Dell EMC VxRail is a Hyperconverged Infrastructure appliance solution comprised of VMware software and Ethernet-connected Dell PowerEdge servers with internal storage devices. Using vSAN softwaredefined 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.
There are over a dozen vendors marketing HCI appliances, besides Dell EMC, including some that also use vSAN as their SDS layer. Competitive solutions include Nutanix, Cisco HyperFlex, HPE SimpliVity and Pivot3, among others. These and the other leading products are included in the Evaluator Group Research Hyperconverged comparison matrix and associated Product Briefs, Analyses and Evaluation Guide.
