Dell challenges blades with rack workstation

Better than a blade?

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Dell has launched a rack workstation to challenge blade workstations.

The advantage is that the hardware, and data, is kept in a central server room or data centre and so is more secure. The architecture also removes heat and noise usually created by desktop machine from the working environment.

Prices start at $1,869 (£936). The boxes, called Precision R5400, have dual and quad Xeon processors, two PCIe OpenGL graphics cards and support PCI and PCIx.

The company also announced the Dell FX100 remote access solution, which claims to provide hardware based encryption and compression with no impact on performance. This includes a "portal device" for users to plug peripherals into.
