Dell EMC has expanded its converged infrastructure (CI) system with the addition of the next generation Dell EMC VxBlock System 1000. The new system breaks the physical boundaries of traditional CI and offers enterprises even greater simplicity and flexibility to help accelerate their IT and digital transformation efforts, said the firm.

Designed to support workloads of all types, the VxBlock 1000 includes a substantially broader choice of storage arrays, data protection and compute than previous-generation VxBlock Systems. This new system’s all-in-one, multiple-technology design expands upon CI’s promise by further simplifying IT infrastructure lifecycle management through extensive pre-validation, according to the company.

“When customers deploy CI, what they are really looking to do is invest in technology that removes data centre cost while, ultimately, improving outcomes,” said Jeff Boudreau, president, Dell EMC Storage Division. “Our role is to deliver CI innovation that has the right mix and capacity of IT resources and data services that evolving applications require, but with pooled resources, so the data centre is more efficient even as workload requirements change. We offer this with a focus on reducing administrative burden for IT teams under constant pressure to deliver more with less.”

The VxBlock 1000 builds on Dell EMC’s industry leadership in CI with a host of new capabilities. These help enterprises reap greater benefits than ever before from a wider breadth of technologies than previously supported. These are in addition to traditional CI advantages such as lower operating expenses and a five-year return on investment of up to 640 percent. Compared to previous generation Dell EMC VxBlock Systems, the VxBlock 1000 offers improved business agility, data centre efficiency and operational simplicity.

The Dell EMC VxBlock 1000 is available globally via Dell EMC and its channel partners.
