Business-Ready Configurations for Virtualization are reference architectures designed to aid in ordering, deploying and maintaining a virtualization infrastructure. These architectures are designed to meet specific needs through the use of various server, storage and virtualization technologies available from Dell.

The reference architectures defined in this document are targeted at large enterprise virtualization needs. They include Dell™ PowerEdge™ M610 and M910 blade servers, Dell EqualLogic™ PS6010X storage and Microsoft® Hyper-V™ technology. They are built on a 10 Gigabit (Gb) network architecture using Dell PowerConnect™ M8024 blade-chassis switch modules. The extensive design and engineering work put into this solution enables you to quickly and confidently deploy this architecture into production environments, helping to eliminate costly and time-consuming trial-and-error work often encountered during complex deployments.
