    Taneja Group: Overview of Dell XC Solutions

    Traditionally, converged infrastructure systems have been built using a three-tier architecture where compute, networking and storage, while integrated together in same rack, still consisted of best-in-breed standalone devices. These systems work well in stable, predictable environments, however, when a virtualization environment is dynamic with unpredictable growth, traditional three-tier architectures often times lack the simplicity, scalability and flexibility. Dell XC Web-scale Converged Appliances powered by Nutanix software are HyperConverged models that are extremely flexible and scalable.
