The EVO:RAIL hyper-converged infrastructure appliance is an all-in-one solution for all your virtualized workloads.
Meet accelerating business demands by simplifying IT infrastructure design, management and maintenance. Double your infrastructure in minutes when you need more capacity.
Consolidating compute, networking and storage resources into a single appliance ensures consistent performance and allows simplified, scalable virtualized infrastructure.
EVO:RAIL orchestrates the day to day operations from creation and protection of VMs, to non-disruptive updates and maintenance for no application downtime.
Increase compute, networking and storage resources by powering up a new appliance to join an existing EVO:RAIL cluster. EVO:RAIL automatically distributes the configuration to seamlessly add new appliances with zero additional configuration.
Administrators can manage the EVO:RAIL cluster, appliance and VM lifecycle from the same unified HTML 5 User Interface. Advanced users can continue to leverage the well-know vSphere web client for precise tuning.
Built on the proven technology of VMware vSphere and Virtual SAN, EVO:RAIL delivers high performance with consistent and fast response times.
Virtual SAN is embedded into the vSphere kernel and thus provides the shortest I/O data path, optimizing performance with the least impact on CPU.
VM performance is improved and storage latencies are minimized by caching and accelerating read/write disk I/O traffic, leveraging enterprise-grade server-side flash.
EVO:RAIL is designed to provide hardware and software resiliency and security for all workloads in an easy to consume appliance.
Four independent ESXi hosts allow applications to non-disruptively move to another host during planned maintenance or failure. Only the dual, redundant power supplies are shared in the appliance. Each host has dual 10 GbE network connections for redundant network connectivity.
Administrators can secure their Virtual Machines in a single click.
EVO:RAIL combines advanced automation of the VM lifecycle (deployment, configuration, and management) in a very dense form factor (4 server nodes in a 2U chassis) to maximize cost efficiencies.
EVO:RAIL is ready to be configured with networking details for rapid deployment, eliminating the need to piece a solution together, then validate and certify hardware configurations, loading software, and running scripts. A consistent experience eliminates the variation and configuration drift associated with ordering traditional systems.
Reduce capital expenditures through a server platform with server side storage that is optimized for the EVO:RAIL software stack, so you can pay as you grow. Reduce IT operating costs with faster deployments, automatic scaling, and one click non-disruptive updates.
VMware EVO:RAIL is delivered through VMware Qualified EVO:RAIL Partners (QEPs) as a complete hyper-converged infrastructure appliance solution including hardware, software and support.
VMware EVO:RAIL can be purchased either as an all-in-one solution or through the VMware EVO:RAIL vSphere Loyalty Program.
VMware EVO:RAIL can be purchased either through VMware Qualified EVO:RAIL Partners (QEP’s) or through selected VMware EVO:RAIL channel partners as a complete hyper-converged infrastructure appliance solution.
If you are an existing vSphere customer, you can apply your vSphere licenses towards the purchase of EVO:RAIL appliances. This lets you preserve your existing investment in VMware software while reducing the overall cost of an EVO:RAIL appliance purchase.
