NEW DELHI: Dell EMC has expanded its leading converged systems portfolio by integrating its Dell EMC PowerEdge servers into Dell EMC VxRail Appliances hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) in India.
The company says that the VxRail Appliances on PowerEdge servers allow Dell EMC to address more use cases in India and to help modernize data centers with comprehensive service and support that provide a path to assisting business growth and investment protection for organizations of all sizes.
Hyper-converged infrastructure is rapidly becoming the new normal for modern data centers. While, hyper-converged infrastructure is being marginally preferred for perimeter workloads, which are non-core for the business. It is also being used extensively where organizations have high scale-out requirements. With scalability and simplicity as the key parameters for customers in India, HCI appliances are a perfect fit for businesses looking to move from a build yourself to a buy model.
Dell EMC VxRail Appliances, powered by PowerEdge servers, will be made available in India , starting this month, with the expanded portfolio to be available more broadly across the Asia-Pacific region this October.
“Modernizing IT infrastructure and reducing infrastructure footprint are the key IT priorities across organizations.” said Matt Oostveen, Chief Technology Officer, Dell EMC Converged Platforms and Solutions Division, Asia Pacific & Japan. “Technologies such as hyper-converged infrastructure are gaining traction to address both optimization demands and removing infrastructure management complexities.”
According to the latest IDC Worldwide Quarterly Converged Systems Tracker 1, the worldwide converged systems market revenue increased 4.6% year over year to $2.67 billion during the first quarter of 2017. Hyper-converged systems continued to be the fastest growing segment by far, growing 64.7% year over year globally. Dell EMC continues to be the undisputed leader in the overall converged systems market with 28.9% market share and is the fastest growing HCI vendor, more than doubling sales year-over-year for Q1 2017, according to the analyst firm.
