Dell announced it continues to push the boundaries of high-performance computing (HPC) and big data by unveiling the PowerEdge C6320, the latest addition in its 13th generation Dell PowerEdge server portfolio. The PowerEdge C6320 delivers up to two times performance improvement on the leading HPC performance benchmark(1), and has the right mix of cost-efficient compute and storage in a compact, 2U chassis for HPC and hyper-converged solutions and appliances, allowing customers to meet demanding workload needs.
“As organizations continue to be inundated with information, there’s an increasing correlation between data analytics and high performance computing,” said Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, vice president and general manager, Dell Server Solutions. “From powering the revolutionary discoveries being made by top research organizations to helping accelerate product and service deployment for leading IT organizations, the PowerEdge C6320 is the latest example of Dell’s commitment to helping organizations future-proof their business while enabling companies to leverage information for competitive advantage.”
Manish Gupta, Director, Enterprise Solutions Group, Dell India said: “High Performance Computing is increasingly becoming relevant in traditional IT departments due to accelerating business demands. We foresee that this business-critical capability can define the effectiveness of organisations in the future with the growing impact and necessity of Big Data and Analytics. Our latest PowerEdge Server is designed to provide our customers with up to two times of performance improvement over the previous generation that will give them an edge in today’s competitive business environment. The solution is also ideal to work in hyper-converged systems supporting software-defined strategies and simplifying management.”
The notion of aligning HPC and big data has steadily gained traction over the past few years. As analytics and big data continue to be top of mind for organizations of all sizes and industries, traditional IT departments are considering HPC solutions to help provide rapid and reliable information to business owners so they can make more informed decisions. As Dell’s latest future-ready HPC solution, the Dell PowerEdge C6320 helps power the discoveries and insights being made by top research organizations and enterprises around the world.
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. According to IDC, sales of hyper-converged systems are expected to increase 116.2 percent in 2015 over the previous year to $806.8 million (USD). The market is expected to experience a 59.7 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2014 to 2019, when it will generate more than $3.9 billion (USD) in total sales(2).
