Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) Platform Diversity Leads to Strength in Numbers
When all you have in your toolkit is a single type of hammer, it’s little wonder that every workload starts to look like the same proverbial nail. That’s the case with vendors that give IT organizations the choice of only one hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) platform. They may have integrated compute and data storage onto a single platform, but, as is often the case with any platform, the devil is in the details.
At Dell EMC, we offer two distinct types of HCI platforms based on appliances and rack-based systems that uniquely address different customer requirements. Within the context of an IT environment where organizations have standardized on VMware, those two platforms manifest in the form of VxRack SDDC that unify compute, storage and networking and VxRail Appliances that unify compute and storage. Both of these platforms are co-engineered with VMware to provide higher levels of performance than any rival platform.
Explore the results of the Principled Technologies tests comparing Dell EMC VxRail to HPE HC 380. These materials include an infographic, video and gated full report with the metrics and proof points from testing.
