EVO:RAIL is an x86 server-based appliance developed by VMware for combining compute, networking and storage resources into a hyper-converged infrastructure system. VMware designed EVO:RAIL to make it easier for small and mid-sized enterprises to quickly deploy an all-in-one virtualization solution.
VMware revealed EVO:RAIL during its VMworld conference in August 2014, and announced that EVO:RAIL can be purchased through a list of qualified EVO:RAIL channel partners that includes Dell, EMC, HP, Fujitsu and SuperMicro, among others.
EVO:RAIL and EVO:RACK Hyper-Converged Solutions
VMware also announced it would be delivering a second hyper-converged system following EVO:RAIL called EVO:RACK, which includes VMware vCloud Suite, VSAN, NSX and EVO:RACK management software, serving as a full-scale software-defined data center (SDDC) in a box. The EVO:RACK system is expected to be available in 2015.
VMware's EVO:RAIL and EVO:RACK compete in the emerging hyper-converged technologies market with established providers like Nutanix, SimpliVity and Scale Computing.
