VxRail Not Leaving Intel, But Dell Wants To Give Customers ‘Choice’

Dell and VMware’s VxRail systems have traditionally leverage Intel processors for its VxRail systems.

Shannon Champion, director of HCI and CI product marketing at Dell Technologies, said the new addition of AMD EPYC processors to VxRail isn’t a move against Intel processors, but a strategy around offering customers more choices.

“From an AMD perspective on E-Series, it’s really about additional choice and flexibility. From a channel partner perceptive, customers are starting to make their mind up in terms of leaning toward one direction or another. We’ve been and continue to be really in lock-step with Intel,” she said. “Being able to provide the AMD EPYC processors for the E-Series in a very small footprint with some of the performance capabilities from AMD -- and the ability to offer a wide range of those storage configurations like NVMe, all-flash or hybrid – allows you to have it at the edge in a small form factor but use it for things like database, VDI and unstructured data workloads.”
