In May we first heard of the new generation of PowerEdge servers coming from Dell EMC after achieving the amazing milestone of selling the most Dell EMC PowerEdge servers than any other vendor in the world for 2 quarters in a row. AMD released their new EPYC Processor, designed specifically for the enterprise space and working with Dell EMC they’re bringing us the transformed new generation of PowerEdge servers.
According to Dell EMC “As you begin your digital transformation in cloud, mobility, IoT, virtualization, and software-defined deployments, you face workloads that are radically different from those you faced just five years ago. As you invest in the future of your data center, you require a server architecture with exceptional ability to support modern workloads and scale to unpredictable demands.” That is why the high PCIe lane count of the new AMD EPYC and its ability to support up to 24 NVMe devices out of a single processor makes it possible to offer some truly unique server innovation in software-defined storage and big data/data analytics at an outstanding TCO.
Nowadays we live in the era where technology is evolving and moving forwards so fast that threats to customer data have never been higher. This is why in order to create a deep foundation for a trusted environment, the security needs to be built directly into the ”DNA” of the hardware and for that reason, Dell’s new generation of servers have integrated security into every aspect of the server’s life cycle. “This includes patented security features that ensure your server is secure from the time we build it to configuration, operation, and ultimately decommissioning,” Dell EMC reveals and thanks to AMD’s EPYC processor they have included Boot-Safe and Run-Safe technologies level of encryption in virtualized and cloud environments in completely new grounds.
