Dell EMC announces the expansion of its market-leading 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 IT and digital transformation efforts. The 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. 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%. Operational simplicity by delivering a turnkey, engineered system with lifecycle assurance that frees up IT staff to focus on innovation. The VxBlock 1000’s native support for mixed technologies offers improved simplicity for physical infrastructure, infrastructure administration and lifecycle management by reducing data center footprint (less cabinets, LAN and SAN switches, power supplies and system management hardware and software). In addition to offering fewer components to manage and support daily, the VxBlock 1000 can reduce overall system lifecycle administration time for multi-technologies by up to 75%.
