February 28 , 2017: Dell EMC today announced that its turnkey hybrid cloud platform, Dell EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud (EHC), will be available for the first time on Dell EMC VxRail Appliances, the company’s hyper-converged infrastructure offering that has seen substantial market adoption since its launch a year ago.
As organizations increasingly move towards hybrid cloud as an enabler for IT transformation and adopt hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) for mission critical workloads, Dell EMC EHC on VxRail Appliances allows organizations to scale out as their demand for hybrid cloud services expand.
The Dell EMC VxRail Appliance family of fully integrated, preconfigured and pre-tested HCI appliances offers the industry’s only HCI appliances powered by VMware vSAN™ and jointly engineered with VMware. Since VxRail Appliances launched a year ago today, Dell EMC has sold more than 8,000 VxRail nodes—exceeding 65 petabytes of storage and 100,000 cores—to more than 1,000 customers in dozens of industries across 78 countries.
According to IDC research, revenue from Dell Technologies’ HCI portfolio, including VxRail Appliances, VxRack Systems and XC Series, outgrew the total HCI market—one of the fastest growing IT markets—by more than two-fold and represents 28 percent of hyper-converged systems sold in the third quarter of 2016.1
Dell EMC EHC on VxRail helps meet rising customer demands for an HCI-based turnkey hybrid cloud solution. Industry analyst and research firm 451 Research notes in a new report that three out of four hyper-converged deployments are in the core data center, and hybrid cloud is the next frontier for HCI.
