In the modern digital age, end users are steadily moving beyond traditional, stand-alone compute, storage, and network deployments. Instead, they are adopting CI solutions that also increase their operational efficiency. These CI solutions allow users to more quickly take advantage of emerging technologies such as software-defined infrastructure, accelerated computing, solid-state storage, and next-generation networks. These technologies offer greater flexibility and stability for next-generation businesses.
Dell EMC VxBlock System 1000 is a CI solution that is designed to accelerate and consolidate demanding Oracle and SQL Server database-related workloads, such as ERP applications, while interacting with data hubs. VxBlock 1000 integrates Cisco compute and networking into Dell EMC high-performance storage and VMware virtualization to form a unified system that is supported by Dell Technologies. VxBlock 1000 reduces complexity in the data center as it eliminates hardware incompatibility, unifies management, and simplifies consolidation. From a data hub perspective, consolidation can reduce complexity and accelerate the connection of data systems within the hub.
VxBlock 1000 provides a stable, reliable, and operationally efficient platform for mission-critical and business-critical applications while ensuring performance and scalability for critical systems. VxBlock 1000 delivers scalable performance with ultralow latency. It consolidates and scales data-center-class applications (such as Oracle and SQL Server database applications), performance-centric databases, and emerging third-platform applications such as cloud, mobile, and social media. VxBlock 1000 is ideal for supporting SQL and Oracle databases and applications that demand the highest throughput at the lowest latency, such as OLTP workloads, OLAP workloads, and snapshot OLTP. Mixed workload performance on VxBlock 1000 is the topic of our use case testing for this platform.
If mission-critical applications fail, business productivity drops drastically, and the entire organization can lose its business edge. VxBlock 1000 reduces business risk by simplifying the management of the high-value workload. It provides the enterprise with a high degree of scalability and reliability, backed by rich data services and continuous system assessments that direct resources where they are most needed.
VxBlock 1000 is a prebuilt, preconfigured, fully integrated, and certified offering that provides the following advantages:
