The path to IT transformation can be daunting, from virtualizing the data center, to embracing the cloud, to the adoption of hybrid cloud. An HCI solution—one that virtualizes compute, storage, and network resources together—can help simplify deployment and manage operations costs while providing increased agility and scalability.
As a core building block of the software-defined data center (SDDC), vSAN powers leading HCI solutions with a high-performance architecture native to vSphere. Dell EMC PowerEdge vSAN Ready Nodes combine the flexibility and ease of vSAN deployment in a validated, preconfigured environment.
We tested the most demanding part of a deployment in terms of I/O and performance. Our results showcased that these high-intensity OLTP databases can scale with near linear performance without degradation. Our results coupled with the validated, preconfigured Dell EMC vSAN Ready Node ecosystem provide an ideal choice for customers deploying SQL Server 2019.
