI portfolio, including VxRail Appliances, VxRack Systems and XC Series, outgrew the total HCI market—one of the fastest growing IT markets—by more than two-fold and represents 28 percent of hyper-converged systems sold in the third quarter of 2016.

Dell EMC VxRail™, powered by vSAN and offered with Dell PowerEdge servers, is the only specifically developed and fully optimized hyper-converged appliance co-designed and built with VMware. Simply put, VxRail is the easiest and fastest way to simplify and extend a VMware environment.

Hyper-Converged Appliances That Extend And Simplify VMware Environments

Managed through the well-known VMware vCenter Server, VxRail Appliances provide existing VMware customers an experience they are familiar with allowing them to seamlessly integrate VxRail into their existing IT infrastructure.

VxRail Appliances are fully loaded with integrated Dell EMC mission-critical data services including replication, backup and cloud tiering at no additional charge and are the industry’s only hyper-converged appliance featuring kernel layer integration between VMware vSAN and the vSphere hypervisor, delivering unique and unmatched performance and efficiency. As a fully optimized and supported VMware-based solution, the appliances also integrated with VMware’s cloud management platform and end-user computing solutions. VxRail is also a platform for introducing advanced SDDC offerings like NSX, vRealize Automation and vRealize Operations.

Start Small and Grow

The Dell EMC VxRail Appliance allows you to start small – with as few as three nodes - and grow incrementally, scaling capacity and performance easily and non-disruptively up to 64 nodes per cluster. Single node scaling and storage capacity expansion provide a predictable, “pay-as-you-grow” approach for future scale up and out as your business and user requirements evolve without up-front planning.

Flexibility and Choice

The Dell EMC VxRail Appliance provides extreme configuration flexibility with purpose-built appliances that are designed to address any use case, including big data, analytics, 2D/3D visualization, or collaboration virtualized applications. VxRail Appliances, built with the latest Intel Broadwell processors, also offer a 3-node starting configurations for a lower entry point. The addition of PowerEdge server based VxRail Appliances expands the portfolio - offering GPU optimized, storage dense, high performance computing, and entry level options - to give you the flexibility to choose the VxRail Appliance that is best for your need.
