Dell EMC has announced the expansion of its converged infrastructure (CI) system with the addition of the next generation Dell EMC VxBlock System 1000. The new system breaks the physical boundaries of traditional CI and offers enterprises even greater simplicity and flexibility to help accelerate their Information Technology (IT) and digital transformation efforts.
The latest addition of the next generation Dell EMC VxBlock System 1000 designed to further simplifies data center operations and offers new options of storage and data protection from Dell EMC and compute and networking from Cisco–in one pre-integrated, turnkey system.
The cutting-edge VxBlock 1000 is designed to support workloads of all types and includes a substantially broader choice of world-class storage arrays, data protection and compute than previous-generation VxBlock Systems. This new system’s all-in-one, multiple-technology design expands upon CI’s promise by further simplifying IT infrastructure lifecycle management through extensive pre-validation.
This enables IT staff to be freed from time-consuming administrative tasks, so they can focus on higher-value, business innovation projects.
President, Dell EMC Storage Division, Jeff Boudreau, said: “Our role is to deliver CI innovation that has the right mix and capacity of IT resources and data services that evolving applications require, but with pooled resources, so the data centre is more efficient even as workload requirements change. We offer this with a focus on reducing the administrative burden for IT teams under constant pressure to deliver more with less.” He stated further that “When customers deploy CI, what they are really looking to do is invest in technology that removes data centre cost while, ultimately, improving outcomes.”
The VxBlock 1000 builds on Dell EMC’s industry leadership in CI with a host of new capabilities. These help enterprises reap greater benefits than ever before from a wider breadth of technologies than previously supported. These are in addition to traditional CI advantages such as lower operating expenses and a five-year return on investment of up to 640 percent.
Compared to the previous generation Dell EMC VxBlock Systems, the VxBlock 1000 offers improved business agility, data center efficiency and operational simplicity.
