Dell backs Microsoft Windows Server 2012

Dellannounced its 12th generation server line PowerEdge will be built to take immediate advantage of key advancements in Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Server 2012.

The Dell PowerEdge 12th generation server can optimize the virtualization infrastructure that Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V provides to scale and secure workloads along with data centres. The fully engineered product has large memory support and enhanced IO throughput.

According to Dell, the PowerEdge 12th generation servers enable customers to maximize the virtualization platform offered in Windows Server 2012. This helps IT administrators create data centres and cloud infrastructures that provide flexible workloads, networks and storage solutions.

The Dell PowerEdge M420 and C6220 servers provide virtualization node density that drives the increased scalability of Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V environments.

The Dell vStart and reference architectures provide streamlined deployment and building blocks for private cloud.

Windows Server 2012 and Dell PowerEdge are also able to automate deployment, updates, monitoring and maintenance of Dell servers in physical and virtual environments through OpenManage integration with Microsoft System Centre. Dell Lifecycle Controller Integration enables agent-free, automated, remote, one-to-many BIOS and firmware server updates through the System Centre Configuration Manager (SCCM) console, independent of the operating system (OS) and hypervisor.
