Dell’s new PowerEdge R300 and T300 servers have industry-leading performance, memory and high-availability features previously only available in more expensive systems designed for larger businesses.

“Customers want faster performing systems to run their already taxed computer networks at a price that won’t break the bank,” says Doug Downing, enterprise brand manager, Dell South Africa. “We listened, and our new R300 and T300 servers deliver the kind of technology innovation our customers care about – more performance and reliability without more cost.”
Utilising the quad-core Intel Xeon x5460 processor, the PowerEdge R300 achieves up to 26% better performance than the HP DL320 G5p, and up to 51% over the IBM System X 3250. The T300 tower server achieves up to 31% better performance compared to the HP ML310 G5 server, and up to 51% better performances than the IBM System X 3200.
The new R300 and T300 servers also help companies like Omneon better handle memory intensive applications by offering 24Gb of memory. Essential, high-availability features include hot-plug hard drives and redundant power supplies to help increase uptime and prevent loss of data access.
Additionally, the R300 can help provide energy cost savings for customers.
Dell’s PowerEdge R300 and T300 offer built-in security features to help customers better protect their server investments, including:
* Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to strengthen security, enabling better authentication, encryption and protection of critical information;
* Internal lock-down USB to reduce risk of data loss and security breaches; and
* Locking bezels and a chassis intrusion switch to protect against unauthorised access to system hard drives, peripherals and the control panel.
Dell’s new services portfolio, ProSupport, gives small and medium businesses greater flexibility to choose the support options that make the most sense for their companies. These service options, combined with features delivered in the R300 and T300 servers, make it easier for customers to spend less time worrying about their IT so they can focus more on productivity and growing their businesses.
