For the second quarter in a row, we’ve sold more Dell EMC PowerEdge servers than any other vendor in the world*. This is a historic milestone for us and we’re excited that you’ve made PowerEdge servers such an integral part of your digital transformation.
In May, Dell EMC announced the next generation of PowerEdge servers. Today, we’re excited to be working with AMD with the release of their new EPYC™ processor designed specifically for the enterprise space.
Scalable Business Architecture
As you begin your digital transformation in cloud, mobility, IoT, virtualization, and software defined deployments, you face workloads that are radically different from those you faced just five years ago. As you invest in the future of your data center, you require a server architecture with exceptional ability to support modern workloads and scale to unpredictable demands. New Dell EMC PowerEdge servers provide flexible configurations to support these new workloads. With the high PCIe lane count (128 lanes) of the new AMD EPYC and its ability to support up to 24 NVMe devices out of a single processor, we now offer some truly unique server innovation in software defined storage and big data/data analytics at an outstanding TCO.
As your IT environment becomes more complex, automation is now more of a necessity than a luxury. A recent CIO report revealed ‘skills gaps’ being more pronounced than ever in their employees, primarily due to a steep learning curve. They want to spend less time administering their hardware and more time with innovative programs that drive new revenue streams. Our goal is to develop a “self-driving” server” offering automated deployment, updating, monitoring, and maintenance. We call this “intelligent automation.” New PowerEdge servers are intelligent enough to determine how they should be configured, how to recognize when something is wrong, and how to proactively get support. Furthermore, they are intelligent enough to protect the entire system from threats, detect and prevent potential security violations, and restore the server to a known trusted state.
Threats to customer data have never been higher. Malicious exploits come not only from outside the IT infrastructure but through malware spreading from inside. Your security needs to be built directly into the DNA of the hardware to give you a deep foundation for a trusted environment. That’s why we’ve integrate security into every aspect of the server lifecycle. This includes patented security features that ensure your server is secure from the time we build it to configuration, operation, and ultimately decommissioning. AMD EPYC complements the integrated security in PowerEdge servers by including Boot-Safe and Run-Safe technologies for a heightened level of encryption in virtualized and cloud environments
Dell EMC welcomes AMD’s re-entry into the enterprise space by making the EPYC processor a part of our PowerEdge server technology. We’re excited to make this technology available to you in the second half of 2017.
