Dell Technologies announced new solutions to help the company's customers adjust to the changing nature of data and help capture the time-sensitive value of the devices at the edge.
Dell's new offerings include new edge server designs, smaller modular data centers, enhanced telemetry management and a streaming analytics engine.
Dell EMC PowerEdge XE2420 server
The new Dell EMC PowerEdge XE2420 is a compact server designed for space-constrained and challenging operating conditions often encountered in edge deployments.
The Dell EMC PowerEdge XE2420 provides a low-latency, two-socket system with the flexibility to add up to four accelerators and 92TB of storage per server. Designed for tough environments, it has Network Equipment-Building System certification with extended operating temperature tolerance and an optional filtered bezel for dusty locations. Front-accessible input/output and power provide easy access for field serviceability.
Dell EMC Modular Data Center Micro 415
This smaller Dell EMC Modular Data Center Micro 415 (MDC Micro) offers pre-integrated, enterprise-level data center IT, power, cooling and remote management in a size shorter and narrower than a parking spot. The MDC Micro provides enhanced physical protection for IT equipment at the edge with extreme temperature-resistant enclosures, key lock doors and option for smoke detection and fire suppression.
Dell EMC iDRAC9 Datacenter software
The new Dell Remote Access Controller, iDRAC 9 Datacenter, embedded management technology adds streaming data analytics capabilities critical for understanding edge operations to all Dell EMC PowerEdge servers. Its remote deployment capability can reduce administrator-attended time by up to 99.1% per server after initial setup compared to manual deployment. With streaming telemetry on iDRAC9, Dell's customers can discover trends, fine tune operations, and create predictive analytics to help ensure peak performance, reduce downtime and prevent risk.
Dell EMC Streaming Data Platform
The new Dell EMC Streaming Data Platform allows for ingestion and analysis of streaming data from the edge.
This platform delivers a single solution for all data (whether streaming or not) that provides auto-scaling ingestion, tiered storage with historical recall on-demand and unified analytics for both real-time and historical business insights.
