Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers

Modular Infrastructure

Modular infrastructure (MI) solutions let you optimize your IT infrastructure for traditional, new and emerging workloads, and provide a path to a modern, software-defined data center. Learn how a modular approach helps you keep pace with modern business demands and workloads.

  • Configure the chassis with scalable modules of compute, storage, and networking fabric.

  • Simplify deployment and administration with unified server management software.

  • Reduce your total cost of ownership and maximize the lifetime value of IT investments.

PowerEdge Modular Infrastructure

Dell EMC PowerEdge Modular Infrastructure is built from the ground up for the software defined data center. The PowerEdge platform is designed to support the right balance of density, capacity, and flexibility to meet the needs of both traditional and cloud-native workloads. The Dell EMC kinetic infrastructure extends the benefits of modular design to a dynamic, memory-centric architecture to deliver apportionable shared compute, storage and networking resources for further workload and infrastructure optimization. Customizable modules of compute, storage and networking are easily and rapidly scaled and managed. And the OpenManage portfolio delivers innovative systems management that makes you more efficient and your infrastructure more productive and reliable.

Choose PowerEdge Modular Infrastructure for worry free IT that is secure and scalable - without compromises.

Drive IT transformation with the PowerEdge FX architecture to scale workloads quickly, adding resources incrementally with efficient chassis management.

Enterprise computing needs are dynamically changing as business and technology leaders embrace strategic computing innovations to create opportunities and gain competitive advantage. The increasing demand for cloud computing, the expansion of mobile use, the widespread adoption of big data techniques and the rise of software defined infrastructures are driving IT decision makers to evaluate fresh approaches in the data center.IT organizations are looking to adopt the latest application workload paradigms that industry leaders are pioneering.

Wherever possible, they want to gain the economic advantages that scale-out technologies have achieved for public cloud providers.Unfortunately, most enterprise lack the agility to rapidly support IT transformation, which hampers their ability to increase agility, scale for improved business results and simplify operations.

To address the challenges introduced by the latest computing trends as well as to reduce reliance on legacy, siloed equipment and operations, the PowerEdge FX converged architecture is designed to give enterprises the flexibility to tailor their IT infrastructure to specific workloads - and the ability to scale and adapt that infrastructure as needs change over time with zero-growth form-factor options.

PowerEdge FX helps deliver the agility, flexibility and secure foundation that businesses need to simplify their operations and increase their business results.
