When it comes to hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) and enterprise cloud environments, no single approach is the ideal solution for every situation. So Dell EMC offers a broad HCI portfolio that enables us address a wide range of use cases and give customers a choice of solutions that best meets their unique needs.

The tenet of customer choice is behind our commitment to develop the XC Family and make it the ideal platform for customers who choose Nutanix software. Our position as the leading server vendor helps us to innovate on the hardware platform that is so critical for successful Nutanix deployments. We also develop technologies that simplify and streamline common workflows performed throughout the XC system’s lifecycle.

It starts with factory installation of the Nutanix software stack and hypervisor of choice, and pre-configuration of system settings to maximize the performance of the Nutanix software. Other examples include:
  • Software modules that deliver fast and seamless deployment
  • 1-cick BIOS, firmware and software updates directly in Prism
  • Rapid factory restore and bare metal recovery
  • Rich in-band hardware monitoring and management capabilities
  • Components developed specifically for HCI to simplify workflow orchestration
At Dell EMC, we also realize that security and protection of intellectual property are extremely important to our customers. That’s why we’ve adopted a holistic approach to protect our supply chain and deliver hyper-converged solutions with advanced security features. They include a silicon root of trust to authenticate booting and firmware updates, configuration and firmware lockdown, secure erase, and rapid OS recovery from a trusted image stored on a hidden boot device.

As as one of Nutanix's first OEM partners, Dell EMC is fully committed to our ongoing relationship and continued development of our platform for Nutanix. We invite you to visit us in the Platinum Pavilion at .NEXT EMEA 2018 to learn more about the XC Family and our solutions that are engineered to meet the requirements of all virtualized workloads. Our technical experts will be available to discuss your specific use case and to answer your questions about virtualization, hyper-converged infrastructure and the XC Family.
