Demanding applications require a modernized infrastructure that is intelligently designed and correctly sized to meet current performance SLAs and to scale easily to accommodate future growth.
In this white paper, we discussed the systematic and consultative approach Dell Technologies takes in the presales process using Live Optics and our exclusive Azure Stack HCI Sizer Tool. We also shared synthetic testing results using VMFleet 1.0 on a Dell Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI cluster running four AX-7525 nodes and two S5232F-ON switches. These results indicated that the model cluster we set up in the lab was capable of impressive performance - even running in a degraded state with two nodes failed. Finally, we highlighted best practices surrounding support, maintenance, life cycle management, and monitoring for resource-intensive infrastructures.
