The Dell EMC VxBlock System 1000 Converged Infrastructure (CI) consists of Cisco’s UCS servers, Cisco networking components and Dell EMC storage systems, sold as an integrated, rack-level solution. Like other CIs, VxBlock System 1000 is designed to provide a complete infrastructure stack for a specific use case, such as database, cloud computing, server or desktop virtualization, etc.
VxBlock was originally called “VBlock” when first released by VCE, a joint venture between EMC, Cisco and VMware in 2009, which became the “Converged Platform Division” of Dell EMC in 2016. VxBlock 1000 is a single SKU that replaces the lineup of VxBlock 350/540/740 systems which were targeted at more specific use cases and featured different Dell EMC storage systems.
VxBlock System 1000 is a turnkey solution that is sold and supported by Dell EMC which handles all Level 1 and Level 2 support. It is an “engineered system”, not a certified or validated design, so most deployments involve some pre-sales configuration work that’s done by Dell EMC or their partners.
