Dell Inc. Key Developments

Dell Inc. Introduces Three New Modules for the PowerEdge FX portfolio

Dell Inc. introduced three new modules for the PowerEdge FX portfolio to help organizations quickly configure complete workloads using modular building blocks of IT resources. By combining the density and efficiencies of blade servers with the simplicity and cost advantages of rack-based systems, the PowerEdge FX architecture has enabled customers to address changing workload demands while providing high reliability, availability and serviceability. Customers such as a large e-commerce in Asia purchased more than 10,000 of FX servers over competitive solutions, while an investment management institution headquartered in the U.S. purchased hundreds to help them run their sophisticated data analysis and trading systems to better enable their customers. Stack Overflow, an online community for programmers that allows users to exchange questions and answers to help with everyday programming needs, needed to update their existing data center to control rack space and optimize performance for an increase in web traffic. The company decided to update their infrastructure with the latest solutions from Dell including the PowerEdge FX platform. Redapt, a Dell solutions provider that delivers integration and engineering services to enterprise and hyper-scale clients, is realizing strong interest and adoption of PowerEdge FX. The Dell PowerEdge FX portfolio will include three new modules to offer enterprises even more options for changing application demands. This gives customers even more ability to add or swap IT building blocks into a 2U converged infrastructure chassis. The new building blocks include: PowerEdge FD332, a half-width storage block that provides up to 16 direct-attached small form factor (SFF) storage devices (meaning customers can provision up to 48 SFF storage devices in a 2U FX2 chassis) that enables dense, highly flexible, scale-out solutions. PowerEdge FX servers can be attached to a single FD332 or multiple FD332s, allowing customers to combine servers and storage in a wide variety of configurations to address specific processing needs. PowerEdge FC430, a quarter-width, half-height server block that has the ability to host applications in smaller, physically discrete servers to minimize the risk of system failures. With the FC430 organizations can host more than 72% more virtual desktop users in 10 times less space than Cisco UCS for better total cost of ownership. The FC430 features Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors, with up to 8 memory DIMMs and it has two versions " one with up to two 1.8-inch SATA flash drives that is ideal for mainstream enterprise workloads and distributed environments needing higher levels of reliability; and another with one 1.8-inch drive and an InfiniBand port that is ideal for applications needing lower levels of latency such as HPC and high frequency trading. PowerEdge FC830, a full-width, half-height 4-socket server block that runs a wide range of database driven, mission critical applications for midsize and large businesses. The FC830 is powered by up to four next-generation multi-core Intel Xeon processors, has 3TB of memory, up to 8 PCIe expansion slots, up to sixteen 1.8-inch SATA flash drives or eight 2.5-inch drives, a dual-port 10Gb SNA and support for Express Flash NVMe PCIe SSDs. The combination of performance and data access also makes this server ideal for large-scale virtualization or the database tier of WebTech and HPC environments. PowerEdge FX is designed with integrated management capabilities that allow customers to easily configure, manage and add capacity to complete workload-specific blocks of IT resources. Customers can choose the systems management style that best fits their needs by managing servers individually like traditional rack servers or managing collectively as many do with blade servers. The Dell PowerEdge FC430 and FD332 are available around the world. The Dell PowerEdge FC830 will be available in June 2015.

Dell Introduces Venue 10 7000 Tablet with Premium Design and Enhanced Productivity

Dell announced the Venue 10 7000, the latest tablet in its premium Android portfolio. The Venue 10 has a distinctive, razor-thin profile that is based on the same stunning design as the Venue 8 7000. The company also announced an update to Android 5.0, Lollipop on the Venue 8 7000. Now, consumers and business professionals alike have two stunning options to make a statement with their tablet. The Venue 10 7000 features a sleek, futuristic design with a barrel edge making it easy to hold and carry, or slot into the magnetic, backlit keyboard that can position the tablet in five different configurations: tablet, slate, stand, tent or clamshell modes. Users can enjoy an immersive audio experience no matter how the tablet is positioned with MaxxAudio Mobile by Waves and front-firing stereo speakers. Like the Venue 8, the Venue 10 features the best tablet display technology available present, a brilliant 10.5-inch OLED 2560x1600 screen, a quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor, and the Intel RealSense snapshot depth camera, which takes a depth map for every picture captured. The tablet also features the intuitive Dell Gallery application with selective re-focusing and measurement functions, as well as smart albums to automatically organize photos. The Venue 10 combines stunning design features with enhanced productivity for the office to provide a compelling option for the mobile workforce. Both the Venue 10 and Venue 8 will ship with Android 5.0, Lollipop, and will be enabled for Android for Work. This platform makes it possible for business and personal information to securely coexist on one device, creating a reliable method for the mobile workforce to use the tablets for work and play. Business data is separated and encrypted, so important corporate data is not accessible to personal applications. The platform leverages multi-user support in Android to create a managed profile with its own set of secure applications that can be provisioned and controlled by IT and wiped remotely without touching personal data. Dell will also be offering Office for Android on the Venue 10 and 8 7000 this summer, which will provide even more productivity and commercial capabilities on Venue Android tablets. The Venue 10 7000 starts at USD 499.00; USD 629.00 with keyboard. It will be available on Dell.com in the U.S., Canada and China in May 2015.
