Dell EMC updates hyperconverged VxRail, XC Series systems with latest PowerEdge servers
#DellEMC has refreshed its hyper-converged infrastructure lineup with its latest #PowerEdge servers as well as more configurations. The company said its hyper-converged infrastructure portfolio will get the 14th generation PowerEdge servers. @Dell EMC is also better optimizing its #hyperconverged systems for software defined workloads via #VMware. Hyper-converged systems are among the fastest growing areas in the data center. Dell EMC offers its #VxRail, which are geared toward @VMware customers, and #XC Series systems that are integrated with @Nutanix. The general idea behind converged systems is that they are easier to deploy and incorporate compute, networking, and storage under a simple support model. Dell EMC’s PowerEdge servers have the latest Xeon processors from Intel and have 150 custom requirements for software defined storage. The systems also get better support for solid-state drives, improved cooling and a common management platform. For Dell EMC, this is the second generation of PowerEdge servers integrated into the hyper converged lineup. VxRail was initially formed as a partnership with Cisco, EMC and VMware. Then Dell acquired EMC and integrated its servers to the hyperconverged portfolio along with other products. The hyper converged lineup includes an updated VxRail appliances with faster response times (2x), more configurations for SSDs, network connectivity, GPUs, and processors and support for Isilon SD Edge and software defined storage.
