While there are significant potential benefits when an organization migrates to a hyperconverged system, true cost and real life experience are critical to the decision-making
process. In order to effectively establish a case for going to one platform vs. another,
strong fact-based analytical methodologies and approaches are needed.
In this paper the case for Hyper-Converged Appliances, and in particular the Dell EMC
VxRail Appliance, is made from both cost and measurable effort perspectives. Strict
reliance on measurables was used in lieu of anecdotal observations or customer quoted
benefits in order to provide realistic and repeatable analysis.
