Build Bold Appliances on Dell EMC PowerEdge 14th Generation Servers

Yesterday at Dell EMC World, the 14th generation of PowerEdge servers were announced.  Ravi’s blog breaks down how the new, customer-inspired design came about and what it means for customers in this age of digital transformation.

Those of us over in Dell EMC’s OEM division are equally excited with the PowerEdge announcement. I thought I’d take a moment to share our perspective on what the platform’s key elements signify for customers who are in the business of bringing new solutions to market.

Scalable business architecture: Appliance to the cloud and everything in-between

As our customers and partners tell us they’ve experienced in their own solution design efforts, the digitization of every industry is real and it’s happening now. Customers are evaluating alternate delivery models. The appliance they desire might be virtualized, converged, hyper-converged, software-defined, in the cloud or anything in between. Having a scalable architecture is fundamental to accelerating your own digital product transformation.

The new Dell EMC PowerEdge appliance-ready servers are designed to maximize performance across all workloads and shrink development times. Dell EMC OEM works with to find the exact right fit platform for our OEM customers’ software, organization and customers. Then we configure and customize to achieve your vision. We make it simple to strengthen your brand while reducing cost and complexity.

Intelligent Automation: Free up resources, increase availability and deploy faster

Systems management is incredibly important. It increases the simplicity, efficiency and availability of your solutions, which makes increases their value. With PowerEdge, powerful systems management is integrated into the solution from day one including configuration, OS deployment, firmware updates, health monitoring and maintenance. Management is agentless, on-site or remote, and irrespective of operating system or hypervisor presence. You can harness our scriptable interfaces and integrate them right into your software applications. That means you aren’t spending time and resources developing your own systems management solution.

Integrated security:  Protect your solution, protect your business

Your solutions must be secure. OEM business depends on it. PowerEdge has a number of key security features built in from the ground up relevant to OEMs:  Self-encrypting drives, chassis intrusion detection, blacklisted bootable device categories, signed firmware updates and much more.

In short, get back to innovating. Take advantage of appliance-ready PowerEdge 14th generation servers from Dell EMC and you can dedicate time and money to what really matters: developing and enhancing your software. Whatever you’re working on, we can help you build it and get it to market faster. For more information, visit our site or reach out to me on Twitter. I’d love to hear from you.
