Dell debuts ‘world’s most powerful 1U rack workstation’ – Microsoft 365 Blog

Dell delivers compact solutions that pack a punch, including a 1U rack workstation and towers starting at $649.

Companies of all sizes and budgets looking for powerful, affordable, compact industry-leading workstations now have new choices for their needs from Dell, including the world’s most powerful 1U rack workstation.¹

The Dell Precision 3930 Rack delivers powerful performance in a compact industrial footprint. Its 1U rack height delivers better rack density and extended operating temperatures, while features such as its short depth, dust filters, and legacy ports allow it to integrate seamlessly into complex medical imaging and industrial automation solutions.

Other features include:

  • The rack workstation provides up to 64 GB of 2666MHz DDR4 memory thanks to the introduction of Intel Xeon E processors and an 8th Generation Intel Core CPU.
  • The Intel Xeon E processor supports Error Correcting Code (ECC) for increased reliability.
  • The rack workstation offers best-in-class workstation performance and provides the flexibility of up to 250W of doublewide GPUs, and scalability with up to 24 TB of storage.
  • With 3 PCIe slots, including an optional PCI slot, this workstation can tackle complex tasks with ease.
  • A range of NVIDIA Quadro professional GPUs are available. With the Quadro P6000, users benefit from 24GB of GDDR5X and powerful ultra-high-end graphics performance.
  • In addition, customers have the option to choose AMD Radeon Pro graphics.

If your company is looking for versatile, secure, and fast remote 1:1 user access, you can add optional Teradici PCOIP technology. The rack workstation effortlessly integrates into the datacenter, which helps reduce clutter at your desk.

A smaller footprint that doesn’t skimp on performance

Going small can lead to big things, so Dell has built these new entry-level workstations to fuel the future of innovation across engineering design, science, mathematics, and other data- and graphics-intensive fields. Running a highly powerful machine no longer requires having a large work space or a large budget, making this level of performance available to many companies and workers for the first time.

“Customers across Engineering & Manufacturing, Media & Entertainment, and beyond have come to rely on Dell workstations to deliver the highest performing systems for their critical workload. But as we enter the next era of workstations, the conversation is accelerating to immersive workflows utilizing even smaller footprints. Dell is leading the way in this evolution with these new entry-level workstations designed to deliver the ultimate in performance with a substantially smaller footprint,” says Rahul Tikoo, vice president and general manager of Dell Precision. “When access to leading technology improves, innovation flourishes. Sometimes something as simple as a smaller form factor can unleash new ideas and capabilities that have the power to reshape an industry.”

The Dell Precision 3630 Tower is 23 percent smaller² than the previous generation with more expandability, so workers can get the precise solution they need regardless of workspace constraints. It features a range of easy-to-reach ports that make it possible to connect to external data sources, storage devices, and more. It offers scalable storage featuring SATA and PCIe NVMe SSDs, which can be configured for up to 14 TB with RAID support.

As workstation users often create intellectual property, Dell will also offer an optional Smart Card (CAC/PIV) reader to make secure data management easier.

If you’re interested in creating or enjoying VR experiences and other resource-intensive tasks, this workstation is a good choice, thanks to an 8th Generation Intel Core i and new professional-grade Xeon E processors with faster memory speeds up to 2666MHz 64 GB. It also offers up to 225W of NVIDIA Quadro and AMD Radeon Pro graphics support.

The new Dell Precision 3430 Small Form Factor Tower is a great fit for many workstation users, offering many of the same benefits as the Precision 3630, but in an even smaller form factor and up to 55W of graphics support. It’s also expandable with up to 6TB of storage with RAID support.

Dell also introduced support for Intel Core Xseries processors in addition to the Intel Xeon W processor options already available on the Dell Precision 5820 Tower. These new processor options bring the enhanced performance and reliability of a workstation at a more affordable price point for customers.

Adding Intel Optane memory keeps responsiveness high and high-capacity storage costs lower on all these new Dell Precision 3000 series workstations. Customers can expect the same build quality and reliability of the Dell Precision line.

Available now: The Dell Precision 3430 Small Form Factor Tower and the Dell Precision 3630 Tower (both starting at $649) and the Dell Precision 5820 Tower workstation.

Available worldwide July 26, 2018: The Dell Precision 3930 Rack, which starts at $899.

¹When equipped with Intel Xeon E-2186G processor, available 64GB of 2666MHz memory capacity, NVIDIA P6000 graphics and 2xM.2PCIe storage. Based on Dell internal analysis of competitive workstation products as of July 2018.

HPE aims new SimpliVity HCI at edge computing

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has introduced a compact hyper-converged infrastructure system destined for running IoT applications at the network’s edge.

HPE unveiled the SimpliVity 2600 this week, calling the device the “first software-optimized offering” in the SimpliVity HCI line. The 2U system is initially built to run a virtual desktop system, but its size and computing power makes it “ideal for edge computing applications,” said Lee Doyle, the principal analyst at Doyle Research, based in Wellesley, Mass.

Thomas Goepel, the director of product management at HPE, said the company would eventually market the SimpliVity 2600 for IoT and general-purpose applications that require a smallish system with a dense virtualized environment.

As virtual desktop infrastructure, the SimpliVity 2600 provides a scale-out architecture that lets companies increase compute, memory and storage as needed. The system also has a built-in backup and disaster recovery for desktop operations.

Intel Xeon processors with 22 cores each power the SimpliVity 2600, which supports up to 768 GB of memory. Hardware features include a redundant power supply, hot-pluggable solid-state drives, cluster expansion without downtime and an integrated storage controller with a battery-backed cache. The system also has a 10 GbE network interface card.

HPE’s planned Plexxi integration

HPE’s SimpliVity HCI portfolio stems from last year’s $650 million purchase of HCI vendor SimpliVity Corp. The acquired company’s technology for data deduplication and compression was a significant attraction for HPE, analysts said.

HPE has said it will eventually incorporate in its SimpliVity HCI systems the hyper-converged networking (HCN) technology of Plexxi. HPE announced its acquisition of Plexxi in May but did not disclose financial details.

“[An] HPE SimpliVity with Plexxi solution is on the roadmap,” Goepel said. He did not provide a timetable.

Plexxi’s HCN software enables a software-based networking fabric that runs on Broadcom-powered white box switches. Companies can use VMware’s vCenter dashboard to orchestrate virtual machines in a Plexxi HCI system. Plexxi software can also detect and monitor VMware NSX components attached to the fabric.
