Dell enhances enterprise solution portfolio with PowerEdge Servers
Dell today announced a portfolio of blade, rack and tower PowerEdge servers optimized for use in enterprise environments. These new server series are designed to help small businesses to hyper-scale data centers maximize efficiency by streamlining and automating operations. The new PowerEdge R820, R720, R720xd and R620 rack servers, the M620 blade server, the T620 tower server and C6220 are based on a shared Dell infrastructure server built on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 product family. New capabilities include over 400 sensors, including memory, RAID, storage and network devices, in multivendor operating system and hypervisor environments without installing software agents or drivers. Dell also announced OpenManage Essentials, a new management console, which monitors the health of Dell servers, storage and switches. By interfacing with the Dell KACE K1000 Management Appliance, OpenManage Essentials sends user-defined server, storage and network health status alerts to the K1000 service desk.
