In 2010, the cloud was in its early stages of adoption. From then until now, more than a decade of advancements, where hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) appeared. A hyper-converged appliance is one that provides an alternative to traditional array-based storage. HCI configures network, compute, and storage capacity in a single integrated appliance. An integrated hypervisor virtualizes the hardware components and allows storage management. At econocom services we define ourselves as “smart cloud experts”, we accompany the client so that it is the companies that determine how to use their existing resources and thus maximize value and train staff, driving security and using best practices and lessons learned from the many projects completed. A smart cloud strategy has a number of benefits. However, the purpose is to provide environments with the strategy that best suits their needs, and this should not always indicate a complete move to the cloud. Instead of adopting a single platform to host all applications and services, it is better analyze each of them and decide which one will work best under each evolution strategy. Although this procedure leads to a final decision for the company, it requires a specialized team that continuously evaluates its needs and objectives; and that is where our role as integrators appears so that our client is continuously aligned with the best cloud practices.

Dell VxRail is the HCI system that embeds VMware vSAN and vSphere virtualization on Dell PowerEdge servers.

From econocom services, we can provide companies with a hybrid environment that allows them to have all the benefits of the cloud without completely giving up their existing local facilities to the extent that they need them. Local infrastructures can contribute to the predictability of costs and to applying their own economies of scale in the workloads that allow it, while the cloud can be the ideal place for cloud-native loads and elastic loads in which more is required. flexibility. Dell EMC dominates among branded HCI hardware systems, with nearly 34% market share. Dell VxRail is the HCI system that embeds VMware vSAN and vSphere virtualization on Dell PowerEdge servers. Additionally, VMware controls 42% of the HCI software market. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) has been one of the first popular cases when hyperconverged systems came to market and has increased during the pandemic. As VxRail Use Cases D (Dell EMC specified that the ā€œDā€ stands for durable) we can talk about the oil, gas, and transportation industry, where data is collected, analyzed, and tiered at the back end. In short, companies where real-time analysis is needed and the objective is to take the power of the data center, easy to manage and reducing the energy footprint. VxRail is present in the cloud with a subscription included with the VMware Cloud Foundation software ( VCF), via Dell Technologies Cloud Platform. In conclusion, Dell’s hyperconvergence solutions take a comprehensive approach to optimizing operational efficiency from a business standpoint. VxRail customers value its capabilities because it reduces operational time and effort that can be diverted to other areas of IT need. And with vSan you virtualize storage and network computing resources, speeding up problem resolution, improving scalability and making it easier to manage operating costs.
