VxRail for the Edge

VxRail for the Edge

VxRail can now be deployed closer to the edge with VD-4000 series where there is space constrain, remote and harsh environments. It can be as small as a shoe box, vertically mounted and supports temperature resilient and shock resistance.

  • -5C to 55C operating temperature
  • Up to 4 discrete servers in a single 2U chassis
  • Short-depth 350mm from ear-to-rack
  • Front and Rear I/O options
  • Supports two single wide NVIDIA A2 or one double wide NVIDIA A30


Targeted for workloads like:

Retail – POS, IOT, Store of the future, AI Inferencing, etc.

Defense – Hardened for dusty, hot/cold operations. Limited and future MIL-STD and NEBS certification.

Manufacturing – Machine aggregation, industrial automation, OT/IT translation and more.
