Dell EMC Adds AMD EPYC™ Processors to the World’s Bestselling Server

first_imgFor the second quarter in a row, we’ve sold more Dell EMC PowerEdge servers than any other vendor in the world*. This is a historic milestone for us and we’re excited that you’ve made PowerEdge servers such an integral part of your digital transformation.In May, Dell EMC announced the next generation of PowerEdge servers. Today, we’re excited to be working with AMD with the release of their new EPYC™ processor designed specifically for the enterprise space.Scalable Business ArchitectureAs you begin your digital transformation in cloud, mobility, IoT, virtualization, and software defined deployments, you face workloads that are radically different from those you faced just five years ago. As you invest in the future of your data center, you require a server architecture with exceptional ability to support modern workloads and scale to unpredictable demands. New Dell EMC PowerEdge servers provide flexible configurations to support these new workloads. With the high PCIe lane count (128 lanes) of the new AMD EPYC and its ability to support up to 24 NVMe devices out of a single processor, we now offer some truly unique server innovation in software defined storage and big data/data analytics at an outstanding TCO.Intelligent AutomationAs your IT environment becomes more complex, automation is now more of a necessity than a luxury. A recent CIO report revealed ‘skills gaps’ being more pronounced than ever in their employees, primarily due to a steep learning curve. They want to spend less time administering their hardware and more time with innovative programs that drive new revenue streams. Our goal is to develop a “self-driving” server” offering automated deployment, updating, monitoring, and maintenance. We call this “intelligent automation.”  New PowerEdge servers are intelligent enough to determine how they should be configured, how to recognize when something is wrong, and how to proactively get support. Furthermore, they are intelligent enough to protect the entire system from threats, detect and prevent potential security violations, and restore the server to a known trusted state.Integrated SecurityThreats to customer data have never been higher. Malicious exploits come not only from outside the IT infrastructure but through malware spreading from inside. Your security needs to be built directly into the DNA of the hardware to give you a deep foundation for a trusted environment. That’s why we’ve integrate security into every aspect of the server lifecycle. This includes patented security features that ensure your server is secure from the time we build it to configuration, operation, and ultimately decommissioning. AMD EPYC complements the integrated security in PowerEdge servers by including Boot-Safe and Run-Safe technologies for a heightened level of encryption in virtualized and cloud environmentsDell EMC welcomes AMD’s re-entry into the enterprise space by making the EPYC processor a part of our PowerEdge server technology. We’re excited to make this technology available to you in the second half of 2017.*IDC declares a statistical tie in the worldwide server market when there is a difference of one percent or less in the share of revenues or shipments among two or more vendors.

Bellamy’s ‘reputation’ to blame

first_img “You look at what they did not give Toure and what they did with Craig and you are not happy with it, you are very disappointed and as I said I think his reputation has gone before him.” Solskjaer’s frustrations were added to by his side’s failure to turn first-half domination into goals against Villa. The Bluebirds hit the woodwork through Fraizer Campbell and a deflected Craig Noone strike, and they were ultimately indebted to two superb saves by David Marshall – from Fabien Delph and Andreas Weimann respectively – to preserve a point. The result does little for the Welsh club’s survival prospects and they remain 19th, effectively three points from safety due to their poor goal difference. Solskjaer said: “We didn’t take our chances, did we? “The performance was fantastic and we created big opportunities. Brad Guzan made a good save from Fraizer, we hit the crossbar. “There are no complaints but when you are in the situation we are in it is one of those games where you want to be one or two up at least.” Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was content with a point which moved his side five clear of the drop zone, which is valuable breathing space in a tightly-packed bottom half. But the Scot felt his side should have taken more from the game given the chances missed by Delph, Weimann, Gabriel Agbonlahor, Leandro Bacuna and Christian Benteke during the final 30 minutes. “I am frustrated. I thought in the second half we had enough chances to win it and Marshall, who I knew up at Celtic, has kept them in it, he has made two world class saves,” he said. “I thought Leo should have scored, I thought Gaby should have scored and I thought Christian should have had a shot instead of trying to pass it. “But Cardiff have beaten some really good teams here. Ole has a good side after taking over from Malky and it is a hard place to come, although I still think we should have won the game.” Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks Craig Bellamy’s reputation earned him a three-match ban for violent conduct and not the incident itself. The veteran forward missed Tuesday’s goalless draw with Aston Villa after club and player “reluctantly” opted not to contest the FA charge for striking Swansea midfielder Jonathan de Guzman with his arm during Saturday’s south Wales derby. Bellamy will also miss the FA Cup clash with holders Wigan and the crucial Premier League meeting with Hull. The incident was missed by referee Andre Marriner and his team of officials at the time, but it was reviewed by a three-man panel of former elite referees who unanimously agreed it constituted violent conduct. Meanwhile, Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure escaped punishment after kicking Norwich striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel at Carrow Road. Solskjaer believes former Wales’ forward Bellamy’s reputation has seen him unfairly punished. “Everyone can see there is a big difference in the decisions (on Bellamy and Toure) one has got three games and one has got away from it,” said the Norwegian. “I don’t want to talk about it too much but I think Craig’s reputation has gone before him. “But when you see him in training, even in games he is such a top professional. “It is a little collision, there is no violence in it, but we just have to accept it, we don’t want it dragging on. Craig just wants to stay fit and be ready for the Spurs game. “We did not feel it was the right decision, I’m sure the referee saw it. Press Associationlast_img read more
