- New VxRail dynamic nodes support VMware HCI Mesh, allowing users to independently scale storage and compute for better resource management
- VxRail dynamic nodes with
VMware Cloud Foundationintroduce connectivity with Dell EMC PowerStore, PowerMax and Unity XT to support additional data intensive workloads VxRail HCI System Softwareintroduces automated self-installation tools that give customers more deployment control
As the only HCI system jointly engineered with
"Customers turn to Dell EMC VxRail because it provides a simple IT experience and path to hybrid cloud," said
Extreme performance for mission-critical workloads
New VxRail systems with the latest Dell EMC PowerEdge server technology, including 3rd Generation Intel Xeon® Scalable processors, deliver 42% more cores for faster performance when compared to previous generations.3 Optional Intel Optane persistent memory 200 series increases bandwidth by 32% on average over the previous generation.4
Select VxRail systems are also being updated with 3rd Generation AMD EPYC™ processors, offering customers flexibility and scalability with up to 64 cores per processor with increased performance5 to support a wide range of workloads and use cases.
Continued advancements to
- VxRail V Series now offers NVIDIA A40 or A100 Tensor Core GPU options. When combined with NVIDIA AI Enterprise software and NVMe caching capabilities, they offer greater performance and simpler deployment for demanding AI and machine learning applications.
- VxRail P Series provides up to a 20% increase in capacity to better support a range of workloads such as VDI, streaming video and medical imaging.
- VxRail E Series offers customers more flexibility with 50% more PCIe slots to add additional resources such as network or fibre channel cards.
Customers can also expect faster application response from Intel-based PowerEdge systems with the addition of PCIe Gen 4, which doubles bandwidth and offers 33% more PCIe lanes to speed data processing.6
Introducing Dell EMC VxRail dynamic nodes
"IT leaders want to reduce data center complexity, make the most of their IT budgets, and optimize productivity. Hyperconverged infrastructure helps them do all three," said
"Combining the simplicity and agility of
VxRail software supports self-deployment and latest
VxRail HCI System Software advancements give customers greater control over installation with new self-service tools. Customers can validate, orchestrate and automate cluster deployment on their own time, ideal for enterprises with remote or distributed environments. Additional software capabilities allow customers to better meet workload demands by dynamically redeploying or reallocating nodes within clusters.
Further software advancements make lifecycle management (LCM) even more streamlined by offering VMware updates, such as NSX-T and Tanzu, in a single upgrade cycle. LCM is further simplified by adding the NVIDIA AI Enterprise and
