By CIOReview | Tuesday, June 30, 2015

FREMONT, CA: Dell recently introduced the Dell PowerEdge C6320 server to help power the discoveries and accuracies being made by top research organizations and enterprises around the world. They believe that HPC and big data are ultimately going to merge in the enterprise.

New PowerEdge C server optimizes the latest compute and memory technologies and it provides up to two times performance improvement over the previous generation on leading HPC benchmark and can achieve 999 Gigaflops on a single server.

“Enterprises increasingly are looking to the high-performance computing market for systems that will enable them to better run their big data and analytics workloads. This new expansion will help them in completing their target,” says Brian Payne, Executive Director of Dell’s Server Solution unit.

The new expansion also offers Dell’s iDRAC8 with lifecycle controller, which enables organizations to automate routine management tasks and make it easier and faster to deploy, monitor and update the servers. The key features of the new server include Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors, 18 cores per socket or 144 cores per 2U chassis, 512GB of DDR4 memory and 72TB of flexible storage.

Dell Power C6320 Provides Solid Hardware Foundation To Comet

Comet, a new petascale supercomputer is designed to transform advanced scientific computing by expanding access and capacity among traditional as well as research domains. It provides ‘HPC for the 99 percent’- essentially it’s about providing high-performance computing to a much larger research community and serving as a gateway to discovery.

“In order to provide research to a larger community of users, we needed to start with a solid hardware foundation. We chose the Dell PowerEdge C6320s over competitive solutions because of leading hardware design and innovation,” says Michael Norman, Principal Investigator for the Comet Project and SDSC Director.
