Dell has unveiled two servers designed to reduce overall power consumption and deliver improvements in performance per watt for enterprise customers.
Dell’s PowerEdge 2970 and PowerEdge Energy Smart 2970 will be equipped with the new Dual Dynamic Power Management feature, ready to enable optimised quad-core performance and power management.
Both servers are designed to handle multiple generations of AMD Opteron processors, providing an upgrade path to quad-core and allowing customers to increase computing capacity.
The PowerEdge 2970 is engineered to draw up to 34% less power, and deliver up to 105% greater performance per watt over the previous generation of Dell servers featuring dual-core processors, said Dell.
Jay Parker, director of Dell PowerEdge Servers, said “We’re committed to help with comprehensive offerings that reduce total cost of ownership through virtualisation, energy efficiency and accelerating multi-core adoption.”
The Dell PowerEdge 2970 is now available, starting at £1,000. The PowerEdge Energy Smart 2970 will be available in the coming weeks.
