Behind the Bezel – The People Who Bring VxRail To Life

The power of personal connection matters now more than ever.

If there is anything that this new world has reinforced, it’s the value of personal connections. Humans are social creatures. It’s the little things.

While you may know VxRail as an amazing piece of infrastructure that makes life easier, we wanted to make a different connection for you…one that gives you a sense of the team working every day to make your life easier. So we created a video, featuring Dell Technologies team members:

It truly does capture the essence of the people behind VxRail – those who have contributed to VxRail’s success by keeping our customers top of mind – and we wanted to share some of these people, and their functions, with you, our customers. Over 30 team members from around the world are featured within the video. You will see the faces of:

  • the executive team that built this business from the ground up
  • product managers whose vision translates customer needs into product features
  • engineers who take this vision and make it real, ensuring quality along the way
  • product marketers who make it easy to understand how VxRail makes IT simple
  • technical marketers who describe and demonstrate VxRail’s capabilities
  • professional service professionals who ensure customer deployments go smoothly
  • VxSeals who help customers with nuanced use cases get up and running
  • The PowerEdge team who worked with us to make VxRail one of the first products built on our own servers, and continues to work to deliver HCI focused capabilities within the platform
  • manufacturing team members who build your VxRail just the way you ordered it
  • simulation lab staff who ensure quality by running tests and squashing bugs before they become an issue
  • support staff who answer the phones and solve problems around the clock

These are normal people doing extraordinary things.

And with that, I invite you to come take a look behind the VxRail bezel.

I hope you will see what I do. I see problem solvers. And I see the passion – and sense of humor – that I have come to know and love about these people. These are the people behind VxRail. And as a VxRail customer, you too are a part of this community and its story. Join us on social media where the story continues… #WeAreVxRail
