Your Workload Demands a Server Refresh Now!

Your Workload Demands a Server Refresh Now!

Upgrade your aging servers to the Dell EMC PowerEdge 13th generation server and see dramatic performance improvements. Upgrading your server infrastructure on a regular schedule improves relative performance, consolidation, management efficiency and reliability. IT organizations can save millions of dollars in capital and operating costs annually.


  • Support up to 1,500 simultaneous users.
  • Handle 11x larger OLTP workloads to process 1,200 transactions per second.
  • Get 50% faster decision support.
  • Manage 3.1x as many heavily loaded virtual machines.
  • Gain up to 8.9x workload performance improvement.
  • Complete more than 3,000,000 reads per second for fraud prevention.

In addition, relative server performance declines over time as costs increase. On average, server performance erodes by 14% annually. By the fifth year, a server has only 40% of the performance it had when it was new. Lower performance and higher failure rates increase unplanned downtime by 20% annually.

Modern features enhance asset management. As businesses scale quickly, modern management tools allow better workload tracking and performance analysis. Upgraded servers have the latest firmware and patching updates, keeping devices secure and in compliance with enterprise and government specifications.

Optimized systems accelerate performance. Modern servers improve the capability for higher virtual machine density and larger virtual machines. This allows high-end business applications to migrate and run in a virtualized environment. Fewer, more powerful systems can also reduce energy and cooling costs, data center space requirements, maintenance time and licensing costs.

Predictive diagnostics improve reliability. Continued usage beyond the optimal life span of servers often causes unplanned downtime due to mechanical components and software aging. Newer systems come with predictive capabilities that warn of incompatibility issues or imminent failures. Automatic notification and proactive support improve reliability, adhering to uptime Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

Soon-to-expire service warranties. Following the average server life cycle, service contracts typically expire after three to five years. More frequent failures result in higher labor costs, and replacement parts are expensive and hard to find. Altogether, buying a new server is often more economical than extending the service contract on a legacy system.

Empower your IT and transform your business. Dell EMC PowerEdge 13G servers powered by Intel Xeon processors deliver faster, more reliable performance for virtualization, converged IT, hybrid cloud and big data. Build a modern data center with server power that optimizes workloads and automates management.
