The new Dell PowerEdge servers would also enable customers to:

  • Accelerate compute performance across a wide range of applications with a choice of “powerful” processors from the latest Intel Xeon E3-1200 v5 product family.
  • Drive faster response times with DDR4 delivering significant faster memory performance compared to DDR3 memory.
  • Gain insights faster with two times the data throughput made possible with PCIe Gen 3.0 slots boosting I/O performance.
  • Achieve “two times” the IOPS (input/output operations per second) performance with Dell’s “innovative, latest-generation” PERC9 RAID controller.
The Dell PowerEdge R230 server is well-suited for distributed applications in SMBs, hosting companies and OEM customers.

“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,” said Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, vice president and general manager, Dell Server Solutions. “These customers require IT solutions that help them prepare for future growth, drive application performance and improve operational efficiency. 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.”

Key features of the new entry-level PowerEdge servers include:

  • Dell PowerEdge R330 – a versatile rack server aimed at small businesses, remote offices of large institutions and OEM customers who are seeking enhanced hardware availability and serviceability. The Dell PowerEdge R330 would provide 56 percent more internal storage capacity than the previous generation server.
  • Dell PowerEdge R230 – a rack well-suited for distributed applications in SMBs, hosting companies and OEM customers. This server would have 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.
