Upgraded PowerEdge Four-Socket Servers – Maximizing Performance of Enterprise Applications and Core Business Workloads

The rapid adoption of cloud solutions, real-time data analytics and big data initiatives is changing the dynamics of IT datacenters and workloads. Customers in Asia Pacific and Japan are increasingly looking for highly virtualized data centers capable enough to manage ever-evolving enterprise applications and business workloads. According to IDC’s MaturityScape Benchmark Report for Big Data and Analytics (BDA) organizations in the Asia Pacific region have developed vision and are setting up BDA strategies, however many have yet to implement solutions and build up internal infrastructure capabilities. To enable customers of all sizes to realize peak performance, maximize operational efficiency and implement future-ready IT, we recently announced key upgrades to our PowerEdge server portfolio, designed to optimize performance for big data and real-time analytics and dense virtualization deployments

Scalability to maximize performance

The upgraded PowerEdge 13th generation servers include Dell PowerEdge R930 and R830 rack servers and the updated PowerEdge FX2 and PowerEdge M1000e converged platforms with the PowerEdge FC830 and the PowerEdge M830 blade servers. Leveraging the new Intel Xeon processor E7-8800/4800 v4 and E5-4600 v4 product family, customers can quickly deploy performance intensive applications, easily scale up and better manage infrastructure and mission-critical workload delivery.

Here are some details on the new editions to our 13th generation family:

  • PowerEdge R930: Specifically designed for the enterprise it has all the power and capacity required to meet business needs, PowerEdge 930 support max. 24 HDDs and max. 8 front hot-plug PCIe NVMe SSDs, which are incredibly flexible and designed for high performance workloads. Additionally, PowerEdge R930 with up to Intel Xeon E7-8890 V4 processors recently set three new SAP HANA world-record benchmarks.
  • PowerEdge R830: PowerEdge R830 is a foundational four-socket rack server designed for database applications, scale-out virtualization and VDI environments. This four-socket extension of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4600 v4 family gives customers more options and greater flexibility for scaling their infrastructure and growing business in a hardware-enhanced security environment.

The Dell PowerEdge R930

Dell’s four-socket server portfolio is engineered to provide customers with platform choice to best support their data center density, scalability, manageability and flexibility needs. In addition to the PowerEdge R930 and R830 rack servers, Dell also updated its PowerEdge FX2 and PowerEdge M1000e converged platforms with the PowerEdge FC830 and the PowerEdge M830 blade servers featuring the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4600 v4 family.

  • 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. This converged platform provides twice the four-socket density of any solution in the industry, making it ideal for Oracle RAC or dense four-socket deployments[1].
  • 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 Dell PowerEdge FC830

Driven by cloud, mobile, social, and big data trends, the changes in the server industry are accelerating. In many ways, IT services will become pervasive in all parts of the business — from business development to decision strategy to client services. A critical success factor for companies will be for their IT organizations to deploy systems into their environment that can accelerate applications and improve operational efficiency.

Dell PowerEdge servers are the foundation of a comprehensive enterprise systems portfolio that includes storage, networking, software, management and services.
