PowerEdge VRTX - Shared Infrastructure

Intel Xeon
Poweredge Vrtx

You won’t believe your eyes

Get ready to be amazed by how powerful simplicity can be. Dell PowerEdge VRTX integrates servers, storage, networking and management into a single office-optimized chassis the size of a tower server (or 5U when rack mounted). The first IT solution designed from the ground up specifically for office environments, PowerEdge VRTX brings greater simplicity, efficiency and versatility to your IT environment.

In addition to its space-saving size that can be installed virtually anywhere, PowerEdge VRTX is easy to deploy, use and manage. Its modular, flexible design delivers extensive capacity and performance scalability, making it a future-proof investment that grows with you through time.
Redefine IT Operations

PowerEdge VRTX brings order to chaos in your office IT environment, delivering greater efficiency that improves your bottom line. VRTX innovative capabilities include:
  • Office-optimized dimensions, acoustics and security — VRTX’s compact chassis can be installed virtually anywhere, allowing you to reclaim valuable floor space or rack space. With quiet acoustics, it operates non-disruptively, even in quiet office environments. A locking front bezel prevents unauthorized access and keeps physical assets secure.
  • Choice of server node quantity to drive the compute power you need at each site — VRTX supports two-socket M520 and M620 server nodes as well as the 4-socket M820, all of which can be mixed-and-matched inside the chassis. You can standardize on VRTX as your platform of choice for all sites, yet tailor configurations to the specific needs at each site.
  • Virtualization-readiness — VRTX has been pre-tested and certified to run with virtualization solutions including Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware. We also created reference architectures and sizing guides to speed configuration and deployment.
  • Huge internal shared storage capacity to harness today’s explosion of data, and to provide room for future growth.
  • Simplified, intuitive systems management that helps to save time, save money and reduce potential for error.
  • Choice of network options — PowerEdge VRTX features integrated networking ports and industry-standard PCI slots, instead of complex and expensive I/O modules. This flexibility eases the burden on small business budgets. You can also configure VRTX with high performance 10GbE switches if you need to transfer data at enterprise-class speeds.
  • High availability and serviceability — with features including ECC memory, hot plug hard drives, fans and power supplies, redundant storage controllers and fail-safe hypervisors, as well as capabilities like live migration and high availability cluster failover inside the chassis. We designed VRTX to keep you up and running.
  • Future-proof investment value — not only does VRTX offer extensive performance scalability and storage capacity to grow with you into the future, it is also designed today to support future 13th generation PowerEdge server nodes.
