Today Dell held events worldwide to unveil its 12th generation of server technology. Dell says these PowerEdge servers are the company’s highest performing, most manageable servers ever, a press release states.
“Our customers told us that they need end-to-end solutions to handle the complex workload problems they face every day," says Brad Anderson, President of Enterprise Solutions Group at Dell. "As such, we built our new generation of servers, systems management and workload solutions to address the needs of business end users who require maximum performance to run mission-critical applications and IT departments which demand more efficient, secure and reliable operations.”
The new servers include the R820, R720, R720xd and R620 rack servers, the M620 blade server, the T620 tower server and the C6220, all using the Intel Xeon processor E5.
The servers range in memory size from 32GB to 2TB.
The release also states PowerEdge servers "increase performance per watt up to 101 times over Dell servers ten years ago, enabling large data centers to save up to $1.8 million per year on server power alone."
These next-gen servers will be available soon, but an exact release date and pricing have yet to be confirmed.
