With the current economic times, Dell hopes to free its customers from expensive and patent technology. The company introduces an efficient enterprise computing portfolio which includes 14 new enterprise products, new blades, servers, workstations, new enterprise-class storage hardware and other new software and services.
The overall aim of the new offerings from Dell is to lower the cost and complexity of customers by delivering cost-efficient and simplified management. Through top-class virtualization and innovative designs, Dell also hopes to set standards in performance and energy efficiency.
Customers can now look forward to the new 11th generation PowerEdge servers and Precision workstations. The novel devices have their core on the next generation Intel Xeon processors which deliver high-performance along with great management and thermal capabilities. Through the embedded Lifecycle Controller, the new servers allow built-in manageability via a single access point.
While the entire PowerEdge family promises optimal virtualization along with system management and usability capabilities, the PowerEdge R710 in particular offers the industry leading per watt performance. Also the company’s M-series blade structure now comes with a 27% lowered acquisition cost while delivering 17% lowered TCO over a period of 5 years per rack as against the HP c-class.
Sameer Garde, Country General Manager, Dell India, commented, “Today’s economic realities are placing a premium on value and efficiency from technology. Today we are unlocking customers from proprietary technology and services, and yesterday’s IT economics. Whether through next generation blades with onboard systems management, or modular services, we’re putting them on the path to today’s Efficient Enterprise.”
Brad Anderson, senior vice president, Dell Enterprise Product Group further added, “The entire value proposition of business technology has changed. Businesses no longer have to choose between tackling growing compute demands and keeping costs low. Dell’s new suite of servers, workstations, storage, software and services offers the whole package: powerful, efficient and affordable infrastructure products with simple tools to manage them without the need for costly services engagements.”
Speaking of the Dell ImageDirect server, it is designed to simplify the process of image management and transitions. Allowing companies to develop and manage server images effortlessly, they can also be factory-installed thus reducing the time consumed due to manual configurations. As for the new Dell Precision T7500, T5500 and T3500 tower workstations, they offer a wide set of ISV certifications. Specifically built for fields like engineering, entertainment, biosciences and media, a few configurations of the workstations have also been certified Energy Star 5.0.
