Dell, Intel and Red Hat: Pushing Data Center Limits Upward
Dell PowerEdge* servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series running Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 5 deliver scalable performance, advanced reliability, and flexible virtualization, for low TCO and fast ROI.
Growth in data volumes has become the standard expectation in businesses across every industry, and at the same time, IT organizations are being asked to do more with less. Those two factors combine to create pressures that require intelligent, novel approaches to alleviate them. One positive trend in this area is the ongoing migration of business-critical applications from expensive proprietary architectures, such as UNIX* on RISC hardware, to more cost-effective open platforms, such as Linux on Intel® architecture.
With the introduction of the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series, the industry now has the means to accelerate that trend, drawing on very high scalability, performance, and a broad range of new reliability, availability, and serviceability features. To provide further business critical support, Dell PowerEdge servers deliver system-level innovation that improves on the processor platform’s capabilities and makes overall TCO all the more favorable. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the perfect OS for the solution stack, providing very high performance, scalability, and reliability for both virtualized and non-virtualized workloads.
