Dell EMC Announce AMD based servers, ideal for software defined, edge and HPC

Dell EMC announced an expansion of its 14th Generation PowerEdge server portfolio, with the addition of three AMD EYPC based processor variants.

These new AMD based servers, R7414, R7425 and R6415, deliver new capabilities to address the demanding workload requirements of today’s modern data centre, whilst these they offer highly scalable platforms with outstanding total cost of ownership (TCO).

These servers have up to 4TB memory capacity enhanced for database management system (DBMS) and analytics workload flexibility and are further optimized for the following environments:These new additions to the PowerEdge portfolio, offer workload flexibility and are further optimized for the following environments:

  • Edge computing deployments – The highly flexible, 1U single-socket Dell EMC PowerEdge R6415, provides up to 32 cores, and offers ultra-dense and scale-out computing capabilities. With storage flexibility through disk, SSD and NVMe drives.
  • Software-defined Storage datacentre – The 2U single-socket Dell EMC PowerEdge R7415 is the first AMD EPYCTM-based server platform certified as a VMware vSAN Ready Node and offers up to 20% better TCO per four-node cluster for vSAN deployments. The R7415 facilitates accelerated east/west traffic for cloud and virtual environments, whilst its large memory capacity and NVMe drives capability, allow customers to improve storage efficiency and scale quickly at a fraction of the cost of traditional storage.
  • HPC – The dual-socket Dell EMC PowerEdge R7425 delivers improved performance versus competitive offerings for containers, hypervisors, virtual machines and cloud computing and up to 25% absolute performance improvement for HPC workloads. Utilising up to 64 cores, it offers high bandwidth with dense GPU/FPGA capability. The R7425 server’s superior memory bandwidth and core density provided excellent results across a wide range of HPC workloads stresstests.

The three new AMD based PowerEdge servers are available for pricing and delivery today, via the Arrow Dell EMC team. More details and information is available via the team or on the spec sheet:

Dell EMC PowerEdge 14th Generation Servers powered HCI

The best HCI is getting even better!!  And the forecast is very bright! Analysts predict HCI solutions revenue will reach $4B by 2019, and HCI is the fastest infrastructure market segment year-on-year.

The #1 Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) vendor, Dell EMC, is now offering its latest PowerEdge 14th Generation server platform, for both the its industry leading appliances VxRail and XC.

Offering greater perform, scalability and flexibility than ever seen in its x86 portfolio, Dell EMC’s 14th Generation PowerEdge platform enables customers to boost their efficiency, increase business opportunity whilst leveraging the benefits of a software defined data centre platform.

Recognised by analysts, Dell EMC are positioned as the leaders in both Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) and x86 server units.

The enhanced Dell EMC HCI appliance portfolio offers customers significantly faster access to applications and data thanks to higher core counts, faster clock frequency, more memory channels, and faster memory resulting in up to 1.7x more processing power and up to 62% higher internal bandwidth.

VxRail based PowerEdge 14th generation servers offer more powerful and predictable performance across millions of flexible configuration options to meet any HCI use case and more demanding, mission-critical workloads in VMware environments.

Whilst XC Series on 14th Generation PowerEdge servers enables higher performance for workloads, faster networking speeds and new NVMe/SSD configurations.

  • Dell EMC VxRail Appliances on Dell EMC PowerEdge 14th generation servers are orderable today and will be generally available starting December 12, 2017.
  • Dell EMC XC Series models XC640, XC740xd and XC740 on Dell EMC PowerEdge 14th generation servers are generally available today.

Both VxRail and XC platforms, based on Dell EMC 14th Generation PowerEdge Servers are available for pricing and delivery today, via the Arrow Dell EMC team.

#1 claims based on: IDC WW Quarterly x86 Server Tracker, Q2 2017, September 2017.
