Dell PowerEdge R930 Four-Socket Xeon Server Targeted at Unix to Linux Migration

13g-poweredge-r930-310x280Dell recently introduced the PowerEdge R930, a four-socket Intel Xeon based server which Dell believes to be the most powerful in its x86 line. The product is mainly targeted at helping customers with:

  • Migration from UNIX to Linux with ease and move to a more innovative, future-ready data center.
  • Resource intensive enterprise applications such as in-memory databases, customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP)

Customers can benefit from the economics of x86 standard servers but get performance at the level of non-x86 scalable servers.

“Dell servers are consistently pushing the boundaries when it comes to accelerating application performance, powering workloads in any environment and simplifying systems management so that customers can focus on their business,” said Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, general manager and vice president, Dell Server Solutions. “The PowerEdge R930, our powerhouse server, and our entire four-socket server portfolio are the latest examples of how we’re providing our customers with the technology they need to address the business needs of today and tomorrow.”

Dell is also trying to help customers quickly deploy applications with pre-integrated and pre-engineered appliances based on the new four-socket server. The PowerEdge R930 based Oracle 12c and SAP HANA appliances run on Linux Operating System and are pre-integrated and pre-configured to help customers deploy applications faster, scale up and down easier and better manage infrastructure and workload delivery. Dell also offers Acceleration Appliance for Databases (DAAD) for OLTP performance based on the new R930 server. These workloads were more suitable for UNIX environments in the past.

In addition to the PowerEdge R930 rack server, Dell is updating its PowerEdge VRTX and PowerEdge M1000e converged platforms, and introducing the PowerEdge FC830 and the PowerEdge M830 blade server as part of Dell’s 13th generation of PowerEdge servers. The new servers also come with Dell’s recently updated OpenManage systems management portfolio which enable new capabilities that allow IT administrators to receive higher levels of automation and monitor and remediate data center situations from a hand-held device anywhere.
