Hyper-converged appliances that extend and simplify VMware environments
Managed through the well-known VMware vCenter Server, with even tighter integration and lifecycle management functionality in vCenter, VxRail Appliances provide existing VMware customers an experience you are familiar with allowing you to accelerate IT Transformation in your VMware infrastructure.
VxRail Appliances are fully loaded with integrated Dell EMC mission-critical data services including replication and backup 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 integrate 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
As the world’s most configurable HCI appliances, Dell EMC VxRail provides extreme flexibility with purpose-built platforms that are designed to address even the most demanding applications and workloads.
VxRail Appliances have been updated with next-generation technology that provides future proofing for your infrastructure, including NVMe cache drives, 25GbE networking, NVIDIA P40 GPUs, Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors with high memory configurations, and new automated hardening scripts and VxRail Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG).
