VCF on VxRail uses VxRail Manager to deploy and configure VxRail clusters that are powered by vSAN or external storage. It is also used to perform the LCM of VMware ESXi, vSAN, and hardware firmware using a fully integrated and seamless SDDC Manager orchestrated process. It monitors the health of hardware components and provides remote service support. This level of integration provides a unique turnkey hybrid cloud experience not available on any other infrastructure.
VxRail Manager provides the glue for the HCI hardware and software and is all life-cycle-managed together. Focusing on the glue and automation across the deployment, updating, monitoring, and maintenance phases of the product life cycle, VxRail Manager delivers value by removing the need for heavy operational staffing. This automation improves operational efficiency. It reduces LCM risk, and significantly changes the focus of staff by providing value back to the business rather than them having to spend time maintaining the infrastructure.
