    • Realize the full potential of your VMware environments with powerful and flexible data storage platforms from the storage market leader.

      Organizations know the importance of data. Having your data available when needed is critical. Dell EMC storage is engineered to bring extreme performance and agility for your VMware environments.

    • Modernize All Your Data Driven VMware Applications

      • VCF Integration
      • Simplify storage with vVols
      • Automated data placement
      • Lower data footprint with global, always-on modern data reduction
      • Bring NVMe and Storage Class Memory to VMware
    • Bring modern storage to VMware workloads

    • In this new world of modern applications and containers, businesses rely on IT to rapidly deliver services in the datacenter, the cloud, or the edge. This requires an agile infrastructure that delivers a consistent operating model. Dell Technologies and VMware deliver on this requirement, allowing seamless transition from today’s classic application-oriented virtualized workloads to tomorrow’s distributed cloud-powered solutions all while ensuring data availability and protection.

    • VMware vSphere
      Dell EMC storage delivers deep integration with the base vSphere storage primitives. These integrations improve the performance of vSphere through offloading common storage creation operations to Dell EMC storage platforms.

      VMware Virtual Volumes (vVols)
      Dell EMC storage supports vVols through its VASA providers where the storage arrays advertise their capabilities to vSphere. This allows the offloading of VM level functionality to the array and improves both VM and storage performance and efficiency.

      VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF)
      Dell EMC storage platforms support VCF deployments to deliver needed storage functionality in Virtual Infrastructure workload domains. Workload domains can take advantage of unique storage values such as modern data reduction techniques.

      vRealize Suite
      Dell EMC storage platforms utilize VMware vRealize Suite to manage and monitor VMware storage. With VMware technologies like vRO & vROPs together with Dell EMC VMware Plugins like VSI and ESI customers can monitor and manage their Dell EMC storage from within their VMware environments.
