Infrastructure Appliance runs on a hardware foundation based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family, the Intel® Solid State Drive Data Center S3710 Series, and the Intel® Ethernet Controller X540 family. This cost-effective, innovative solution delivers high performance and reliability while helping lower costs.
As businesses define their strategies moving toward the Software Define...d Data Center (SDDC) of the future, they must have a foundation to build on that they can trust for reliability, performance, and security. To meet those needs, Intel and VMware have continued their nearly 10-year history of joint engineering to collaborate extensively during the development of EVO:RAIL*.
Intel engineers have developed a balanced hardware architecture for EVO:RAIL, based on components that have been matched and tested together to provide optimal results. This work helps ensure that the VMware software foundation, which includes Virtual SAN* and vSphere* as its key modules, is well suited to meet increasingly complex customer demands. This brief examines the three main Intel products that are part of EVO:RAIL, including key features and benefits.
