Solutions Guide: Business Ready Configurations for Data Center Virtualization
Business Ready Configurations for Virtualization are pre-configured, easy to order, bundled solutions that include Dell PowerEdge™ blade servers, Dell EqualLogic™ SAN, and VMware vSphere™. This white paper provides a detailed reference architecture for the Business Ready Configurations.
Based on extensive engineering work in architectural design and certification, customers can quickly and confidently deploy these engineering proven architectures into production environments, thereby helping to eliminate much of the costly and time consuming trial and error often encountered during complex infrastructure design and implementation. The solution is optimally configured to run virtualized workloads and is designed to provide redundancy with no single point-of-failure, as well as scalability and manageability. It includes the network architectures, storage configurations, and best practices necessary for deploying and configuring the solution. The solution will help customers achieve the full benefits of VMware Infrastructure, Dell PowerEdge blade servers, and Dell EqualLogic PS Series arrays.
