VMware vSAN ReadyNode™ certified servers are globally available
IBM Cloud is excited to announce the global availability of VMware vSAN ReadyNode™ certified servers. ReadyNode certified servers have been pre-configured and tested and provide the most flexible server options to build Hyper-Converged Infrastructure based on VMware vSAN. Each ReadyNode certified server is optimally configured for vSAN with the required amount of CPU, memory, network, I/O controllers, and storage (SSDs, HDDs or flash devices). IBM Cloud offers the perfect choice for VMware enterprises looking for a complete, pre-defined, trusted vSAN environment to run their critical VMware workloads.
Previously, customers spent added time configuring their own cloud servers. Now, with vSAN Ready Nodes, customers can implement entire pre-configured servers in just a few clicks. Virtual SAN Ready Nodes are ideal as hyper-converged building blocks for large data center environments with strong automation and a need to customize hardware and software configurations.
VMware vSAN ReadyNode servers are a turnkey solution for accelerating vSAN compliant workloads
- Complete server configurations built with VMware HCL qualified components: Complete with the size, type, quantity of CPU, memory, network, I/O controller, and storage best suited to run a specific vSAN workload.
