Dell EMC Announces Its Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Will Be On VxRail Appliances
Launched a year ago, #DellEMC #VxRail is a #HCI offerings, bringing together a streamlined hardware, operating system, and software stack for implementing #VMware #vSAN (VMware jointly engineered the VxRail). In just 12 months Dell EMC has sold over 8,000 VxRail nodes (over 65PB of storage and 100K cores). These 8,000 nodes have gone to over 1,000 customers in 78 countries. Revenue from Dell EMC’s other HCI offerings (VxRack Systems and XC Series) combined with VxRail outgrew the total HCI market by more than two-fold and represents 28% of hyper-converged systems sold in the third quarter of 2016. According to 451 Research, three out of four hyper-converged deployments are in the core data center, and hybrid cloud is the next frontier for HCI. With this rising need, Dell EMC comes to the rescue with its EHC on VxRail. The EHC is delivered as a fully designed, integrated and tested engineered solution. Placing the EHC on a VxRail gives customers a turnkey hybrid cloud optimized for deployments ranging from 200 to 1000 virtual machines.
