This week marks the finish line of the Dell EMC PowerEdge with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC product portfolio launch. With the release of the R7525, we are excited to have a complete set of servers that handle any of your data center needs. Each server has a unique and compelling design, to handle a spectrum of workloads better than previous generations.Now that our products are live, it is time to share how to best use them. The single socket servers (R6515 & R7515) have been well received for virtualization, business applications and data analytics. The two socket servers (R6525 & C6525) are great for industrial R&D, data analytics and virtualization. Further, the newfound power of the EPYC processors creates a great divide in how to optimize your data center, balancing single and dual socket servers. Single-sockets are ideal for traditional workloads and dual-socket for compute-intensive emerging workloads.R7525, THE POWERHOUSEThe R7525 can be a powerhouse in your data center because of its performance in VDI, SAP, and data analytics. The R7525 has 16 percent lower latency compared to the R7425 when running a Windows 10 VDI scaling benchmark. This performance increase was seen across all levels of knowledge worker scaling. To go with this, we also ran the SAP SD Users benchmark. The R7525 set a new world record for two-socket servers with 68,896 total users. This is an improvement over our previous record on the R6525. The R7525 enables not only more users but also a better experience. This will help boost productivity in your data center and among workers in your virtual environments.To top this off, we compared the Spark-bench k-means clustering algorithm on the R7525 to the HPE Proliant DL380 with a similarly priced processor. The R7525 was able to run the code in just 47 minutes compared to 74 on the DL380, a 36 percent improvement. That’s a free 30-minute coffee break! With the R7525, data scientists can save time or conduct more robust training and testing on their AI and ML workloads.50 PERCENT SAVINGS ON WINDOWS SERVER LICENSESWith so much emphasis on core counts, these new servers have created a splash among IT vendors regarding licenses. Windows Server licenses are driven by core count, so higher core counts mean higher costs. That’s where Dell Technologies, Microsoft, and AMD came together to offer up to 50 percent off their Windows Server 2019 OEM licenses. When customers select PowerEdge servers with 2nd generation AMD EPYC processors the second half of their licenses are free. Windows Server 2019 OEM licensing costs are free beyond:the first 32 cores for the PowerEdge R6515 and R7515the first 64 cores for the R6525 and the R7525This includes Windows Server 2019 Standard and Datacenter, but only applies to licenses purchased through the OEM channel. Licenses purchased during the promotional period will last throughout the life of the server or the operating system, whichever is greater. To find out more about the offer please go to this link.Now that some of your questions regarding TCO have been answered, we want to reinforce the great TCO story of PowerEdge with AMD. See here and here.PLEASE ASK US QUESTIONSIt’s important to do more than tell compelling stories. Next time you are refreshing your data center, take a second to consider the options. The reason Dell built PowerEdge as a well-rounded server portfolio is to provide our customers with flexible and targeted solutions for any workload or special need.

Unlike many of SU’s athletic facilities, Tennity is not owned or operated by SU Athletics — it’s owned by the Department of Recreation Services. It’s a recreational facility. Though Rec Services tries to accommodate the team, Flanagan said there’s more he’d like to see done in Tennity to raise the profile of his program.

How greedy can the richest of the rich become?Ravi Bedi, JodhpurAfter India won the cricket World Cup, the Maharashtra chief minister made a demand for awarding the Bharat Ratna to Sachin Tendulkar. But by declaring himself an actor by profession, he has outrightly disgraced the sport which has given him everything possible on this earth. It’s unbelievable to read that a man like Sachin, in order to pay less income tax, claimed that he is an actor and not a proud cricketer. V B Jaitly, Dehradun read more

Dr. Carolyn Hayle is a programme director at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus and was the keynote speaker at the opening of the National Tourism Symposium. Dr. Hayle brought a riveting rally for government to pay attention to the details and try to figure out how to keep more money in the country. Dr. Hayle is a near 20 year educator and so another strong thrust in her presentation was on training as she encouraged the private sector to angle for the residual energy of their staff, so that they easily go that extra mile. Also presenting at the two day National Tourism Symposium held at Beaches Resort Villages and Spa was the Executive Director of CDEMA; he said Disaster preparedness has everything to do with tourism. Ronald Jackson reminded of the plethora of risks and said governments must formulate plans to mitigate any fall out. read more

St Lawrence High School, School (SLHS), Kolkata, with their alumni St Lawrence Old Boys’ Association (SLOBA) hosted Ensemble 2019 and celebrated International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) on April 6, 2019, at St Lawrence High School ground.

Along with Mehuli there were a few notable shooters including Ankur Das, national champion in para-shooting and Abhinav Shaw, the youngest gold medalist in Khelo India. “The environment was somewhat like the one we had in Youth Olympics village, with so many national flags around. In sports, the rivalry is always present, but it is only sports which bring nations, races, ethnicity together. I am happy to be part of celebrating this wonderful day,” said Mehuli The basic intention of the initiative was to make school children aware of the fact that sport can be used as a tool to foster development and peace.
