When we discuss tech such as AI (artificial intelligence), as well as edge computing, we can come to the conclusion that it is becoming a lot more mainstream. This is due to the fact that organizations want to realize their fullest potential by enabling business transformation.
Dell is boosting its Intel EMC PowerEdge portfolio through next-generation servers.
This is a full reimagining; with 1.100 Dell-owned or filed US patents, the new servers have the promise of delivering the highest performance possible.
The Dell EMC OpenManage Enterprise PowerEdge servers, as well as systems management, offer up to 85% time savings on average and can even eliminate dozens of the steps with automation. Through optimizing all of the latest technologies from Intel and AMD, the PowerEdge servers can deliver the computation power that is required for the most crucial workloads of customers as well as applications.
In fact, the Dell EMC PowerEdge R6515 features a 3rd Generation AMD EPYC processor and it is designed to accelerate the data processing capabilities of up to 60% in big data Hadoop databases, which speeds up the time to insights. The PowerEdge R750 runs the upcoming 3rd Generation Xeon Scalable processors and promises 43% greater performance when it comes to finding solutions to parallel linear equations, which support many computational-heavy workloads as a result.
However, aside from the raw numbers and stats, you also have the implementation of PCIe Gen4.0, which can double the throughput performance over the previous generation.
This generation features up to six accelerators per server in order to support many kinds of workloads.
In fact, the PowerEdge R750xa delivers GPU-dense performance when it comes to machine learning training, interfacing as well as AI with support for NVIDIA AI Ethereum software, which is available exclusively for VMware VSphere 7 Update 2. This dual-socket, 2U server is powered y the 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and can support up to four double-wide GPUs as well as six single-wide GPUs.
You also have the PowerEdge XR11 and XR12 which are ruggedized servers that can bring enterprise performance as well as security to a durable form factor, with hardened chassis, minimal size, and support for multiple accelerators. The intel-based XR11 and XR12 short-depth servers are specifically built for the heightened workloads.

Now, another interesting aspect about them is the fact that they are purpose-built with a cyber-resilient architecture, alongside what Dell calls a well-established Silicon Root of Trust.
This new portfolio’s comprehensive approach can ensure that the PowerEdge servers remain secure throughout the entirety of their lifecycle, from the manufacturing process to deployment.
When it comes to security, they use Dell Technologies Secured Component Verification.
This is a first-of-its-kind offering for servers7 as well as an extension to Dell’s Secure Supply Chain assurance process.
This includes unique features, the most notable ones being the PowerEdge UEFI Secure Boot Customization, where boot security can be closely managed to beat any attacks or threats.
