Dell Releases a New Portfolio of PowerEdge Servers

In early September, Dell unveiled its most advanced portfolio of PowerEdge servers to date with the 13th generation. The portfolio features customer-inspired engineering that is constructed to simply management and enhance workloads. Designed to address and optimize the ever-changing spectrum of application workload requirements and industry trends such as cloud computing, big data, mobility, and software- defined networking (SDN), the new Dell PowerEdge portfolio features new state-of-the-art advancements including increased storage, processing, and memory technology coupled with systems management capabilities.

The first of the new next generation PowerEdge servers includes the PowerEdge R730xd, R730, and R630 rack servers, the T630 tower server, and the M630 blade server. Each of these PowerEdge servers run on the latest Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processor family and include Dell’s portfolio of enterprise infrastructure offerings, software, and service. As many challenges and pressures have been forced upon IT organizations that did not even exist a few years ago, it is important to find the perfect balance of implementing new technology without increasing complexity within any data center. To achieve this goal, the Dell PowerEdge portfolio focuses on three underlying principles: simplification of systems management, accelerating application performance, and empowering workloads in any environment.

With increased operational efficiency and flexibility at any scale for the most demanding environments and applications, the new generation of PowerEdge servers are built to leverage modern storage technologies that are future-proof. New in-server storage technology provides industry-leading capabilities including accelerating the most important data, zone large datasets, and support software defined storage and optimized data placement.  Dell’s new PowerEdge servers offer flexible platforms and innovative architectures that empower customers to modify systems to meet their exclusive workload and application requirements including unified communications, business computing, virtualization, collaboration, and technical computing. 

Dell will be sharing much more on the new PowerEdge portfolio at Dell World 2014 November 4-6 in Austin, Texas.
