Better performance and lower costs are driving factors in the hardware you choose for your data center. In choosing a newer server and storage solution, you can acquire enough processing power to virtualize older servers and consolidate them onto the new solution, which can increase performance dramatically while keeping costs down.
In our tests, the Dell PowerEdge R720 server with Compellent storage was able to take the place of four older HP ProLiant DL380 G6 servers by supporting the same 2,000-user Exchange Server 2010 workload as the older four combined. In addition to supporting four workloads, the Dell PowerEdge R720 was also more power efficient, supporting 116.0 percent more users per watt than the HP ProLiant DL380 G6. With such increases in performance and decreases in power consumption, the Dell PowerEdge R720 can deliver payback in as little as 18 months, providing an affordable consolidation platform for your business.
