Dell EMC World 2016 (October 18-20 | Austin, Texas)
Bring PowerEdge to VxRail, VxRack
Hyper-converged Infrastructure integrates IT components in a scalable rack or appliance allowing you to modernize your data center with simplified management, improved performance, and elastic scalability.
Dell EMC VxRail is the only fully integrated, preconfigured, and tested HCI appliance powered by VMware Virtual SANTM and is the easiest and fastest way to extend a VMware environment. VxRail provides a simple, cost effective hyper-converged solution that solves a wide range of your challenges and supports most applications and workloads.
Dell EMC VxRack System consists of hyper-converged rack-scale engineered systems, with integrated networking, to achieve the scalability and management requirements of traditional and cloud native workloads. The VxRack family is purposely designed to enable customers to quickly deploy Infrastructure-as-a-Service and/or Private Cloud architectures.
Now, Dell EMC is integrating the Dell PowerEdge servers into the VxRail and VxRack hyper-converged systems. The VxRail and VxRack systems used servers from original design manufacturer Quanta, we will continue offering appliances with Quanta systems for those customers that may still want them. However, with the PowerEdge systems, we can offer a broader range of VxRail configurations, address more workloads and bring hyper-converged solutions to smaller customers,
These new configurations are powered by Intel's Xeon "Broadwell" chips as well as VMware's vSphere and VSAN technologies, delivering 40 percent more CPU performance for the same price and all-flash nodes that offer twice the storage of previous versions.
For storage-intensive workloads like data analytics and Microsoft Exchange, customers can use VxRail appliances based on the PowerEdge R730xd servers. Workloads that need graphics support can use configurations with the PowerEdge R730 systems that include GPU accelerators from Nvidia and Advanced Micro Devices.
In addition, Dell EMC is now offering an entry-level three-node model in a 3U (5.25-inch) form factor that can support up to 200 virtual machines and comes in at less than $45,000. It's aimed at smaller companies and remote or branch offices.
The larger VxRack System 1000 is based on PowerEdge R630 or R730xd systems that bring greater capacity and 40 percent more CPU performance without costing more money. Dell EMC is offering 20 new configurations, including all-flash offerings
