Dell Technologies (NYSE:DELL) announces the next generation of Dell PowerEdge servers with 4th Generation AMD EPYC processors. With their highest application performance to date, these new systems are designed to help customers more effectively power today’s demanding, compute-centric workloads such as data analytics.
Designed for efficiency and security in mind, the new PowerEdge Servers are equipped with Dell’s Smart Cooling technology to help reduce CO2 emissions and a built-in cyber resilient architecture to help reinforce customers’ security efforts.
“Customers demand uncompromised compute performance delivered in the most sustainable manner possible. Our latest PowerEdge servers are purpose built-to meet the needs of today’s demanding workloads with efficiency and resiliency,” said Rajesh Pohani, vice president of portfolio and product management for PowerEdge, HPC and Core Compute at Dell Technologies. “With up to double the performance of the previous generation, combined with the latest in power and cooling innovations, these servers are designed to meet the growing demands of our customers.”
The next generation of Dell PowerEdge servers with 4th generation AMD EPYC processors provides performance and storage advancements while integrating into existing customer environments. The servers are well-suited for organizations with advanced workloads such as data analytics, AI, high performance computing (HPC) and virtualization.
Available in one- and two-socket configurations, with support for as much as 50% more processor cores compared to the previous generation, the latest systems offer the highest performance to date for AMD-powered PowerEdge servers.1 Customers can expect up to a 121% performance improvement, up to 33% more front drive count for 2U servers and up to 60% higher front drive count for 1U servers.2
• PowerEdge R7625 offers increased application performance and data storage. With the performance of dual 4th generation AMD EPYC processors, this server is designed to be the backbone of a data center. This 2-socket, 2U platform has proven to accelerate in-memory databases by over 72% surpassing all other 2- and 4-socket SAP Sales & Distributions submissions, achieving a new world record.3
• PowerEdge R7615 is a one-socket, 2U server with a faster memory bandwidth than previous generations. Improved drive density is designed to complete multiple jobs faster with a smaller data center footprint. This platform accelerates AI workloads with maximum accelerated expansion capabilities, achieving an AI benchmark world record.4
• PowerEdge R6625 is a two-socket, 1U server delivering the optimal balance in performance, flexibility and density. The system is suited for HPC workloads or running multiple virtual desktop infrastructure instances.
“Like many, we follow the CPU market carefully and look forward to seeing the next generation PowerEdge servers accelerate our potential,” said Dr. Matthew Storey, head of Storage and Virtualization at Lancaster University.
