IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Looking for feedback on Cisco HyperFlex vs. VxRail

System Administrator at Upper Allegheny Health System

I'm looking for feedback on Cisco hyperflex vs. VxRail. I'm running 2 active data centers and am evaluating which would be better. VxRail seems better but much more expensive.

What are the pros and cons of each? 

I'm also looking for a technical comparison of the two solutions.

Hi @Spencer Pinney

I know both brands well and their virtualization environments.

My preference is VxRail because everything is supported on ReadyNodes.The advanced functions of vSAN allow you to exploit the Hyper-convergence capabilities in a VxRail environment in a natural and simple way.

The management of hardware updates, its firmware and drivers directly by the manufacturer, with remote support and advice, allows you to keep the environment updated and its operation in optimal state.

VXRail is a turn-key solution, saying that it's still based on vSAN. From a cost perspective, I suggest you opt for vSAN Ready Node. You have options from Dell EMC, Cisco, HPE, Lenovo plus a few others. There are a few VMware HCI Kit options which you may opt for.

Look for vSAN Ready Nodes from CIsco or Dell and you will find it better!
