|“In the past, we had to purchase and install additional network interface cards to have the technology we wanted from our preferred vendor. It was costly and time-consuming. The Dell Select Network Adapter technology available with the Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers allows us to have our preferred networking vendor, technology, and speed right out of the box. We can better tailor our servers to our applications without having to spend more time or resources.”|
Stacey Brown, Senior UNIX Administrator, Moneygram International
|“SpryWare is dedicated to providing ultra low-latency financial market data to its customers. We constantly refresh our hardware to accommodate the rapidly increasing speed and volume of transactions that we need to process and redistribute to customers. Our testing showed that the increased core count and improved processor architecture of the new Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers significantly boosted performance of our software compared with previous-generation servers. By processing more data and delivering that data to customers faster, we can help them make better and more timely financial decisions.”|
Al Pintoy, Director, Research and Development, SpryWare LLC
|“In managing and maintaining the high-performance computing systems at the University of Utah, we need to be very responsive to new requests and potential issues, around the clock. We rely on the Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) to address problems remotely—sometimes from home, in the middle of the night—without having to run into the data center. The iDRAC7 with Lifecycle Controller available with the Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers will help ensure that HPC resources are available whenever users need them. We couldn’t run without iDRAC.”|
Erik Brown, System Administrator, Center for High-Performance Computing, University of Utah

Not more technology. Better technology.Exclusive Dell PowerEdge 12th generation server innovations give you even more power to:
|Futureproof your data center|
Our unique Dell Select Network Adapter gives you modular choices for network fabric capability. This flexibility allows you to then choose your vendor/provider, speed and networking technologies. So in the future, you can seamlessly migrate between 1GbE and 10GbE.
|Make the migration to truly agent-free control|
iDRAC7 with Lifecycle Controller, our innovative agent-free system management tool, provides direct access to hardware status, inventory and configuration even if the operating system is down or not installed. iDRAC7 allows you to monitor, troubleshoot and remediate servers. It also sends you server alerts with improved error messaging and removes dependence on the operating system or agents. You get increased oversight with fewer resources and lower cost.
|Experience a revolutionary bottleneck breakthrough|
With the Dell PowerEdge Express Flash SSD, solid-state disk drives can now be connected directly to the PCIe Gen 3 bus, providing 500 percent faster data access than previous Dell servers. This unique innovation allows you to tune and optimize workload performance so that data can be turned into valuable information faster. Run workloads more efficiently with the flexibility to optimize all workload operations. And enjoy accelerated performance for databases, ERP solutions and other high I/O applications.
Virtual performance delivered.Many organizations are using virtualization to address growth and business consolidation and drive operational efficiency. They are moving from previous one-server, one-application approaches to running virtual instances of those applications on a single host server. These virtualized applications typically include workgroup collaboration, web servers, databases and others.
|Designed for virtualization|
The Dell PowerEdge™ 12th generation servers with 2nd generation embedded management have been designed with virtualization in mind including maximized memory capacities and lots of fast internal storage capacity (sometimes double the speed that of the previous generation servers) and with new highly flexible I/O and networking options such as Select Network Adapters, Dell’s innovative modular NIC technology.
This all adds up to letting you consolidate more of your IT environment — using fewer servers — saving cost, energy and space. Furthermore, managing virtual environments is easier than ever. You can take advantage of Dell’s Virtual Integrated System™ solution to enable complex virtualization environments in just a few mouse clicks. And the integration of Dell’s OpenManage system management with VIS, VMware® vCenter™ and Microsoft® System Center simplifies managing both physical and virtual assets.
The new Dell PowerEdge™ 12th generation servers with 2nd generation systems management are also designed to ensure business continuity and provide secure, continual access to the IT services that power your business. They enable you to maximize your virtual environments uptime with failsafe hypervisors that run redundantly on mirrored dual SD cards.
New Dell PowerEdge™ 12th generation servers have been engineered to meet the demands of running multiple applications in a virtualized environment. For failsafe virtualization, the new PowerEdge allows redundancy for embedded hypervisor deployments in order to maximize uptime. And Dell ProSupport™ helps you troubleshoot issues to get systems up and running quickly.
