XC Xpress delivers hyperconverged infrastructure custom tailored to meet the needs and budgets of small to midsize businesses, backed by Microsoft Azure Backup & Recovery and Dell PowerEdge server technology.
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.
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.
