Living in a technology-led business world where continuous upgrading and enhancement is a way of life, any business can’t afford not to update its systems but must also be selective on which is the most cost-efficient option. Spending more for technology without understanding or maximizing its use is tantamount to a loss as well. So get educated regarding these new technologies to be able to make smart investments.
This is Dell's PowerEdge T620.
In a press conference held on March 7, technology giant Dell introduced the latest PowerEdge servers running on the newest Intel Xeon E5 processor in a virtual launch at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel. This portfolio of blade, rack and tower PowerEdge servers are optimized for use in demanding enterprise environments with the PowerEdge 12th generation servers as the company’s highest performing and most manageable servers. With this new server series, customers ranging from small businesses to hyper-scale data centers can maximize efficiency by streamlining and automating operations, while achieving better business application performance and business continuity.
“Dell designed the new PowerEdge servers with input gathered from more than 7,700 customer interactions in 17 countries across four continents,” said Dell Philippines' country manager, Christopher Papa.
“Our customers told us that they need end-to-end solutions to handle the complex workload problems they face every day. As such, we built our new generation of servers, systems management and workload solutions to address the needs of business end-users who require maximum performance to run mission-critical applications and IT departments which demand more efficient, secure and reliable operations.”

The virtual launch was held simultaneously in neighboring countries as well with speakers that included top Dell officials from the different regions. Dell explains the vast opportunities for its server business co-existing with cloud computing solutions today, from a technology and business perspective.
Dell also announced OpenManage Essentials, a new management console, which monitors the health of Dell servers, storage and switches. By interfacing with the Dell KACE K1000 Management Appliance
, OpenManage Essentials sends user-defined server, storage and network health status alerts to the K1000 service desk.
The PowerEdge 12th generation servers enable customers to increase application performance,
availability and scalability, with new capabilities that:
- Improve responsiveness and provide fast customer insights, delivering up to 18 percent more Microsoft® SQL® Server transactions per second than HDD storage, with new industry leading technologies like Dell Express Flash, the first server design with front accessible, hot swappable PCIe solid state disks.
- Deliver up to three times the number of mailboxes with the capacity and capability for Microsoft Exchange with up to two times more message processing with Scalable Storage.
- Accelerate Oracle database applications with up to 86 percent reduction in transaction response time performance with Dell Compellent Data Progression Automated Tiered Storage feature.
- Consolidate Oracle RAC database workloads at a rate of up to 8:1, with up to 84 percent increase in power savings.
Business Continuity is ensured when security is maximized by authenticating the integrity of updates using digitally signed firmware, safeguarding access to passwords and certificates with iDRAC Credential Vault, and using Data Wipe to remove critical data from retired or repurposed servers. Uptime is maximized with an array of reliability, availability, and serviceability features including hot swappable fans, disks and spare power supplies, plus unique capabilities such as Failsafe Hypervisor and Memory Page Retire.
