Support virtualised workloads. Fast.


The XC Series combines compute, storage and virtualisation resources in 1U and 2U appliances that can be configured to-order for specific use cases. With a choice of industry-leading hypervisors, application and virtualisation teams can quickly fulfill new service requests for all virtualised workloads, including: - Enterprise business applications - Databases - Hybrid or private cloud projects - DevOps - Virtual desktop infrastructure Multiple applications in the datacentre can run on the same scalable and cost-effective platform, enabling IT organisations to shift from supporting operations to delivering innovations that add business value. 

Conquer storage complexity

Managing storage in virtualised environments with traditional architectures based on separate server, storage and networking systems can be tedious and complex. A storage area network (SAN) also can add latency if data has to be retrieved from storage when an operation is performed on the server. With the XC Series, frequently used data is automatically stored on SSDs in the same node as the application VMs that need to access it. IT administrators no longer have to manage LUNs, volumes or RAID groups. Instead, they can manage their virtual environments at a VM level using policies based on the needs of each workload.

Scale with ease and empower your team

XC Series solutions eliminate the need for overprovisioning and capital expenditures based on anticipated capacity and performance requirements. System performance and/or capacity can be easily expanded one node at a time with zero downtime, offering customers linear and predictable scale-out expansion and pay-as-you-grow flexibility. A fault-tolerant architecture and self-healing capabilities provide system reliability and help ensure data integrity. A cluster of XC Series appliances can be deployed in 30 minutes and is easy to manage without specialised resources. An intuitive HTML5-based interface simplifies management operations with deployment and provisioning services, VM and storage management, search, content sensitive help, comprehensive analytics and 1-click hypervisor and software updates. Enterprise-class data protection and management features are designed to enhance administrator productivity and include tiering, snapshot-based replication, thin provisioning, shadow clones, deduplication and compression.
