We use VxRail to support our VMware Horizon VDI environment. This supports all users in all lines of business throughout the company. We replaced a much older traditional infrastructure and knew going in that we wanted HCI. Because we were going to use VMware Horizon, the decision to go with VxRail was a natural fit.
  • VxRail gives us a standard, predictable, unit of scale and purchase.
  • Infrastructure maintenance and upgrades are much easier than on a traditional infrastructure stack.
  • Performance tuning is much easier and more straightforward than on a traditional infrastructure stack
  • 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.
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.

VxRail is in use at the college for all types of workloads. It has handled MSSQL, IIS, Exchange, File Storage, and other workloads. The VxRail is used across the whole organization for all major/minor services and workloads. The VxRail was put into place to remove an aging traditional server/storage deployment. The issues resolved included latency, storage and compute capacity and expandability.
  • 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.
  • The software release cycle is slow compared to general release of software. Particularly with VMware based releases.
For general workloads the VxRail is a beast. For our deployments, we did not see any scenarios where it was not appropriate.
