Dell’s Best Foot Forward

Dell has debuted seven new blade, rack and tower PowerEdge servers which are optimised for mission-critical applications. This range is touted to be Dell’s highest performing, most manageable servers ever and potentially target small businesses to hyper-scale data centres with maximum efficiency by automating and streamlining operations.

The new PowerEdge R820, R720, R720xd and R620 rack servers, the M620 blade server, the T620 tower server and C6220 are designed based on a shared Dell infrastructure server built on the Intel Xeon processor E5 product family. This 12th generation server line is the foundation of a complete, flexible IT solution that includes Dell’s extensive portfolio of storage, networking and client components and professional IT services.

These servers along with systems management and workload solutions, are designed to deliver performance and management gains to effectively power the most demanding applications, including collaboration, IT and web infrastructure, high performance computing, decision support and business processing.

“Dell designed the new PowerEdge servers with input gathered from more than 7,700 customer interactions in 17 countries across four continents,” says KT Ong, General Manager, Commercial Business, Dell Sales Malaysia. “Our customers told us that they need end-to-end solutions to handle the complex workload problems they face every day. As such, we built our new generation of servers, systems management and workload solutions to address the needs of business end users who require maximum performance to run mission-critical applications and IT departments which demand more efficient, secure and reliable operations.”

One of the standout features of this new generation of servers include new all-in-one appliances. Dell vStart for Dell Private Cloud, including Dell VIS Creator software enables IT and business end users to accelerate application and IT service delivery. The Dell Quickstart Data Warehouse appliance will be the first data ware house appliance available on Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and aims to help mid-sized and departmental users easily organise, access and analyse data for more informed decisions.

“Dell’s PowerEdge 12th generation servers take advantage of the Intel Xeon processor E5 family’s leadership performance and breakthrough I/O capabilities to offer optimised solutions for customers’ most important workloads. In small scale deployments, private clouds, and enterprise datacenters, customers will also benefit from key innovations such as Dell OpenManage Power Center, which is built on top of Intel’s Node Manager solution for monitoring and implementing policies for greater energy efficiency,” says Prakash Mallya, country manager of sales and marketing, Intel Malaysia.
