Dell Introduces Its Most Advanced Server Portfolio to Address Broadest Range of Business Computing Needs

Dell also has introduced direct-attached storage offerings specifically developed for the new PowerEdge servers. The new Dell Storage MD1400 and MD1420 offer affordable storage expansion, double the bandwidth and improved performance compared to the previous generation, data security with self-encrypting-drives (SEDs), and seamless data management between the server and storage enclosure.

Industry-leading enhancements make systems management easier than ever

Sixty percent of IT managers polled in the Future Ready IT survey say they are prioritizing reductions in operational complexity and simplification of data center management with IT resource allocation. Dell’s updated systems management capabilities featured in its new PowerEdge servers are engineered to address these customer priorities, with higher levels of automation and by enabling administrators to monitor and remediate data center situations from any hand-held device anywhere in the world. The OpenManage systems management portfolio also provides:

  • Enhanced at-the-server management, and from anywhere: Dell introduces iDRAC Quick Sync, using Near Field Communication (NFC), an industry first, to enable its customers’ mobile workforce by requiring up to 84 percent less time for collecting inventory. For customers managing at-the-box, this new capability transmits server health information and basic server setup via a hand-held smart device running OpenManage Mobile, simply by tapping it at the server. OpenManage Mobile also enables administrators to monitor and manage their environments anytime, anywhere with their mobile device.
  • New levels of automation: Administrators can save time and gain efficiency with zero-touch management automation features, such as storing, accessing, and deploying a Server Configuration Profile or firmware update from a central repository. Dell's Zero-Touch Repository Manager and auto-updates reduce firmware updating time by up to 92 percent.5

Empowering workloads for any scale

With more than 60 percent of ITDMs reporting in the Future Ready IT survey that their company relies on a mix of traditional and emerging business applications, today’s data centers must support a diverse and broad set of workloads and applications. Dell’s new PowerEdge servers offer flexible platforms and innovative architectures that enable customers to tailor systems to meet their unique application and workload requirements including business computing, unified communications and collaboration, virtualization, and technical computing.

Key Quotes

“Businesses are in the midst of facing disruptive forces such as hybrid cloud computing, mobility, big data and software defined data centers while balancing initiatives that deliver exponential enhancements towards IT operational efficiency.

“IT organizations are facing a growing challenge to balance innovation with the need to deliver applications faster and more efficiently, all while outpacing increasing business performance and data demands. Microsoft is working closely with Dell to deliver validated solutions on PowerEdge 13th generation servers that enable self-service capabilities and deliver all the benefits and agility of cloud computing on premise while providing consistency and mobility with Service Provider Clouds and Microsoft Azure.” – Bill Laing, CVP, Cloud and Enterprise, Microsoft

“As customers look for new ways to address workload requirements, Intel and Dell continue our successful history of collaboration on server and microprocessor designs built for the next generation of IT. The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 family offers leading performance and breakthrough I/O capabilities to power Dell’s new PowerEdge servers and enable blazing storage speeds, enhanced server management and the versatility to run traditional and emerging business applications. We look forward to working with Dell to provide our mutual customers with optimized solutions for their evolving data center challenges in the digital services era.” – Shannon Poulin, Vice President, Data Center Group, Intel

“With the next generation of PowerEdge servers, Dell is the first vendor to unleash the full potential for Software-Defined Storage. The variety of drive options and sizes with lots of SSD types makes it a good choice for VMware deployments and Hadoop implementations. We saw an immediate boost of up to 100 percent in IOPS.” - Pavel Soukup, Head of IT, AVG

"As a cloud provider, total cost of ownership and energy efficiency of our servers are top priorities. We are impressed with the next generation of Dell servers, which bring energy efficiency to a new level, utilizing new technologies like Fresh Air 2.0 and iDRAC 8 with power capping and Intel Xeon E5v3 processors, all bundled with OpenManage Power Center Manager. The new OpenManage Power Center Manager will allow us to manage not just Dell hardware, but also other 3rd party equipment that we host in our data centers." - Martin Zidek, CTO, Master Internet

“ScaleMatrix relies on the Software-Defined Storage solutions from Dell and Nexenta to meet the demanding and ever growing needs of our customers. Their integrated solution gives us flexibility, customizability and the lowest total cost of ownership…both in CAPEX and OPEX. We are always looking at ways to improve storage performance and throughput while decreasing latency, and Dell’s new 13G servers with NexentaStor exceeded our expectations. We look forward to seamlessly integrating Dell’s 13G servers into both our storage and compute environments.” - Chris Orlando, Co-Founder, ScaleMatrix
