Dell Technologies Unveils 2 New VxRail HCI Systems
Dell Technologies unveiled two new additions to its VxRail systems for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), offering its first-ever ruggedized system and for the first time introducing AMD EPYC processors into the mix.
Like other HCI systems, VxRail bundles compute, storage, and virtualization with end-to-end automated lifecycle management.
The company says the new ruggedized appliance -- VxRail D Series -- can help organizations extend the HCI system from the core to the harshest edge environments. "More data is being created at the edge, and more companies are moving their data management infrastructure closer to where data is created. But sometimes the edge is a 100-degree rooftop, not a temperature-controlled traditional data center," said exec Tom Burns. "With the new ruggedized VxRail systems, location and conditions don’t matter."
While the ruggedized appliance features 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors are now available in a new, efficient E Series platform, Dell said, also optimal for edge deployments as they couple a high-efficiency power supply in a compact 1U system to especially suit customers that need high-performance computing power in a single socket platform for edge environments.
The company also announced the general availability of NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPUs and Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory options, along with an update of VxRail HCI System Software.
The D an E series appliances become generally available tomorrow, June 23.
