VxRail

VxRail is very well suited to large-scale homogeneous workloads, VDI being the prime example. Anywhere you have a large number of VMs that are doing the same thing, VxRail is a good fit. If you have workloads that are greatly varied, VxRail should not be your first choice.

Pros

VxRail

  • Stability, the platform has not had any major issues or minor issues since deployment.
  • Management, the VxRail platform has a single plane of glass for management.
  • Scaling, VxRail is easily scaled for more resources.

Cons

VxRail

  • Initial installation services leave a lot to be desired. We struggled to get the first units in service. Subsequent units were very easy to install though...
  • Dell/EMC has an A/B maintenance cycle for updates. Make sure ALL of your units are on the same cycle. It is difficult (but not quite impossible) to get them changes after installation
  • I would like to see a sub $100k offering for branch offices.

Alternatives Considered

VxRail

At the time we had a deployment of SimpliVity which did not measure up. We demo'd other products such as HyperFlex. We appreciated the ease of use of the VxRail and the overall value.

Return on Investment

VxRail

  • VxRail has made our VDI deployment easy to scale and (more importantly), made scaling the environment easy to justify to management.
  • When comparing to other similar solutions, the tight integration with Vmware code releases made VxRail much more stable. We have had much less downtime from the VxRail infrastructure than in our traditional infrastructure stacks.
