Hyper convergent infrastructure – the modern data centre.

 

#Dell@Bechtle                       #Modern data centre                      #HCI

 

Free yourself from the complexity and costs of a traditional IT data centre with a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) from Dell Technologies HCI offers computing, storage, network and data protection solutions in a single, completely integrated system. This not only reduces the amount of admin, but also enables much higher data availability than a traditional IT environment. Take your IT infrastructure to the next level.

Traditional infrastructures are making way for HCI.

Scalable 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® processors – Performance made flexible.

The new Intel® CPU platform offers solutions based on scalable 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® processors that deliver a balanced architecture with built-in acceleration and advanced security capabilities, designed through decades of innovation for the most demanding workload requirements. The new processors are optimised for many workload types and performance levels, all with the consistent, open Intel architecture you know and trust.

This enables configurations that are tailored and optimised for cloud, enterprise, HPC, network, security, and IoT workloads with 8 to 40 powerful cores and a wide range of frequency, feature, and power levels—the possibilities are endless.

The scalable 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® processors continue to lead the way in AI technology. They deliver more power compared with the previous hardware generation and more options when using AI software such as TensorFlow, PyTorch and OpenVINO.

3rd Generation Intel Xeon scalable processors have been engineered for the demands of cloud workloads and to support a wide range of XaaS environments.

The platform is powered by Intel SGX, which protects data and application code while in use, and thus enables new ways to collaborate on shared data without compromising privacy. SGX optimises the confidentiality and integrity of customer data and code in the multi-tenant public cloud.

Intel® Crypto Acceleration increases the performance of encryption intensive workloads including SSL web serving, 5G infrastructure, and VPN/firewalls, while reducing the performance impact of pervasive encryption.

Persistent Intel® Optane™ DC storage.
  • RAM support with higher capacities at affordable prices.
Intel® Optane™ DC SSDs.
  • Enhanced performance compared to standard SSDs thanks to balanced read/write speeds
VMware vSAN.

VMware vSAN is a crucial component of an HCI environment and, with VxRail, forms the foundation of a perfect out-of-the-box solution. When used in combination with vSphere, this storage virtualisation software provides centralised management of computing and storage components. It consolidates all data storage devices into a single storage pool which all hosts in the vSAN cluster use together. vSAN makes external shared storage superfluous and simplifies the storage configuration and provisioning of virtual machines.

As a core component, vSAN makes VxRail more efficient.
Transform and modernise your IT infrastructure with Bechtle and Dell Technologies – start your performance test now!

Dell Technologies and Bechtle offer you a concept, 100% tailored to your needs.

Trust in our many years of experience, our tried and tested methods and IT experts.

 

Transform and modernise your IT infrastructure and take the performance test!

How does the performance test work?

We start with a validated performance test, which gives you a crystal clear overview of your IT infrastructure and serves as a basis for all optional subsequent development stages.

 

  • Remote operation, therefore flexible in terms of time and location
  • No on-site installation necessary
  • Guaranteed encrypted data transmission and no forwarding of data
  • No access to confidential data and therefore no intervention in business-critical applications
  • Live tracking of your system analysis on your personal dashboard
From performance measurement to assessment.

The performance test is only the first step. making it all the more important not to interpret the results one-dimensionally, but in the context of other important factors.

That is why we take a holistic approach to assessment and look at the results of the test in their entirety while also taking external factors into account: When was the existing hardware purchased and what is its depreciation period? What challenges does the customer face, how can precise modernisation contribute to achieving individual goals?
