Dell EMC has launched new Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, offering improved management, security, performance and scalability.
Dell EMC did not reveal whether there is an increase in the price of the new PowerEdge servers, the number one servers in the enterprise IT market.
“Making PowerEdge server portfolio even stronger, we are enabling our customers to benefit from automation, control and security with more responsive and powerful systems,” Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, president, Server and Infrastructure Systems, Dell EMC, said.
Dell EMC is the number one server brand in both x86 server revenue and unit shipments during 2018. Server vendor revenues increased 12.6 percent to $23.6 billion during the fourth quarter of 2018.
Dell EMC has held or shared the No. 1 position in x86 servers market based on revenue for six consecutive quarters and for units shipped for over the past two years.
The new Dell EMC PowerEdge and Dell EMC OpenManage systems offer more control to manage server infrastructure and mitigate threats, backed by a new boost in performance and scalability.
FlexSelect Manage architecture offers customers new flexibility to choose among specific OpenManage Enterprise capabilities. Delivered first by an innovative power management plug-in, this reduces the number of consoles necessary to match users’ own specific needs and further streamline management efficiency.
New augmented reality on OpenManage Mobile offers customers a graphical representation of exactly where incidents occur within their environment to accurately identify target areas in their PowerEdge MX infrastructure and help speed resolution. Customers can reduce time to maintain server health by 28 percent, through fewer steps, compared to manually retrieving server logs.
PowerEdge servers can discover, monitor, configure and update supported Intel Optane DC persistent memory and Intel Optane DC SSDs with OpenManage agent-free management. This enables customers to save time by automating configuration of BIOS, drives and memory.
New security and encryption options added to the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) offer flexibility to allow communications among server components and outside connectivity.
Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with new 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors offer up to a 40 percent increase in performance for core business applications, helping to improve organizations’ customer experiences.
A single Dell EMC PowerEdge R940 server with 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors can host 69,500 simultaneous users within the SAP Sales & Distribution Standard Application Benchmark. This demonstrates up to 60 percent increase in supported users from a single server compared to the PowerEdge R930 server.
With new Intel Optane DC persistent memory, customers can accelerate in-memory databases, virtualization and data analytics workloads with up to 2.5 times more memory capacity for select PowerEdge Servers.
The PowerEdge R740xd enables up to 2.7 times the transactions per second with an Intel Optane DC persistent memory compared to NVMe drives in a virtualized Microsoft SQL Server 2019 preview environment with VMware ESXi.
