Powering Dell XC – Erasure Coding and VM Flash Mode

This is the short overview of the software powering the Dell XC hardware. I wanted to talk about some technical features since it was a Tech Field Day so I landed on Erasure Coding EC-X and VM Flash Mode. One thing I also like to stress around going into HCI is management. The fact that you are splitting up a traditional storage array into multiple individual parts should not be lost on people. Of all the things the Acropolis software delivers, it’s management is what will allow Nutanix to compete with the cloud providers of the world. In the land of high availability us as humans are the most dangerous thing to happen to hardware, not the components themselves.
