How Dell EMC aims to advance its server portfolio

03 Apr 2019

Dell EMC announced several advancements to Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, supposedly offering improved management, security, performance and scalability for customers’ every day and most demanding workloads. 

These advancements to PowerEdge servers and OpenManage systems management further enable a secure, scalable compute platform as the ideal foundation for cloud, analytics and software-defined data centre initiatives. 

Dell EMC president Ashley Gorakhpurwalla says, “As organisations rapidly keep pace with growing sets of information and data, they’re also adopting more advanced applications to generate greater insights with digital transformation efforts.

“Making the industry-leading PowerEdge server portfolio even stronger, we are enabling our customers to benefit from additional automation, control and security with more responsive and powerful systems.”

According to IDC’s latest research, Dell EMC continued to be number 1 in both x86 server revenue and units shipped globally in an industry that saw its greatest demand ever during 2018. 

The analyst firm’s research found worldwide server vendor revenues increased 12.6% year-over-year to $23.6 billion, during the fourth quarter of 2018, marking the fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit revenue growth and the all-time high for total revenue in any quarter ever. 

For x86 servers, Dell EMC has held or shared the number 1 position for revenue for six consecutive quarters and for units shipped for over the past two years.2

Dell EMC offers advanced infrastructure to tackle for more advanced workloads 

Dell EMC PowerEdge servers supposedly deliver an automated, secure and scalable platform, allowing businesses to balance operational efficiency and strategic initiatives. This supports organisations tasked with driving higher engagement with customers and meeting strict SLAs while adopting new workloads and meeting new business objectives.

Advancements to Dell EMC PowerEdge and Dell EMC OpenManage systems management offer customers more control to manage their server infrastructure and to mitigate threats, backed by a new boost in performance and scalability. 

Among the new features, the introduction of OpenManage FlexSelect Manage and FlexSelect Secure provides improved flexibility for managing and securing PowerEdge systems.
