This document describes the testing practices used by engineering for the Dell Wyse Datacenter solutions. It contains detailed test analysis and achieved density limits for the Dell XC Web-Scale Converged Appliance solution.

The scope of this paper is to:

  • Explain the configuration and methodology for Dell Wyse Datacenter solution testing.
  • Provide test results and performance analysis for the solution platform configurations.
  • Provide density limits achieved for the solution platform configurations.

Primary objectives for this validation testing were:

  • Determine maximum Enhanced workload density per compute node for the XC730XD platform with 384 GB RAM and Broadwell E5-2660v4 CPUs.
