Caterham F1 Team, BOCESm, Ma’anshan Spanesi Car Repair Equipment tap Dell PowerEdge VRTX

Caterham F1 Team, Washington-Saratoga Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) and Ma’anshan Spanesi Car Repair Equipment have tapped Dell PowerEdge VRTX, a converged IT solution for remote and small office environments.

These customers have benefitted from the space-saving design, functionality, cost and performance of Dell PowerEdge VRTX.

Dell is also enhancing the PowerEdge VRTX to help customers protect their crucial data, and is introducing a new lease promotion in North America that allows customers to reduce their total cost of ownership and manage budget constraints more effectively.

Dell Financial Services is offering a Fair Market Value (FMV) lease payment deferral on PowerEdge VRTX systems for customers in the United States and Canada. Customers can take advantage of award winning technology with no out of pocket spend until February 2014.


Washington-Saratoga Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), one of the largest BOCES in New York State, is using VRTX to consolidate server to one efficient unit from three or four.

“One of the biggest attractions of the Dell PowerEdge VRTX for us is the low cooling and power requirement, because our districts generally do not have purpose-built data centers with robust air conditioning and power supplies,” said Ken Morrill, network analyst, Washington-Saratoga Board of Cooperative Educational Services.

Ma’anshan Spanesi Car Repair Equipment, a small manufacturing company based in China that specializes in car repair and maintenance equipment, turned to Dell PowerEdge VRTX over HP servers and reduced the total cost of ownership by 30 percent.

Caterham F1 Team, a Formula One team based in the United Kingdom, tapped the VRTX space-saving design and enterprise-class capabilities to use as their trackside IT infrastructure, greatly simplifying the process of getting IT equipment to the race sites.

“VRTX will also allow us to improve our trackside disaster recovery as we will easily be able to run two units as a failover pair in separate locations at all times,” said Joe Birkett, senior IT engineer, Caterham F1 Team.
