VxRail Scalability

The scalability is pretty good. Currently, we are looking at expanding. We're down to 50 terabytes and we plan on bringing on a lot more storage. We're speaking to Dell EMC. We need to buy another add-on and we can expand, it won't take on a lot more space. With a few more drives it will be huge. It's pretty scalable; it's going to grow with no problem.

VxRail is easy to scale, but the number of nodes is limited. This is not the same with other solutions like Nutanix. VxRail has a limit for a certain number of nodes within the cluster and if you need more than that then you have to create another cluster. It is an issue but at the same time, it is not an issue. It is kind of just a configuration difference. View full review »

The scalability of the solution is very impressive, actually. You can scale a very large environment with ease. It's not trouble at all. On the converse of that, it doesn't work so well for very small environments. This is mostly for if you've got, for example, four hosts already. It's not for small environments. You need to really have 100 to 200 VMs to really take advantage of it. As a reseller, I'll typically check in with clients after a few months to see how things are going and to see if they need a new node or anything of that nature. Typically, they are looking to scale a bit more. View full review »

It's a lot more scalable than it was. With the combination of the stack, I just recently went to training two weeks ago. For somebody who had been certified in VMware, then sort of stopped using it, I'm back as a proponent of using the solutions across the hybrid cloud and within the data center consolidation and hybrid cloud solutions.

The scalability is excellent. The scalability is built into the whole design of the solution and you don't have to worry about replacing the whole entire environment. You can scale up or scale down depending on what your requirements are for that time in your business. View full review »

The scalability of the solution is great. If an organization needs to expand out the service they can do so quite easily. View full review »

The scalability is great. You can scale within the system easily. You just put in more disks and more memory. Even if you stop with one CPU, you can add a second one or you can go and just add another when customers come and say, "Okay we need more." We just buy another node and put it in. Within, let's say, 20 minutes, the node is within the cluster. It's quick and easy. For us, we used to earn our money with installing and updating, etc., however, the customer's doing it all by himself now, even if he gets a new server or cluster, it's one each click. Since we do not use the VxRail internally and we are just sending it to our customers, we have a technical team of about 10 people that are working in the service. Within this, there are three people who are working with VxRail. View full review »

The scalability is great. Thankfully, our data needs are in the 200 gigabyte range when we go out onsite, so we're not overloading it. We just have the single rail that has four hosts on it. View full review »

Before we had VxRail, we had scalability issues. After installing VxRail, we did not experience issues. View full review »

The scalability was good but we didn't make use of it. It's scalable from an architecture point of view but we never took advantage of that functionality. View full review »

We haven't really gone beyond what we started off with: three nodes. However, we're looking at other clients where we will be doing upwards of four to 15 nodes. View full review »

Senior Consultant at SoftEd Systems
I can start with two systems for a robot, or I can start with a bigger system that has twelve or more nodes, and I can add the customer's workload. We had a big project in Germany that started with one cluster. It expanded over a year and a half to a fourteen cluster system. View full review »

It is scalable. When you are buying it, you have to buy a minimum of three nodes. After that, if you want to add more nodes, you can buy can buy them. You can also add-on additional compute and storage. View full review »
