Data is collected and used everywhere today. As enterprise IT organizations strategically plan to support this new business requirement, the edge and the cloud have become increasingly popular. And while many organizations have sourced or migrated functions to the cloud, recent rationalization efforts have found that most enterprise organizations have a balance between on-premises and public cloud services – specifically, a hybrid, multi-cloud strategy.
Enterprise organizations require a cloud operating model that is consumption-based and agile. The business needs development environments, data management, and analytics in an "as-a-Service" model. To support this requirement, IT requires highly performing server platforms capable of supporting the most demanding workloads. These platforms must not only be performant, but secure, cost-effective, and easily managed. Server infrastructure is the critical cornerstone of the modern datacenter. This means it is ultracritical to the customer IT executive who is measured on the infrastructure’s responsiveness to the business.
Your customer’s workloads and applications running in the modern datacenter are diverse. Lightweight, highly distributed workloads such as cloud-native containerized applications can run in a “scale-out” kind of fashion, whereas more resource-hungry workloads and applications get more benefit from servers that are more resource-rich. Those resources may be CPUs (sockets) to support processing more data faster, memory capacity for large data footprints, accelerators to offload processing needs, storage for data locality, or some combination of them all.
Dell PowerEdge 4-socket server platforms deliver for your customers on these new demands
While many business users and IT organizations associate "cloud" with commoditized, scale-out server farms, the resources needed to transform seemingly infinite amounts of historical data are anything but commoditized. The ever-growing and ever-diverse needs of the digital business require a complementary compute platform. The Dell PowerEdge 4-socket server platforms can deliver the right resources of compute, memory, storage, and acceleration, along with the balance between these resources to help the enterprise achieve outcomes faster.
Established and emerging workloads, from traditional databases and HPC to emerging workloads such as AI/ML and data analytics, benefit from the richness of resources and proximity of data to compute. This richness of resources for mission- and business- critical operations can only be delivered by a 4-socket server. These are the very workloads that are driving the customer enterprise and delivering on your customers’ desired business outcomes.
Future-proof your customers’ data centers
Simply put, the 4-socket server has become the building block of the digitally transformed business that is driven by data and designed for the future. It is for this reason that Dell has become an established player in the datacenter. With their industry leading 4-socket portfolio they are well-aligned to accommodate these varied, and sometimes even competing, workload characteristics. Dell has smartly designed and mapped their portfolio to meet the needs of the workloads that power the datacenter. And smart solution providers recognize that the emerging workloads of today will be mainstream workloads tomorrow. As such, they are being proactive in recommending 4-socket server solutions for their customers.
