Dell expands PowerEdge server portfolio for HPC

Dell has unveiled the PowerEdge C6320, the latest addition in its 13th generation Dell PowerEdge server portfolio for high performance computing (HPC).

The PowerEdge C6320 delivers up to two times performance improvement on the leading HPC performance benchmark, the company said.

PowerEdge C6320 features the latest generation of Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors and provides up to 18 cores per socket (144 cores per 2U chassis), up to 512GB of DDR4 memory and up to 72TB of flexible local storage.

Businesses today are impacted by the high volume of data flowing across their networks. PowerEdge Server is designed to meet the big data and analytics requirements in these companies.

PowerEdge not only provides customers with up to two times of performance improvement over the previous generation but also is ideal to work in hyper-converged systems supporting software-defined strategies and simplifying management.

Additionally, as hyper-converged systems such as Dell Engineered Solutions for VMware EVO: RAIL and Dell’s XC Series of Web-scale Converged Appliances now make up the fastest growing part of the overall converged infrastructure market, the PowerEdge C6320 along with its embedded management software is an ideal platform for these appliances.

The PowerEdge C6320 is designed to offer four independent server nodes in a 2U chassis.  Compared to the previous generation, it provides up to two times the performance improvement on the LinPack spec, up to 45 percent improvement on the SPECint_rate benchmark and up to 28 percent better power efficiency on the Spec_Power benchmark. This allows customers to optimize application performance and productivity while conserving energy use and saving traditional datacenter space.
