Dell, Canonical tag team on Ubuntu Server tune-up for PowerEdgies

Dell PowerEdge boots up after Hurricane Sandy acid bath

It is not clear how many servers Hurricane Sandy wiped out, but at least one Dell PowerEdge box in the Maspeth neighborhood of Queens not only survived the flood sufficiently to allow for the company to boot up the box to get its data off, it managed to do that after being soaked in acid-laced salt water. The server in …

When you run a high-frequency trading operation, milliseconds are millions of dollars lost or gained. So speed is just as important as the algorithm you come up with to make your trades. That's why supercomputer makers Appro (just eaten by Cray), Silicon Graphics, and Penguin Computing in 2010 launched special overclocked …

Dell bends shiny server linings for denser clouds

You can only cram so much stuff into a chassis that is two rack units high, and so server maker Dell is shifting to a 4U chassis for its latest "Zeus" PowerEdge C8000 design.

Dell's rapier-thin PowerEdge M420 to render Hobbits?

Dell has disclosed a few more details of the rapier-thin PowerEdge M420 server we spotted back in February. One of those details is that the server isn't literally rapier-thin.

Dell flashes enhanced 12G racks of PowerEdge gear
