The VxRail system is assembled with proven server-node hardware that has been integrated, tested, and validated as a complete solution by Dell EMC. All the nodes in the current generation of VxRail use Intel Xeon Scalable family processors. The Intel Xeon Scalable family processors feature a multi-threaded, multi-core CPU designed to handle diverse workloads for cloud services, high-performance computing, and networking. The number of cores and memory capacity differ for each VxRail model.
The figure below shows a physical view of a node server with its processors, memory and supporting components. All VxRail models have similar components but may be physically laid out differently.
