The Power of Dell + EMC = Increased Choice, Broader Use Cases, Lower Price Points for Customers

first_imgToday we announced the inclusion of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers into our hyper-converged infrastructure portfolio (HCI). Incorporating the world’s number one server platform into our already market leading portfolio is testament to our vision of Dell EMC being stronger, and better together. We have used the combined power of the two companies to vertically integrate all the critical ingredients of the hyper-converged infrastructure stack, from hyper-converged software to the latest innovations in x86 hardware in order to deliver increased choice, wider use cases, lower entry price points, and improved all-flash economics for our customers. There could be no better validation of how Dell EMC is helping customers move forward by incorporating the technology they want and need to become more agile, flexible and competitive.At the Converged Platforms and Solutions Division, customers are at the heart of everything we do.  That’s why when, during the formation of Dell EMC, there was a clear demand for incorporating the mighty PowerEdge servers into our portfolio, we moved fast to provide our customers with the increased choice that the ubiquitous PowerEdge servers offer. When the IDC and Gartner quarterly server market share reports for Q2 2016 recognized PowerEdge as #1 in server shipments worldwide, it was clear that its addition to Dell EMC’s winning HCI portfolio would add more choice, flexibility and produce fantastic outcomes for our customers.We know that use cases and workloads vary greatly, and we strongly believe that one size does not fit all when it comes to HCI. Therefore the expansion of Dell EMC’s portfolio of HCI to support a much wider variety of customer use cases is the right way forward. A broader choice not only enables customers to do more, it can also provide better value and more appropriate, targeted solutions.Hear what Chad Sakac has to say and read more on his blog.Our customers opting for VxRail Appliances will now benefit from the increased performance of the latest Intel Broadwell platforms and a new 3-node entry for a lower starting point. New configurations based on PowerEdge servers will include:Storage dense: high capacity nodes configured for storage-heavy environments like Microsoft Exchange or big data environments that offer the lowest unit costGPU optimized: nodes optimized for graphics-heavy environments that benefit from faster rendering time, such as 2D/3D visualization.Entry level: A cost-optimized option that gives Dell EMC a smaller form factor for remote and branch offices.For the VxRack System, two new PowerEdge-based configurations are available, both of which can be configured with all-flash, storage only, or hybrid. Compared to previous VxRack System all-flash node configuration options, the Dell EMC PowerEdge servers provide better all-flash economics, application acceleration and unparalleled value.All VxRail Appliances and VxRack System customers, regardless of size, can take advantage of Dell EMC synergies to deliver hyper-converged solutions for their data center core and edge locations. Adding more value, our hyper-converged portfolio of appliances and racks is optimized for both traditional and cloud-native workloads running in mixed environments.In keeping with our commitment to putting customers first, we are also facilitating investment protection for customers. They can buy existing appliances and racks or new Dell EMC PowerEdge-based systems, and mix and match these nodes in a cluster as required and, if they want, upgrade to newer architectures over time.The addition of PowerEdge servers in the VxRail and VxRack portfolios is a great example of why Dell and EMC are better together not just in principle, but in reality – we are delivering real customer value by innovating fast, leveraging Dell’s world-class supply chain to drive down costs and offering our customers increased choice and flexibility.last_img read more
