Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) built on a variety of PowerEdge servers with VMware vSAN for software-defined storage (SDS).
Reduce project risk and improve storage efficiency with VMware vSAN software defined storage for hyper-converged infrastructure. 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.*
Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes are pre-configured and validated building blocks that can reduce deployment risks, improve storage efficiency, and let you quickly and easily scale storage as needed.
Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes are built on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers that have been pre-configured, tested and certified to run VMware vSAN. Each Ready Node includes just the right amount of CPU, memory, network I/O controllers, HDDs and SSDs that are suited for VMware vSAN.* Dell EMC offers unique vSAN chassis; each model boasts an identity module that self-identifies the chassis as a vSAN Ready Node to streamline deployment, updates, etc.
Dell EMC engineering tests and validates vSAN Ready Nodes with VMware configurations for accelerating vSAN deployment. Dell EMC and VMware have collaborated on vSAN for many years, putting the technology through thousands of hours of testing.* VMware has validated vSAN Ready Nodes on PowerEdge MX for VMware Cloud Foundation™, which offers the fastest way for customers to build an integrated hybrid cloud by delivering a comprehensive set of software-defined services for compute, storage, networking, security, and cloud management to run enterprise applications in hybrid cloud environments.
Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes improve storage efficiency while helping reduce capital expense(CAPEX) with server ‑ side economics, affordable flash and grow ‑ as ‑ you ‑ go scaling.* Reducing the time and effort it takes to deploy and manage compute and storage infrastructure can also reduce operational expense (OPEX).
Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes 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.* For the best experience, leverage Dell EMC ProDeploy Plus Services which offers the industry’s most robust service.
Bridge the physical and virtual gap by automating and consolidating key PowerEdge server management tasks in the VMware vCenter® console with OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter (OMIVV), a native VMware vCenter plug-in that dramatically reduces complexity, speeds deployment and minimizes risk in IT operations.
