Dell validated System for Virtualization


At VMworld 2016, Dell has ushered in the next phase of the multi-billion dollar converged systems market with the introduction of the Dell Validated System for Virtualization, the industry’s most flexible converged system to-date. Dell also announced new client virtualization solutions with enhanced performance for demanding power users and VMware has selected Dell Financial Services as its preferred financing partner.

A growing number of organizations are attracted to the benefits of converged systems, which combine compute, storage and networking components for simply deployed and managed systems. However, the majority have not yet realized their goals because they demand a higher degree of flexibility and simplicity that moves beyond rigid hardware-defined converged offerings. Dell’s service-defined infrastructure approach uniquely addresses these challenges and the need for improved infrastructure agility and simplified systems management.

The new Dell Validated System for Virtualization, allowing customers of all sizes to accelerate their journey towards converged infrastructure.


Key features:

  • Enabled through robust automation and extensive testing and validation, it is arguably the most flexible converged system in the industry.
  • The system incorporates a wide range of form-factors, technology choices and deployment options, right-sized to fit each customers’ needs.
  • A fully validated system can be configured, quoted and ordered in minutes, while automated lifecycle management tools allow customers to easily deploy, scale, and update the system.
  • A fully customizable, modular, self-service hybrid VMware cloud, as a proof of concept for customers moving beyond virtualization to cloud.
  • The Dell Validated System for Virtualization, with the addition of the VMware vRealize Suite, allows efficient delivery of services and enables an organization to gain greater control of IT resources.
