Dell has announced the availability new performance and capability updates to its PowerEdge 13th generation four-socket server portfolio, including systems with Intel’s latest Xeon E7 v4 processors to allow customers to take advantage of greater performance for the enterprise applications, and upcoming systems with new E5 v4 processors offering more opt and greater flexibility for scaling infrastructure.
The PowerEdge 13th generation four-socket servers enhance performance for big data and the real-time analytics, as well as dense virtualization deployments, while promoting scalability, flexibility and manageability needed for a future-ready enterprise.
First is the PowerEdge R930, which leverages the Intel Xeon processor E7-8800 v4 family to help customers effectively deploy database intensive applications with the ability to seamlessly scale up, better manage infrastructure and mission-critical workload delivery.
R930 will maintain it’s 4U chassis with 10 PCIe slots, one RAID slot, and one network daughter card (NDC) slot. Support for up to 96 DIMMs enables as high as 12 terabyte of memory, as before. Models will be available with E7-4800 v4 processors. But swapping out the E7-8800 v3 series models for a E7-8800 v4 processor, Payne promises, will generate “world record performance” with SAP database workload benchmarks.
Next, is the 2U rack server PowerEdge R830, which is a foundational four-socket rack server clearly built to excel in database applications, scale-out virtualization and VDI environments and ideal for the mainstream and mid-market customers standardized on a rack form factor. The R830 also features the Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 v4 product family.
The PowerEdge R930, 4S/4U rack sever is now available while the PowerEdge R830 rack server and PowerEdge FC830 servers are slated for a later release in June.
