Dell Updates to Systems Management Portfolio for the Dell PowerEdge FX2 Modular Infrastructure

Dell announced updates to the systems management portfolio for the Dell PowerEdge FX2 modular infrastructure to help customers further maximize IT productivity and business continuity. The new features enhance provisioning and infrastructure visibility, plus add support for Nagios users and open source applications. The company’s overall blade server growth is bolstered by the PowerEdge FX2, which is significantly outpacing industry blade server growth. The company has enhanced its systems management software to take advantage of the unique engineering of the company PowerEdge FX2 and is designed to simplify and automate critical hardware management tasks. New capabilities and updates enhance the user experience with improved ease of provisioning for virtualized workloads, plug-ins for Nagios users, and comprehensive infrastructure visibility and flexibility to run open source applications. This includes: OpenManage Essentials 2.2 enables fast provisioning of I/O aggregators with template-based processes that easily and uniformly replicate the assignment of vLANs during the blade port mapping process, which ensures simplicity and accuracy in network set-up. The new geographic view feature enables quick, easy location access to PowerEdge FX2 systems onsite or across the globe with manageability across 5500 devices. Additionally, seamless integration with SupportAssist [4]3 provides proactive, predictive support and automated case creation to resolve hardware issues up to 90% faster with ProSupport Plus. The new OpenManage plug-in for Nagios XI 1.0 [5] extracts detailed PowerEdge FX2 infrastructure information from the Dell Chassis Management Controller and server embedded intelligence, iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller, delivering a unified set of alerts and health monitoring details to Nagios XI administrators. As a result, customers can continue using their Nagios XI console to monitor Dell hardware without additional tools or training while achieving a higher return on their investment. New Active System Manager (ASM) 8.2 capabilities enable fast and easy on-boarding and deployment of IT services across multiple chassis, server, storage and networking devices. The port view provides a visual mapping of physical and virtual infrastructures and any connectivity issues to allow for quick troubleshooting to help IT teams maintain business continuity and deliver more consistent, reliable IT services. Additionally, a new software developer kit (SDK) simplifies creating and deploying complex applications using readily available open source modules. The PowerEdge FX2 has demonstrated triple-digit percentage growth year-over-year in unit and revenue over the previous four quarters, contributing substantially to PowerEdge blade server gains, since its launch in 2014. With the company PowerEdge FX2 and Dell systems management software, customers across 70 countries are taking advantage of the integrated building blocks of servers, storage and networking that help them achieve data center flexibility and efficiency without having to overhaul their existing infrastructure.

Dell Inc. Agrees to Pay $25 Million to Settle Lawsuit Related to Tech Giant's 2013 Leveraged Buyout

Dell Inc. has agreed to pay a major shareholder $25 million to settle a lawsuit related to the tech giant's 2013 leveraged buyout. The amount is just a fraction of what T. Rowe Price Associates Inc. stood to collect if it didn't inadvertently approve the buyout. T. Rowe Price Associates is an affiliate of T. Rowe Price Group Inc. Baltimore-based T. Rowe Price, was ruled ineligible for the appraisal process that later determined Dell shareholders were underpaid in the buyout by nearly $4 per share. T. Rowe Price would have collected $200 million in the appraisal process if it didn't mistakenly approve the $24.9 billion buyout.
