The Dell EMC PowerEdge MX is a high performance, modular infrastructure designed to support a variety of data center workloads. Its modular infrastructure architecture is designed to adapt to future technologies and server disaggregation.
“While emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, IoT and software-defined storage and networking, offer competitive benefits, their workloads can be difficult to predict and pose new challenges for IT departments,” said Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, president and general manager, Dell EMC Server and Infrastructure Systems. “PowerEdge MX enables a modular approach to flexibly build and combine compute, storage and networking, so organizations can transform their IT in a way that optimizes resources and offers investment protection for future generations of technological advances.”
The PowerEdge MX ecosystem includes a newly designed chassis and precisely-sized resource blocks of servers and storage that connect to the infrastructure through a smart I/O fabric.
PowerEdge MX, with its kinetic infrastructure, is designed without a mid-plane, enabling support for multiple generations of technology releases — processor technologies, new storage types and new connectivity innovations — well into the future. The absence of a mid-plane enables direct compute to I/O module connections, allowing for future technology upgrades without disrupting customer operations and without a mid-plane upgrade. With this approach, PowerEdge MX is prepared to one day support fully disaggregated components to offer customers full composability.
