    • DTCP Configure-to-Order

      Configure-to-Order (CTO) gives you maximum flexibility and choice. You can customize your deployment as VxRail offers multiple compute, memory, storage, network and graphics options to cover a wide variety of applications and workloads.

      Flexible consumption options

      Purchase upfront or choose from a portfolio of flexible consumption-based and as-a-service solutions that are optimized for your workloads, while meeting your specific financial and technology objectives.

    • Deployment architecture overview

      For small environments customers can utilize a consolidated architecture, which starts with just 4 nodes. For this architecture, the management and user workload domains run together on a shared management domain.

      For larger environments, a customer can choose to deploy a standard architecture which starts at 8 nodes: 4 nodes in a dedicated management domain and a minimum of 4 nodes for the first virtual infrastructure compute workload domain. This is preferred when customers want to utilize dedicated resources and role-based access control to segment different sets of workloads.
