Dell EMC and Microsoft have been partnering on solutions for SQL Server for decades. Successful implementation of a comprehensive database platform such as Microsoft SQL Server requires design coordination between the implemented software features and the underlying infrastructure. That infrastructure includes CPU processing power, memory resources, storage design, and networking service. For any type of application workload, Dell EMC is a single source for the essential infrastructure of your SQL Server platform.
The Dell EMC PowerEdge server portfolio offers many combinations of CPU processor and memory configurations. The configurations are suitable for everything from small departmental applications to the largest mission-critical systems like enterprise resource planning (ERP), data warehousing, advanced analytics, eCommerce, and the full spectrum of custom applications. Our storage portfolio provides high-capacity, high-performance, and reliable storage for both unstructured and structured data. Our comprehensive storage product line complements the innovative SQL Server transition into a complete data hub.
Customers who deploy SQL Server 2019 with Dell EMC infrastructure can deliver transformational insights from both structured and unstructured data with the combined power of SQL Server and Apache Spark. SQL Server also requires a mixture of technologies for client access, server-to-server networking, and server-to-storage networking. Dell EMC’s vision for the network is based on a disaggregated model offering an open ecosystem in which organizations can select from a wide range of innovative, industry-standard network applications, operating systems, and hardware platforms. This approach gives customers maximum control over the technologies that they choose and the architectures that they adopt, resulting in measurable cost savings and increased service agility.
