Dell and VMware jointly develop VxRail, which is fully integrated with products from Dell and VMware, and designed and preconfigured to operate as a scalable, hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution. VxRail is managed through the vCenter Server interface using the vClient and the VxRail Manager plug-in. This solution provides users with a familiar vSphere experience, enables streamlined deployment and operations, and extends the use of existing IT tools and processes.
VxRail is managed using VxRail management software for hardware and maintenance tasks, and software life cycle management (LCM). VxRail incorporates supportability and serviceability capabilities for ease of management.
The VxRail software bundle is licensed and preloaded onto hardware. It consists of the following components (specific software versions not shown):
VxRail is fully compatible with other software in the VMware ecosystem. For software products and versions that are supported on specific versions of vSphere, see the VMware Product Interoperability Matrix.
