Dell launches new PowerEdge blade and rack servers that are “designed and optimized to run in most computer intensive data centers”. New PowerEdge servers are based on x86 architecture and feature the FlexMemory Bridge technology and embedded hypervisor for helping speed the deployment and operation of virtualization.
New Models include:
The PowerEdge R910 is an ideal platform for RISC/UNIX migrations, large database deployments and server virtualization implementations. This 4U rack server is available with a high-performance four-socket Intel Nehalem-EX processor, up to 64 DIMM slots for memory, redundant power supplies and a failsafe embedded hypervisor to give customers the performance, reliability and memory scalability they need to run mission critical applications.
A high-performance four-socket Intel Xeon 7500 based blade server, the PowerEdge M910 is best suited for customers looking to maximize the advantages of server virtualization and consolidation or for use as a medium or large database platform. This full-height blade can scale up to 512GB of RAM across 32 DIMM slots.
The PowerEdge R810 is best suited for customers looking to consolidate server hardware through virtualization and deploy email messaging and database applications. The 2U offering is available in high-density two- or four-socket varieties and is powered by Intel Nehalem-EX processing technology. Through advances in memory management, up to 32 memory DIMM slots can be accessed by just two low cost processors, enabling it to manage four socket workloads.
Ideal for virtualization, high-performance computing, email messaging, and database workloads, the PowerEdge R815 powered by AMD Opteron processors offers customers an excellent balance of memory scalability of up to 32 DIMMs with the ability to deploy up to 48 processing cores. This four-socket, 2U solution is ideal for customers seeking a capable and affordable computing platform.
