      FEATURED WHITEPAPER

      Dell EMC VxFlex for Microsoft SQL Server 2019

      Read this whitepaper to learn about the benefits of hosting SQL Server 2019 on Dell EMC VxFlex systems.

    • Transformation without tradeoffs

      • VxFlex integrated systems create a flexible, open and heterogeneous foundation for meeting the demanding and evolving business needs of the modern data center. VxFlex creates a server-based SAN by combining virtualization software, known as VxFlex OS, with Dell EMC PowerEdge servers to deliver extreme performance, resiliency and capacity on demand.

        VxFlex appliance and integrated rack exhibit balanced and predictable behavior, allows for varying performance and capacity ratios, decouples the scalability of compute and storage resources, and can scale enormously and non-disruptively. 

        This architecture enables you to scale from just a few nodes to over a thousand nodes. In addition, VxFlex provides millions of IOPS at consistent sub-millisecond response times, enterprise-grade data protection and multitenant capabilities.

      •  

        Agility: Quickly deploy VxFlex integrated systems for 6x faster time-to-value. Avoid application and operational silos and rapidly respond to changing business requirements.

      •  

        Flexibility: VxFlex allows you to design and implement software-defined data centers based on your applications, budget, and growth demands. Add units incrementally and adjust compute and storage resources linearly or independently based on your business needs.

      •  

        Simplicity: VxFlex Manager is the management and operations software that simplifies and unifies the management of VxFlex integrated systems making it easier to implement, consume and manage resources.
