ITBusinessEdge: New Dell PowerEdge Servers For SMBs

The new models, the PowerEdge R415 and R515, are powered by dual-socket AMD processors and designed for SMB applications such as e-mail and virtualization.

“Dell has announced the addition of two new PowerEdge servers to its SMB lineup, which comes on the back of HP’s recent launch of its own small business-centric MicroServer. And no wonder that hardware manufacturers are scrambling to expand their portfolio of SMB products. Gartner has estimated that SMBs around the world are poised to spend $856 billion on IT this year, a figure expected to exceed $1 trillion by 2014.

In this instance, both the PowerEdge R415 and R515 are dual-socket servers powered by Opteron 4100 processors from Advanced Micro Devices. Brian Payne, director of server product management at Dell, explained that they were designed to bring enterprise-level capabilities to SMBs while being easy to afford and manage. To that end, both newly launched servers come with redundant power supplies and hot-swap hard disks.”
