Dell EMC unveiled three new servers designed for software-defined environments, edge and high-performance computing (HPC). The PowerEdge R6415, PowerEdge R7415 and PowerEdge R7425 expand the 14th generation of the Dell EMC PowerEdge server portfolio with new capabilities to address the demanding workload requirements of today’s modern data center. All three rack servers with the AMD EPYC processor offer highly scalable platforms with outstanding total cost of ownership (TCO).
“As the bedrock of the modern data center, customers expect us to push server innovation further and faster,” said Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, President, Server and Infrastructure Systems at Dell EMC. “As customers deploy more IoT solutions, they need highly capable and flexible compute at the edge to turn data into real-time insights; these new servers that are engineered to deliver that while lowering TCO.”
The combined innovation of AMD EPYC processors and pioneering PowerEdge server technology delivers compute capabilities that optimally enhance emerging workloads. With up to 32 cores, 8 memory channels and 128 PCIe lanes, AMD’s EPYC processors offer flexibility, performance, and security features for today’s software defined ecosystem.
“Dell EMC servers are purpose built for emerging workloads like software-defined storage and heterogeneous compute and fully utilise the power of AMD EPYC. Dell EMC always keeps the server ecosystem and customer requirements top of mind, this partnership is just the beginning as we work together to create solutions that unlock the next chapter of data center growth and capability,” said Forrest Norrod, SVP and GM of the Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Business Group (DESG), AMD.
The PowerEdge R6415, PowerEdge R7415 and PowerEdge R7425 are designed to scale-up as customers’ workloads increase and have the flexibility to support today’s modern data center. Like all 14th generation PowerEdge servers, the new servers will continue to offer a scalable business architecture and intelligent automation with iDRAC9 and Quick Sync 2 management support. Integrated security is always a priority and the integrated cyber resilient architecture security features of the Dell EMC PowerEdge servers protects customers’ businesses and data for the life of the server.
