Following up on the highly praised Dell PowerEdge 12th Generation Server launch announced on February 27th 2012, today Dell announced the second wave of the new line of PowerEdge Servers which include performance and density minded 4 socket systems (Dell PowerEdge R820 and M820), as well as a line of value oriented 2 and 1 socket server systems.
These new servers carry over the same great feature set as the initial 12th Generation PowerEdge launch systems such as Dell Express Flash PCIe SSD drives, improved acoustics, advanced RAS redundancy features, Enterprise Class Systems Management with iDRAC7 and OpenManage Essentials, Fresh-Air cooling technology, internal support for GPUs, improved power efficiency, the Quick Resource Locator guide, and Redundant SD Cards for your hypervisors. This new launch provides additional options to suit customer needs no matter what size business you are supporting.
The servers that we announced today include:
Rack Servers - Dell 12th Generation PowerEdge Servers
Blades - Dell 12th Generation PowerEdge Servers
Tower - Dell 12th Generation PowerEdge Servers
Personally I'm most excited about the M420 for it's innovative form factor and extreme density. You can fit 32 these 2 socket servers in one M1000e for a total of 64 sockets in a single chassis! Even at that density you still get the systems management benefits of the iDRAC7 with Lifecycle controller and mirrored SD flash for redundant hypervisors. You can also fit two 1.8" SSD drives in each M420 blade as well.
