Product Details

Whether you are accelerating data center modernization, deploying a hybrid cloud or creating a developer-ready Kubernetes platform, VxRail delivers a turnkey experience that enables our customers to continuously innovate. The only fully integrated, pre-configured, and pre-tested hyperconverged system, VxRail transforms HCI networking and simplifies cloud adoption, while meeting any HCI use case - including support for many of the most demanding workloads – including Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops.

Dell EMC VxRail invests in the complete lifecycle, including advanced automation, making it easier for you from day one forward, allowing you to further simplify IT infrastructure and operations. VxRail Appliances on next generation PowerEdge servers are refined, optimized, and robust platforms that help you simplify your entire IT lifecycle – from deployment, to management, to scaling, to maintaining.

For edge implementations, two-node direct connect, now available with VxRail, makes VxRail and HCI more accessible to more organizations, while delivering the same enterprise features. Mixed generations of hardware in the same cluster, non-disruptive scaling and storage expansion provide a simple, predictable, “pay-as-you-grow” approach for future scale up and out as your requirements evolve. Additionally, enterprise capabilities such as patch node expansion, REST APIs, and flexible object renaming, accelerate growth, save time, and ensure VxRail complies with data center policies.

SmartFabric, now available on Dell EMC OS10 Enterprise Edition switches, offers autonomous fabric deployment, expansion, and lifecycle management to reduce time-to-market by simplifying and automating network configuration in VxRail deployments. VxRail and SmartFabric, is the first solution to deliver fully automated network awareness and configuration during set up, cluster expansion, and during day-to-day management.

VxRail offers 100% operational transparency between VxRail Manager and vCenter, meaning day-to-day, all virtualization management is done within the familiar vCenter Server interface. Additional IT and Cloud automation can be provided with optional software allowing you to seamlessly integrate VxRail as the foundation of your data center infrastructure, as well as advanced cloud-enabling technologies.
