The Dell EMC VxRack SDDC is the only solution on the market today engineered as a complete turnkey system providing the easiest and fastest way to stand up a VMware based Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) environment. It features fully integrated hardware and software in a hyper-converged rack system built with industry leading Dell EMC PowerEdge servers and VMware Cloud Foundation software. The hyper-converged VxRack SDDC reduces the cost of acquiring, deploying, and operating a VMware Cloud Foundation infrastructure, while at the same time accelerating the performance, flexibility, and automation required to make IT departments more agile.
VxRack System SDDC
Hyper-converged turnkey solution powered by VMware Cloud Foundation
Software-defined infrastructure: Provides workload flexibility and support for both traditional and modern applications. VxRack SDDC delivers a turnkey experience with a single pre-engineered and manufactured system that includes full lifecycle assurance. Flexible options for industry standard hyper-converged Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with choice of all-flash or hybrid storage for agile customer use cases. VxRack SDDC is powered by VMware Cloud Foundation, an integrated cloud platform that delivers enterprise-ready services for virtualized compute (VMware vSphere), storage (VMware vSAN), networking and security (VMware NSX), along with unique lifecycle management automation (VMware SDDC Manager).
Integrated network fabric: Designed with industry best practices for hardware and virtual networking, the VxRack SDDC eliminates challenges in building and deploying networking requirements and provides scale with superior performance. Best-in-class top-of-rack and interconnect switches provide scalable connectivity and the external network for superior performance, while Cloud Foundation delivers the network virtualization capabilities that allow end users to automate operations, enhance security, and improve application availability.
Management: Cloud Foundation introduces SDDC Manager, a new, innovative systems management solution designed to deliver a radically simplified user experience. SDDC Manager provides a single-point-of-management for the system and automates the entire lifecycle of the SDDC stack, from bring-up, to configuration, to infrastructure provisioning, to updates and upgrades. SDDC Manager complements well-known VMware management tools such as vCenter Server, vRealize Operations, and vRealize Automation that continue to be available for advanced administration tasks and integration with third-party software tools.
Lower operating costs: Eliminate complex IT silos, large tech refreshes, and costly data migrations. Fully integrated rack-scale network architected for extreme scalability. Complete lifecycle assurance and validated interoperability of components with Dell EMC Release Certification Matrix (RCM).
Single support model: Providing global 24x7x365 support for the entire system, including all hardware and software.
