Visualize the Future of Your Business Using PowerEdge Servers
- February 24, 2023
With the rapid proliferation of data, modern tools to store and process that information are a critical component to long-term success. To meet customer needs, data processing systems must work for organizations today, while also being flexible enough to address future requirements, like meeting efficiency objectives and keeping costs low.
Powerful systems like the Dell PowerEdge servers with 4th Gen AMD EPYC™ processors help enable advanced workloads like virtualization, high performance computing (HPC) and AI. Virtualization can be a tactic that allows users to consolidate workloads onto a single machine via VMware VMmark, ultimately resulting in less overall energy usage, lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and a smaller physical footprint for servers in the data center.
VMmark is a key benchmark that rates how well-suited a system is for virtualization. Dell PowerEdge servers powered by AMD EPYC processors have swept the top rankings. The next-generation Dell PowerEdge R7615, launched in November 2022, has received the top performance score for two-node one-socket servers with a score of 13.51 at 12 tiles, meaning the PowerEdge R7615 can host the highest number of virtual machines for this benchmark category. Compared to five years ago, this performance is 75% higher, hosting 33% more virtual machines. In addition, the PowerEdge R7615 also saw the top score in server power-performance, meaning the system has the best performance per kilowatt.
For customers looking to maximize efficiencies in the data center, performance is essential. As noted in the November launch, AMD-based PowerEdge servers can offer up to a 121% performance improvement, including up to 33% more front drive count for 2U servers, up to 60% higher drive front drive count for 1U servers and up to 90% higher performance per core.¹
Bringing in more powerful systems allows organizations to replace several servers in favor of one new one that not only includes greater core density, but also other sustainable design features. This includes the Smart Flow chassis design that allows for more airflow, resulting in cooler systems.
In today’s business landscape, external factors like ESG requirements and the rising price of operations shape technology purchasing decisions more intensely than ever before. Modernizing your IT infrastructure helps solve those issues at the core to help the day-to-day essentials like data gathering and processing continue as smoothly as possible.
OEM customers may enjoy our OEM-Ready or OEM XL offers with these servers. The OEM-Ready option provides an easy way to make this product your own by tailoring the bezel, BIOS and packaging to suit your needs. The OEM XL option improves lifecycle development time by providing a better control of system components. For more information, visit our Dell Technologies OEM Solutions website.
1 Based on Dell analysis of submitted SPECFPRate score of 1410 achieved on a Dell PowerEdge R7625 with AMD EPYC 9654s compared to the previous high score of 636 on a Dell PowerEdge R7525 with AMD EPYC 7763 processors as of 11/3/2022. Actual performance will vary. Storage Capacity on Dell internal analysis of available front drive slots going from a maximum of 24 drives in prior generation configurations to 32 E3.S drives config option in the latest gen 2U platforms and 10 to 16 drives for 1U platforms. Available storage will depend on configuration and drives chosen.
