PowerEdge R920 by Dell

Dell PowerEdge R920 is the latest high performing server from Dell which allows customers to deliver faster results, quickly adapt to changing business needs, and improve overall reliability.

The PowerEdge R920 is a 4-socket built on Intel's new E7 processors and can handle demanding and mission critical workloads like ERP or enterprise resource planning, CRM or customer relationship management, e-commerce, and very large databases that includes in-memory databases.

SAP workloads:
  • A world record 4-socket Linux benchmark result of 24,150 benchmark users on the SAP SD 2-Tier benchmark.
  • A 71% improved performance over the previous best E7-4800 4-socket SAP SD benchmark.
  • Nearly the same performance in an SAP environment compared with the previous generation 8-socket servers, providing up to a 50% cost savings in software licensing to the customer.

Oracle workloads:

  • Customers processing more than twice the number of Oracle OLAP queries than with previous generation server configurations and when coupled with a Dell Compellent Flash-optimized solution.
  • More than twice the throughput to process larger Oracle OLAP data sets and twice the reduction in latency.

What makes PowerEdge R920 special compared with previous generations and other solutions on the market? Here are some points:

  • Getting results faster: Applications can perform more transactions in less time, with up to 60 cores of processing power and several significant data access enhancements: like the 8 ultra high performance, ultra low latency PCIe Express Flash drives that far surpass the IOPS performance of rotating drives, the new H730P PowerEdge RAID controller (PERC) that doubles the previous cache size and delivers up to 100% more IOPS performance, and the dual PERC capacity that lets customers maximize performance across the larger number of available solid state drives (SSDs).
    • Scaling to match the challenge: With 6 TB of memory and up to 24 local storage drives, the R920 is designed to allow IT to grow quickly in response to dynamic business conditions. The R920 is also an excellent candidate for threaded HPC applications that require large amounts of shared memory (SMP codes). These “fat nodes” are essential in most modern HPC systems to accommodate applications that scale-up (vs. scale-out). The R920 includes a plug-in for managing or monitoring your HPC environment via Nagios (Linux console). We know our customers want as much CPU performance as they can get for their applications. With that in mind, we’ve integrated agent-free out of band monitoring to free up those critical cycles for greater performance benefits.
    • Running without disruption: With built-in reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features, like Dell’s exclusive Fault Resilient Memory and Intel’s Run Sure Technology the R920 lets customers operate their data centers with added confidence. New integration between OpenManage Essentials and Dell AppAssure software, along with automated embedded server configuration backup via iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller can also help improve service continuity by backing up the entire server stack of hardware, OS and applications so customers can operate with peace of mind.
There's also the record-breaking Dell Fluid Cache for SAN. This is an enterprise application acceleration solution aimed at speeding up response times by bringing the more frequently accessed business data closer to the compute resources. When customers demand a "right now" experience, every second matters in order to remain competitive. That's why we were so proud to reach a record-breaking 5 million IOPS during Dell World demonstration. The PowerEdge R920 will be able to leverage capabilities of Fluid Cache for SAn when it is introduces in the near future.
