Server Solutions

Dell PowerEdge servers maximize operational effectiveness and optimize flexibility at any scale. Focused on accelerated performance, enhanced automation and simplified management, the PowerEdge line-up of servers can help you experience worry-free computing through:

  • Greater IT efficiency
  • Superior IT agility
  • Better IT reliability

PowerEdge servers are scalable, flexible, efficient solutions platforms with streamlined and intuitive management that can help you meet changing missions and drive business success.


PowerEdge rack, tower and blade servers are customer-inspired, feature-rich platforms designed to deliver the performance and versatility you need to meet all challenges in almost any setting, from small businesses to enterprise hyper-scale environments.

PowerEdge rack servers

Achieve the performance, efficiency and versatility you need to scale smarter, manage more efficiently, and innovate faster. PowerEdge rack servers are designed with carefully balanced processor memory, IO and internal storage resources. Innovative agent-free management, based on the intelligence of our powerful integrated Dell remote access controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller, helps you more easily deploy, monitor, manage and maintain servers across their entire life cycles.

PowerEdge tower servers

Designed by customers and engineered by Dell, PowerEdge tower servers bring powerful, efficient, versatile operation to users ranging from SOHO to SMB to the data centers of large institutions. Configuration flexibility and large internal capacities allow our towers to grow with you, at your pace, as your business or organization grows.

Converged solutions

Take advantage of one of the broadest, most flexible workload-optimized portfolios of converged solutions, designed to scale traditional and modern applications with common, standards-based architectures and simplified management. You can harness the power of convergence with Dell solutions — from our award winning converged platforms and unified management to hyper-converged solutions optimized for your workloads.

PowerEdge cloud servers

Maximize compute performance and efficiency with versatile solutions tailored to deliver the flexibility and high availability required for your cloud deployments and workloads. Match the right applications to the right cloud with an agile, responsive IT environment powered by Dell PowerEdge cloud servers.

Server Services

Make the most out of your next-generation servers and increase productivity with Dell’s end-to-end services from IT Transformation and Consulting Services to streamlined multivendor deployment, wide-range capability training for your IT team, and automated, proactive and predictive support with Support Assist technology.

Achieve faster response times and lower your total cost of ownership (TCO) with data center and virtualization strategies designed to match your workloads. From storage, networking and servers to software and beyond, our flexible modern architectures span a broad technology portfolio, delivering a distinct advantage over siloed vendors who work inside only a single domain.

Meet your specific storage needs from our wide range of solutions:

  • Modern hardware architectures
  • Innovative software tools
  • End-to-end services

Whether you need performance-optimized flash technologies, ultra-dense storage enclosures, traditional or software-defined storage (SDS) solutions, we can help you choose the right options for your organization’s needs.


Storage is about more than just hardware and management software. While it can be complex, it doesn’t have to be complicated. We can simplify your organization’s storage with scalable, end-to-end solutions and services that are easy to deploy and use, saving you time and money and getting your attention back on business.

Flash storage

Does cost make the many benefits of flash storage unattainable for your organization? Find out how our enterprise array innovations have redefined storage economics, putting tripled transaction speeds, up to 95 percent lower latency and decreased data center footprints1 within your reach.

Software-defined storage

It’s time to design your data center around your workloads. Break free of old, costly models that bind you to proprietary solutions and dictate your configurations. Our adaptable, software-defined storage solutions separate hardware and software, giving you freedom of choice and access to storage innovation as it happens — no more waiting on the next hardware refresh to get the latest, most intelligent software features you need to automate your workload management.

Storage Products

Not every business uses storage the same way — different businesses need different storage products and configurations. Whether you’re looking for intelligent, automated storage solutions, high-bandwidth or high-capacity storage arrays, converged storage and compute solutions, or Windows® NAS appliances, we have a storage solution to fit your needs.

Data protection, backup and recovery

You don’t have to hammer data-retention policies and data recovery needs into boilerplate backup and recovery solutions. Find solutions tailored to fit your unique requirements. From application backups to all-inclusive licensing, from RTO/RPO requirements to powerful de duplication built into appliances, you can choose what your company needs — not what a vendor says you need. Our solutions span physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure, providing greater flexibility. With reduced complexity, broad platform support and near-zero data loss and downtime, we help you match your backup to your business, so you’re thinking less about backup and recovery and more about getting work done.

Storage services

Optimize your storage with a comprehensive suite of services including data protection, expert deployment, up-to-date training for your staff and automated, proactive support.
