With the ongoing proliferation of data, modern solutions that store and process this data are critical components to customers’ long-term business success. To address these new customer needs, data processing systems must not just work for organizations today, but also need to be flexible enough to address future requirements such as efficiency objectives, ESG mandates and maintaining cost savings.
How purpose-built servers can help the cause
In today’s business landscape, external factors like ESG requirements and the rising price of operations shape technology purchasing decisions more purposefully than ever before. Modernizing your customers’ IT infrastructure helps solve these core issues and helps the day-to-day essentials like data gathering and information processing to continue as smoothly as possible.
One preferred approach to this is to bring in more powerful systems, thereby allowing customer organizations to replace several servers in favor of one new server. This not only includes greater core density, but also other sustainable design features. Most notably, this includes the Smart Flow chassis design that allows for more airflow, resulting in cooler systems.
The simple fact is for customers looking to maximize efficiencies in the data center, performance is absolutely essential. In this regard, 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.
Consolidation offers multiple benefits
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 is a tried and true tactic that allows users to consolidate workloads onto a single machine via VMware VMmark. This ultimately results in less overall energy usage, lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and a smaller physical footprint for servers in the data center.
VMark explained
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.
Start the server consolidation discussion with customers today
There is no time like the present time. Next-generation Dell PowerEdge servers with 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors including the Dell PowerEdge R7625, PowerEdge R7615, PowerEdge R6625 and PowerEdge R6615 are available now.
