Simplify all aspects of IT by seamlessly integrating compute, networking, storage, data protection and virtualization into one system

VxBlock System 1000

Greater Business Agility

Multi-technologies all in one system so you can apply the right mix of IT resources and data services that evolving applications require—whenever they need them. Mix multiple different types of storage arrays, Cisco UCS compute, Cisco Networking and integrated Dell EMC Data Protection for Converged Infrastructure options, into one fully integrated system

Improved Data Center Efficiency

Pooled resources to maximize system utilization and prevent stranded capacity to increase return on investment. With pooling of diverse resources in a single system, you can allocate and re-allocate pooled compute, storage and data protection resources to specific applications, as business and workload requirements change.

Better Operational Simplicity

A turnkey, engineered system with lifecycle assurance that frees up IT  staff allowing you to focus less on managing infrastructure and more on innovation. Converged infrastructure monitoring and assessment tools simplify infrastructure health management and component upgrades and patches to simplify system administration and lifecycle assurance.
