    • Here’s how VMware Cloud on Dell EMC works



      Reduce operational complexity

      VMware Cloud on Dell EMC delivers the VMware SDDC platform—including VMware vSphere®, VMware vSAN®, and VMware NSX® virtualization technologies—and integrates with Dell EMC VxRail hyperconverged infrastructure.

      Within the VMware Cloud Services portal, you can select the rack size and number of host instances, and configure network requirements to meet your exact specifications.

      The VxRail appliance architecture enables you to start small and grow, scaling capacity and performance easily and non-disruptively from 3 to 24 nodes.

      A production-ready Kubernetes platform to power modern applications, thanks to VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid

    • Develop, deploy, and host traditional and cloud-native applications anywhere on the same platform. Now you can accelerate cloud-native application development while also running traditional and virtualized applications.

      • Time saved with Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG) verification, now you can use open source-built Kubernetes from the Kubernetes community.
      • Increased flexibility, as TKG clusters are portable and can run on vSphere or in multi-cloud environments.
      • Simplified operations, thanks to a single hybrid cloud platform for modern and traditional applications.
