Dell introduces new servers, targets SMBs
Company expands PowerEdge portfolio to include new entry-level rack and tower servers
Dell has announced the newest additions to its Dell PowerEdge 13th generation servers with the introduction of four new entry-level servers.
According to recent global research of IT decision makers, the top IT pain points of small and medium businesses (SMBs) around the globe include performance, hardware capacity and IT complexity. Designed with future growth in mind, the latest Dell PowerEdge servers address these specific pain points to help customers accelerate performance, adapt to changing application demands and attain greater operational efficiency.
“Dell has a long history addressing the unique needs of small and midsize customers,” said Jed Scaramella, research director, Enterprise Servers, IDC. “Dell’s mainstream server portfolio is growing, and their new entry-level PowerEdge servers will be appealing to additional SMBs around the world who are hoping to save time and money while reducing business risk.”
The new Dell PowerEdge servers include the PowerEdge R330 and R230 rack servers and the PowerEdge T330 and T130 tower servers. For the first time, Dell’s entry-level server T130 features Dell’s leading OpenManage systems management portfolio giving SMBs simple and intuitive tools that reduce deployment time by up to 40 percent and provide streamlined management.
The latest generation of entry-level PowerEdge servers
Offering large amounts of internal storage capacity, configuration flexibility, and an expandable memory footprint, the new entry-level PowerEdge servers feature up to four DDR4 memory slots and up to four or eight hard drives depending on the model. The new server line-up includes:
• Dell PowerEdge R330 – a versatile rack server ideal for small businesses, remote offices of large institutions and OEM customers who are seeking enhanced hardware availability and serviceability. The PowerEdge R330 provides up to 56 percent more internal storage capacity than the previous generation server.
• Dell PowerEdge R230 – a rack server excellent for distributed applications in SMBs, hosting companies and OEM customers. This server has 100 percent more memory capacity, three times the maximum internal storage capacity and two times the I/O expansion compared to the previous generation server.
• Dell PowerEdge T330 – an expandable, rackable tower server for SMBs and departments and remote offices of large corporations that need greater internal storage. The PowerEdge T330 is designed for future growth, with up to four DDR4 memory slots and up to eight 3.5-inch hard drives.
Dell PowerEdge T130 – a tower server for driving collaboration and productivity applications in small offices/home offices (SOHO). The PowerEdge T130 provides two times the memory capacity compared to the previous generation server.
As SMB customers prepare for future growth, the new PowerEdge servers can be combined with Dell’s end-to-end portfolio of hardware, software and services to enable operational efficiency and flexibility at any scale.
“There are over 125 million SOHO and SMB customers around the globe, and these customers operate in challenging, fast-changing environments – with most not having the luxury of a dedicated IT department. These customers require IT solutions that help them prepare for future growth, drive application performance and improve operational efficiency,” said Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, vice president and general manager, Dell Server Solutions. “Dell has been helping customers in this space achieve their goals for decades and our new entry-level PowerEdge servers have the performance, expandability and flexibility to help them do business even more efficiently.”
