Dell today announced two PowerEdge servers featuring AMD Opteron processors as part of Dell's commitment to leadership in price-performance, performance per watt and reducing complexity in customers server environments.
The Dell PowerEdge 6950 is a four-socket server designed for demanding enterprise applications such as database, server consolidation, virtualization and migration from costly RISC-based systems. Featuring AMD Opteron processors, the PowerEdge 6950 can deliver industry leading performance, eclipsing performance levels of conventional four-socket servers and consumes up to 20 percent less power than previous-generation four-socket PowerEdge servers.
The PowerEdge SC1435 is a two-socket, rack-dense server optimized for high-performance compute clusters, distributed Web serving and small- to medium-sized businesses that require leading price-performance ratio and energy conservation features. The AMD Opteron processor-based PowerEdge SC1435 can deliver performance gains of up to 128 percent and performance-per-watt improvements of up to 138 percent.
"The PowerEdge 6950 and PowerEdge SC1435 continue Dell's unwavering commitment to meet customer needs and lead the industry in price-performance and performance per watt," said Brad Anderson, senior vice president, Dell Product Group. "These servers - combined with the integration of Dell OpenManage with Oracle applications to simplify the deployment, management and monitoring of Oracle applications - deliver the solutions our customers need to reduce complexity in enterprise environments."
Marty Seyer, senior vice president of AMD's Commercial Segment, noted Dell and AMD's vision to deliver uncompromising performance-per-watt choices and complete solutions to Dell enterprise customers.
"AMD and Dell share a commitment to deliver system-wide innovation where it matters most to customers," said Seyer. "By combining Dell's world-class product design, service and support with the performance-per-watt benefits of AMD Opteron processors and open innovation platform enabled by the AMD Torrenza initiative, customers have the right tools for addressing specific workload needs and applications while reducing total cost of ownership."
