Dell Technologies expands its server portfolio, with an additional 13 next-generation Dell PowerEdge servers, designed to accelerate performance for computing across core data centers, large-scale public clouds and edge locations.
Next-generation rack, tower and multi-node PowerEdge servers, with 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, include Dell software and engineering advancements, such as a new Smart Flow design, to improve energy and cost efficiency, the company reports. Expanded Dell APEX capabilities will help organizations take an as-a-service approach, allowing for more effective IT operations, according to Dell.
“Customers come to Dell for easily managed yet sophisticated and efficient servers with advanced capabilities to power their business-critical workloads,” says Jeff Boudreau, president and general manager, Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell Technologies.
New Dell PowerEdge servers are designed to accommodate a range of workloads from artificial intelligence and analytics to large-scale databases. The expanded portfolio announced in November 2022, including the PowerEdge XE family of servers with NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs and the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software suite for a full stack, production AI platform builds on advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Servers for Cloud Service Providers
The introduction of Dell PowerEdge HS5610 and HS5620 servers delivers optimized solutions for cloud service providers managing large-scale, multi-vendor data centers. Available in 1U and 2U form factors, these new, two-socket servers include cold aisle serviceable configurations and are available with Dell Open Server Manager, an OpenBMC based systems management solution.
Next-generation PowerEdge servers provide improved performance, including the Dell PowerEdge R760, which delivers greater artificial intelligence inferencing on 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with Intel Deep Learning Boost and Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions. PowerEdge systems may be ordered with NVIDIA Bluefield-2 data processing units to provide offload, acceleration and workload isolation capabilities for efficiency for private, hybrid and multicloud deployments.
Enhancements to Dell Monitoring Software
Dell CloudIQ—Dell software combines proactive monitoring, machine learning and predictive analytics while offering a view of servers wherever they reside. Updates include advancements to server performance forecasting, select maintenance operations and new virtualization visualization.
Dell ProDeploy services—The Dell ProDeploy Factory Configuration service delivers PowerEdge servers ready to install and preconfigured with the customer’s preferred operating system, hypervisor software and settings for RAID, BIOS and iDRAC. The Dell ProDeploy Rack Integration service delivers and installs production-ready racked and networked PowerEdge servers.
Dell iDRAC9—As customers seek increased server automation and intelligence, Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) makes Dell systems easier to deploy and diagnose, equipped with updated features such as Certificate Expiry Notice, Telemetry for Dell Consoles and GPU monitoring.
“With improvements in genomic sequencing technology and new methods in the lab driving data growth, data flows will continue to expand in the future,” says Dr. Pete Clapham, informatics support group leader, Wellcome Sanger Institute. “Dell PowerEdge servers are well-designed, have built-in security, and deliver the performance that allows us to accelerate scientific discovery and bring innovation to the world faster.”
