Dell EMC PowerFlex is a Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) solution that uses a software-defined storage layer running on Dell PowerEdge servers, with networking components and management software. PowerFlex OS software creates a pool of storage capacity from local flash and hard disk drives that is shared between the VMs running on each server, or node. Like most HCI solutions, PowerFlex provides a standardized, agile infrastructure for supporting a wide range of potential use cases including VDI, server virtualization and private cloud, to name a few.
There are over a dozen vendors marketing HCI appliances, besides Dell EMC, including Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, Cisco HyperFlex, HPE SimpliVity and NetApp HCI, among others. These and the other leading products are included in the Evaluator Group Research HCI comparison matrix and associated Product Briefs, Analyses and Evaluation Guide.
