Recent breakthroughs in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have enabled technology solution providers to develop many exciting new applications. But energy efficiency and data security are growing challenges for these innovators due to the immense volume of data their applications must process to deliver results.
Recognizing that the modern data center must be ready to support the resource-intensive workloads driving today’s technological progress, Dell Technologies is expanding its best-selling server portfolio with the release of the Dell PowerEdge R760, among twelve additional next-generation Dell PowerEdge servers.
These new releases offer improved server performance and simplified
management while adding new security features and an energy-efficient design.
Top 4 Benefits of the Dell PowerEdge R760 Server
1. Improved Server Performance
The Dell PowerEdge R760 is a full-featured enterprise server designed to optimize highly demanding AI and ML workloads. As with each of the latest PowerEdge servers, the PowerEdge R760 is built on 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processors. These powerful processors include Intel Deep Learning Boost and Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions, offering accelerated performance for targeted deep learning workloads, including image classification, speech recognition, object detection, and more.
With these performance enhancements built-in, the PowerEdge R760 can also handle up to 20% more virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) users and over 50% more Sales & Distribution (SAP) users on one server than the previous generation.
2. Simplified Server Management
Dell Technologies has made server management effortless with the Dell PowerEdge R760 and its expanded line of next-generation PowerEdge servers by including a range of monitoring software enhancements and other new services.
The proactive monitoring, machine learning, and predictive analytics capabilities of Dell CloudIQhave been updated in the latest line of PowerEdge servers to help customers spend less time troubleshooting and resolve their issues quicker. These updates include advancements to server performance forecasting, select maintenance operations, and new virtualization visualization.
The Dell Remote Access Controller(iDRAC), which helps IT administrators deploy, update, and monitor PowerEdge servers anywhere at any time, has also been updated. New iDRAC features include Certificate Expiry Notice, Telemetry for Dell Consoles, and GPU monitoring.
Customers can enlist Dell ProDeploy Services and have their new PowerEdge servers delivered to the data center preconfigured and ready for installation via Dell ProDeploy Factory Configuration for an improved time to value. With Dell ProDeploy Rack Integration, certified deployment engineers can also deliver and install production-ready racked and networked PowerEdge servers.
3. Energy-Efficient Design
Sustainability was a top priority in the design of each of the next-generation Dell PowerEdge servers. So, the new Dell PowerEdge R760 is more powerful than its predecessors and more energy efficient. The Dell Smart Flow design increases airflow and reduces fan power by up to 52% more than the previous generation servers.
Organizations deploying next-generation PowerEdge servers will also have access to valuable insights into their servers’ energy consumption and be able to set power caps up to 82% faster than ever before with Dell OpenManage Enterprise Power Manager 3.0 software.
4. Built-In Security
Cybercrime is rising thanks to the expanded attack surface that comes with the growing remote work trend. Many organizations have adopted or plan to adopt a zero-trust architecture. To align with the principles of Zero Trust, the next-generation Dell PowerEdge servers operate under the assumption that every user and device is a potential threat and constantly verify access.
The servers include Dell Secured Component Verification(SCV), which offers cryptographic verification of server components, helping verify supply chain security from design to delivery. Features such as multifactor authentication and integrated iDRAC add safety by verifying users before granting access.
