    Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors‎
    • Bring cloud capabilities to demanding workloads

      Dell Technologies Cloud Validated Designs bring best-of-breed Dell EMC infrastructure that is interoperable with VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) and delivered as pre-tested designs with deployment guidance. Organizations can now meet the varied demands of workloads with independent scaling of compute and storage by building their own hybrid cloud infrastructure with prescriptive building blocks.


      Data Storage

      Dell EMC PowerStore, PowerMax, Unity XT, and PowerFlex

      With Validated Designs for VCF using Dell EMC PowerStore™, PowerMax™, Unity™ XT, and PowerFlex™ , organizations can build their own hybrid cloud infrastructure, combining the best of software-defined and external storage architecture delivering a strong foundation for both traditional and cloud-native workloads. VCF supports Fiber Channel (FC) and Network File System (NFSv3) as principal storage, iSCSI/NFSv4 as supplemental storage for workload domains using PowerMax, PowerStore, and Unity XT arrays. Additionally, PowerFlex system provides a validated deployment option for workload domains as supplemental storage. These external storage options complement VCF deployments for applications with unique external storage-intensive requirements and challenges around performance and scalability.
