Dell performance

More power, faster payback

Dell™ | SQL Server® solutions deliver outstanding performance and reliability. Our PowerEdge™ servers offer multi-core processing power and storage options that are fine-tuned to handle heavy database workloads, in some cases on a single server.

In recent tests, four SQL Server 2000 instances, each containing six databases, were consolidated from an HP legacy system to the Dell PowerEdge R810 running SQL Server 2008 R2. The test results revealed lower licensing costs, system management costs and decreased power consumption, and predicted a payback period of less than 12 months and a 224 percent return on investment over three years.
