Exponential-e to Deliver Dell EMC VxRail Appliances for Private Cloud Deployments
Exponential-e is the first UK service providers to offer Dell EMC VxRail Appliances for private cloud deployments.
"Offering Dell EMC VxRail Appliances will enable Exponential-e to continue to increase the speed of its deployments," says Ian Heath, UK&I Director – Alliances, for Dell EMC. "By coupling Dell EMC's platform with its own unique Layer 2 Software-defined WAN services, Exponential-e will be able to offer even more seamless migrations to the cloud."
Dell EMC VxRail will also support wider integration with Exponential-e's rich array of cloud and managed services. An important example is the Exponential-e's strategic partnership with Morpheus, which leverages VxRail for their innovative cloud and centralised automation services.

As Jonathan Bridges explains, 'Dell EMC VxRail allows simple deployment of private cloud solutions whether within a customer's location, international site or Exponential-e's own data centres.' He continues: 'When integrated to our centralised cloud management platform, VxRail also gives our customers access to a rich range of value services, including business continuity, object storage and wider public cloud capabilities'.
The market for private and hybrid, as well as public, cloud continues to grow apace; the market for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) grew at 69% over 2017, with Dell EMC noted as the overall HCI solution sales leader*. Service providers therefore need to offer customer-tailored solutions that span all delivery options.
'With the increased take-up in Platform-as-a-Service and cloud-native development, we need to be able to offer our customers the ability to start their cloud journey with a packaged service option,'says Jonathan Bridges.
The use of Dell EMC VxRail and Dell EMC engineered solutions empowers Exponential-e to extend its portfolio and cater to this demand, while still allowing core integration to its centralised cloud automation platform. This lets Exponential-e offer (in Jonathan Bridges' words) 'one bill, one service model and one support model across the customer landscape.' He proudly calls it, "Power of One".
