Dell EMC introduced its PowerEdge servers yesterday equipped with AMD’s 2nd-gen Epyc server processors.
During a web briefing, Dell explained that it’s not able to apply a single design and cater to all the different workloads. With five product offerings at different sizes and configurations, Dell hopes to provide better flexibility for its customers.
According to Dell’s internal benchmarks, its new single-socket EMC PowerEdge servers can achieve up to 280 per cent greater virtualized database performance, and is capable of competing with the previous generation dual-socket PowerEdge servers. In addition, the high-density C6525 achieves 202 per cent more operations in Linpack, a software library that measures algebraic calculations performance.
Out of the box, Dell’s PowerEdge servers integrate security and system management from ServiceNow, Microsoft, VMWare, and Red Hat Ansible. In addition, the AMD Epyc platform’s security features, such as memory encryption, provide end-to-end protection.
Through moving to the new platform, the motherboard has been redesigned to offer better cooling and ensure signal integrity.
Dell says that it’s now serving 62,500 SAP users on 2S servers using its PowerEdge R6525 servers.
The Dell PowerEdge R6515 and R7515 servers are now available worldwide. The R6525 and C6525 are expected to go on sale in October and the R7525 in early 2020.
