Dell Unveils New PowerEdge Servers
|Dell Computer Corporation today announced redesigned servers that offer new levels of performance, reliability and aggressive pricing for customers deploying Internet and intranet infrastructures, traditional applications including mail and file/print services, as well as hosted applications by service providers.|
The PowerEdge 2550, a 2U (3.5 inch) server designed for use in racked environments, such as corporate data centers, introduces enterprise-class technology features to the fastest growing segment of the server market. The PowerEdge 2500 is a tower-based server that offers these same features plus additional expansion options for use in departments and work groups. The servers incorporate technology previously reserved for the high end of the marketplace, such as a new chipset for increased performance and embedded RAID for greater data redundancy. The PowerEdge 2550 is the first in the industry to feature embedded Gigabit Ethernet for the fastest network performance available in any class server today.
"These servers deliver critical new performance and reliability enhancements to two of our most popular products," said Don Kerr, Director Advanced Systems Group, Dell Canada. "The enhanced feature sets of these servers combined with Dell's ability to make leading server technologies more cost effective as well as the best services in the industry will continue to fuel our business, which Dell's customers helped make one of the fastest growing in the industry last year."
