VxFlex Ready Nodes are truly one of a kind
The competition neither validates Dell EMC VxFlex OS nor offers a solution like VxFlex Ready Nodes.
Dell EMC VxFlex Ready Nodes bring together next-generation, rack-optimized Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers with Dell EMC VxFlex OS software in a reliable, quick and easy-to-deploy building block that’s ideal for server SAN, heterogenous virtualized environments and high-performance databases. You can choose to configure VxFlex Ready Nodes with more compute and memory power, transforming your solution into a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) with massive storage capacity. Best of all, you can mix and match configuration types in the same cluster.
For high performance databases, the ability to satisfy various sets of business requirements and service level agreements on the same infrastructure without impacting any other workloads is key to a successful deployment. Dell EMC VxFlex Ready Nodes offer a way to consolidate and optimize traditional applications and database infrastructures, handling the independent needs of each application.
SAN-driven storage comes with numerous limitations in a virtual environment. Dell EMC VxFlex Ready Nodes optimize traditional virtualized infrastructures by providing highly scalable server-based storage for heterogeneous platforms, including support for multiple hypervisors, operating systems, and bare metal configurations.
Dell EMC VxFlex Ready Nodes abstract the direct-attached storage of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers into a pool of shared block storage. By converging the storage and compute on the same physical servers, this single and/or two-layer architecture helps to simplify management and optimize storage efficiency as the infrastructure grows from four to thousands of nodes.
