Dell EMC and VMware Join Forces on New VxRack SDDC Rack Scale Hyper-converged Systems Now Built on PowerEdge

The launch of VxRail Appliances pioneered a new product development, go-to-market and selling approach, making them one of our company’s fastest growing solutions. Today, VxRail is winning in the hyper-converged appliance space because heritage EMC, VMware and Dell teams, as Dell Technologies, have collaborated closely on a common solution, built on market-leading technologies, to deliver the easiest and fastest way for customers to extend their VMware environments.

Based on customer feedback and adoption, it only makes sense to bring this model to Dell EMC rack scale hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). The leaders in servers, storage and virtual computing have joined together once again to engineer the Dell EMC VxRack System with SDDC. For customers standardized on VMware, the new VxRack SDDC, based on the Dell EMC PowerEdge platform and powered by VMware Cloud Foundation, offers a complete, turnkey software-defined data center that delivers a rack scale hyper-converged solution to simplify the journey to private cloud.

While our Dell EMC HPC team spends this busy week meeting with countless customers, partners and fellow industry leaders at SC16, I think back to our participation at SC15 last year and how much we’ve accomplished in one lightning fast year.

At last year’s annual HPC industry conference, we said we were going to disrupt, democratize and drive industry differentiation in a way that takes what we’ve learned from the most sophisticated research institutions and government agency supercomputers, and making it easier for a broader set of organizations and businesses to benefit and transform from HPC systems in this digital world.

Based on that declaration, we have significantly grown our business. In fact, leading HPC market firm Intersect360 Research just declared that Dell EMC holds THE #1 position in total HPC revenue share heading into 2017.

Andy Crowne

Vice President Industry Solutions and InfoArchive at Dell EMC
