Dell upgrades enterprise servers, storage

Systems management software now integrated into hardware

Dell has released fourteen new products in a significant refresh of its enterprise server, workstation and storage systems portfolio.

The company's flagship PowerEdge server has reached its eleventh generation and, like the Precision workstations, is based on the next generation of Intel’s Xeon processors, code named “Nehalem”.

The new PowerEdge portfolio supports native virtualisation and systems management, and Dell is claiming the industry’s best performance per watt with the R710 model.

New PowerEdge servers now ship without optical disk drives, instead, the operating system is provisioned from on-board solid-state memory.

Pricing for the PowerEdge R710 starts from $4,192, including GST.

The new Dell Lifecycle Controller is integrted into all new PowerEdge servers.

Also new is the Dell Management Console, an Altiris-based software solution which claims to reduce or eliminate manual systems management processes.

For storage, Dell has announced the EqualLogic PS6000 storage arrays that integrate seamlessly into existing EqualLogic SANs to form a virtualised pool of storage.

To monitor storage, Dell's SAN Headquarters is a centralized dashboard that monitors performance and events for PS systems. SAN Headquarters is available to any EqualLogic customer with a support agreement at no additional cost.

The EqualLogic PS6000 starts from $32,314, including GST.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
