Dell has unveiled its line of PowerEdge servers, which include customer-inspired features to optimize price performance for a range of Web, enterprise and hyperscale applications. It is comprised of five form-factors across blade, rack and tower servers.
According to Dell, its PowerEdge servers are designed to leverage modern storage technologies. The series includes the R720xd, R720 and R630 rack servers, the M630 blade server and the T630 tower server. All are built with the latest Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 product family.
The servers enabled users to accelerate data with NVMe Express Flash storage and deployment of the Dell Fluid Cache for SAN and SanDisk DAS Cache, support software defined storage and optimized data placement and zone large datasets by doubling RAID performance.
The line also has new levels of automation, which allows administrators to save time with zero-touch management features plus at-the-server management with the iDRAC Quick Sync platform. Administrators can also monitor their environments anytime with the OpenManage Mobile application.
“Our customers are inundated with new pressures and challenges that simply didn’t exist a few years ago. The pace of technology development and disruption is undoubtedly increasing, and many IT organizations are trying to find the right balance of rolling out technology in new and exciting ways without adding more complexity to their environments,” said Forrest Norrod, vice president and general manager, Dell Server Solutions. “By focusing on three underlying principles in our new PowerEdge server portfolio – accelerating application performance, empowering workloads in any environment, and simplification of systems management – customers can bridge between traditional and new IT models so they are always prepared to incorporate new innovations and stand up and optimize new applications within their data centers.”
