Dell, VMware and Emulex deliver the Power of Virtualization.
Through a strong, longstanding partnership, Dell, VMware and Emulex have collaborated to ensure the highest level of interoperability and performance within the data center. With the introduction of vSphere, VMware is providing a scalable, reliable data infrastructure that delivers the flexibility needed for today’s server virtualization environments and tomorrow’s next-generation cloud computing initiatives.
Emulex LightPulse 8Gb/s Fibre Channel HBAs and Mezzanine card for Dell standard and blade server platforms are key components of this infrastructure, providing efficient, high-performance storage area network (SAN) connectivity that is optimized for VMware vSphere. In fact, Emulex offerings deliver more than double the I/O per second (IOPS) performance in VMware vSphere environments over the previous release, enabling dramatically more virtual machines (VMs) per host.
And now Dell is offering its customers the ability to move to the next level of performance and consolidation based on 10Gb/s network convergence with iSCSI and FCoE on a single network. Emulex's OneConnect 10Gb/s Ethernet-based iSCSI and FCoE Universal Converged Network Adapters (UCNAs) have been selected by Dell for converged connectivity and are available across Dell PowerEdge™ rack and blade servers and for use with all Dell iSCSI and Fibre Channel storage solutions worldwide.
Organizations leveraging VMware vSphere, Dell servers, Emulex LightPulse adapters and OneConnect UCNAs can introduce into their data centers:
- Efficient asset utilization and management for greater capex and opex savings
- Effective delivery of application resources for optimum service performance
- Flexibility to select best in class solutions
VMware, Dell and Emulex offer an evolutionary, non-disruptive path to cloud computing for new and existing data centers, delivering proven business benefits every step of the way
