Dell PowerEdge Servers Upgraded With Intel 4th Gen Xeon
January 19, 2023
New servers for cloud service providers
Next-generation PowerEdge servers provide
improved performance, including the Dell PowerEdge R760, which delivers
up to 2.9x greater AI inferencing on 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable
processors with Intel Deep Learning Boost and Intel Advanced Matrix
Extensions.2 The PowerEdge R760 also offers up to a 20% increase in VDI
users and over 50% more SAP Sales & Distribution users on one server,
compared to the previous generation.4 PowerEdge systems may be ordered
with NVIDIA Bluefield-2 data processing units to provide additional
offload, acceleration and workload isolation capabilities ideal for
power efficiency for private, hybrid and multicloud deployments.
Dell CloudIQ — Dell software combines proactive monitoring, machine learning and predictive analytics while offering a comprehensive view of servers wherever they reside. Updates include advancements to server performance forecasting, select maintenance operations and new virtualization visualization.
Dell ProDeploy services — The Dell ProDeploy Factory Configuration service delivers PowerEdge servers ready to install and preconfigured with the customer’s preferred operating system, hypervisor software and settings for RAID, BIOS and iDRAC. The Dell ProDeploy Rack Integration service delivers and installs production-ready racked and networked PowerEdge servers, ideal for companies expanding their data center environments or undergoing an IT modernization.
Dell iDRAC9 — As customers seek increased server automation and intelligence, Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) makes Dell systems easier to deploy and diagnose, equipped with updated features such as Certificate Expiry Notice, Telemetry for Dell Consoles and GPU monitoring.
“With improvements in genomic sequencing
technology and new methods in the lab driving data growth, data flows
will continue to expand in the future. To ensure our continued
innovation, we need to process data quickly and efficiently,” said Dr.
Pete Clapham, Informatics Support Group Leader, Wellcome Sanger
Institute. “Dell PowerEdge servers are well-designed, have built-in
security, and deliver the performance that allows us to accelerate
scientific discovery and bring innovation to the world faster.”
Dell OpenManage Enterprise Power Manager 3.0 software — Customers can better manage efficiency and cooling goals, monitor carbon emissions and set power caps up to 82% faster to limit overall energy usage. With the enhanced sustainability target tool, customers can determine overall server use, virtual machine and facility energy consumption, leak detection for liquid cooling systems, and more.
Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) — Four next-generation Dell PowerEdge servers will be available with the EPEAT silver designation, and 46 systems will be designated EPEAT bronze. The EPEAT ecolabel is a leading global designation, covering products and services from the technology sector that demonstrate a responsible purchasing decision.
"Today’s modern data center requires
continuous performance improvements for complex workloads such as AI, ML
and VDI,” said Kuba Stolarski, research vice president, IDC Enterprise
Infrastructure Practice. “As data center operators endeavor to keep up
with the demand from these resource hungry workloads, they must also
prioritize environmental and security goals. With its new Smart Flow
design, coupled with enhancements to its power and cooling management
tools, Dell offers organizations significant improvements in efficient
server operation alongside the raw performance gains in its newest
generation of servers.”
Next-generation PowerEdge servers help accelerate Zero Trust adoption within organizations’ IT environments. The devices constantly verify access, assuming every user and device is a potential threat. At the hardware level, silicon-based hardware root of trust, with elements including the Dell Secured Component Verification (SCV), helps verify supply chain security from design to delivery. Additionally, multifactor authentication and integrated iDRAC verifies users before granting access.
A secure supply chain also enables customers to advance their Zero Trust approach. Dell SCV offers cryptographic verification of components, which extends supply chain security to the customer’s site.
Delivering a scalable, modern compute
Dell PowerEdge HS5620, HS5610 are available globally in April 2023.
Additional next-generation Dell PowerEdge servers will be global availability throughout the first half of 2023.
ProDeploy Factory Configuration is globally available today, and ProDeploy Rack Integration is available today in the US.
Dell APEX compute services are planned for the second half of 2023.
