HOPKINTON, MASS, AUGUST 21, 2018 — Dell EMC is launching Dell EMC PowerEdge MX, the industry’s newest high performance, modular infrastructure, designed to support a wide variety of traditional and emerging data center workloads. PowerEdge MX offers the first modular infrastructure architecture designed to easily adapt to future technologies and server disaggregation.

With its unique kinetic infrastructure, customers can break free from the bounds of technology silos and time-consuming, routine operational management while also dynamically assigning IT to optimally match different applications and needs.

“While emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, IoT and software-defined storage and networking, offer competitive benefits, their workloads can be difficult to predict and pose new challenges for IT departments,” said Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, president and general manager, Dell EMC Server and Infrastructure Systems. “PowerEdge MX enables a modular approach to flexibly build and combine compute, storage and networking, so organizations can transform their IT in a way that optimizes resources and offers investment protection for future generations of technological advances.”

The PowerEdge MX ecosystem includes a newly designed chassis and precisely-sized resource blocks of servers and storage that connect to the infrastructure through a smart I/O fabric.

“We’re looking forward to offering PowerEdge MX to a host of customers that are looking for greater simplicity in their IT environment, but with the flexibility to support the full swath of virtual environments and workloads—all with a single source for management.  With the rise of modern workloads, such as artificial intelligence and IoT, the demands on IT are growing and are increasingly changing. An investment in PowerEdge MX can help customers tackle all of these challenges while offering investment protection to benefit from full composability down the line.”
