EMC Corporation announced customer adoption of the VCE VxRail Appliance is exceeding expectations.  VxRail Appliances are the hyper-converged infrastructure appliances that are jointly engineered with VMware and are fully integrated, preconfigured, and pre-tested for VMware environments.

With sales in more than 45 countries in less than four months, VxRail Appliances are delivering simplicity, scalability and automation at the right price point for small/midsize data centers and for enterprise departmental and edge environments.

IT organizations in industries including finance, government and public sector, retail, technology, healthcare and manufacturing and distribution are choosing VxRail Appliances because of their:

  • VMware Integration – Jointly engineered by EMC and VMware for standardized ease-of-management
  • Consolidation with Scalability – Starts small and scales with single node upgrades; reduces data center footprint and CapEx
  • Industry-Leading Reliability – Jointly engineered and integrated by EMC and VMware with a single support number for end-to-end accountability
  • High-Performance – Flash Speed at Hybrid prices and free EMC RecoverPoint for VMs
  • Flexible Applications – Supports small/midsize data centers and for enterprise departmental and edge environments.

Through the use of the latest 3-D or vertical NAND (3-D NAND) technologies and VMWare Virtual SAN 6.2, VxRail Appliances deliver much higher flash capacity than any other competitive offering at a lower price. VMware Virtual SAN 6.2 features an advanced performance optimization architecture that now adds data efficiency capabilities – deduplication, compression and erasure coding – for all-flash storage that delivers highly cost-efficient performance while optimizing the use of flash drives.

As a result, VxRail Appliances all-flash configurations have reached the crossover point between flash and magnetic storage pricing and are offered at the same price per raw gigabyte as hybrid appliances.

Chad Sakac, President, VCE, the Converged Platforms Division of EMC said, “The incredible demand for the VxRail Appliance Family illustrates that organizations of all sizes in all industry sectors need a hyper-converged appliance that brings together the best of EMC and VMware in a single product family with one point of support that delivers simplicity and scalability at the right price.”

“ Clearly customers have been waiting for a hyper-converged infrastructure appliance that seamlessly integrates with VMware to extend and simplify their existing virtualized environments. With the general availability of the all-flash VxRail Appliances that offer unbelievably good economics EMC can address even more customer requirements,” he added.
