A toast for getting 11G right!

R815 CRN PotY Award Banner yellow

We ended 2010 on the right note! Our 11G PowerEdge servers continue to garner praise and accolades from a wide variety of sources. This third-party validation means our approach to designing and building a better server is working and that customer concerns and issues being addressed. Whether it’s from you or industry reviewers, we use that feedback to help us build better servers. That is why we wanted to share some of the positive feedback we’re getting on the PowerEdge R815.

Recently our PowerEdge R815 won CRN’s Products of the Year Award. This award attempts to showcase, “a series of products that, in many ways, allow us to do more, do better and begin to do things we’ve wanted to do but had no way to do. These are the best technology products of 2010.” This award caps off a four out of five star rating that the PowerEdge R815 received back in July from IT Pro.

The Dell PowerEdge R815 stands out because it delivers up to 48 processor cores with a balanced architecture, memory scalability of up to 32 DIMMs, massive I/O, and system redundancy all in a space-saving 4-socket/2U form factor. From a reseller perspective, this server provides an excellent opportunity to sell a RISC/UNIX migration platform with exceptional price/performance.

It is capable of tackling some of the toughest virtualization, high-performance computing, email messaging, and database workloads, which is why when the CRN Test Center ran the R815 through its paces they said it, “was engineered from the ground up for maximum I/Os per second.” The review also indicated that, “the performance delivered by the new Dell server was impressive, rivaling that of a specialty system,” while commenting that, “where the R815 really excelled was in transaction processing.”

The PowerEdge R815, as well as every PowerEdge 11th generation server, is designed to make it easier for companies to acquire, operate and maintain technology, whether that means simplified management through our unique Lifecycle Controller, more reliability, better energy efficiency or higher performance with the latest and greatest product innovations. We did our homework on our 11G servers and we’re always encouraging feedback. We want to hear how PowerEdge is making a difference in your IT environment so let us know.
