New Dell PowerEdge Servers Designed With OEMs in Mind
Dell designed and built its 12th generation of servers with input from more than 7,700 customers in 17 countries. Of those customers, many were original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers, including Teradata®, fabricadigitale, Utimaco®, Teleste and many others. Dell OEM Solutions spent a significant amount of time finding out what these customers want in a server, took the most common requests and built them into Dell’s new PowerEdge™ servers. The result is a new line of servers built specifically for OEMs with accelerated performance and expandability, increased productivity and simplified support.

The Most Powerful and Easy-to-Manage Servers in Dell's History; 2nd Generation of Embedded Management
Server SolutionsDell announced a full portfolio of 12th generation blade, rack and tower PowerEdge™ servers optimized to run mission-critical business applications. Dell designed and built its 12th generation servers with input from more than 7,700 customer conversations in 17 countries across four continents — focusing on their needs for innovation to deliver business results faster. The new Dell PowerEdge servers work seamlessly with Dell's storage and networking products and deliver innovations such as: 
  • Turning data into insights faster: Dell lays the foundation to extend its Fluid Data Architecture to the server. With Dell Express Flash, the industry’s first, front accessible, hot-swappable PCIe solid-state disks connected directly to the server, Dell can provide up to 10.5 times more Microsoft® SQL Server® transactions per second than HDD storage. Dell CacheCade data accelerator can provide up to 28 times quicker queries on Oracle® Databases.
  • Streamlining and automating essential systems management tasks: Dell extends its systems management capabilities with its 2nd generation of embedded server management tools that efficiently manage the deployment, updating, monitoring and maintenance of server life cycle. Dell’s new PowerEdge servers deliver bare-metal deployment and provisioning that requires up to 85.5 percent less engineer time and up to 86 percent fewer manual steps. This extension of Dell’s systems management capabilities is expected to build on functionality in its 11th generation of servers, which saved Vitacore customers up to 43 days of systems administrator time per year.
  • Driving energy efficiency to bring a breath of fresh air to the data center: Building on Dell’s history of enabling the world’s most energy efficient data centers with Microsoft Bing™ and others, Dell is bringing a breath of fresh air to all data centers with its 12th generation PowerEdge servers. With Dell fresh air IT equipment, a data center can realize an estimated (US) $3,000,000 in capital expenditures.
Dell Storage Arrays Offer Higher Performance, Flexible, Small Footprint to Easily Manage Data and Costs
Dell EqualLogic PS6110 Storage SystemDell also announced the next-generation EqualLogic™ PS Series storage arrays, which combine fast networking bandwidth with increased storage capacity in a smaller footprint than previous generations.
  • EqualLogic PS6110 Series — Ideal for midsized deployments with multiple physical or virtual servers. These arrays are configured with both optical (SFP+) and copper (10GBASE-T) 10GbE networking, supporting data center flexibility. With up to 72 terabytes in a single array and 1.2 petabytes in a single group, customers can easily scale when needed by adding additional arrays into an existing EqualLogic group without downtime or forklift upgrades.
  • EqualLogic PS4110 Series — Dell’s first 10GbE EqualLogic entry-point arrays can provide the same benefits and features as PS6110 Series, and are designed for smaller deployments and remote office locations. The systems support up to 36 terabytes in a single array and 72 terabytes in a single group.
Dell's Virtual Network Architecture Complements Server and Storage Announcements
NetworkingDell’s Virtual Network Architecture (VNA) is an open framework for virtualizing, automating and orchestrating network services in data center, campus and branch environments. Dell Virtual Network Architecture provides for an end-to-end 10GbE framework, which includes 10GbE top-of-rack and 10/40GbE distributed core fabrics. In the six months since acquiring Force10™ Networks, Dell has dramatically extended the global availability of its products by more than 40 percent to more than 80 countries and added nearly 600 customers.
Delivering Results Immediately With Optimized Virtualization Platforms
vStart for Dell Private CloudDell unveiled vStart for Dell Private Cloud, which is designed to help businesses rapidly deploy their own private cloud. vStart for Dell Private Cloud will enable businesses to accelerate application and IT service delivery through a converged, prebuilt infrastructure that includes the new 12th generation PowerEdge server, storage, networking and management components.
Desktops Delivered According to Business Requirements
Desktop VirtualizationDell Desktop Virtualization Solutions are designed to help customers simplify PC management and enhance security. Dell today announced two desktop virtualization offerings: Desktop Virtualization Solution Simplified and Desktop Virtualization Solution Enterprise. Dell Desktop Virtualization Solution Simplified is an integrated appliance, preconfigured with software and hypervisor components designed to remove the traditional cost and complexity of deploying smaller desktop virtualization solutions. Desktop Virtualization Solution Enterprise is designed to scale to thousands of virtual desktop users while reducing initial acquisition costs enabling deployments to start with as few as 50 seats.
Delivering Business Intelligence With Dell Quickstart Data Warehouse Appliance
Business IntelligenceDell unveiled the Dell Quickstart Data Warehouse Appliance that will help mid-market and departmental users easily organize, access and analyze data, enabling them to take advantage of business intelligence to make more informed decisions. The data-warehousing appliance, which is based on the new Dell PowerEdge servers and Microsoft SQL Server 2012, will leverage Dell Boomi® for data integration.
