Is VxRail a hardware or software

VxRail HCI System Software consists of multiple, integrated software elements that extend VMware native capabilities to deliver a seamless, automated, operational experience, keeping the infrastructure in a pre-validated configuration to ensure workloads are consistently up and running.

What is the difference between VMware and VxRail

VxRail is a hyper-converged appliance based on VMware virtual SAN Software and is jointly engineered and built with VMware, for VMware, to enhance Vmware. VxRail software-defined architecture simplifies compute, storage, virtualization, and management.

VxRail in simple terms

VxRail is the first hyperconverged system fully integrated with VMware Cloud Foundation SDDC Manager. Host and deploy traditional and modern applications on a single infrastructure. Automate Kubernetes infrastructure deployment with VMware Cloud Foundation and Tanzu.

VxRail server or storage

What is VxRail? VxRail is Dell EMC's hyper-converged offering. Hyper-converged appliances allow a datacenter in a box approach, rather than buying servers, storage and hypervisor separately hyper-converged appliances bundle the components into one package.

What is the difference between VxRail and nutanix?

The biggest difference between Nutanix and VxRail is the storage replication. Nutanix has storage replication built into the product, but VxRail relies on EMC Recoverpoint. Nutanix is the clear favorite for a single pane of glass management and the lowest amount of solution complexity.

the purpose of VxRail

Dell EMC VxRail is a hyper-converged appliance. Like VSPEX™ BLUE, the Dell EMC product that it replaces, and other hyper-converged infrastructure systems, VxRail includes compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources in a single device.

benefit of VxRail

VxRail HCI System Software provides out-of-the-box automation and orchestration for deployment to day-to-day system-based operational tasks, which reduces the overall IT OpEx required to manage the stack.

Is VxRail a cloud

VxRail is the single HCI platform for every VMware workload and use case, including VDI, compute dense applications, and for hosting traditional and modern applications on a true hybrid cloud infrastructure.

Does VxRail come with vCenter

With the VxRail-supplied vCenter option, a Standard vCenter Server license is included.

What is a VxRail cluster

VxRail nodes are enclosed in a one-node, single server system, with each node having one, two or four multi-core processors and either all-flash solid-state disks (SSDs) or a hybrid mix of flash SSDs and hard disk drives (HDDs).

 I set up my VxRail

Configure VxRail Manager
In a browser, connect to the iDRAC of the VxRail node and launch the iDRAC virtual console.
In the ESXi DCUI, press F2 to log in to the VxRail node as root. ...
Select Troubleshooting Options > Enable ESXi Shell and press Enter to enable the shell.
Press Esc twice to return to the main DCUI screen.

What are the components of VxRail

VxRail features and components

The VxRail minimum cluster configuration consists of three nodes with a maximum of 64 nodes. VMware two-node models hold one to two nodes in a rack mount chassis. Provides a software stack for SDDC building blocks that include compute, network, storage, and management.

What is VxRail satellite node

VxRail satellite nodes are single nodes designed specifically for deployment in edge environments and managed through a centralized primary VxRail cluster running version 7.0.

What is VxRail dynamic node?

VxRail dynamic nodes are VxRail systems that are compute-only nodes used to form a vSphere cluster. Dynamic node clusters rely on external storage resources for its primary storage.

Can VxRail use external storage?

Your VxRail Appliance can be used with external storage with NFS datastores or VMFS over iSCSI datastores.

How does VxRail storage work?

Each VxRail node is a server with access to its drive bays as direct-attached storage. VxRail 4.0 nodes feature up to 2 processors and 16 drive bays per node. These drive bays can be configured as all-flash or hybrid storage, but all of the nodes in a VxRail cluster must be all hybrid or all flash.

What is the difference between VxRail and vSAN?

The biggest difference is that VxRail is a management software to control the HCI from a single pain of glass. This allows for the deployment and management of VMs and storage. VSAN is just a storage pooling software managed separately and is quite difficult if you're not familiar with the product.

What is VCF on VxRail?

VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) on VxRail™ is a Dell and VMware jointly engineered integrated solution. It contains features that simplify, streamline, and automate the operations of your entire Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC) from Day 0 through Day 2.

What is a VxRail manager?

VxRail Manager is a plug-in for the VMware vCenter Server that allows you to administer your VxRail clusters without leaving the HTML5 VMware vSphere Client. The VxRail Manager is installed in your VMware vCenter Server during the installation or upgrade of VxRail software.

How do I access my VxRail manager?

The first thing you'll see if you click on “Menu” at the top, there will be a “VxRail” option below “vRealize Operations”. By choosing that option, you'll see the VxRail system and this display is the equivalent of the “Dashboard” from the standalone VxRail Manager instance.
