Transform your infrastructure with VxRack FLEX, a software-defined server-san that is optimized for a wide range of use cases including IaaS and PaaS. This turnkey HCI solution provides:
  • Flexibility with multi-hypervisor and bare metal options
  • High performance for applications and databases
  • Integrated network fabric designed to scale
Extreme performance and compelling economics

Extreme performance and compelling economics

Every node in the VxRack FLEX cluster is used to process I/O operations, making all I/O and throughput accessible to any application within the cluster. This massive I/O parallelism enables throughput and IOPS to scale in direct proportion to the number of nodes added, helping eliminate bottlenecks and improving cost/performance rates with growth. Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with all flash are 2.5x more dense than previous flash options, providing 50 percent more all-flash capacity for the same price or less while using a reduced amount of floor space.

Integrated network fabric

VxRack FLEX helps eliminate hyper-converged network restrictions by integrating top of rack and aggregation switches. This provides 25 GbE or 40GbE IP connectivity with the external network for low latency performance. The 25GbE network switches between the nodes eliminate bottlenecks that limit the scale of other hyper-converged infrastructure solutions and provide a path for future growth.
