VxRail: The New Season of Infrastructure Deployment
As the season shifts and the leaves change color here in New England I’m reminded of the constant transition in technology. In this case the industry shift to hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) has really changed the color of infrastructure deployment in the datacenter. At VMware we recognized the power of this new platform early on and working with Dell EMC we co-developed the fastest growing HCI platform in the market –the Dell EMC VxRail Appliance. VxRail is powered by VMware Virtual SAN, an enterprise grade software defined storage technology that integrates seamlessly with VMware vSphere and vCenter Server, providing industry leading performance and ease of management.
The beauty of the VxRail HCI appliance is that it has some great use cases for the full spectrum of company sizes. Within the mid-market and in smaller IT shops, VxRail represents a system that can be used to consolidate multiple systems and applications in the datacenter or serve as an application specific resource (e.g. Virtual Desktops).
In the Enterprise market we’ve seen a similar adoption model with VxRail Appliances being deployed as either special purpose machines at the edge (e.g. DNS, Firewalls, Virtual Desktops, Mobile Device Management) or in remote offices.
