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.
Superior performance with independent scaling of storage and compute.
Rapid deployment with pre-tested infrastructure and implementation guidance.
Reduced costs by leveraging existing Dell EMC investments for hybrid Cloud.
With Validated Designs for Dell EMC PowerStore, PowerMax, and Unity XT storage, organizations have more choice for VCF workloads with external storage-intensive requirements. VCF now supports both Fiber Channel (FC) and Network File System (NFS) storage classes as primary and ancillary storage for workload domains. This is ideal for applications with demanding throughput and capacity needs as storage can be scaled independently delivering greater performance.
Dell EMC PowerEdge MX and its onboard management, OpenManage Enterprise – Modular Edition, now supports interoperability with VCF based on DMTF Redfish standards. This enables organizations to rapidly provision and scale resources dynamically—composing and recomposing storage infrastructure on-the-fly, within a flexible, scalable Cloud infrastructure built on PowerEdge.
The combination of Cloud Foundation software on the Dell EMC PowerEdge MX7000 hardware that is described in this document has been validated in Dell EMC labs and certified by VMware.
This whitepaper provides an overview of the integration of VMware Cloud Foundation and Dell EMC PowerEdge MX7000 server with instructions on how to compose compute and storage resources in PowerEdge MX7000 to accelerate your cloud deployment.
Learn how to how to configure Dell EMC storage products to work with VMware Cloud Foundation and meet the most demanding workload needs using pre-tested infrastructure.
