    • In this new world of modern applications and containers, businesses rely on IT to rapidly deliver services in the datacenter, the cloud, or the edge. This requires an agile infrastructure that delivers a consistent operating model. Dell Technologies and VMware deliver on this requirement, allowing seamless transition from today’s classic application-oriented virtualized workloads to tomorrow’s distributed cloud-powered solutions all while ensuring data availability and protection.

    • VMware vSphere
      Dell Storage platforms improve the performance of vSphere by offloading common storage operations. These are via the free Dell plug-ins that enable VMware administrators to manage hosts, datastores, and data copies, reducing operational complexity.

      VMware Virtual Volumes (vVols)
      Dell storage supports vVols through its VASA providers where the storage arrays advertise their capabilities to vSphere. This allows the offloading of VM level functionality to the array and improves both VM and storage performance and efficiency.

      VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF)
      Dell storage platforms support VCF deployments to deliver needed storage functionality in Virtual Infrastructure workload domains. Workload domains can take advantage of unique storage values such as modern data reduction techniques.

      vRealize Suite
      Dell storage platforms utilize VMware vRealize Suite to manage and monitor VMware storage. With VMware technologies like vRO & vROPs together with VMware Plugins like VSI and ESI customers can monitor and manage their Dell storage from within their VMware environments.

    • PowerStore

      Built with NVMe and Storage Class Memory, offering scale up and scale out architecture with AppsON to run VMware virtualized apps directly on the array, PowerStore introduces a new paradigm in enterprise storage.
