New Dell EMC PowerEdge: Bedrock of the Modern Data Center

first_imgTo transform your business, you need to transform your IT. We are seeing it happen with companies like Express Scripts and the Chicago Cubs. When you accelerate innovation adoption, you drive real results in your business. Maybe you have been waiting for a secure, scalable, and automated platform to do it. Today, it’s finally here.We are announcing our most sophisticated lineup of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, ever. They have a ton of new features a modern data center needs. As you plan your future and think about new ways to power your business, our new PowerEdge servers will be your bedrock.How we got hereWe started the process three years ago. With the dramatic pace workloads were evolving, we knew we needed a game changer. We knew we had to build an entirely new portfolio of server platforms. So, we engaged with more customers than ever before and integrated them into our process. It’s all part of our Customer Inspired Design. We asked, “What are your goals and how can we help you achieve them?” We heard you when you said that your legacy data center technology was inflexible to support new workloads and deployment models. We listened when you told us that your IT teams were spending too much time on routine tasks. And we understood when you said security means everything.We then unleashed some of the best engineers in the world to develop the technology to reach your goals. We created servers with cutting-edge technology never seen before. These new servers will power the business initiatives you know about today, but be flexible enough for the ones you haven’t even imagined yet.Scalable Business ArchitectureThe potential to transform your infrastructure for modern workloads and the cloud is an exciting challenge, but full of complexity. The reality is that each workload has different characteristics, and a platform that can deliver outputs faster can be the source of your competitive advantage and superior customer experience. Features such as one-click BIOS tuning are essential to optimizing workloads. So we simply built it in. The new PowerEdge portfolio also includes a broad-array of modern infrastructure with enhanced storage capacity and flexibility so you can tailor your storage configurations for the application. For instance, there’s 19x more non-volatile memory express (NVMe) low latency storage than our prior generation. And our exclusive I/O expansion risers and PERC PCIe flexibility in the new R740 provide 16 lanes to maximize accelerator configurations.Intelligent AutomationWe know you want to automate. Some of our customers tell us that IT nirvana would be a self-serve model for their developers. The new PowerEdge servers help you eliminate that inefficiency with intelligent automation. It starts by taking a fundamentally different approach to server management called agent-free management. Installing agents into each operating system adds a lot of complexity. We remove that complexity by using an embedded chip in every PowerEdge server we call iDRAC. This is the brains behind our management and automation features, and we upgraded it in the latest generation of PowerEdge for more performance. There are hundreds of new features and systems management innovations. Some are around the new user interface. Some are around Open APIs such as RESTful API’s. Some help you deploy faster. Some help you manage better. Some even help you automate problem resolution. Whether you use the unified server management experience of our new OpenManage Enterprise software, a 3rd party application, or Open APIs, you can automate productivity and simplify lifecycle management from server deployment to retirement.Integrated SecurityWe know how important security is in your overall environment. Protecting both hardware and software is critical. That’s why every new PowerEdge server is designed on a cyber-resilient architecture. We have patented key features so you can protect your infrastructure with a deep layer of defense, detect quickly if breached, and recover rapidly to a trusted baseline. Industry-first features like System Lockdown protect your server configuration and firmware from malicious or even inadvertent changes. Drift detection monitors and reports unplanned drift in firmware or configuration from a golden baseline. And our cyber-resilient BIOS recovery restores configuration quickly and safely. And when it’s time to retire and re-provision, System Erase securely and instantly erases storage media. Plus, PowerEdge is the only server with end-to-end server ecosystem and lifecycle security, which provides an additional layer of protection with supply chain integrity and assurance.Over the coming months you will certainly hear more about the new PowerEdge servers. We invite you to learn more and see why our scalable business architecture, intelligent automation, and integrated security makes PowerEdge the bedrock of the modern data center.last_img read more

USSOUTHCOM Organizes Conference on Interoperability to Counter Illicit Trafficking

first_imgBy Dialogo July 15, 2011 “Illicit-trafficking is a shared threat and a shared responsibility,” said Ambassador Paul A. Trivelli, Civilian Deputy to the Commander and Foreign Policy Advisor (POLAD) at USSOUTHCOM, during closing remarks. “The only way for us to overcome this challenge is through the joint efforts and cooperation of all partner nations, and that is why we are here today,” Amb. Trivelli concluded. With the objective of strengthening shared operations against illicit trafficking, around 200 representatives from 30 countries attended the Coast Guard Operations Centers and Aviation Commanders Regional Interoperability Conference, held at the Conference Center of the Americas at the U.S. Southern Command (USSOUTHCOM), in Miami, Florida. For the first time in USSOUTHCOM’s area of focus, elements of the Joint Interagency Task Force-South (JIATF-S) and the Coast Guard came together at a meeting to promote security cooperation, interoperability, and the exchange of information among the nations participating in the Cooperating Nations Information Exchange System (CNIES). During the five days of sessions, representatives from the operations centers of Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Mexico, among others, described their experiences with regard to new threats, tactics, and lessons learned. The conference agenda also included workshops, panel discussions, and networking opportunities among the attendees. “The most important part of this conference is the opportunity to bring together in one place all the people from U.S. joint, interagency and multinational partners coming from 30 countries, for the purpose of discussing operations”, said JIATF-S Cmdr. Edwin D. Kaiser. This is great news for the Americas. “The key piece of the joint efforts against illicit trafficking is the air support, and that’s why the presence of the air commanders here is key, as well as that of members of the Customs and Border Protection,” added Cmdr. Kaiser. JIATF-S experts took advantage of the forum to explain all the possibilities offered by the CNIES and to listen to recommendations that may contribute to strengthening its utility. Through CNIES, the member countries have the possibility of sharing information from radars monitoring air and maritime traffic information that, combined with regional and national data, facilitates the detection and halting of illicit trafficking operations. The Coast Guard Operations Centers and Aviation Commanders Regional Interoperability Conference concluded on 15 July with a summary of the reports by the participating groups and the elaboration of a consensus document and an action plan for the next meeting. last_img read more
