Dell Technologies VxRail and VxRack SDDC advancements offer greater performance and adoption of next generation technologies for multi-clouds in VMware environments
Dell Technologies is launching new hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) advancements to further simplify customer IT transformations with more powerful systems. New Dell EMC VxRail Appliances and VxRack SDDC Systems further extend Dell EMC’s HCI global systems sales leadership with adoption of advanced technologies and the latest innovations from Dell EMC and VMware. The combined technologies can accelerate customers’ abilities to transform to modern, multi-cloud environments.
“As HCI systems are increasingly being used for core data center applications, customers are adopting VxRail and VxRack SDDC as the foundation for deploying clouds of all types,” said Rajesh Ramnani, Regional Director, CPSD, Dell EMC India. “These technologies, co-developed by Dell EMC and VMware, offer a simple and clearly defined path to private, hybrid and multi-clouds to help our customers transform their IT infrastructure to free up valuable staff time while enabling IT to be the enabler for faster, nimbler businesses.”
Results of the ESG 2018 IT Transformation Maturity Study, sponsored by Dell EMC and released this month, demonstrate that:
- An overwhelming majority of transformed companies–98%–use either converged infrastructure (CI) or HCI, and 86% report using both
- Transformed companies report running an average of more than 35% of their applications on CI/HCI, quantifying their operational expenditure savings at 25% on average
- Organizations running cloud-like IaaS are operating on-premises infrastructure more than two and a half times as cost-effectively as public cloud alternatives
According to IDC, global HCI system sales surpassed $3.7 billion in 2017 vendor revenue, up 64.3% from 2016, as the fastest growing segment of the overall converged systems market. Dell EMC led all vendors in global HCI systems sales in 2017, with a 27.1% revenue share while growing 145% year over year at a rate more than 2.25 times faster than the overall industry.1 Meanwhile, IDC predicts the HCI solutions market will reach $10.3 billion by 2022 and India would be a USD 63M market for HCI by 2020. The market is expected to grow at a GAGR of 43%. The converged market will be USD 180M with a modest CAGR of 9%. Dell EMC VxRail Appliances and Dell EMC VxRack SDDC Systems updates are available globally now.
