Key software for Dell EMC's PowerEdge servers was 'made in India'

Bangalore, July 13 2017: The world leader in servers, Dell EMC,  has globally  (including India) launched the 14th iteration of its popular PowerEdge server family.  The new series of   6 servers which encompasses  both  rack ( horizontal  form factor) and blade ( vertical) are fueled by  Intel's new Xeon Scalable processor family, which was announced simultaneously and are designed with a sharp focus on the booming data centre business.
The PowerEdge R940 can handle mission-critical  applications like Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and e-commerce.  The  R 740 is  more of a workhorse and angled towards the new trend of software defined storage  and cloud based virtual  servers. Full range described here.
Large chunks of the  underlying software  was developed  by Indian engineers at the Dell EMC Bangalore Design Centre, said B. Rudramuni,  Vice President and Centre Head.  In particular, the entire work on Redfish, the industry standard for management of data centres was  done in India.   India is Dell's largest R&D centre outside the US.
Said Rajesh Janey, President & Managing Director, India Enterprise, Dell EMC: “To begin their transformation journey, Indian enterprises have begun to optimize IT by modernizing, automating and transforming technologies, people, and processes. The 14th Generation PowerEdge servers allow  them to Scale, Automate, and Protect their business.”
The scalable business architecture of PowerEdge servers provide  customers   the flexibility to adjust to  changing business needs in an environment of  virtualized and cloud-native workloads that are moving to the new Software-defined data centre  era, added Manish Gupta, General Manager, Compute & Networking Group, Dell EMC India.
( Tech note: Software-defined data centre  (SDDC) is one in which infrastructure is virtualized and delivered “as-a-service” -- based on demand)
In a simultaneous announcement  at its Round Rock, Texas, headquarters  in the US, Dell Inc -- the  company within the Dell family that handles  its client computing offerings -- unveiled a range of desktop virtualization solutions including the flagship Dell Latitude   3480, a  14-inch portable platform,   as well as  the Wyse  Management Suite that allows organisations to  configure and manage  tens of thousands of  'thin client' PCs in a network.
The merger of Dell with storage leader EMC, completed in September last year,  has made this the world's largest  privately owned technology company.
