Dell EMC HCI Solutions for Microsoft Windows Server encompass various configurations of AX nodes from Dell Technologies to power the primary compute cluster that is deployed as a hyperconverged infrastructure. This hyperconverged infrastructure that is built by using these AX nodes uses a flexible solution architecture rather than a fixed component design. The following figure illustrates one of the flexible solution architectures. It consists of a compute cluster alongside the redundant top-of-rack (ToR) switches, a separate out-of-band network, and an existing management infrastructure in the data center.
Note: Dell EMC HCI Solutions for Microsoft Windows Server are available in both hybrid and all-flash configurations. For more information about available configurations, see the solution overview.
