Dell announces significant performance and capability enhancements to its PowerEdge 13th generation four-socket server portfolio extending large scale server deployments to solutions requirements for remote and branch offices.
Touted to be designed to optimize performance for big data, real-time analytics and dense virtualization deployments – the updated PowerEdge servers enable flexibility, scalability and manageability of customers’ demand for the future-ready enterprise.
Citing on the new development, Milan Khurana, CHRO, Prestige Constructions said, “While looking for a suitable infrastructure partner for ERP solutions on SAP HANA, we decided to engage with Dell to understand their offerings as a market leader in the space. We were impressed by the flexibility and ease of deployment of Dell’s server, storage and networking architecture. Our requirement was holistic – we needed a compact, flexible & scalable SAP Infrastructure coupled with a solution provider known for ‘Service Excellence’. We chose Dell as our preferred infrastructure partner and we are confident that we made the right decision.”
Powered with hardware-enhanced capabilities of the new Intel Xeon processor E7-8800 v4 family like Intel Run Sure Technology, the Dell PowerEdge R930 server is said to help customers quickly deploy database intensive applications, easily scale up and better manage infrastructure and mission-critical workload delivery.
The PowerEdge R930 enables customers with:
- Pioneer in-memory database performance: The Dell PowerEdge R930 with Intel Xeon E7-8890 V4 processors is reported to have set three new world-record benchmarks:
o A world-record result on the standard benchmark for the SAP HANA platform, SAP BW advanced mixed load (BW-AML) with 2 billion records. This new record is a 24.77 percent improvement over the previous 4-socket world record, which was set by the Dell PowerEdge R930 with E7v3 processors
o A world-record result on the standard benchmark for SAP HANA platform, SAP BW advanced mixed load (BW-AML) with 4 billion records. This new world record is a 23.06 percent improvement over the previous 4-socket world record, which was set by the Dell PowerEdge R930 with E7v3 processors
o A new world record result on the SAP sales and distribution (SD) standard application benchmark. This new world record is a 33.09 percent increase over the previous 4-socket world record, which was set by the Dell PowerEdge R930 with E7v3 processors
- Optimized data base performance: The PowerEdge R930 with MSFT SQL Server 2016, as well as its built-in high performing data warehouse, have processing power required for virtualization and memory-intensive application workloads for database. PowerEdge R930 with the Dell Compellent SC9000 All Flash Array, MS SQL Server 2016 data-warehousing and Emulex’s latest fiber channel 16G Gen 6 delivered 99.4 percent greater storage throughput and 44% faster IOPs than the legacy Emulex 8G Gen 5 fiber channel solution
Greater flexibility and scalability with the new Dell PowerEdge R830
PowerEdge R830 is a foundational four-socket rack server designed for database applications, scale-out virtualization and VDI environments. With a 2U rack server form factor it is ideal for mainstream and mid-market customers standardized on a rack form factor. The Dell PowerEdge four-socket server portfolio is now the company’s most comprehensive with the addition of the PowerEdge R830 featuring Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 v4 product family.
With four processors and up to 48 DIMMS the PowerEdge R830 provides:
- An optimum combination of scalability, flexibility and density for both scale-out virtualization deployments as well as VDI deployments
- A great balance across compute, memory and overall cost for customers running computational or transactional Microsoft SQL or Oracle databases standardized on rack form factors
This four-socket extension of the Intel Xeon processor E5 family gives customers more options and greater flexibility for scaling their infrastructure and growing business in a hardware-enhanced security environment.
“Enterprises have been dealing with changing waves of technology. Be it BYOD, Analytics, Big Data or the Cloud. In short, the lines of business have been re-drawn and that means enterprises need to be constantly ahead of the IT infrastructure curve when it comes to delivering the best experience and service for their customers, regardless of where they are,” said Manish Gupta, Director & General Manager, Enterprise Solutions Group, Dell India. “Dell’s updated 13th generation PowerEdge R930 has the capabilities to address the workloads of not just today but also workloads that will emerge due to new trends in the future. These servers are designed completely basis on customer feedback and our knowledge of understanding where the future of IT is headed. Customers can take advantage of its immense capabilities to handle all kinds of workloads.”
The PowerEdge FC830 is a full-width, four-socket compute node for the PowerEdge FX architecture that helps organizations quickly configure complete workloads using modular building blocks of IT resources. Whereas, the PowerEdge M830 blade server is a full-height, four-socket blade server that offers maximized data-center consolidation delivering vast amounts of compute.
The PowerEdge R930, 4S/4U rack sever is exclusively obtainable, with the Intel Xeon processor E7-8800 v4 family. The PowerEdge R830 rack server and PowerEdge FC830 and M830 blade servers will be aligned to Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 v4 availability later in June.
