Dell Technologies is launching new hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) advancements to further simplify customer IT transformations with more powerful systems. New Dell EMC VxRail Appliances and VxRack SDDC Systems further extend Dell EMC’s HCI global systems sales leadership with adoption of advanced technologies and the latest innovations from Dell EMC and VMware. The combined technologies can accelerate customers’ abilities to transform to modern, multi-cloud environments.
“As HCI systems are increasingly being used for core data center applications, customers are adopting VxRail and VxRack SDDC as the foundation for deploying clouds of all types,” said Rajesh Ramnani, Regional Director, CPSD, Dell EMC India. “These technologies, co-developed by Dell EMC and VMware, offer a simple and clearly defined path to private, hybrid and multi-clouds to help our customers transform their IT infrastructure to free up valuable staff time while enabling IT to be the enabler for faster, nimbler businesses”, added Ramnani.
According to IDC, global HCI system sales surpassed $3.7 billion in 2017 vendor revenue, up 64.3 percent from 2016, as the fastest growing segment of the overall converged systems market. Dell EMC led all vendors in global HCI systems sales in 2017, with a 27.1 percent revenue share while growing 145 percent year over year at a rate more than 2.25 times faster than the overall industry. Meanwhile, IDC predicts the HCI solutions market will reach $10.3 billion by 2022 and India would be a USD 63M market for HCI by 2020. The market is expected to grow at a GAGR of 43 percent. The converged market will be USD 180M with a modest CAGR of 9 percent.
Dell EMC VxRail, the top selling Dell EMC HCI solution from the world’s leading HCI systems portfolio, is now even more flexible and powerful with the addition of several advanced technologies. VxRail continues to set the standard for simplifying and modernizing VMware environments, regardless of where an organization is on their IT transformation journey.
Additionally, for customers looking to build a complete Software-Defined Data Center using VxRail as a building block, they can use the guidance of the latest VMware Validated Designs (VVD). Using the guidance of VVD for SDDC 4.2 for VxRail, customers can more easily architect an SDDC with complete NSX and vRealize functionality with less risk.
While, Dell EMC VxRack SDDC is the infrastructure foundation for realizing a multi-cloud vision. It is the only turnkey cloud platform, based on VxRail hardware, built on 14th generation PowerEdge servers, delivered with integrated networking, and powered by VMware Cloud Foundation and Dell EMC software. VxRack SDDC delivers the simplest path to a hybrid or multi-cloud approach with an automated elastic cloud infrastructure at rack scale.
