Says Web-scale Converged Appliances integrate enterprise-class storage, compute and hypervisor resources into a single solution
Dell has launched its second wave of Dell XC Series of Web-scale Converged Appliances.
These highly scalable integrated solutions help streamline the datacenter and now offer more than 50 percent storage capacity and up to twice the rack density to support customers deploying a wide range of workloads, including virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI), private cloud and big data announced the press release.
The release further stated that the new Dell XC Series Version 2.0 appliances offer customers hyper-converged solutions based for the first time on Dell PowerEdge 13th generation server technology combined with Nutanix software and Dell global services and support. The appliances integrate enterprise-class storage, compute and hypervisor resources into a single solution, and further expand Dell’s broad software-defined storage (SDS) portfolio.
“We’ve seen strong customer interest in our debut Dell XC Series appliances, and our newest offerings substantially raise the bar,” said Alan Atkinson, vice president and general manager, Dell Storage. “The new web-scale converged appliances add greater configuration flexibility and pack more performance and capacity into our 13th generation servers, making them even more compelling for customers looking to adopt a newer, integrated systems model for delivering IT to their organizations.”
The new Dell XC630 introduces a compact 1U form factor to the XC Series portfolio and supports more virtual desktop users in half the rack space compared to Dell’s debut XC720xd, making it an even more attractive option for customers with limited rack space or those deploying VDI and other virtualized workloads.
The Dell XC Series of Web-scale Converged Appliances, Version 2.0, will be available in North America, South America, Europe, Middle-East and Africa on March 3 and elsewhere worldwide later this March.
