Dell Unveils New “Powerhouse” PowerEdge Servers Designed and Optimized to Run in the Most Compute Intensive Data Centers

  • Four new Dell™ PowerEdge™ blade and rack servers provide a robust IT platform for virtualization, server consolidation, mission critical business and database applications
  • Latest PowerEdge rack and blade servers are among the company’s highest performing servers, offering better performance than previous generations

ROUND ROCK, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 30, 2010 — Businesses and public organizations are increasingly seeking to improve virtualization performance, speed resource consolidation and support mission-critical business and database applications. Dell is ending their quest with four new PowerEdge servers capable of tackling the toughest computing environments while easing the migration from proprietary UNIX deployments. This announcement falls on the heels of Dell refreshing nine PowerEdge blade, rack and tower servers and three Dell Precision™ workstations with Intel® Xeon® 5600 series (Westmere) processors.

Incredible Performance & Flexibility — Dell’s Latest PowerEdge Servers

Based on industry standards and the x86 architecture, the latest PowerEdge offerings help customers reap the benefits of the “Virtual Era” in an open, capable and affordable manner. The new PowerEdge servers include:

  • PowerEdge R910: The PowerEdge R910 is an ideal platform for RISC/UNIX migrations, large database deployments and server virtualization implementations. This 4U rack server is available with a high-performance four-socket Intel Nehalem-EX processor, up to 64 DIMM slots for memory, redundant power supplies and a failsafe embedded hypervisor to give customers the performance, reliability and memory scalability they need to run mission critical applications.
  • PowerEdge M910: A high-performance four-socket Intel Xeon 7500 based blade server, the PowerEdge M910 is best suited for customers looking to maximize the advantages of server virtualization and consolidation or for use as a medium or large database platform. This full-height blade can scale up to 512GB of RAM across 32 DIMM slots.
  • PowerEdge R810: The PowerEdge R810 is best suited for customers looking to consolidate server hardware through virtualization and deploy email messaging and database applications. The 2U offering is available in high-density two- or four-socket varieties and is powered by Intel Nehalem-EX processing technology. Through advances in memory management, up to 32 memory DIMM slots can be accessed by just two low cost processors, enabling it to manage four socket workloads.
  • PowerEdge R815: Ideal for virtualization, high-performance computing, email messaging, and database workloads, the PowerEdge R815 powered by AMD Opteron processors offers customers an excellent balance of memory scalability of up to 32 DIMMs with the ability to deploy up to 48 processing cores. This four-socket, 2U solution is ideal for customers seeking a capable and affordable computing platform.

Delivering Innovative, Differentiated Server Platforms

Dell PowerEdge servers are designed to drive greater efficiency within IT operations through robust management, virtualization and design advancements. The Dell PowerEdge R910 offers up to 219 percent better SPECjbb2005 performance than the previous generation PowerEdge R900, and the Dell PowerEdge R815 performs up to 75 percent better SPECjbb2005 than the previous generation PowerEdge R9051.

  • FlexMemory Bridge Technology: Dell’s FlexMemory Bridge technology is designed to give users the added flexibility to select 2-socket PowerEdge blade and rack servers while accessing to up to 32 DIMM slots for outstanding memory scalability. The end result is that customers can receive expanded memory capacity without paying a premium price.
  • “Fail-Safe” Virtualization: Dell was one of the first companies to offer an embedded hypervisor, helping speed the deployment and operation of virtualization. Now Dell has taken an extra step to offer dual embedded hypervisors to help give customers the added security of a redundant hypervisor. This feature can provide customers peace of mind as they expand and increase the number of virtual machines running on an individual server.
  • Intelligent Infrastructure: Dell is driving intelligence into its server platforms with the availability of Lifecycle Controller, an embedded systems management application. Lifecycle Controller provides IT administrators with a single console view of their entire IT infrastructure while performing a comprehensive set of provisioning functions including system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics.
