What is our primary use case?

My customers procure the HCI boxes from Dell. They deploy it in their data center and then we plan the solution and design or configure the network-based upon how many PLR's and how much storage we need for the Vscale setup.

So we configure it based on company to company. Some of the cases we have configured are portals. In some cases, we use API to provide detailed automated deployment. We have… more »

Pros and Cons

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give Dell EMC Vscale Architecture an eight. This…
