Dell Technologies Unveils Groundbreaking Servers and Solutions for Modern Data Centers

Dell EMC PowerEdge acce짯le짯ra짯tes per짯for짯mance with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sors to deli짯ver powerful infra짯struc짯tu짯re solu짯ti짯ons for mul짯ti-cloud and emer짯ging workloads

Dell Tech짯no짯lo짯gies (NYSEDELL) is intro짯du짯cing a port짯fo짯lio of all-new Dell EMC PowerEdge ser짯vers, new Rea짯dy Solu짯ti짯ons for High-Per짯for짯mance Com짯pu짯ting (HPC), and sim짯pli짯fied manage짯ment inte짯gra짯ti짯ons with lea짯ding soft짯ware and public cloud pro짯vi짯ders, all desi짯gned to address the demands of the modern data center.

Five all-new PowerEdge ser짯vers, added to the world셲 best짯sel짯ling ser짯ver port짯fo짯lio,3 have been desi짯gned from the ground-up to address the com짯plex and varied demands of tra짯di짯tio짯nal, emer짯ging and mul짯ti-cloud workloads. Engi짯nee짯red to unlock the full poten짯ti짯al of 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, the new ser짯vers offer cus짯to짯mers impro짯ved per짯for짯mance and an easier to mana짯ge and secu짯re plat짯form. The new PowerEdge ser짯vers have set world records inclu짯ding 280% grea짯ter sin짯gle-socket vir짯tua짯li짯zed data짯ba짯se per짯for짯mance1 and the industry셲 top dual-socket per짯for짯mance result in the SAP Sales and Dis짯tri짯bu짯ti짯on (SAP SD) bench짯mark.2

The modern data cen짯ter must embrace tra짯di짯tio짯nal and mul짯ti-cloud approa짯ches, hel짯ping orga짯niza짯ti짯ons beco짯me more agi짯le, deli짯ver new insights from data, and ulti짯m짯ate짯ly achie짯ve results fas짯ter, said Ash짯ley Gorakh짯pur짯wal짯la, pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Ser짯ver and Infra짯struc짯tu짯re Sys짯tems, Dell Tech짯no짯lo짯gies. 쏷he all-new Dell EMC PowerEdge ser짯vers maxi짯mi짯ze the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sor per짯for짯mance to address the짯se needs. We also con짯ti짯nue to deli짯ver enhance짯ments to Open짯Ma짯na짯ge, giving cus짯to짯mers the power to work more seam짯less짯ly with lea짯ding soft짯ware and public cloud ven짯dors. Our rese짯arch and deve짯lo짯p짯ment invest짯ments are desi짯gned to offer the industry셲 best plat짯forms for AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors with the per짯for짯mance, secu짯ri짯ty and fle짯xi짯bi짯li짯ty cus짯to짯mers have come to expect from PowerEdge. 

Dell Tech짯no짯lo짯gies inno짯va짯ti짯on offers all new Dell EMC PowerEdge ser짯vers desi짯gned to opti짯mi짯ze the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors

New PowerEdge ser짯vers, desi짯gned to opti짯mi짯ze the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sor capa짯bi짯li짯ties, are engi짯nee짯red to offer the com짯pu짯te per짯for짯mance, mana짯gea짯bi짯li짯ty and inte짯gra짯ted secu짯ri짯ty requi짯red for mul짯ti-cloud envi짯ron짯ments and a wide ran짯ge of new and emer짯ging workloads.

For exam짯p짯le, the new ser짯vers enable impro짯ved Dell EMC vSAN Rea짯dy Node deploy짯ments with an up to 51% increase in input/output per second (IOPS) over pre짯vious gene짯ra짯ti짯on AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sor-based PowerEdge sys짯tems.4

The unpar짯al짯le짯led per짯for짯mance lea짯der짯ship of the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sor fami짯ly opens up a world of pos짯si짯bi짯li짯ties for Dell Tech짯no짯lo짯gies cus짯to짯mers by addres짯sing cri짯ti짯cal workloads in the cloud, high-per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting and the enter짯pri짯se, said For짯rest Nor짯rod, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger of the Dat짯a짯cen짯ter and Embedded Solu짯ti짯ons Busi짯ness Group, AMD. AMD and Dell Tech짯no짯lo짯gies have a long-stan짯ding histo짯ry of pro짯vi짯ding cus짯to짯mers with high per짯for짯mance data solu짯ti짯ons. The breakth짯rough design of the new Dell EMC PowerEdge sys짯tems con짯ti짯nues that col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on and takes full advan짯ta짯ge of the AMD Infi짯ni짯ty Archi짯tec짯tu짯re and lea짯ding secu짯ri짯ty fea짯tures of AMD EPYC to deli짯ver excep짯tio짯nal per짯for짯mance and TCO to our customers.

The result of Dell EMC engi짯nee짯ring and clo짯se col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on with AMD helps ensu짯re cus짯to짯mers can bene짯fit from all fea짯tures of the new AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, unli짯ke 쐂rop-in approa짯ches that may limit pro짯ces짯sor capabilities.

The new ser짯vers offer fas짯ter com짯pu짯te and memo짯ry respon짯se and bene짯fit from built-in hard짯ware and firm짯ware secu짯ri짯ty. Com짯pared to the pre짯vious gene짯ra짯ti짯on, the ser짯vers new짯ly desi짯gned mother짯board also offers cus짯to짯mers bet짯ter coo짯ling and opti짯mal signal inte짯gri짯ty. Addi짯tio짯nal짯ly, the inno짯va짯ti짯ve PowerEdge designs bene짯fit cus짯to짯mers today and in the future with sup짯port for PCIe 4.0 inter짯con짯nec짯tion for next gene짯ra짯ti짯on sto짯rage, acce짯le짯ra짯tors and advan짯ced networking.

New ser짯ver inno짯va짯tions and capa짯bi짯li짯ties include:

  • Workload-Opti짯mi짯zed Sys짯tem Designs  Built from the pro짯ces짯sor archi짯tec짯tu짯re up to sup짯port all aspects of the new 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, the new PowerEdge designs offer sub짯stan짯ti짯al per짯for짯mance impro짯ve짯ments for a varie짯ty of workloads, inclu짯ding HPC, data짯ba짯ses and VDI.
