Converged IT Infrastructure Solutions

Adapt to any workload with converged solutions.

Help reduce costs and automate operations with converged solutions that integrate servers, storage, networking and management into single solutions. Converged infrastructure and hyper-converged solutions from Dell allow you to tailor infrastructure to your workloads. For an in-depth discussion, read this Ovum white paper.

Take advantage of one of the broadest, most flexible workload-optimized portfolio of converged solutions, designed to scale traditional and modern applications with common, standards-based architectures and simplified management. You can harness the power of convergence with Dell solutions — from our award winning converged platforms and unified management to hyper-converged solutions optimized for your workloads.

PowerEdge FX — revolutionary convergence                 

PowerEdge FXEngineered for simplicity to converge your infrastructure at a workload level, Dell PowerEdge FX architecture enables you to precisely tailor, quickly deploy and easily manage your infrastructure. Start small with your software-defined converged infrastructure but scale quickly and easily with compute, storage and I/O modules that combine in a compact 2U chassis that provides 50 percent more server-side storage than comparable 2U platforms*.

Solve for virtually any workload with PowerEdge FX. You can provide highly-available web services or dedicated hosting, and run private clouds or highly-virtualized environments with a converged platform that provides among the highest-density and processing power, per rack U, in the industry.

PowerEdge M1000eReduce the cost and complexity of blade deployment and management in enterprise data centers with the outstanding efficiency and performance per watt of the PowerEdge M1000e blade enclosure. The M1000e supports full- half- and quarter-height blades and achieves 60 percent greater density than 1U rack servers by incorporating the latest power, cooling, I/O and management technologies into a highly available dense package.

Choose excellent price/performance in a great virtualization platform. You can support future blade technologies and benefit from outstanding efficiency with the flexible, scalable M1000e.

Unified management

Unified ManagementDell OpenManage streamlines the management of converged infrastructure with innovative enterprise systems management tools. Simplify converged administration while still providing bandwidth to build and manage entire data centers by replacing multiple enterprise-level systems management tools with a single, complete, modular management platform.
Manage at the server, chassis or rack level depending on the management style that suits your environment. Deploy and provision servers faster and automate daily operations with the agent-free integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller and the Dell Chassis Management controller (CMC).

Performance based on "Oracle RAC performance: Dell PowerEdge FX2 with Fluid Cache for SAN vs. competing cache solution", a January 2015 Principled Technologies report commissioned by Dell comparing a Dell PowerEdge FX2 and HP ProLiant DL380p. Actual performance will vary based on configuration, usage and manufacturing variability. Reduced cost based on Dell internal analysis using U.S. list pricing taken from dell.com and hp.com in October 2014, and a performance gain of 3.7 x more NOPM.
