Dell Technologiesrefreshes Dell EMC PowerEdge portfolio with 17 next-generation servers, enabling companies to analyze and take action on data wherever it resides
- New Dell EMC PowerEdge XE8545 and R750xa deliver accelerator-optimized performance to help businesses tackle their most data-intensive workloads
- From manufacturing to end of life, enhanced security and cyber-resilient innovations protect servers through their full lifecycle
- Energy efficiency improved by up to 60% compared to previous server generation1
- As-a-Service options offer consumption flexibility to consume and as-a-Service payment options for compute solutions
The world's best-selling server portfolio2 provides the power needed to gain and act on real-time insights from data wherever it may reside—from core data centers to public clouds and edge locations. Reimagined with 17 new PowerEdge servers and bolstered by 1,100
"Data is being created and used in more places than ever before, and organizations are challenged to act on it as quickly as possible," said
Autonomous compute helps customers fully realize self-deployed, self-provisioned and self-managed infrastructure in the future. Today, through Dell EMC OpenManage Enterprise, PowerEdge servers and systems management can deliver up to 85% time savings on average and eliminate dozens of steps with automation.3
Highest performance to date helps businesses reach goals faster
Optimizing the latest technologies from AMD and Intel, new PowerEdge servers deliver the compute power needed for customers' most critical workloads and applications. Example advancements include:
- PowerEdge R6515, featuring 3rd Generation AMD EPYC™ processors, accelerates data processing capabilities by up to 60% in big data Hadoop databases4, speeding time to insights.
- PowerEdge R750, with the upcoming 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, deliver up to 43% greater performance in solving massively parallel linear equations5, supporting most computational-heavy workloads.
"With the virtualized environment we've deployed on PowerEdge servers, we have the agility to shift workloads as needed," said
AI-optimized to tackle the most data-intensive workloads
PowerEdge servers now feature PCIe Gen 4.0 – doubling throughput performance over the previous generation – and up to six accelerators per server to support the most challenging, data-intensive workloads. These technologies, coupled with PowerEdge's autonomous intelligence, make this the most AI-enabled PowerEdge portfolio to date, enabling organizations to anticipate and more quickly respond to their needs.
This latest portfolio features two all-new, accelerator-optimized servers:
- PowerEdge XE8545, a powerhouse for AI workloads, powers the latest HPC Ready Solution for AI and Data Analytics, making it easier to run AI, analytics and advanced computing workloads on one system. The PowerEdge XE8545 combines up to 128 cores of 3rd Generation AMD EPYC processors, four NVIDIA A100 GPUs, and optimized performance of NVIDIA's vGPU software in a dual socket, 4U rack server.
- PowerEdge R750xa, purpose-built to boost acceleration performance, delivers GPU-dense performance for machine learning training, inferencing and AI with support for the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software suite exclusively available for
VMwarevSphere 7 Update 2. The dual socket, 2U server is powered by the 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and supports up to four double-wide GPUs and six single-wide GPUs.
Ruggedized and short-depth servers take IT to the edge
Built to thrive in remote and harsh environments, the portfolio now includes the new PowerEdge XR11 and XR12 ruggedized servers that bring enterprise performance and security to a durable form factor. With a hardened chassis, minimal footprint and support for multiple accelerators, the Intel-based XR11 and XR12 short-depth servers are built for the growing demands of edge-based workloads.
"Infrastructure has long been evolving beyond the data center, and workloads at the edge are only becoming more complex," said
Security that's built-in, not bolted on, for end-to-end protection
Organizations around the world report their top concern on the path to digital transformation is data privacy and cybersecurity.6 Built with cyber-resilient architecture and a well-established silicon Root of Trust, the new portfolio's comprehensive approach ensures PowerEdge servers are secure at throughout their lifecycle, from manufacturing, deployment and beyond.
Security starts before deployment with Dell Technologies Secured Component Verification, a first-of-its-kind offering for servers7 and an extension to
Energy-efficient cooling, designed with sustainability in mind
Energy-efficient products are important to the environment and to our customers and our commitment to sustainability is embedded into everything we do. With a uniquely designed chassis, the new servers feature ducted fans and adaptive cooling for more efficient power consumption that improves energy efficiency by up to 60% over previous generation.1 Coupled with multi-vector cooling, PowerEdge automatically directs airflow to the hottest part of the server for optimized cooling. Direct Liquid Cooling, available on select servers, features a proprietary leak-sensing technology to find and resolve issues faster.
Flexible ways to consume compute
With Project APEX,
Through the Dell Tech Cloud Console, customers today can subscribe and configure compute instances in private or hybrid cloud environments to finetune infrastructure capabilities to match their workloads. In the future, companies will be able to provision instances for virtual machines and container-based workloads, have them delivered to data center or at the edge, all with pay-as-you-go pricing.
Additionally, the new lineup of PowerEdge servers are available with Flex On Demand that allows customers to acquire the technology they need with payments that scale to match actual usage.**
