PowerEdge: Your Innovation Engine for businesses of all sizes

Announcing building-block rack servers and small foot-print tower servers that provide flexible, powerful, and affordable solutions for organisations of all sizes.

The edge is everywhere – data and compute are no longer limited to the data centre. With business models becoming more distributed, today’s organisations require an adaptive and flexible infrastructure.

To meet their objectives, businesses have always required an understanding of what the market needs and how to reach target customers. It is equally important that they enable digital transformation by leveraging modern infrastructure to extend compute where it can create the most value. With the right solutions from Dell Technologies, small and medium-sized businesses can scale effectively, process data quickly and securely, and deliver more connected customer experiences inside or outside of a data centre – all while optimising costs and productivity. The same is true for enterprise-level organisations.

Dell EMC PowerEdge servers power your innovation engine, with adaptive compute that’s flexible enough to address evolving IT needs and deliver real-time business value at the point of data creation – wherever that’s taking place. Dell Technologies enables customers to navigate the changing digital landscape with the broadest server portfolio, including servers purpose-built for edge and telecom environments.

The new PowerEdge entry-level rack and tower servers, built with Intel® Xeon® processors, are designed for small- and medium-sized businesses, as well as enterprises, to process information securely with less latency. Extending capabilities beyond the walls of a traditional data centre allows organisations to capture information where it’s immediately relevant and gain insights to improve customer and employee experiences.

From affordable building block servers to powerhouse mainstream servers like the new T550, PowerEdge can support business critical and advanced workloads to help organisations innovate, adapt, and grow. Designed with office-friendly acoustics and thermals, these servers are ideal for use inside the data centre as well as some edge environments.

Introducing the PowerEdge T550

The Dell EMC PowerEdge T550, powered by 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, is a flexible two-socket tower server that balances expandability and performance. The PowerEdge T550 supports advanced technologies such as accelerators for enterprise-class workloads: AI and inferencing, virtualisation, medical imaging, data analytics, and software-defined storage.

PowerEdge entry level rack and towers

Built with Intel® Xeon® E-2300 processors, the PowerEdge entry-level rack and tower servers provide additional compute capabilities, memory, and storage to increase productivity.

New PowerEdge servers: T150, T550, T350, R250, R350
New PowerEdge servers: T150, T550, T350, R250, R350

The new one-socket PowerEdge servers have a small footprint to combat space limitations and the T350 has an updated design that is 37% smaller than its previous generation, making it even more useful in office, hospitality, and retail settings.

Optimising costs is critical for all businesses and these servers are flexible, affordable, and reliable building blocks for organisations to address needs ranging from business-critical workloads, cloud infrastructure, to point of sale transactions.

Additionally, the PowerEdge R350 has high availability features for secure database management.

Dell Technologies delivers integrated systems management and security

Every PowerEdge server is supported by OpenManage solutions that deliver automation and intelligent infrastructure management so that your team can spend less time on routine maintenance and focus on high value strategic programs.

PowerEdge servers are built with a cyber-resilient architecture, starting at the silicon design and permeating the system’s lifecycle, from manufacturing, through the supply chain, and retirement – all from a single, trusted vendor.
