Dell EMC vSAN

Dell EMC + vSAN for your HCI needs

New applications are producing more data than ever, challenging IT to adopt a simpler, more streamlined and cost effective approach to storage. This has drawn many enterprises to VMware® vSAN™ — a software defined storage (SDS) solution for hyper converged infrastructure (HCI). vSAN delivers high performance, flash optimized hyper converged storage for any application — at a fraction of the cost of traditional, purpose built storage and other less efficient HCI solutions.

But one of the biggest misconceptions about the software defined world is that the hardware doesn’t matter anymore. Quite the opposite. The performance of the software — and your return on investment (ROI) — depends heavily on the performance and reliability of the hardware. And not all hardware is created equal. You need a partner you can trust to deliver reliable infrastructure in easily purchased and deployed building blocks that can scale at the speed required to keep pace with data growth.

Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes are pre-configured, tested and certified to run VMware vSAN. Each Ready Node consists of the right amount of CPU, memory, network I/O controllers, HDDs and SSDs. Dell EMC also offers premiere vSAN Ready Node configurations; each model boasts an Identity Module that self-identifies the server as a vSAN Ready Node upon boot-up to streamline deployment, updates, and more.

Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes, built on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, enable easy deployment with factory installed, pre-configured and pre-tested configurations which can add up to a solution that scales quickly to meet growing needs. PowerEdge servers, the bedrock of the modern data center, feature 150 custom-requirements for HCI built-in.
