The most recent vSphere and vSAN updates bring several new features to the market. The features provide VxRail customers with significant performance improvements across nearly all workload types and up to 58 percent IOPS increase with database workloads. The performance increases are visible across all workload types, small block and large block, for both reads and writes.
To enable customers to take advantage of these performance enhancements, Dell offers single-click system upgrades across multiple generations of VxRail dating back to mid-2018. For a list of these software versions, see the Dell EMC VxRail Release Notes (login required). For additional VxRail documentation, see References.
For customers who have already invested in the physical hardware technologies, no further hardware upgrades are needed. Customers can realize these performance improvements through the VxRail upgrades that are part of the VxRail maintenance contracts.
