today more and more Our connected, data-driven world is forcing entities in every sector to navigate uncharted digital waters. Yesterday’s cumbersome legacy infrastructure can’t begin to keep up with rapidly evolving digital demands. Especially in an era where the pace of change is fast and big changes can happen overnight.
Ricky Pereira, Dell EMC Brand Manager at Pinnacle, South Africa’s leading ICT distributor, adds that digital transformation is a business imperative for any company that wants to not only survive but thrive.

“For an organization to future-proof itself, it must be agile, adaptable, scalable and secure, with an IT foundation that can withstand whatever it faces. I have.”
Brought to the industry by Pinnacle, Dell Technologies’ new PowerEdge server series is built to handle today’s most challenging workloads, enabling autonomous and collaborative operations in all types of IT environments, according to Pereira. works. In addition, there is a solution for every environment, from the largest data centers to the harshest and most remote industrial environments.
Three pillars of innovation
Yvonne Maluleke, Dell Enterprise Business Unit Manager at Pinnacle, said Dell Technologies’ new portfolio is built on three pillars: adaptive computing, autonomous computing infrastructure and proactive resilience. I’m here.
“First, adaptive computing optimizes the latest technological advances to ensure predictable and profitable results, from the edge to the hybrid cloud, while easily scaling to address data when needed. We enable businesses to keep up with ever-changing computing demands with a platform designed to be ubiquitous.”
Next, Maluleke cites autonomous computing infrastructure. It is designed to enable entities to respond quickly to any business opportunity by harnessing the power of intelligent systems working together and independently. “This drives rapid digital transformation and productivity, aligns outcomes with business priorities, and frees IT to spend time innovating rather than managing.”
Finally, proactive resilience enables businesses to embrace digital transformation through infrastructure and IT environments designed with secure interactions in mind and the ability to anticipate potential threats before they become problems. You can build trust into “With PowerEdge, security starts at the design stage and continues throughout the supply chain and lifecycle, all the way to disposal,” she adds.
Complexity is inevitable in today’s highly connected digital environment, and cybercriminals know this, Pereira said. This is why Dell has ensured built-in proactive resilience via an immutable silicon-based root of trust.
In addition, the firmware is protected by employing US National Institute of Standards and Technology (Nist) guidelines, including signed firmware updates. Auto-renewal also simplifies certificate management.
“In addition, Dell PowerEdge servers use Secure Enterprise Key Manager (SEKM) to protect data at rest and Confidential Compute CPU technology to protect data in use,” explains Pereira. .
To protect against threats such as counterfeit components, malware, and firmware tampering, Dell’s extensive approach to supply chain security includes anti-counterfeiting, in-process controls, code signing, chassis intrusion, and anti-tamper packaging. are using the tools of
To enable the increased density needed to drive innovation, Dell built a new design to meet the cooling needs of today’s high-density data centers, Pereira said.
“First and foremost, Dell’s Multi-Vector Cooling 2.0 brings an advanced thermal design that streamlines airflow paths for improved cooling. It takes advantage of the extra heat capacity to remove heat more efficiently.”
Next, Dell Leak Sense detection protects liquid-cooled servers, fully managed by Dell’s Integrated Remote Access Controller (iDRAC).
Acceleration is key
Another key benefit is that the new PowerEdge portfolio supports a full stack of GPUs, optimizing performance across all workloads. These include:
- high performance computing
- Artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning training and inference
- data analysis
- Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and high-density virtualization
With the addition of Pereira, Dell believes in continuous innovation and continues to enhance its server portfolio to improve performance, efficiency and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). This is done in several ways.
“Flexible payment solutions enable many options to help our customers align and scale the cost of their IT solutions with their technology consumption and budget availability. Whether you pay for it, rotate your technology every few years, manage your cash flow, or fund your software, Dell has a solution for your needs.”
One example is Apex Flex on Demand. It is a pay-as-you-go consumption model that allows customers to scale their capacity up or down and pay more or less accordingly, paying strictly for what they use.
INNOVATE, ADAPT, GROW
Together with Dell EMC Open Manage and systems management solutions, PowerEdge servers deliver the productivity and performance today’s organizations need to drive innovation, adds Maluleke.
Enable Dell PowerEdge servers to be the engine that drives your business forward. “This latest generation of powerful solutions is poised to meet all the needs of today’s connected environment, now and in the future,” concludes Pereira.
