Industry-leading 14th generation PowerEdge servers, the bedrock of the modern data center, adds AMD EPYC processor-based systems to its portfolio
ROUND ROCK, TEXAS, FEB. 6, 2018 -
Dell EMC announced 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 EPYCTM™ processors and pioneering PowerEdge server technology deliver compute capabilities that optimally enhance emerging workloads. With up to 32 cores (64 threads), 8 memory channels and 128 PCIe lanes, AMD’s EPYCTM™ processors offer flexibility, performance, and security features for today’s software defined ecosystem.
“We are pleased to partner again with Dell EMC and integrate our AMD EPYC processors into the latest generation of PowerEdge servers to deliver enhanced scalability and outstanding total cost of ownership,” said Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager of the Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Business Group (DESG), AMD. “Dell EMC servers are purpose built for emerging workloads like software-defined storage and heterogeneous compute and fully utilize 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.”
Technology is at a relentless pace of scale and record adoption, which has resulted in emerging workloads that are growing in scale and scope. These workloads are driving new system requirements and features that are, in turn, advancing development and adoption of technologies such as NVMe, FPGAs and in-memory databases. 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.
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:
The new line of PowerEdge servers powered by AMD EPYC™ processor will be available to channel partners across the globe, so they can cover a broad spectrum of configurations to optimize diverse workloads for customers.
