Figure 5. Dell EMC HCI portfolio
The Dell EMC hyperconverged infrastructure portfolio includes both systems and rack-scale offerings and differentiates with both fully-integrated VMware-based solutions or opportunities to get turnkey outcomes through hypervisor choice, bare metal or multi-hypervisor options.
Systems accelerate the transformation of both the compute and storage layers for customers’ datacenters by delivering turnkey outcomes on all-flash, software-defined, scale-out architectures. Rack-scale offerings offer additional transformation for those customers who are ready to fully modernize their datacenter by adopting software defined networking as well as compute and storage in a fully integrated, turnkey fashion.
Building upon the bedrock of the modern datacenter, Dell EMC delivers the #1 hyperconverged infrastructure portfolio purpose-built for HCI with the newest generation Dell EMC PowerEdge server platform. This portfolio delivers tailor-made performance and reliability powerful enough for any workload, combined with a polished approach to intelligent deployment and operations that simplifies and accelerates IT. Dell EMC HCI on latest generation PowerEdge servers are powerful, purposeful, and polished hyperconverged platforms that provide the ideal foundation for software-defined datacenter initiatives.
Customers demand more performance and reliability as HCI moves into the core datacenter where it must run a wider range of applications and workloads. With improved performance (double the IOPS), better economics (up to 3x more VDI users per node), and flexibility (more configurability to meet more use cases), Dell EMC HCI on latest generation PowerEdge servers has enough power for any workload.
Dell EMC PowerEdge servers are purpose-built for HCI. With up to 150 customer HCI requirements built-in, PowerEdge servers are designed specifically for and tailored to HCI workloads that depend on the tenets of both servers and storage. This results in a more consistent, predictable, and reliable high-performing HCI that can meet any use case. With our comprehensive portfolio, Dell EMC can deliver the best fit for your customers’ specific HCI needs – from workload requirements, to customer environment/standardization, to deployment preferences.
Dell EMC leads in hyperconverged sales with over 29% market share according to IDC. More customers are choosing Dell EMC HCI over all others. Dell EMC PowerEdge is the world’s best-selling server. Industry-leading Dell EMC HCI built on industry-leading PowerEdge, coupled with a single point of support and full lifecycle management for the entire system, makes for a winning solution.
