Dell VxRail is a Hyperconverged Infrastructure appliance solution comprised of VMware software and Ethernet-connected Dell PowerEdge servers with internal storage devices. Using vSAN software-defined storage (SDS), VxRail 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 VxRail provides a standardized, agile infrastructure for supporting a wide range of potential use cases including ROBO, VDI, server virtualization and private cloud, to name a few.

HCI competitive solutions include Nutanix Cloud Platform, Cisco HyperFlex, and HPE SimpliVity, among others. VMware also sells vSAN through server partners’ Ready Node configurations, which are not as tightly engineered with vSAN as VxRail. Dell also sells PowerFlex HCI appliances that do not use vSAN for storage. These and the other leading products are included in the Evaluator Group Research Hyperconverged comparison matrix and associated Product Briefs and Analyses.
