  • How to optimize performance with frequent server replacements

    Servers are the backbone of modern IT infrastructure, but their lifespan is finite.

    A new generation of servers perform better than its predecessors, but the question is: is the outperformance worth it?

    Open up this study to find out. It covers:

    • Financial costs of delayed server replacements
    • Organizational benefits of timely server replacement
    • The calculated value of timely server upgrades
    • And more.

    Learn more about Dell Technologies Servers with Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor.  

  • Focus: PCIe SSD, NVMe and flash

    PCIe SSD cards fit straight into PCIe slots in servers and array hardware and often brings much higher performance than traditional HDD-format flash drives. A key use case is to provide fast access storage in the server, with the shortest possible route and therefore low latency for important data. That’s still a key workload for PCIe flash, especially with NVMe now offering huge performance gains over existing SAS and SATA drive protocols, with some vendors now also building arrays with PCIe format drives that use NVMe.
