ThinEdge is an integrated Dell and VMware SD-WAN hyperconverged platform

Organizations need to combine data from the edge with machine learning, analytics, and artificial intelligence to become more agile and capture new business opportunities. To do this, they must deploy new IT services quickly. This calls for efficient, flexible, and resilient network connectivity across the edges of the data center, branch offices and the cloud.

This solution architecture white paper describes a hyperconverged platform, ThinEdge, that includes Dell EMC VxRail, Dell EMC Virtual Edge Platform 4600 (VEP4600), and VMware SD-WAN™ by VeloCloud®. ThinEdge is a pre-integrated, validated, engineered solution for edge and remote office/branch office (ROBO) environments. This architecture is extremely useful to transfer massive files across the network—for working from home, healthcare, financial services, construction and engineering, and other major business operations. The ThinEdge solution reduces costs, scales easily, is simple to manage end-to-end, and provides secure and reliable SD-WAN connections to remote sites.
