Today’s IT experts are being confronted with two issues – an increase in data volumes and variety.

Whilst data can open the door to a multitude of possibilities for your business, the complexity can be a huge challenge.

The growth in the number of data formats and locations being used (edge-to-cloud) is becoming too much to be managed properly with existing on-site infrastructures with the result being a mish-mash of architectures that lead to discrete and detached environments that are used and managed independently.

Business benefits.

On-board applications capability.
PowerStore is a highly adaptable platform that provides the flexibility to host specialised workloads directly on the appliance and to modernise your IT infrastructure without disruption. PowerStore can provide both storage and on-board compute capabilities to offer analytics consumption flexibility in the face of a rapidly changing storage infrastructure. By eliminating the latency and overhead of the network layer, customers can take advantage of better application performance for data-intensive next-gen analytics simplifying their environment. PowerStore’s superior integration with vSphere results in streamlined management where storage resources plug directly into the visualisation layer.
Flexible scaling.
PowerStore combines flexible scaling with ease of management that greatly complements analytics applications’ scale-up and scale-out deployment models. Using the built-in hypervisor brings the scale for data storage when the workload requires it.

 
Unbeatable performance.
PowerStore changes the way analytics database teams design and build analytic solutions. It is designed from the ground up to utilise the latest in storage and interface technologies to maximise application performance.
Easy consolidation.
PowerStore is engineered with the ability to support storage in multiple formats bringing flexibility to a variety of applications, ranging from physical and virtual LUNs to containers to traditional file. It provides a single architecture for block, file, and VMware vVols leveraging the latest technologies to support a wide variety of traditional and modern workloads.
 
Redefining application productivity.
Using intelligent data placement, PowerStore improves system performance through the balanced provisioning of new appliance storage and the automated balancing of cluster resources. It determines the optimum provisioning of new volumes and identifies the changes required to maintain efficiency. Users can prioritise business-critical application volumes.
Proven security.

Dell EMC VxRail

Dell EMC VxRail.

Hyperconverged infrastructure.

Benefit from a hyperconverged infrastructure tailored to your needs with Dell EMC’s VxRail.

Find the right solution for your business here.

Heterogeneous IT environments. There are often several manufacturers of servers, operating systems, storage, virtualisation and network components.

Growing demands on your IT. The acceptance and proliferation of new technologies such as cloud, mobility, virtualisation and Big Data is growing. This is forcing enterprise IT to provision services much more quickly and flexibly, which is either impossible or involves a great deal of work when using traditional, heterogeneous environments.

If the IT department is unable to meet the core demands of the business, this can lead to even greater problems. These days, in-house IT is increasingly seen as a service provider, but the services have to be affordable, flexible and quick to deploy.

Business benefits.

With a VxRail solution, you can leverage the benefits of a converged infrastructure. 
These include:

 

Increased agility.

Simplified processes.

Lower risks.
Tailored performance.
VxRail is available in several configurations meaning you can start small and scale up to a cluster with up to 64 nodes. Advanced clustering features such as the scaling of individual nodes and the combination of models in a cluster enable a pay-as-you-grow approach, i.e. When you are ready to scale out, adding an appliance will only take a matter of minutes.
 
Cloud? No problem! 
VxRail comes with Dell EMC CloudArray to include more than 20 public clouds, such as VMware’s vCloud Air, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Virtustream helping you to unlimited scaling of storage capacities.
Full integration with simple management.
VxRail is the only fully integrated, optimised and tested VMware HCI appliance on the market. It is based on the latest generation VMware vSphere and Virtual SAN software and can be seamlessly integrated into standard management solutions for VMware environments such as vCenter Server and vCenter Log Insight. And best of all, you can continue to use the tools, reports and expertise you already use in your VMware environment.
