The #1 in Hyperconverged Infrastructure Adopting Latest PowerEdge Servers

first_imgIt’s an exciting time for innovation in technology. We’ve all heard these technology buzz words: Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and augmented and virtual reality. It’s hard to even imagine what’s next. What we do know is that to stay competitive in this world of ever-emerging technology, you need to transform or get left behind.One way that organizations are transforming their business is through hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). The agility, scalability and flexibility HCI delivers continues to drive customer adoption, with the industry growing close to 50% since this time last year. And once again, thanks to our fantastic customers, Dell EMC is #1 in HCI system sales with 32% share.[1]What makes the Dell EMC HCI portfolio so powerful? One big reason is that our portfolio is built on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers. That’s right, the #1 hyperconverged systems portfolio is powered by the #1 server portfolio, and, together, we offer industry-leading solutions, built on architecture optimized for HCI workloads, that deliver the latest and greatest technology.And now, the best in hyperconverged infrastructure gets even better as Dell EMC HCI offerings, including VxRail, VxFlex and partner aligned solutions, begin shipping in configurations that include the latest PowerEdge servers with 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Optane™ technology. These PowerEdge enhancements make it simple to incorporate new technologies that drive better business results and support your workloads faster and easier. New fibre channel (FC) HBA support for VxRail allows you to more easily migrate to HCI, and continue to run traditional workloads that demand the data services and storage depth provided by FC storage arrays. Plus, Dell EMC HCI integrated systems built on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers provide a single point of support with full lifecycle management for the entire system. It’s a winning solution.As data volumes continue to grow, you need to ensure you have the right infrastructure in place to handle the increase in processing demands. On Dell EMC VxRail, our flagship product and the fastest growing HCI system, we saw an average increase of 28% in processor performance with the new 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors.[2] In addition, VxRail becomes even more powerful with the addition of Intel® Optane™ SSDs as a cache drive. In testing on certain workloads using Intel Optane drives, we saw a reduction in latency of up to 30% for VxRail.We strive to create cutting-edge solutions that help our customers do more. And introducing this new Intel technology delivers on this goal by taking our HCI portfolio to the next level. What it means to our customers is a more consistent, predictable and reliable high-performing hyperconverged infrastructure – and this is part of what is fueling the rapid growth of the hyperconverged market. So whatever technology you are looking to implement, whether now or in the future, rest assured that Dell EMC HCI solutions built on the latest PowerEdge servers can get you there.Learn more about Dell EMC Hyperconverged Infrastructure solutions.[1] IDC Worldwide Quarterly Converged Systems Tracker, June 25, 2019[2] Among top 3 product brands, IDC Worldwide Quarterly Converged Systems Tracker, June 25, 2019last_img read more

Nash expects bold show from Your Busy as veteran bids for second Kerry National

first_img “I can’t couldn’t be happier with the horse. We always thought he was better on nice ground, though he has won on heavy and on soft. He actually won a hurdle race there on heavy,” said Nash. “He had his last couple of bits or work at the weekend and he had a jump this morning and he couldn’t be in better shape, so I’m really looking forward to it. Hopefully, the meeting will be on. “He’s going there at least as well as last year, if not a bit better, so it’s fingers crossed. “Katie’s back on again tomorrow – we couldn’t take her off him! They got on so well last year and he’s got a grand weight of 10st 10lb. “Ground will obviously be an issue but I’d say it will be an issue for a lot of them, but as far as our horse is concerned I couldn’t be happier.” Owner JP McManus has four representatives, each one with a different trainer – Charles Byrnes’ Shanpallas, Enda Bolger’s Colour Squadron, Philip Dempsey’s Jacksonslady and British raider Cantlow, from Paul Webber’s stable. “Shanpallas ran a good race in the Galway Plate. He’d prefer a bit drier ground, but he’s in good form and we’re hoping for the best,” said McManus’ racing manager Frank Berry. “Jacksonslady got knocked about a bit in the Plate, had a rough passage and has come back well now. Although meetings on Monday and Tuesday had to be abandoned due to waterlogging, day three of the Harvest Festival looks set to go ahead after the course was declared fit for racing on Tuesday afternoon and Nash reports his 12-year-old to be in top form as he attempts to complete back-to-back victories in the three-mile showpiece. Katie Walsh, who partnered Your Busy to a half-length triumph over Pass the Hat 12 months ago, will be back on aboard the gelding for the first time since then. Owner-trainer James Nash is looking forward to Your Busy putting up a strong defence of his crown in the Guinness Kerry National at Listowel on Wednesday. “Cantlow didn’t make the cut in the Plate and was a little bit disappointing over hurdles that day, but he’s back in good form and hopefully he won’t mind the ground. “Colour Squadron won his beginners chase at Killarney the other day. He’s come out of the race well and is in good form. You’d be hoping he’d run well.” Mouse Morris also throws four horses at the race – Rule The World, Horendus Hulabaloo, Ravished and Rogue Angel, who was second in a two-and-a-half-mile handicap chase at Listowel on Sunday. “The ground might be the question mark with Rule The World, but he was running a big race in the Galway Plate when he slipped up,” said the County Tipperary handler. “Horendus Hulabaloo has won around there on soft ground, Ravished won in Limerick on soft ground and Rogue Angel ran a good race there the other day on soft ground.” Ireland’s champion jumps trainer Willie Mullins has a formidable hand with no less than five runners, headed by Galway Plate runner-up The Paparrazi Kid. Alelchi Inois, Indevan, Un Beau Roman and Urano complete his quintet. Press Associationlast_img read more
