VMware® EVO:RAIL™ is the first hyper-converged infrastructure appliance powered 100% by VMware’s compute, networking, storage, and management software. EVO:RAIL Deployment, Configuration, and Management streamlines initial setup and ongoing operations including updates with zero downtime and automatic scale-out. EVO:RAIL is fully deployed in minutes, once racked, cabled and powered on.
To ensure the correct functioning of EVO:RAIL and an optimal end-to-end user experience, understanding the recommendations and requirements in this User Guide is essential. Availability of resources and workload is critical for any environment, but even more so in a hyper-converged environment as compute, networking, storage, and management are provided on the same platform.
