The best just got even better![1] The launch of an exciting new ‘supercharged’ solution from Dell EMC gives you a fantastic opportunity to increase your margins while also helping customers to boost their business efficiency.

We’re already #1 in the Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) marketplace and we’re also #1 in x86 Server Units[2]. Now, Dell EMC has combined its leading HCI offerings—including VxRail Appliances—with its next generation PowerEdge Server platform to launch a portfolio of HCI appliances built on best-in-class server platforms[3] that are uniquely designed and optimized for HCI workloads and software-defined storage.

Customers Demand Turnkey HCI for Simplicity, Agility and Scalability

If your customers are new to HCI, they have likely been considering it—along with 60% of their peers.[4] Agility is a key element to accelerating IT transformation and the vast majority of customers who have already adopted HCI (87%)[5] say that it has made their organization more agile.

HCI is by far the fastest growing infrastructure market segment at 48.5%[6] year-on-year—and IDC predicts HCI solutions revenue will reach $4B by 2019.[7]

With turnkey HCI solutions delivering even greater power and performance, customers get more for their money across a wider range of workloads. And customers can size their configuration to best match their requirements, paying only for what they need now and easily scaling later.

A ‘Supercharged’ Solution to Simplify and Accelerate IT Transformation

For server customers considering HCI or hybrid cloud—especially those due for a technology refresh – this is a great time to introduce not only Dell EMC HCI but also the benefits of VxRail built on the latest generation of an industry-leading Dell EMC PowerEdge server platform.

Built on Dell EMC 14th generation PowerEdge servers, our HCI solutions become even more powerful, more purposeful and more polished. It’s a winning combination that adds HCI benefits along with the power and flexibility of PowerEdge technology. In turn, VxRail delivers greater performance and reliability that’s being demanded by customers as HCI moves into the core data center and is increasingly being relied on to run a wider range of applications and workloads.

VxRail Is the Fastest and Easiest Way to Scale Capacity and Performance

This launch puts you in a great position to offer an HCI solution that’s truly unified, yet delivers a simplified experience that helps enable customers to solve their complex IT problems.

VxRail is one of the fastest growing HCI appliances worldwide, with rapid customer adoption driving more than 250% year-over-year growth[8]—a pace that is well over 5x the market growth rate.[9] 

 Powered by industry-leading VMware vSAN technology and managed through the familiar vCenter interface, VxRail can dramatically simplify customers’ IT operations while lowering overall capital and operational costs.

Don’t Just Sell a Server Refresh—Promote Powerful IT Transformation

Up-selling from a simple server refresh to VxRail drives increased value for your customer and greater margin for you. So start promoting Dell EMC VxRail Appliances as the standard for transforming VMware infrastructures—and sell an infrastructure transformation driven by HCI and next gen PowerEdge Servers on VxRail.
