Dell VxRail Architecture Overview

PDF

Requirements

Host and storage connectivity

The following are the recommended options for secondary storage to work with VxRail.

  • PowerStore
  • Power Max (2000/8000, 2500/8500)
  • Dell Unity XT
  • PowerFlex

Third-party storage arrays are supported, provided the third-party vendor arrays support the VMware ESXi version that matches the VxRail cluster and you follow the best practice from both VMware and the storage vendor. Both standard VMware vSAN-based VxRail clusters, and dynamic node clusters can use secondary storage.

Connectivity for external storage arrays can run over both FC and TCP/IP based storage protocols. For best practices about storage network considerations and requirements, see the Dell Technologies Host Connectivity Guide.
