Springing surprises into the new year
- January 31, 2020
Dell Technologies designs its portfolio of servers to make our customers’ lives easier. We believe that providing strong infrastructure solutions allows our customers to focus on building their best business. By following this philosophy, our customers have made PowerEdge the #1 selling of server in the world.
Back in October, we revealed the five groundbreaking servers in our new high-performance Dell EMC PowerEdge with AMD portfolio. Dell Technologies is delighted to announce the PowerEdge R7525 with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC will begin shipping on February 18th. The surprises don’t stop here. Dell Technologies and AMD will have more news on February 18th for the R7525 as well as the R6515, R7515, R6525, and C6525.
With the launch of the PowerEdge R7525, Dell Technologies has a complete rack portfolio of AMD-based servers, which can handle any workload requirements. The R7525 provides powerful performance in its highly flexible 2U rack. To handle workloads like data analytics, all flash software defined storage, and VDI, the dual socket server has configurations of up to 8x Gen4 PCIe, 6x single-wide accelerators, and 24x NVMe direct. The R7525 packs unprecedented performance.
Dell Technologies is currently running benchmarks for the R7525 on SAP SD users, VDI and Sparkbench, with results coming shortly. We are confident that the R7525 will share similar success in benchmarking as our other PowerEdge with AMD servers. A production level R6525 completed a world record performance of 62,500 SAP SD users. In addition, the R7515 has 8 world records filed on TPCx – HS V2, including the best price per tpsV.
We would like to thank our customers for their patience on this journey to complete our PowerEdge with AMD portfolio. As with every PowerEdge, these five new servers come ready with the OpenManage portfolio, integrated security, and our best in class services.
