Reliability: Intel® Xeon® Processors on Dell PowerEdge* Servers
Over the past decade, successful companies have increasingly turned to Dell PowerEdge* Servers featuring Intel® Xeon® processors to support their mission-critical workloads, including database, enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer resource management (CRM), virtualization, and business intelligence applications. The proven capability and reliability of Dell PowerEdge Servers, combined with their unparalleled flexibility, have helped these companies stay at the forefront of technology, reduce total costs, and compete more effectively in today’s challenging business environment.
The latest Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 and 6500 series can be expected to dramatically accelerate this trend. Four-socket servers based on this new processor family deliver the greatest performance and scalability increase ever for a new Intel Xeon processor generation. They also provide advanced support for 24/7 computing environments with abundant new reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features. (The Intel® Xeon® processor 6500 series offers similar robust capabilities for the PowerEdge R810 rack server and the PowerEdge M910 blade server in two-socket configurations.)
• Superior data integrity with advanced support for error detection, correction, and containment across all major components and communication pathways.
• Improved system availability with multiple levels of redundancy, plus OS-assisted system recovery from certain uncorrectable errors that would have brought down previous-generation servers.
• Enhanced serviceability with predictive failure analysis that enables problematic components to be identified and replaced before they fail.
For anyone looking to optimize performance, scalability, reliability, and value for core business solutions, Intel Xeon processor 7500 series-based servers offer an essential new resource.
