      vSAN Ready Nodes Overview

      A simple and flexible way to build your hybrid cloud with VMware vSphere® and vSAN is with Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes which allow you to build your hybrid cloud as unique as your workloads.

      Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes are pre-configured, tested and certified to run VMware vSAN. Each Ready Node includes just the right amount of CPU, memory, network I/O controllers, HDDs and SSDs. Dell EMC also offers premiere vSAN Ready Node configurations; each model boasts an Identity Module that self-identifies the server as a vSAN Ready Node upon boot-up to streamline deployment, updates, and more.

      • Over 180 vSAN Ready Node configurations available.1
      • 130% faster deployment with OMIVV.2
      • When using vLCM and OMIVV complete hypervisor and firmware updates to an 8-node PowerEdge cluster in under 4 minutes vs. 3.5 hours manually.3
      • Industry most complete deployment offering, enabling up to 66% faster deployment of Dell EMC Ready Nodes.4
      • Dell EMC ProSupport offers a single contact — one call — for both hardware and software with over 1,800 VMware certified Dell EMC support professionals.
    • Scale quickly and manage simply with Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes

    • Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes, built on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, enable easy deployment with factory installed, pre-configured and pre-tested configurations which can add up to a solution that scales quickly to meet growing needs.2 With over 180 configurations available - spanning all-flash, hybrid rack, and kinetic infrastructure models - modernize your infrastructure from the core to the edge to the cloud with maximum flexibility.

      PowerEdge servers, the bedrock of the modern data center, feature 150 custom-requirements for HCI built-in. PowerEdge servers offer the latest in server innovations, scalability, and security, along with elegant control for vSAN Ready Nodes via OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter® (OMIVV).

      Manage your software and hardware empowering IT with automation and consistency across hardware and software lifecycle management with OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter® (OMIVV) and vSphere Lifecycle Manager (vLCM). OMIVV is the Dell EMC PowerEdge server administration tool that manages directly within your VMware vCenter environment.  OMIVV provides:

      • Physical and virtual views in one place
      • Firmware updates managed from within vCenter
      • Expedited server deployment

      vLCM is the next generation solution for vSphere 7 and vSAN 7 lifecycle operations for software and firmware. Dell EMC vSAN Ready Node customers can engage their lifecycle management based on a desired state model defined by them, helping to manage at their own pace.

      Using vLCM and OMIVV, complete hypervisor and firmware updates on an eight-node PowerEdge cluster in under 4 minutes vs. 3.5 hours manually.3

      As a core building block of the software-defined data center (SDDC), VMware vSAN™ powers leading HCI solutions with a high-performance architecture native to vSphere. vSAN is a radically simple software-defined storage (SDS) solution that delivers flash-optimized, scalable and secure shared storage for virtualized workloads - helping lower total cost-of-ownership (TCO) by up to 50%5 compared to competing hybrid hyperconverged solutions.

    •  

      Reduce project risk and improve storage efficiency. vSAN delivers high-performance, flash-optimized hyperconverged storage for any application – at a fraction of the cost of traditional, purpose-built storage and other less efficient HCI solutions.2

    •  

      Bridge the physical and virtual gap by automating and consolidating key PowerEdge server management tasks in the vCenter console with OMIVV, a vCenter plug-in from Dell EMC that manages up to 15 vCenters and 2,000 servers and up to 15 parallel cluster-aware updates.
