Purpose-Built for Reliability

Purpose-Built for Reliability

The design of the PowerEdge™ R815 centers on reliability and ease of use, with features ranging from robust, metal-hard drive carriers and embedded diagnostics to an interactive LCD display and industrial-quality materials. The PowerEdge R815 also includes dual internal SD modules to provide failover at the hypervisor level — another reliability feature designed with direct input from Dell customers.
Server Reliability A Long-Term Goal

Server Reliability: A Long-Term Goal

Dell customers have told us they need a server manufacturer that inspires confidence through its reliability, availability and quality of products. By listening to and focusing on what our customers want, we’ve set a simple reliability goal: Deliver quality products that stand the test of time.


To help meet this goal, Dell is dedicated to improving reliability processes by:

  • Employing robust validation and testing processes for durable product design
  • Verifying that each supplier meets Dell’s stringent quality standards
  • Utilizing robust, durable industrial materials to enable long product lifecycles
  • Introducing a Unified Server Configurator (USC), which helps to minimize downtime by offering embedded and persistent diagnostics with no media required
  • Improving redundancy generation over generation with features such as dual internal SD modules that provide failover at the hypervisor level
  • Implementing a "one-touch" quality-control process designed to ensure that one person is responsible for the entire server build
  • Ensuring that every fully configured Dell server is tested—and retested—before it leaves the factory

 

Intelligent, Connected Systems Management

Along with its adherence to open standards, Dell’s systems-management portfolio focuses on simplicity, efficiency, cost containment and cost reduction. Additionally, we’ve integrated our management solutions with third-party offerings to provide your organization with a holistic focus across the solutions stack.

Intelligent, Connected Systems Management
Integrated on the server, the Lifecycle Controller helps to simplify administrator tasks by performing a comprehensive set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration, and diagnostics in a pre-OS environment—all from a single, intuitive interface called the Unified Server Configurator (USC). This can help eliminate the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.
Intelligent, Connected Systems Management
The PowerEdge R815 also features an interactive LCD display positioned on the front of the server for easy setup, monitoring and maintenance. Plain-language diagnosis and a programmable messaging system can help users address issues quickly, while a color-based alert screen (blue for normal operation; amber for a problem) simplifies day-to-day monitoring.
Intelligent, Connected Systems Management
Dell’s OpenManage systems-management portfolio also includes the Dell Management Console, which is included with every Dell server, and provides IT managers with a consolidated view of their entire IT infrastructure.
