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.
When EMC launched the VCE VxRail Appliance Family I spoke to journalists, analysts and customers passionately about how this turnkey hyper-converged infrastructure appliance (HCIA) would extend and simplify VMware environments. Today, five months later and with sales of 1700 nodes — which translates to 25000 cores, 400TB RAM and 16PB of storage — in more than 90 countries, I am even more confident that we will have the #1 HCIA offering sooner than later. When I meet with customers and potential customers, that’s when I truly experience their enthusiastic response to VxRail Appliances. They’re amazed by all the ways VxRail Appliances can help achieve their IT and business outcomes. Examples include Convergys, Dimension Data, Fujifilm Medical Systems, and Land Rover BAR.
The VP of Infrastructure was at her desk trying to make a decision. She needed to finalize the plan to refresh the company’s remote offices before the evening was through.
This project had more visibility than she was used to. While very few people have the impact on the business like she does, her colleagues usually take her and her team’s work for granted. They build “systems” that are composed of information technology, processes and people. Systems that run the business enable rapid decision-making, and IT innovation. The business runs without anyone necessarily knowing who is behind the systems they’re using. Unfortunately when something breaks they suddenly remember….
